When Harry Met Sallie...

When you come visit our AB South Shore studio, you will find all things wedding and event related-- canvas prints of our portfolio, unique vases & rental decor, and too many bridal magazines to count..! What you may not notice is a small, framed marriage license hanging amongst the photos of our work. 

It hangs there pretty indiscreetly with its lightly scrolled and faintly stained countenance, yet it holds a sense of marvel for our AB team. A gift from a friend who happened upon it in a vintage shop, the marriage license is a novel remnant of a marriage from 1893. One hundred and twenty-one years later, and the document that bound two loves together is still intact! 

What's even more delightful about this marriage license is who got married: one, 'Harry Murray' to one, 'Sallie Miller.' We think it is so fun that Harry met Sallie... and they married!

I'm sure Harry and Sallie's romance was a bit different than the famed 1989 When Harry met Sally movie (25 years ago?!), but still what fun! I wonder what flowers Sallie carried on her wedding day...?!

'From this Day Forward' Improper Bostonian Feature

As much as we love designing for our wedding and event clients, we also have a lot of fun working on photoshoots and editorials! They give us an opportunity to play with fresh ideas for the season and give light on upcoming trends.

When the Improper Bostonian came to us to design for their latest wedding feature, we were delighted to spread the floral love with some of our designs! An extra treat was to work with our industry friends like photographer extraordinaire Katie Noble, party rental company Be Our Guest, and caterer, the Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library.

This shoot focused on bringing 'something new' into your wedding fashion. Weddings are steeped in tradition, yet they can be a fun place to mix in modern, edgy twists that will give tradition a new face.

For flowers, try unconventional bouquets shapes, exotic flowers, or unique hits of color to freshen your floral look.

To see the full feature pick up a copy of the Improper Bostonian this week! Or check out some looks at: 'From this Day Forward.'

For the past few months we have been working diligently to create our new website! We are so happy about the results and we hope you like it too! This new website features bolder images, an updated and more accessible portfolio, as well as fun insights into who we are as a company. 

Over Artistic Blossom's 28 years in the wedding and event industry we have surely evolved many times with the changing tastes and styles. As a company that started in the perm and puffy-sleeved 1980's we probably never dreamed of a website never mind an Artistic Blossom's Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram! But here we are 2014! And we have a new website to prove it!

So take a peek, look around, and don't forget to tell us what you think!

What Makes Our Team Special

During wedding season, every weekend our team is delivering incredible service and design to our clients. We are all fortunate at Artistic Blossoms to truly love what we do and we have fun doing it. We dance while we design, listen to good music, chat about our summers, and just down-right love working with each other.

Along with flowers many of us have other passions and hobbies. Patrick owns his own massage and wellness center, Kelly is an artist and glassblower, Camille is an avid sportsfan, Erin works with animals, and Victoria is an aspiring installation artist. Our variety of skills and interests meld together to create a cohesive whole, channeling all of our passions through the flowers. We never know which skill we might need to use next in an industry that is ever-evolving and bringing fresh challenges.

A prime example of this, is our amazing wedding this past weekend at the Boston Public Library. After working for months on a specialized design plan, pre-ordering all of the glassware and flowers, two days before the wedding the glassware failed to ship-in after being continually backordered. There was nothing to do except move forward with our design plan, so using her formal art experience Victoria hand gilded and painted new glass containers for this wedding. Looking identical to what we had pre-ordered, the arrangements looked amazing and the event went off without a hitch.

Whether we have to hand paint your vase-ware, custom build a chuppah, or personally select each blossom, Artistic Blossoms is committed to seeing your vision through with professionalism, skill, and whole lot of passion!
