Philadelphia's most creative floral studio

Flower Magazine

I'm very excited to share my feature in Flower Magazine for their regular "Flower Show" story. With Spring as my inspiration, this was one of the most fun shoots I've worked on. It didn't hurt that I got to work with my friend Alison Conklin in my studio with our friend Amanda from Love Me Do shooting some behind the scenes video. Muppet the studio cat supervised of course.

When you're given the option to do anything you want, it's almost overwhelming to decide so I used these designs as opportunity to play with shape, color and vessels that I had been hoping to try or that I hope to do this coming year for clients. I hope you enjoy them!

Happy Holidays!

Well, it's certainly been a busy and bright holiday season so far. I'll be taking off a few weeks along with the rest of the team to relax and spend some time with friends and family. The studio is closed from Friday December 20th-Monday January 6th. Rather than my usual year end recap, I'll be back in January with some new blog posts and lots of great weddings. Here's to a fabulous 2014! xo, SO

If you're a bride looking for information about weddings or booking a consultation, send an email to brides (at) sullivanowen.com to get the details!
