Tell us about your creative process! After you consult with a couple, what steps do you take?
I truly get inspired by each couple who walks through our door. When we initially get an inquiry with a client we approach it one of two ways. If the bride is local, we like to ask them to come in for an in-person meeting where we can learn more about them and their vision. If they are not local, then we will set up an initial phone call. So much can get lost over email, so hearing their voice and understanding where they want to focus most of the energy of their day is important. Then we draft a proposal and an inspiration board with simple concepts we’re wanting to include. For design boards we pull inspiration from everywhere: art, architecture, the gardens our parent company designs, the lace patterns on her dress… anything that speaks to us! We compile them and present them to our client in a beautiful package. What is most important to our team is that the bride and her fiancé and family are comfortable, so our designs stay fluid until right about a month before her big day. Then we lock everything in, final walk-throughs, bridal portraits and get ready to execute!
Talk us through how you choose the flowers.

Big thanks to Megan for giving us a glimpse into what the wedding floral design process involves. It’s easy to see what a passion she has for her work, and it shows in the oh-so-lovely designs she creates! To inquire with Lanson B. Jones & Co., reach out through their vendor profile!
