Gather Design Company

Washington Floral Design

We approach wedding flowers as an artful medium to tell your love story. Your flowers will be beautiful, seasonal, and fresh, but more importantly, they will mirror the graceful way your gown flows, or the organic movement of the long grass surrounding your ceremony site. Our designs are at once ethereal and timeless, organic and architectural, and are always created with the intention of telling your story. We do this by getting to know you, learning what makes you laugh, what makes your eyes light up, what reflects each of you, and the pair of you together. Your floral story is played out by bringing together romantic, full blooms, wandering vines, heavily fruited branches, and fluttering bits, arranged in our ever-growing collection of vases, urns, and compotes. Our event design services help you personalize your entire wedding experience from the stationery that your guests receive as their introduction to your wedding, to advising on attire, to sourcing linens and rentals, and of course integrating thoughtfully designed flowers to create a cohesive and individualised day that speaks to your unique story.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… walking around our neighbourhood with my husband and baby son, then cozying up to cook a delicious meal.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… my husband and I spent two months traveling through Italy and Greece a few years ago. The whole trip was amazing, but my favourite part was ending up in a tiny seaside town in Greece where we didn’t mean to be, but loving it so much that we ended up staying for 10 nights! We ate the most delicious locally caught fish, drank wonderful local wine, and spent our days hiking and lounging at the most incredible beach.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… oh man, this is impossible to answer! My top three right now are Myanmar, Croatia, and New Zealand! I love taking cooking classes when I travel, which is partly why Myanmar is at the top of my list! I adore Burmese food.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… learning what makes my couples’ eyes light up, and then figuring out how to integrate that spark into my floral designs. Flowers should be more than just pretty; they should represent the couple and their love story!

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… I’ve always thought about going to culinary school!

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… figure out what parts of you, individually and together, you want represented at your wedding. And then carefully consider which elements best showcase those parts of you. If you love to travel, consider booking a venue abroad. If you love farm-to-table fare, work with a local chef to bring the best seasonal food to your guests’ plates. If your grandmother had a wall of jasmine at her house, incorporate that into your arrangements. Stay true to who you are and you are bound to have a lovely, meaningful wedding.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… Seattle is always so green and there is always something blooming here, even in the darkest part of winter! And I think the summers here are as good as anywhere in the world!

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… I’d have to split my time between rural Marin County, California and Southern Italy.
