Sweet Serendipity’s purpose is to bring beauty and joy to the world. Wedding florals/decor and custom wedding favors are where we shine. Along with making your flower dreams come true, we will press or cast in the resin parts of your flowers for you to keep forever. Would you like your bridesmaids or guests to have a necklace, bracelet, earrings, a bookmark, or many other options with your flowers in them? How about an arch to get married in front of? Maybe a flower wall?
Don’t let your dreams be dreams! Let me help you make them real.

Have you ever had a full plate? Not like Thanksgiving-plate full, but like Maid of Honor at your best friend’s wedding while also being the florist full. I have!
When she asked me to be her MOH, we’d already decided I would do her flowers. 12 Centerpieces, 6 Bouquets, 8 Corsages, 8 Boutonnieres, 4 Table Arrangements, 1 head table garland, and 1 beautiful bride. It was a big job, but I was happy to do it. Since the wedding was in Chicago and I am based in NC, I dove into research to find everything I would need.
When the event was coming fast, I nervously packed my car with all the hard goods for the wedding, along with my beautiful MOH dress, and started the 13-hour drive. I arrived and got right to work with my duties, both as a florist and as the Maid of Honor. There were times when I was running around like a crazy person, all dolled-up, and I promise you I didn’t get much sleep the night before as I continued to trash my hotel room with mounds and mounds of beautiful flowers.
I blinked and there we were, at the wedding. I blinked again and it was all over. And I loved every second of it. I wouldn’t change a thing about that week, and while I don’t recommend this challenge to the weak-hearted, I do recommend it. You best be hungry.

A: My friends call me the DIY queen! I have a knack for repurposing and problem-solving in creative ways. I absolutely love to go thrifting for old things to give new life to.
Q: What is your favorite thing about elopements?
A: For me, elopements have always felt very romantic. When you elope, the wedding isn’t about the location, or the flowers, or the cake, it’s about the love between two people. My parents eloped to Las Vegas, were married by Elvis, and met Mr. T in a casino! The only people who attended were their siblings. I grew up with that story and that is why I have never had a “dream wedding”, but a dream feeling. I want everyone to smile like my parents when they talk about their wedding. I want to make dreams happen.
Lindsay did such a beautiful job doing the bouquets and centerpieces at my daughter’s wedding. I couldn’t be happier how everything turned out…just gorgeous! Thank-you for making Katelyn’s and Bryan’s wedding that much more special on THEIR day💕!
