Floral artist Mandy Majerik of Hothouse Design Studio has become one of our fast new wedding friends in the last few months. We met her through the Engaged Wedding Library (a free vendor resource for brides) and it’s free magazine Perfect Wedding Guide, where we are both wedding pro members.
We were absolutely thrilled when Mandy confided in us this summer that she was expanding her floral business to include event design — and she wanted us to collaborate on photographing some of her promotional marketing for Mandy Majerik The Creative, at www.mandymajerik.com. We know Mandy best through her wedding flowers, but her range is incredible, including all kinds of events.
We had a photo session that began at Hothouse, then worked our way over to Mandy’s beautifully designed loft downtown. We kept the plans under wraps until the SOHO Bridal Show, when Mandy unveiled the expansion through her decorated ballroom. She also graced us with gorgeous floral touches for our SOHO bridal show booth. And Mandy is always a calming influence in planning a big event, which is so great for high-strung people like me!
Brides of all budgets come to us overwhelmed by the prospect of planning a beautiful wedding event that reflects their taste, fits venue logistics, shows creativity and meets their budget. This is a HUGE job requiring expertise in tons of areas that most of us never think about, like how to incorporate pipe and drape (those beautiful fabrics that are brought in to enhance a room), uplighting (which adds depth, dimension, ambiance and color), and all the other creative details that can transform the most intimate event into one that is magazine-worthy.
Check out both of Mandy’s web sites, or better yet, and schedule a consultation for your event! Floral and event design are as diverse as bridal shops, venues and catering. Mandy, who just turned 30, is an innovator who never delivers the ordinary. She’s perfect for brides who wants something outside the box.
