Understated Floral Magnificence
A behind the scenes vendor spotlight from our recent feature on Once Wed.
-If you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Katherine McCloskey, owner of Pollen Nation Floral Studio, one of the first attributes of her character you will notice is how relaxed, and confidently humble she is about her creative abilities. You will feel at ease, and quickly realize that your visionary requests are in extremely capable hands.
When I approached Katherine about the vision for luxurious elegance, amidst intimacy and antiquity, we barely had a fifteen minute conversation about the floral possibilities, and at that, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that she would far exceed my expectations. She had but one request, a great passion of her craft, a wish to create on site. That was not hard to agree to, as I was beyond excited to see it happen before my eyes.
Day of the shoot, Katherine arrived with buckets of lush luxurious floral, along with the foraged touches necessary for a countryside manor house. The ease at which she created the grand table piece, was filled with touches of her expertise. And when I saw the oversized magnificent bouquet, a signature of her work in the wedding world, it took my breath away. When you see the image, perhaps the most perfect lace and floral pairing I have ever seen, it will take yours away too.
