A Look at Holly Yee Floral Architecture, LLC

Purpose: To create Beautiful, Joyful, and Memorable Settings through Thoughtful Floral Architecture

Holly Yee Floral Architecture transforms weddings, corporate events, and other grand celebrations through personalized, handcrafted florals and custom botanical installations. Our clients care deeply about the ambiance and the impact of their event, and, especially, desire a beautiful, joyful, and exceptional event experience.

 

The conceptual design of your florals is just as important as the actual arrangements themselves, and it's with this philosophy that we embody and practice the principles of architecture.

 

Along your floral journey you will receive conceptual drawings and other visuals of both key event areas and focal arrangements, which allows us to bring your vision to life prior to your event.

 

We love flowers. But we are passionate about design.

 

WE HELP YOU DEFINE AND VISUALIZE YOUR FLORAL AESTHETIC THROUGH OUR DETAILED DRAWINGS

After dreaming and designing we sketched out our vision for Lorna and Ryan's ceremony.

Lorna and Ryan say their vows framed by a beautiful backdrop. Just as we imagined!

HOLLY: Owner, Lead Floral Architect, & Artist

I have a thing for flowers. Using flowers, foliage, or any organic plant material as a medium for design is so much fun! There always seems to be a new variety to discover, whether at the wholesaler or at a local flower farm, and I am always amazed by how spectacular nature is. Have you ever seen a passion vine flower?!?! It doesn't even look like it belongs to this world! Or what about scabiosa flowers? They look like little frosted cupcakes with white sprinkles. How cute is that?!?! Or Clooney ranunculus? They seem to have an endless quantity of the softest tissue paper-like petals. Just gorgeous! And I cannot forget one of my very favorites, explosion grass. Its texture and its shape reminds me of my favorite 4th of July firework - those enormous shimmery fireworks that grow bigger from the middle out and always, always take my breath away.

 

I get energized by imagining the impossible. While I am inspired by botanical elements, I am dreamer by nature and I get much of my energy from brainstorming new ideas. Conceptual design really ignites my fire. There are so many possibilities! And there are no limits to the imagination, which I find completely invigorating. I love the challenge of bringing a new idea into existence. Giving tangibility to the abstract. Creating something out of nothing.

You know a little about me, now I want to know about you!

We are passionate about creating a great community! We try to support other amazing businesses as much as possible, whether that is sourcing fabulous flowers from local flower farmers or finding local crafters whose unusual textiles we can incorporate into our floral work. Not only does this strengthen the fabric of our community, but we feel it deepens the aesthetic and elevates the quality of our designs.

 

We continually make a conscious effort to learn about all the wonderful people in the event industry, so we can guide our clients to other vendors that would be a best fit for them and their event objectives. We are happy to give our vendor recommendations!

ENVIRONMENT PRINCIPLES: As an organization we are committed to operating as earth-friendly as possible to lessen the impact of our carbon footprint. The global economy has transformed the world and we are incredibly fortunate to be able to get so many amazing flowers from all over the world. Whenever possible, however, we buy flowers from local flower farms. Buying local supports small businesses, but also reduces the amount of carbon emissions directly tied to the flowers themselves.

 

We compost all of the floral organic waste generated from design work, we recycle all of the bulk flower packaging, we do not use petroleum-based floral foam that is widely prevalent in the industry. We also try to re-use as much of the mechanics as possible, things such as vases, pins, and wire. The less we can put in the landfill the better it is for everyone and everything.
