Beautiful Bridal Bouquets

My name is Diane Wakeman.  I am a Specialty Florist with a passion for designing wedding flowers (and more)! I began my Floral Career in 1994 and became a Certified Floral Designer in 1999.  I recognize how important flowers are for your special day!  Next to the bride and groom, flowers become a focal point for your wedding by accenting a bride's chosen colors and making the colors totally "pop out" and therefore, making everything radiantly beautiful for an absolutely stunning wedding day! 

Flowers also become a focal point for prom's and dances.  No matter what the special occasion is, I will customize silk  flowers to your unique style and chosen colors. 

 (Disclosure:  My designs are done in silk flowers (not fresh) for these reasons:  1) There are so many more color choices available in silk than fresh (however, in today's world, there are so many hughes, tints, shades and tones in the new colors of  the dresses, that it sometimes makes it difficult to match the colors exactly; but I always try to match them as close as possible).  2) Silk flowers become such a wonderful keepsake to treasure for your special day that will last for years and years to come, where as fresh flowers die and don't last.  3) Additionally, silk flowers are not affected by extreme heat or extreme cold temperatures, as fresh flowers can be.  4) Silk flowers can be done ahead of time, and are therefore, not rushed last minute, plus so many more reasons).  So, if silk flowers work for you, I would love to design your flowers for your most treasured day, as well as, for any other of your silk floral needs!

I also recognize how important that special lost loved one is and how keeping their grave looking nice is to you.  Add​itionally, I specialize in customizing the following (and more) grave decorations in your choice of colors:

Silk Grave saddles

Silk Hanging baskets

Silk Cemetery Cones

Fresh Evergreen Grave Pillows (Regular and Fluffy)

Fresh Evergreen Grave Blankets (Regular and Fluffy)

Fresh Wreaths on a 36" Easel

Decorated Wooden Crosses 

Also custom pieces

Be sure to book your wedding, prom, or special event and reserve your date, as they fill up quickly! Also, be sure to order your grave decorations early, as well.  Call 815-545-7516 to make an appointment for your one on one consultation today, and/or to place an order for a centerpiece, vase, decorative lantern, wreath, wall decorations, grave decorations, and so much more! Please bring any color swatches that you have of your dress, your attendant's dresses, tuxes, etc, as well as, any pictures of bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, altar flowers, centerpieces, grave decorations, etc., that you like, or are looking for.   I will customize everything to match the pictures as close as possible.  I look forward to meeting you and designing your flowers for you!  Have a wonderful day!
