Episode 436 SARAH WINWARD: A Master Floral Designer’s Process and from Creativity Blooms Beauty
Andy is so excited to bring on today’s guest, Sarah Winward! Sarah is based out of Salt Lake City and is a destination wedding florist who creates flower arrangements that are inspired by the changing of seasons in nature. Believing that flowers should feel natural in the environment in which they are going to be viewed, still, she also finds many of her materials in the immediate area where the event will be held. Sarah primarily does flowers for events but also works on installations for private and commercial clients. She also offers various workshops and is a master of her craft!
Sarah dives into various topics such as what her childhood was like and what her biggest hobbies were as a child, how an interest in weddings and events came about for her, what the process frequently looks like between her and her clients, what her biggest challenge often is and how she overcomes it, how she has managed to become so popular on social media, what her morning routine and evening routine look like, her love for nature, and so much more!
Andy really appreciates Sarah’s time and had a great time interviewing her. He hopes that you enjoy listening to it and also encourages you to check out her online courses available for purchase from If I Made. He would love it if you were to share this episode with a few people you know who might also enjoy it and would also appreciate it if you were to subscribe to the podcast if you aren’t already so that you never miss a new episode!
