Hi there! 

I'm Crystal, your flower preservation fairy and owner of Ever After Bouquet. Founded during the pandemic, I hope you find our story inspiring. Thank you so much for following the journey and supporting my dream.  

YOUR FLOWER FAIRY,

Founder & CEO

how it started

once upon a quarantine

The story begins in Colorado before relocating to Southern California. Leaving a beloved corporate sales desk behind with a business degree and a great resume, it was quickly discovered that planting roots in the golden state can be challenging. Your flower fairy, (that's me), found myself working gigs until the year 2020. 
While unemployed due to covid, I discovered this new hobby; dedicating my entire quarantine (over a year) to learning, experimenting, and perfecting the technique. Investing every unemployment check into this expensive venture with little certainty of the economic future, was a r isk .
When this passion began, there were hardly molds available, there was no trending Tik Tok, or tutorials on this floral science. I took notes, crafted my own molds, and forced myself to make every mistake possible before accepting a wedding bouquet. Against the odds, I took a leap of faith that the business would eventually bloom. 
Introducing this modern twist on floral preservation to Southern California weddings, and the western USA, it is with great honor and astonishment that my services were quickly recognized within the wedding industry and voted "Best Bridal Product and Service, Statewide 2022, by "California Wedding Day Magazine".
With the further introduction of items for the wedding, such as table numbers, champagne flutes, and placeholders, the studio has gained much attention, being featured, published and praised by "Style Me Pretty," "Inspired by this," "The Aisle Society",  "Southern California Bride", and more. 

Blooming



Although quarantine was a blessing, as one of the many new entrepreneurs who found their creative niche during this time, I would like to recognize and honor those who were less fortunate or lost a loved one. We are currently working on a special project in loving memory. As the studio continues to grow, expanding our team, goals, and vision, we greatly thank you for supporting this dream and following our journey!

What it's really about

What's in a flower? The way iris bloom around my birthday, that birds of paradise are my grandmother's favorite, or that my mother has grown lilac in our backyard since I can remember. Flowers are my medium, but memories are what I preserve. I have always been my grandmother's "little rosebud." Feeling this business helped me "bloom," I preserved a David Austin Evelyn rose for her as a token for her sister Evelyn who passed long ago, pulling her heartstrings. At that moment, I truly appreciated my passion- to create something sentimental, something beautiful that may be cherished forever and passed down for generations. If you have a special request beyond weddings, please don't hesitate to contact us. We can't wait to hear your floral story!
