How did you get into floral and event design? I am an accidental florist! After graduating from Belmont University in 2000 with a BA in music, I got married, and started working for a local flower wholesaler. There began my love for flowers. In 2004, when we had our first child, I began working out of our home and Vintage Florals was born. I’ve been working with brides and creating floral designs for weddings and events now for over 10 years and I am still learning and loving it!

Explain your process of working with a bride. One of the best, and my most favorite, aspects of my job is meeting with clients. My goal in a meeting is for the client to walk away with an excited sense of being cared for and understood in their vision of their wedding day. I will walk a bride through every floral detail, so that her vision for her event can come alive. I will then create a custom quote, detailing every item with individual pricing so that a client can “select all” or piece together what she needs according to her budget.

What is your favorite flower? It really depends on the season, but I love a fluffy peony or blush garden rose. Sweet, bendy ranunculus and scabiosa are some of my favorite accent flowers to work with as well.

What makes you different from other florist? There are so many talented florists in this town, so I only know what is true to me! I really try to get to the heart of what a bride wants for her wedding. I am careful to be in tune to a client as she responds to floral images that I show in the initial meeting. If her eyes light up, I know we’re onto something! Floral design is a big part of the wedding decor. It is one of the elements that truly represents the personality of the couple and helps to set the tone for the event. I’m passionate about making that happen!

What’s one thing you love to hear in consultation with a bride? ”I trust you, just do your thing!”!!!

We spoke with Sara Moggio an Event Producer for Visual Elements to tell us about their services & products.

What made you go into the business of specialty décor?

I’ve been a corporate and social planner for the past decade, however, my transition into the specialty décor business was an easy one. My love of making things pretty, connecting with clients and putting logistics together is what I enjoy the most – so why not the exciting career change? Visual Elements had been one of my favorite and go-to vendors for years and I always kept going back to them for their excellent customer service, creativity and custom products. It goes without saying, anything VE does is drool-worthy!

  What are all the different ways brides can use your products?

One of my favorite ways to utilize our products is to mix and match, especially since our inventory covers such a large spectrum for any client’s event needs. Stylized drape, custom chandeliers and swanky furniture pieces are just a few of my favorite things to play around with to take the client’s vision to the next level. These days it’s all about customization and having a voice for the bride and groom. Visual Elements does just that.

Visual Elements offers a custom, unique approach to the way we offer specialty event décor items. We take regular ideas and turn them into something extraordinary!

Some personal questions about Sara:

Mac or PC? Mac. I’m a sucker for anything shiny and new.

Tea or Coffee? Neither – Redbull! What can I say, it must give me that extra spunk for my clients.

Favorite Things To Do in Nashville? I just recently moved and I love exploring my new neighborhood. Whether it’s finding a new local drinking hole or fantastic boutique, Nashville is a great city with innovative entrepreneurs that make this city such a special place to call home.

Favorite Song Right Now? I’m mildly embarrassed to admit this, but Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. It’s super upbeat and gets me going on any Monday morning!
