Making your network WORK.

2017 was a great first year for Joyful Blooms! We kicked this year off doing the most amazing beach side wedding in San Clemente. Next up was another wedding in beautiful San Juan Capistrano. Fall turned to winter and we completed a couple birthday parties, a baby shower and a bridal shower. Our client events were amazing and we are ready to kill it in 2018.

The greatest part of starting this business was how much support I received from other creatives across the United States. I feel lucky to be part of two amazing groups of vendors both locally in Southern California and nationally. Not only are these amazing resources for ideas, feedback and opportunities, but they provide encouragement and comradery. These groups of photographers, florists, calligraphers, designers, planners and hair and makeup artists constantly collaborate to bring beautiful visions to life. 

I am thankful for these wonderful women and men for helping my grow my business. I am happy to share a fantastic shoot organized and designed by Urban Allure Events. This seaside tablescape oozes romance. I was privileged to provide florals and the results from Mister Pretty Pictures are phenomenal.

So here's to all my fellow creatives. For all the long nights, early mornings and coffee runs. The stress, the tears, the laughs. You're doing a great job. Your work is beautiful. Keep on growing. Keep on learning.
