There are so many great people from the wedding community who are participating in Get Hitched, Give Hope. So we wanted to introduce you to them by posting mini profiles! Below you’ll get a chance to meet Christopher Smith of Christopher Flowers. He does gorgeous work–and I can say this from personal experience–I hired him to do the flowers at my own wedding! So here are a few questions for Christopher:
Tell us about yourself!
Christopher Smith, Christopher Flowers – I am a floral designer for weddings, parties, and events. www.christopherflowers.biz
What do you love about your work?
I love creating pieces that reflect the personality of my client. I love working with beautiful flowers and showing them off to their best. I love it when someone walks into an event and says “Oh, it’s perfect!”
What drew you to Get Hitched, Give Hope?
Barbie Hull! As soon as she asked me if I would like to participate, I knew it would be a great thing to do. The idea is so wonderful; it’s just a good thing. Last year was awesome, and I can’t even imagine how great it will be this year!
What makes your business different?
I think some things that set me apart are my attention to detail, personalized service, and my design style. I do virtually all of the designing myself, so everything has a consistent, unified look. I make every attempt to be as communicative and pro-active as possible during the planning of a wedding, knowing that it is probably all new and likely overwhelming for the bride-to-be.
How are you participating in the event?
I will again be making bouquets for the models to carry during the show–loved that last year! My auction donation this year is custom-designed flowers for a bridal shower–worth up to $1000.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I feel so honored to be included in the event, and truly impressed by all the creativity and energy that the GHGH ladies (and gents) put into planning a fabulous evening for a great cause!
