“Kerry is not just a super talented florist, but an artist, and she really takes the time to get to know you, your vision, and sense of style.”
I'm Kerry, and I am passionate about designing romantic, evocative florals for distinguished couples in love.
I specialize in personal, intimate weddings and elopements with a guest count of around 100 or less.
I know you are as inspired by the beauty and complexity of nature as I am, and appreciate designs in sophisticated color palettes; fanciful blooms mingling with textured and foraged elements; unstructured floral compositions of beauty - adding to the atmosphere of your already romantic day.
You have made a conscience choice in choosing your venue. From the architecture to the location and surrounding area, your venue is a reflection of your personality and style, which in turn influences my floral designs.
Kerry Patel Designs was born out of my love for flowers and my love for great design. Creativity, for me, is freeing and therapeutic, in the same way a great yoga class makes you feel fantastic. Flowers are so heartbreakingly beautiful and each it's own language. I am inspired by the different shapes, the unusual color hues and symbolism so much that I knew I wanted to make floral design a part of my life. My love for each of the elements in my floral compositions gets passed along to you through each bespoke design.
You can trust that I'll obsess
over all the beautiful details of your florals
so you don't have to.
It's my pleasure to evoke that feeling of love through your wedding florals and bring your vision to life.
In addition to sourcing exquisite florals and foliage, my home garden provides me a variety of flowers from which to chose to add to my floral designs. From spring flowers like daffodils and tulips to flowering branches of dogwood and lilac; my endless supply of peonies, beautiful garden roses and dahlia in autumn - I delight in what I can share with you that was grown and cared for by me, that adds that personal element to each of my designs.
It's about making an honest connection with you and delivering florals that are artistic, yet personal. Time spent getting to know you, your style and vision allows me to custom-tailor my florals and the proposal.
Each of my floral designs is composed with color palette, flower placement and movement in mind. From choosing the flower vessel, to the candle holders and other tablescape detail, I love curating the styling details to compliment the aestethic of your vision for your wedding of 100 guests or less. Should you wish for al a carte florals, or bridal party florals only, these florals can be picked up from my studio. Delivery can be arranged for an additional fee.

You’ve chosen to elope, a truly romantic and intimate way to start your life together! Before you set off for city hall, let me design a gorgeous, lush statement bouquet for you and a reception table centerpiece that complements the mood and feel of your special day.
From dinner parties to gatherings, to a bouquet-making workshop with your girlfriends, to birthday parties for a loved one --my goal is to provide artistic florals your guests will remember. I want my floral designs to incapsulate the warmth of your intimate dinner party and delight your guests for the evening. I kindly ask that you contact me at least two (2) weeks prior to your event so I can be sure I can accommodate your request.
Floral design workshops allow us to explore our interest in flowers with our friends or fellow flower lovers. I would love to share my passion for floral design with you and your friends through either a custom-designed private party or at one of the my public workshops I host throughout the seasons. No experience necessary. See the Workshops/Events page HERE for more information.
Pop-Up Flower Shops are a favorite way for me to interact with clients in the community. These pop-ups are where you can purchase a pre-made bouquet or choose flowers from a "bloom bar" and I can create a bouquet for you on the spot. Either way, it gives me an opportunity to meet you!

- I love jigsaw puzzles.
- I'm a proud lefty.

- I don't drink coffee.
