As a girl with too many random interests to count, I actually dabbled in flowers for a while. I created the bouquets and boutonnieres for my own wedding, and the weddings of a few family members and friends over the years. However, I eventually met my own limitations and realized that I wasn’t cut out for it. But my love for flowers hasn’t diminished at all! So naturally, I
stalked followed Antigua Floral’s feed on Instagram…and told all my friends;)
So, let me just tell you. Creating this piece was a dream.
When Trevor (a well-known photographer in NOLA) approached me about doing a painting for his wife Sara’s birthday, I couldn’t resist! Sara is everything a modern florist should be, in my opinion. Her fresh aesthetic and technique shine through every one of her posts, and it’s evident that her new floral venture is going places fast! She hopes to open an Antigua storefront soon here in the city, and this painting was Trevor’s way of supporting her dream. *sigh*
Here’s to beautiful, bright futures for this power duo, Trevor + Sara!
