We are located south of Nashville, making our services very convenient for many Nashville events. Completed artwork can be shipped wherever you call home after the process is complete!
We recommend booking as soon as you know your wedding date or none months out! Due to space we can only take a certain number of bouquets each month. Spots fill up fast! – At times we can accommodate last minute orders, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask!
The fresher the better! Flowers that are brought to the studio the day after the event are going to preserve better and therefore look much better in the resin piece. I will not accept flowers more than four days past the event date.
The preservation process is a delicate and very slow process that can take up to six months from the time of drop-off. I will keep you updated on the process and let you know when it is time to choose a design for your forever piece.
Recipients will be emailed design options for approval before the resin pour process begins. The layout is subject to change slightly during the encasing process to ensure the quality of the overall piece.
Yes! Preserving your already dried bouquet is a great way to protect it and display it in your home for years to come! At time dust and debris can get into these flowers and it may show up in resin, we are not responsible for this.
Flowers are preserved with silica gel/sand that helps to preserve the color and shape of the flowers. This process can cause some darkening of colors such as red and white. The red may deepen to more of a wine color and the white may have a more yellow/vintage feel. Overall, your flowers and greenery are experiencing extreme chemical reactions and might change through the encasing process.
Those clear spots are bruises. Flowers are handled a LOT, from the person who picked it, the florist, the photographer, and then well loved the day of the wedding. These bruises can show up at any time and then are exposed by the resin poured on them. We do our best to handle flowers with care and touch delicate petals as little as possible. Things you can do to prevent this are keeping your flowers safely in a vase with water after the ceremony and being careful to not lay on them their side at any point. You can also let your florist know that the flowers will be preserved and that you would like the flowers to be as fresh as possible.
All resin will unfortunately amber overtime due to the fact that it is a polymer. We use what we have found to be the most clear and quality resin available, which does contain UV inhibitors. The UV inhibitors help delay any yellowing from UV exposure, but it’s best to keep your pieces out of areas with direct sunlight and elevated temperatures.
Yes! We are happy to receive flowers shipped to the studio. We will send you instructions through email upon your booking. These flowers will need to be overnighted to our location in middle Tennessee which can cost between $50-$250.
