Hi, my name is Sarah Merrill, and I am the owner of Suite Blooms & Designs, based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. It is an exciting privilege to be on the Wyoming Weddings blog team! For my first blog, I would like to tell you a little about myself, and how I came to be a wedding florist.
My fascination with flowers began when I was a small child growing up in a quaint home in Casper, Wyoming. My mother cultivated daisies, moss roses and most memorably holly hocks in our yard. I examined the way the daisies branched, and the way the seeds formed on the Holly Hocks after the plants had finished blooming. Little did I know that my fascination would grow into a life long passion.
When I was in high school, I took a part time job in a flower shop, and happily scrubbed buckets and answered phones just to be in the vicinity of the gorgeous blooms. I learned how to care for the flowers, and I was always watching to learn new techniques of flower arranging. After work, I would return home inspired and smelling of roses, freesia and stock flowers.
When I came to Cheyenne and began planning my own wedding, my obsession with flowers blossomed into a business plan. I knew that I had found an outlet for my passion. A few years have passed, but my dream has been realized! In January 2010, I opened a small wedding flower & décor business called Suite Blooms & Designs. Since then I have enjoyed creating unique arrangements for simple intimate ceremonies, elaborate formal weddings, and also for many lovely couples whose big day fell somewhere in between.
I am ecstatic for an already busy wedding season and am anxious to blog about my experiences, new ceremony and reception ideas, helpful hints, and floral trends that I discover along the way.
