Sarah is a destination wedding florist that creates flower arrangements inspired by the texture and changing of seasons in nature. Her flowers evoke the feeling of freshly gathered garden flowers, with all their natural variations and inconsistencies.  

She has traveled all over the world creating flowers for couples in many different environments. Her philosophy is that flowers should feel natural in the environment that they are going to be viewed in. S

he goes to great lengths to source the perfect flowers to complete a desired look, but also finds many of her materials in the immediate area that the event will be held. The final product truly is an extension of it’s surroundings, her interpretation of nature. She finds joy in collaborating with a couple to create flowers unique for their event; taking inspiration from them, the season, and the surroundings. Each arrangement is more than just a centerpiece or a bouquet, it has layers of beauty that are meant to be experienced, not just seen.

About the City's Organizers

  • Thomas Bath

    A long time resident of the Emerald City, I was first introduced to PKN as a presenter in Seattle. I immediately fell in love with the event and the people it attracted. I served for the next couple of years as an co-conspirator for that event before moving to Utah in 2013. So excited to assist with the event here in Salt Lake City!

  • Jenni Dalley

    Influenced by contemporary architecture with clean lines and simple forms, I thrive in being a creative voice behind my studio's projects. A love of travel continues to influence my appreciation of vernacular structures and how they integrate with their surrounding environment. I begin each project I work on with the question, “What’s the Big Idea?” and search to find a solution that tells a story about context and climate.
