Fast forward, we had the best wedding that really reflected what we love. Lots of relatives and close friends. We rented out a group campground and stayed the night. Super chill, super us. •
We got back from our honeymoon in Kauai (uhh ps After that I officially wanted to move to a tropical place) and things were wildly boring after all the excitement of planning a wedding and exploring an island. I started searching the web again for ideas on handmade goods. Then I remembered those paper flowers, I bet I could make those and sell them.
The entrepreneur in me decided that this was my next venture and I dug in. My very first flower was an origami flower called a kusudama. I got really really good at making them, like I had a box of about 500 of them by the end of July in varying sizes and paper patterns to prove it. Once I got really good at them I started to make simple round bridal bouquets. I listed my first bridal bouquet by July and wouldn't you know it, I got a message asking if I could make something similar but with custom colors only a few weeks after I listed it. A total strange trusted me, little ol' me to make a bouquet for their wedding, THEIR WEDDING!
After that very first interaction I was hooked. The rush of excitement when we discussed her bouquet, I made it, and then she freaking loved it, that right there had me. From that moment I knew that I had something I could pursue...
