ABOUT THE ROGUE PETAL CO.
Planning our wedding proved to be incredibly exciting, but also super overwhelming. . . Yep, I’m talking about the cost. We started with one budget, then after a little more research, had another, bigger budget and then another EVEN bigger—you get the point… It felt insane. I want to know when the ah-ha moment was in history, where someone decided, "yeahh... *looks at spreadsheet* that's labeled 'wedding'... make sure you quadrouple the cost, because... clearly... w-e-d-d-i-n-g"??
Even though it poked holes in the wedding planning fun, we were still getting married! So we had to figure it out, make it work, make it cute (that last part was about 94% me and 6% my husband-to-be).
(wayy before we were even planning. . . or before I was engaged. . . or was in a serious relationship. . . that’s super normal I’ve heard. . . it’s fine).
I’ve been a crafter and artist for most of my existence. So when I discovered the wonderful world that is faux flowers at my local and craft stores, I was in heaven! I had always imagined silk flowers to be plastic looking, overly-saturated with unnatural color pigments, and to just look blatantly fake. However, now thanks to improvements in faux floral design (whomever you lovely gods and goddesses are, I appreciate you) I was able to track down stems and greenery that look incredibly real! They look so legitimate you have to squint and blink a few times, then put feelers on them just to make sure they’re still fake!
Our wedding was featured on Baltimore Weddings for December 2019 Local Love--you can find the feature here!
Immediately after, I created The Rogue Petal Co. to extend my services to guys and gals alike who want to fulfill their floral Pinterest desires without breaking the bank. The RPC portfolio is full of wedding pieces, but we have the capabilities to realize faux floral needs beyond weddings, including props for shoots, home staging, and home decor.
