Weddings & Events
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding or event!
We love helping folks celebrate some of the biggest moments of their lives with gorgeous fresh flowers. At Blue Heron we are passionate about local flowers, and we love working with our own locally grown and foraged flowers to create seasonal arrangements that highlight the romantic, ephemeral, and intoxicating beauty of flowers in their peak.
We design without the use of floral foam, choosing to work with a variety of greener alternatives. Although floral foam is common in the floral industry, it is non-biodegradable and made with known carcinogens to which we choose not to expose ourselves and our clients. The way we see it, it's just as important to protect the beauty and health of the natural world as it is to capture it in our designs.
We offer wedding and event flowers from May through October. Since we are committed to using exclusively locally and responsibly grown flowers, what you get depends largely on the time of year and the whims of nature. Feel free to take a look at What's In Season to see what will likely be blooming for your date, and our Wedding Gallery for more photos of our work. We'll work with you to create a seaonal look that you'll love. While we can't always guarantee you a specific bloom on a specific day, we can guarantee beautiful, fresh, responsibly grown flowers for your big day!
How do I Reserve my Flowers?
We offer three different options for wedding and event flowers so please read below to decide which is the best fit for you. To inquire about reserving Blue Heron Farm flowers for your date please fill our Wedding & Event contact form. We will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know if we're available, and to see if we would be a good fit for you. If so, we'll gather any other info we need and send you an estimate. Once you're ready to book we ask for a 25% non-refundable deposit to reserve your flowers. And then comes the fun part!
DIY By The Bucket Flowers
DIY flowers are a great way to have beautiful, locally grown flowers with a personal touch, without breaking the bank.
How does DIY work?
DIY flowers are sold by the bucket. We fill each bucket with roughly 7-10 bunches (generally 10 stems each) of the perfect mix of focal flowers, accent flowers, and foliage to arrange with. Each bucket contains enough material to fill 5-8 wide mouth quart mason jars.
Farmer’s Choice DIY Buckets ($55 each) are a great choice for folks with a flexible color palette seeking fresh, seasonal flowers with a rustic or wildflower look. You tell us whether you prefer bright sunny colors or more muted pastels, and we will fill your buckets with the best of what’s in bloom. Your Choice DIY Buckets ($75 each) are designed for folks with a more precise or limited color palette. We tailor your buckets to your specific color palette and style. As always, specific flower varieties depend on the season and the whims of nature. All flowers are subject to tax, with an additional $5 per bucket deposit that is refunded to you when our buckets are returned to us.
DIY buckets are available for pickup on the farm by appointment. We harvest and condition your flowers in our cooler so they are fresh and ready to arrange with when you pick them up. We strive to provide you with the freshest blooms possible, and we will provide you with information and tips on keeping your flowers happy, but we cannot be responsible for their freshness after pickup, that’s up to you!
Since we spend most of our time in the field growing your flowers, we have limited time to correspond. We hope to provide all the information you need to make your DIY flower order, but if you are feel you need more help with your DIY order, we do offer consulting services over phone or email for $50/hour.
For more information check out our DIY Flower Guide.
A La Carte
A La Carte is the "best of both worlds" option; you can order a combination of personal flowers arranged by our floral designer and flowers by the bucket for you to arrange with. If you're excited to make your table arrangements but nervous about making the bridal bouquet or boutonnieres you're dreaming of, this is the perfect option for you!
How Does A La Carte work?
We work with you to come up with the right combination of seasonal, one-of-a-kind designs, and DIY buckets to suit your style and budget. You decide which personal flowers you would like to order from our floral designers and how many DIY buckets you would like to reserve.
Custom floral designs vary in price, but feel free to take a look at our A La Carte Price Guide to get a sense. DIY buckets are Farmer's Choice- bright or pastel palette for $55 each, or Your Choice- your palette for $75 each. All flowers are subject to sales tax. A La Carte orders are available for pick up on the farm by appointment. Since A La Carte orders require more communication to tailor our designs to your taste, a 45 minute consult (on the farm or over the phone) is included in the price. If you feel you need more time or help with your flowers we do offer additional consulting for $50/hour.
Full Service Florals
Let us bring your vision to life with gorgeous, custom floral designs for your wedding or event. We use the best of what the season has to offer, to create beautifully fresh, garden-inspired designs. Whether you are looking for a brilliant riot of color and texture, or an elegantly subdued palette, or anywhere in between, we work with you to create stunning, one-of-a-kind florals.
We accept a limited number of weddings each season, so please contact us early to reserve flowers for your date. We are no longer accepting Full Service weddings for the 2018 season.
Custom floral designs vary a great deal in price based on the size, complexity, and blooms used for each design. Tell us about the florals you have in mind and we would be happy to give you a price quote. Our minimum for Full Service is $2,500. Please keep in mind that all flower purchases are subject to sales tax. Full Service weddings and events require delivery and set up for an additional fee of 10%.
