Preserving your flowers is a detailed process. Each bouquet is photographed from multiple angles immediately upon arrival to our Design Studio. Your bouquet, wedding flower arrangements and other special event flowers are then disassembled before the flower preservation process can begin. Blooms are separated from their stems so that each flower can be preserved individually. This separation is imperative to our ability to maintain the shape of each flower.

All flowers and inclusions (invitation, ribbon, pearl pins, bouquet jewels, etc.) are inventoried and stored. Our preservationist make notes about the status of each bloom. Our preservationists then rehydrate your flowers and carefully pre-treat and prepare the flowers for dehydration and preservation, determining the best method and timeline for the types of flowers received. Your flowers then enter the dehydration phase of our preservation process, which usually takes between two and three weeks, depending on the type of flower. Once dehydrated, your flowers are removed from the dehydration process and stored in a carefully climate-controlled storage area, awaiting their turn in our Design Studio.
A few weeks after your wedding or event, youíll work by appointment with one of the Design Consultants, either over the phone or in our Design Studio. Design consultations usually last about 30 minutes, during which time our specially-trained consultants will walk you through the decision making process and help you finalize your keepsake design. Your final design choices will dictate the size, style and price of your keepsake.

They welcome and will gladly incorporate your special invitation, photos, program, favors and other items into your keepsake. Your Design Consultant will work with you to decide what type and size of keepsake will work best for your flowers and mementos, creating a beautiful layout using these items. Once your final balance has been paid, your flowers advance to our pre-design phase. Here, the production manager and operations team order the custom materials and supplies necessary to create the design and housing of your custom keepsake.
Design Process Begins with You
In the Design Studio
Once framing and interior linings are received and prepped, itís time for the artwork to take place. Your file and order are reviewed by our production manager and assigned to a specific member of our design team for final design. Any invitations or other elements are prepped, ribbon re-pressed and other accessories cleaned. Your designer then replaces and repairs any parts of your flowers that need such treatment. Loose petals are re-adhered and leaves and buds are cleaned up.

As she follows the notes and design sketches taken during the design consultation, your designer first color-enhances your flowers, matching them as closely as possible to their original coloring and camoflauging any blemishes or imperfections in the flowers. This color-enhancing seals and locks in the natural beauty of the bloom to last for years. The colors of the flowers usually deepen during preservation white flowers become creamy or more ivory during the process and colored flowers intensify in color.

Then, finally, the flowers are arranged within the flower housing portion of your keepsake, each flower being individually adhered for security. During this step, the master designers painstakingly place each flower and element where it belongs according to the design specified during your consultation. This part of our process is the most time-intensive individual step and takes several tedious hours.

Once completed, each design are sealed in an additional climate-controlled environment where they receive fhe first of several quality-control checks.
