Local and destination - intimate, luxury, bespoke, personal and intentional wedding florals are our speciality. We do a tiny number each season. Working with stylists, planners and brides to come up with whimsical, seasonal, garden-style and high-end floral arrangements, installations and bouquets is what we love to do. CHOF designs emerge from the desire to express a feeling. Rebellious spontaneity making way for new individuality. Classic yet untamed. Traditional yet revolutionary. Simple. Something that is meaningful for years to come. We revel in the freedom to authentically create, - not conform - loose audacious floral mixes of elegant, traditional, classic, and natural elements contrasted with bold organic attitude and refinement. The garden encounters couture.

Dates generally book between 8 - 12 months in advance. We only take a few each year. The date may be reserved any time with a deposit that will be applied to your wedding.
More than 90% of our weddings are destination events throughout the US and world. The CHOF studio is in Statesboro, Georgia - right where our friends and family started way back in 1968. It's about 90 minutes west of the Georgia Coast (north of Savannah, west of St. Simons and south of Atlanta).
Our wedding floral minimum is $25k. From searching for sentimental blooms that remind the bride of her grandmother to scouring the earth for a hard-to-find peony at end of the season and every single thing in between, flowers (just flowers) is what we love to do!
Usually, the process starts when your stylist or planner contacts us. Then, our team will put together a proposal to get started. Once a deposit is made and the date is on our calendar, an in-person, video or email consultation takes place to meet you, discuss details and get an outline.
A lot! Just about all of our clients work with a full-service wedding planner or stylist. This role is necessary to pull the details and budget together in a way that's beautiful, personal and easy for the bride and groom to make your day is stress free. These professionals are a liaison between our aesthetic and your floral vision.
You know it! And, we are so lucky to work with some of the best in the business. Your flowers, photographer, stylists, planners are essential. We worked hard to share some tips to make working with a stylist/planner easy for floral designers and brides - check out our video made in Savannah with Justin Peay Productions.
