This week for our Vendor Spotlight, we chatted with Robyn from Bare Root Flora. Her whimsical designs are breathtaking and we can’t wait to work with her this season!
How would you describe what you do?
Bare Root Flora is a boutique design house specializing in lush, textural, wild floral designs for stylish, organic weddings and social events. For our clients, flowers are a huge part of the look and feel of their wedding, and it’s why they come to us! We put all of who we are into flowers and I think clients can see and sense that.
What is your idea of a dream project?
Dream projects for me usually revolve around amazing clients and vendor teams. Being a part of a synergistic team of creatives all putting their best work out there to give a couple their dream day—that is my dream project.
What has been your favorite wedding or event that you worked or attended? Why?
I don’t think I could pick just one! I have had the privilege of working on some truly memorable events and they’ve been really special to me for lots of reasons. I think when I really connect personally with my clients it takes their wedding to the next level for me—both professionally and personally!
What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?
Being the captain of my own ship! It is so exciting and empowering to know that the big decisions impacting my business are made by me. I never realized exactly how fulfilling it would be to be the boss, but I have to say it’s one of the most rewarding aspects for me. And of course, the actual design! There’s nothing more satisfying than creating something beautiful with my own hands and some gorgeous flowers!
What advice would you give a younger you?
Don’t waste time doing what you don’t love. Life is short, so make your own opportunities and seize them!
What’s your favorite trend you are seeing in your industry?
I love the gorgeous, wild, looser looks we’ve seen over the past few years and that we’ll continue to see in 2016! And I’m thrilled that people are embracing beautiful and diverse foliages as a big part of the floral palette of the wedding.
What’s a color/flower scheme that you would love to do?
Well, I live for color! As beautiful as a neutral wedding is, nothing inspires me as much as flowers and foliages in deep, rich tones. And I can’t seem to design anything that doesn’t strongly feature a pomegranate or artichoke, so bring on the produce!
