The Ginger & Blooms Office

While planning the launch of Ginger & Blooms all the way back in March, we knew that we wanted to build up the eventual launch day somehow without giving away the fact that we were partnering under a new brand. Lauren had already booked a branding photo session with Andrea Pesce, and decided that hinting at an "office launch" would be a great way to build up excitement over the launch date without giving away our big secret! Needless to say, the "office launch" never happened because that wasn't the big secret after all (are we sneaky or what??), but today we finally get to share it with you!!! We have SO many gorgeous branding photos, office photos, and headshots that turned out to be such a huge asset to our new brand. We are so excited to share some of the images here today so you can get a peek inside our Ginger & Blooms space!! Welcome to the G&B office!!

We are beyond obsessed with that Anthropologie wallpaper! AND the "G&B"!! Anthro = major office decor win. Seriously.

Also - see those tulips?? Prior to this office shoot, Andrea shot us putting together some floral arrangements. It was quite comical because Lauren did this gorgeous, complicated, large arrangement, and Alyssa... well, she stuck to cutting stems and making tiny vase/single stem pieces. She would like to point out that she is capable of putting single stem flowers in a vase. And she's very proud of it.

Anddd now we see the real floral talent ;) Gah look at Lauren's fluffy arrangement of G&B blooms!! And those amazing rose gold chairs are from Stash Rentals!! 

SO obsessed with the gorgeous natural light in this room - and Andrea captured it so perfectly!

This frame holds a lovely brush calligraphy piece by Simply Jessica Marie - Lauren had this hanging in her home, but it was just the perfect shade of navy - we had to include it in the office!

By the way, Lauren's husband Craig was totallyyyy hanging this gallery wall for us like 15 minutes before Andrea arrived - he was such a champ.

Matching Anthro mugs, of course.

Yes, even our trash can is rose gold. #priorities.

Andrea also did some incredible styled flats for us too! This is one of our favorites, but there are SO many more that we can't wait to use in all aspects of our business!!!

This was us designing blooms before the shoot... notice the lack of blooms on Alyssa's side :) Don't worry, Lauren is teaching her well :)

Do you love it as much as we do?!?!?! Having office and branding images done for your business is such a huge benefit because they can be used in so many ways. As soon as we received our gallery from Andrea, it was like it pulled every aspect of our brand together and it made an amazing impact on our final website. Andrea Pesce is totally your girl if you're looking to get branding images! We are so thankful for her!!! We have so so so many more images, but we have to save some ;)

Meet you here next Monday for our first bridal tips post on the G&B journal!

Gingerly,

Lauren and Alyssa

Welcome to Ginger & Blooms!

SURPRISE!!! And welcome to Ginger & Blooms!! A brand new wedding planning and floral design studio founded by fellow gingers and wedding lovers, Lauren & Alyssa! Some of you may know Lauren from So Lovely Weddings & Blooms, or Alyssa from Lovely & Bubbly Events, or both of us, or even neither of us, but whether we've gotten the pleasure to know you yet or not, we are SO happy you're here! We've been keeping this HUGE secret of combining our businesses into one for what seems like forever, and we are just so excited to finally be able to share the news!!

So how exactly did this happen??

It was actually a really natural fit for both of us. After her first year in business, Alyssa had been wanting to expand and rebrand in some way, but wasn't exactly sure what the next step was. Meanwhile, Lauren had already started working on her rebrand after a business coaching session with Katelyn James. We had already worked together a bunch in the last year. After meeting at Lauren's workshop, The Floral Gathering, we started working together a ton! Styled shoots, and even Alyssa's very first wedding! Our styles fit so perfectly together, and Alyssa was completely obsessed with the So Lovely blooms :)

Randomly one night in March, Lauren texted Alyssa saying, "Ok I just sent you an email and I feel like I'm proposing to you..." Confused, Alyssa immediately checked her email and literally started crying at the computer screen. Lauren was starting a new business called Ginger & Blooms and she wanted us to partner together!! What?!?!?! 

Fast forward through a long pizza date night chatting logistics, soooo many emails and texts, and lots of happy hugging and crying, it was a done deal - Ginger & Blooms was HAPPENING!!!

We brought on the fabulous Jess Creates to design our [anthropologie inspired!!!] brand, Meg Summerfield to build our custom Squarespace site, and Andrea Pesce to take our new branding pictures and headshots. Gosh could we have asked for a better team?!? All of these ladies were beyond fabulous and we can't thank them enough for their help in bringing this new partnership and business to life!! It's more than we could have ever imagined!!

Partnering together seriously couldn't be anymore natural for us. We truly believe blooms bring wedding design to LIFE and bringing wedding design/planning together with floral design allows us to expand our creativity and build a business that will serve our brides well. Our mission is to give our G&B brides the most cohesive wedding design experience possible. We know that florals are the heart of your wedding design, and we know that by combining our skills in wedding planning/design and florals, we can develop a cohesive event tailored perfectly to our couples :) 

Thank you SO much for stopping by to visit and celebrating in our launch!! We cannot wait to see what the future holds for this new partnership and we look forward to working with all our current and new vendor friends under our new name! Be sure to continue to come back to the blog to check in! We will be posting new content here each Monday and we've already brought some of our favorite posts from our old blogs over to the new site :)

Oh and how could we forget! We have TONS of fun giveaways happening this week to celebrate this new adventure!! Be sure to follow along @gingerandblooms on instagram to get in on all the fun! Eeeek!!!! We love you guys!!!!

Gingerly Yours,

Lauren and Alyssa
