Today seems like the best day ever to announce our winter wreath class at the fabulous @coladashop!! Come cozy up with Cuban cocktails while we design with all these *beautiful* dried elements we’ve been collecting. Tickets in our bio! Get them quick because space is limited. 🌿💃😍
Thinking back on these beauties shot by @rachelehphotos at @blue_valley_vineyard a few weeks ago. Last night wrapped the last of Rocking Birds fall weddings and it was *epic.* now for some well deserved rest before holiday season gets going!!
We’re gearing up for a HUGE wedding weekend here at RB. @malloryess and I processed a s***load of flowers this afternoon and we are so ridiculously stoked to get designing tomorrow!!! Oooo and @brigidcowdreydesign is coming so everything will be alright 🤗

In the flower studio today we’re jamming out to ABBA and finishing up our four beautiful weddings. @malloryess and I have started talking to the flowers which seems to make a big difference. Hola guapas!! Pretty little lady birds 🤩💃🌿
I’m all about strong opinions but sometimes the most amazing things come from total artistic freedom. The color directive from my client on this bouquet was “fall.” I didn’t want to create a typical orange, yellow and red bouquet so we spliced in some bridging tones, added in a bunch of texture and went with it. Trust your gut lady bird💃🌿

As some of you know, my sistah @malloryess is here helping me with Rocking Bird this fall. Since high school, Mal and I have been pretty far flung. I moved to Hong Kong when she was 13, we both went to college out of state, and she’s lived in Mexico for the past few years. Long story short, we don’t get to see each other very often. We realized the other day that this stretch is the longest we’ve been together since we were kids and it is SOUL reviving. Everything is easier when you have your best buddy by your side.
Scenes from the flower studio. Today we breathe, relax, get our bearings and respond to a whole bunch of email. But first tacos with @mysnapbash !!!!!
Today my sister @malloryess and I jammed out to the @indigogirlsmusic while designing bridal bouquets for our first lesbian wedding. We grew up listening to these songs and to be honest, I basically just cried the whole time I was crafting this pretty little bird. I am so honored, moved and grateful to be part of a beautifully empowered day tomorrow. Love wins, every time. And the less I seek my source for some definitive, the closer I am to fine.
