“Many brides come in with a dream wedding, and we encourage them to bring lots of photos and be as specific as possible,” says Carolyn Walker, co-owner of Bloom Brigade. “If they’re over-budget, we try to get the look they want and stay within their budget.” Bloom Brigade offers flowers grown from its own garden as well as flowers locally sourced from wholesalers in the Pittsburgh area, giving them a whole new world of fresh options. “We will grow things for brides specifically and we try to use less commonly used products,” says co-owner Suzan Krauland. This way, brides are guaranteed to have memorable and beautiful arrangements that are sure to impress their guests. One of the trends that Bloom Brigade specializes in is loose, airy arrangements. “This trend is right up our alley and we love that individual flowers can be showcased to really see each stem’s beauty,” says Walker. “We do this because we absolutely love flowers and it’s way fun!”
