Wava Ladd was in a different field before she made her way into the floral business. After many years of working for a big name retailer, where she was able to work alongside some of the best visual managers and merchants, she decided to retire and put her business skills, creativity, and passion for flowers towards floral design.
Wava and her talented design team at Garden Style love crafting striking bouquets for clients and friends. At the shop they hold special events, create lush arrangements, and supply exclusive pieces for the home, but working with brides on their special day is their favorite.
“We love when a bride and groom have a vision and are inspired,” Wava says. “Whether it’s from a variety ofpictures or ideas, it is fun for us to dream alongside them to create a tailor made wedding for them!”
And most would agree that flowers and foliage create an impact, no matter what setting they’re in. From the arrangements to the bouquets to the petal-lined aisle, the blooms can hold within them the wedding mood, theme, and colors.
Whether it’s with premium grade orchids, potted succulents, or opulent bouquets of garden roses and purple hydrangeas, Garden Style can take a couple’s botanical vision from dream to design to reality. Wava loves to work with all the different varieties of flowers and build relationships with clients. “When I come to work in the morning, my day always looks different because no two arrangements are ever alike.”
Inspiration is all around for Wava, which is why she is so good at what she does and is able to put together fresh florals in a way that each client will cherish. “I am inspired from being around nature and hearing from my clients. I love to just be aware of my surroundings wherever I am, as inspiration can come in the form of the way something looks, moves, or even in the shape it takes.”
Future wedded couples can visit the Garden Style shop at any time to start planning their wedding florals, but Wava recommends starting at least four to six months ahead of the big day. She also recommends visiting with a budget in mind so that their ideal flowers are in line with their style and wallet.
All flower arrangements are custom made to order and created with the freshest, most beautiful flowers available in season. So no matter where the chosen blooms will go – whether at home, in the office, or at a grand event – Garden Style clients are guaranteed to get the highest quality flowers to bring to life the beauty of the space.
