Kate Holt - My philosophy is simple… never force a flower, let it breathe and sway. Let it show itself off in a flourish of petals. It is safe to say these blooms know what they are doing by now, evolving from miniscule little specks to their present day glory. I encourage my clients to pick flowers that make them happy, colors that make them glow, and then let our style and detailing stand the test of time and trends for you. Flowers are the true medium of my art, my craft, my life’s passion and I am so lucky to find myself in position to share my love of them with others. portfolio
