As a nod to this unique experience, Lauren from State of Nature Floral Studio created this collaboration concept as an opportunity to work together with other like-minded individuals in the wedding industry and celebrate these special moments that we get to share with others.

It is inspired by ancient religious symbolism and contemporary fine art principles.
