Martha Stewart Weddings

I’m very pleased to announce that Sullivan Owen was named one of Martha Stewart Weddings Top 62 Floral Designers in their Spring issue, out now. It’s always exciting to be acknowledged for your hard work and creativity.
I’m very grateful for our clients, current and past who trusted me and my team to do our own creative, original work for your events and so I say thank you to all of you! 

Flower Magazine

I’m very excited to share my feature in Flower Magazine for their regular “Flower Show” story. With Spring as my inspiration, this was one of the most fun shoots I’ve worked on. It didn’t hurt that I got to work with my friend Alison Conklin in my studio with our friend Amanda from Love Me Do shooting some behind the scenes video. Muppet the studio cat supervised of course.

When you’re given the option to do anything you want, it’s almost overwhelming to decide so I used these designs as opportunity to play with shape, color and vessels that I had been hoping to try or that I hope to do this coming year for clients. I hope you enjoy them!

Martha Stewart Weddings

I’m very happy to share my feature in the Summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. Working on this shoot at the end of last summer was a total dream come true and the team I worked with was amazing and made me feel so comfortable. Martha herself even popped into the studio when I was prepping the day before the shoot and complimented the trough design in progress. I had this whole plan for playing it cool if I ran into her but of course that fell out the window when I was face to face with her! The issue is out now through the end of summer, the images below are from the iPad edition.

Snippet & Ink

Snippet & Ink recently featured Brian & Celeste’s gorgeous Bartram’s Garden wedding from last summer. Photos by our pals Love Me Do. See the full feature here…


Philadelphia Wedding

The new Fall/Winter issue of Philadelphia Wedding was just published and I’m thrilled to share our two gorgeous features. The first is our vibrant and fun color themed wedding at terrain.

This wedding was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes

The second story features a wild and textural non-floral centerpiece. Normally I don’t get excited about a non floral centerpiece because they sometimes feel too DIY to me. They are not what you would go to a professional designer for in my opinion but I think I’ve found my way. My take on the traditional “dish garden” is a nice update, it still feels like a piece that was designed and is just as much in my style and aesthetic as a bowl bursting with flowers. I could see this being stunning in the fall or winter and all the plants were able to be planted after the fact.
The new issue is available now!

Green Wedding Shoes

This pink and gold styled shoot by our friends Confetti & Co and Alison Conklin was recently featured on Green Wedding Shoes. We provided the hot pink florals for this fun shoot. See more of the shoot here…
