the tangled grapevine

We've got another vendor spotlight for our Pottery Barn/ Parsimony Vintage event, Night at the Registry! We sat down with the owner of The Tangled Grapevine for some insight into her process and her company.

Hi! My name is Stacey Rackliffe from the Tangled Grapevine and I am a special occasion florist for the central New England area. I offer my clients something truly unique and special. I get completely involved in every couples' vision of what their special day will feel like through flowers. When possible we like to include the unexpected into our pieces and use our homegrown flowers, herbs and fruit when seasonally.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get my inspiration from everything around me such as nature, books, Internet and flea markets.  I also take in a lot when I am meeting with the couple.  I get a feel for who they are and what they like.  I will take time to feel what their vision is and also add my own personality into it. By the event itself, the couple is left with something truly beautiful and unique that could never be replicated.

What's the newest trend in wedding flowers that you are loving right now?

The newest trend that I am LOVING is the natural undone look. I feel like every single flower or pod or branch in a piece has its own beauty and I love letting them tell me how they should fit in to the piece. It's just so inspiring and I love that someone could look at the piece a couple times and perhaps find something new every time!

What advice do you have for couple's that want to bring in their season's feel?

If a couple wants to incorporate the season into their look, my advice is to close their eyes and envision what the season means to them personally and to not be afraid of what others might think. Put your whole self into your wedding day and your guests will truly feel it.
