How Kendon Design Co. Got Started
I’ve valued flowers from the time was very young, which I undoubtedly inherited from my mother. I have specific memories of being in the garden with her and getting excited when I could see the Spring blooms starting to pop up. I remember getting to bring home orchids or freesia from the grocery store to put in my room, being so proud of my African Violet plant on my dresser, and knowing the names of florals at a very young age.
Fast forward, I ended up in the corporate world but was still highly creative outside of that. From photography, to graphic design, to arranging fresh florals for my home regularly. For dinner parties, family, friends, for whenever! There really is no bad time to have some fresh florals on the table.
Going on maternity leave with my second child really opened up my eyes to pursuing this passion that I wanted for so long – to be a florist. I always had this notion that I’d have to have a retail storefront, but after some research, I found that that’s not the case! I got my home design studio set up, signed up for any and all the quality education I could possibly consume, and hit the ground running. You can read a little bit more about this journey in my bio!
My overall aesthetic incorporates a little bit of garden style with a modern element and is fairly organic, flowing, airy, romantic, textural, and natural. It’s a classic look that’s largely inspired by classic Dutch paintings. I do love some silver and gold mercury glass vessels, but have also been gravitating towards natural elements. Plaster, stone, ceramic – they all offer a different but still elegant look once paired with our floral style!
When booking with Kendon Design Co., I take the time to get to know my couples, not just take your order and fulfill it. It’s very important to me to only take on a limited amount of weddings so that I’m able to carefully invest my time in getting to know who you are. I do this so that I can execute your vision to the highest standard and give you a personalized experience.
I know that planning a wedding can be incredibly overwhelming, but part of my job is to help ease some of that. No vision? No problem! I can take your initial ideas and work with you to come up with an overall look and feel that you’ll love! We’ll use florals to help tell a story to reflect who you are; individually and as a couple, and absolutely “wow” your guests! I do my absolute best to make sure the process is simple, clear, seamless and FUN! Click here to read a bit of a detailed rundown of our process.
We also have arches and a carefully curated collection of rental items to compliment our florals that are exclusively offered to our clients.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
