Thank you for your interest in working with me to save your memories!
Please read through these most frequently asked questions on my process.
I’d love to preserve my wedding bouquet with you, how soon after an event do you need the flowers?
The best way to ensure that your flowers are taken care of is to make plan for delivering them to me ahead of time.
If your wedding has recently taken place and your flowers are still in good condition, it is always worth emailing me to see if we can arrange a last minute order. But if you are reading this before your wedding, please order ASAP to secure your spot.

How long will my preserved bouquet last?
What's your technique?
As long as you treat the framed bouquet carefully, there should be no reason why it won't last a lifetime!
UV-filtering art glass in my frames protects your flowers from harsh light that usually causes fading. However, because I don't color treat flowers or add any chemicals to them it's possible that over the years, you may see some slight fading or color change. Flowers should remain intact. I recommend that you hang the frame out of the direct sunlight and avoid moisture.
What will the flowers look like after preservation?
Do you offer 3D preservation in resin?
Absolutely! I have many years of experience in resin casting and really love working on custom orders! You can refer to this listing for art décor pieces -
3D preservation allows you to save the flowers in their natural shape and color, and also works for flowers that were already previously dried!
How long will my order take?
How can I ship the flowers to you? If I'm local to Boston, can I drop them off at your studio?
1. Find a box the right size to fit your bouquet.
2. Screw up newspaper pages and stuff them around the edges of the box to hold it securely in place. Do not use any bubble wrap or it might make your flowers sweat.
3. Trim stems at the bottom with sharp knife or scissors (about an inch) then wet some kitchen paper towels and fold them up around the BOTTOM of the stems.
4. Put a sandwich bag around the paper towel and the bottom of the stems. This will stop the water from leaking all over the rest of your box.
Use an elastic band to secure the plastic bag in place.
5. Put the bouquet carefully in the middle of the box. It should fit quite snugly and not move around too much. Put some more newspaper if your bouquet is too wobbly.
6. Pack some more newspaper very loosely around the sides and top of the bouquet.
7. Print out your email confirmation with the order number and include in the box.
8. Seal the box closed with tape and write "Fragile Fresh Flowers".
9. Take the flowers to the Post office and ship to me Priority or better, overnight express.
