Oooooo, the pretty!  Kristen Wolchik, owner and designer at Haute Floral, always brings us such lovely pieces.  She’s a whiz at finding the right look for every couple’s vision, and she loves to play around with new and creative approaches to floral!  Read a little more about Haute Floral below!

Describe your favorite type of client.

I always love a client who is excited to work with us!  It makes me giddy when a bride or other client comes in and already loves our work!  They generally already trust me to give them the best guidance and make the best decisions for colors, textures, & location of the designs.

What makes you different at what you do?

I love to connect with my clients beyond the vendor/bride relationship.  If I can have a positive impact in your life, beyond just flowers, it’s always a goal.  I have so many brides turned friends! If something is crazy going on in life (weddings are always crazy, but sometimes OTHER crazy things go on at the same time!), I love being able to help in any way possible.  Sometimes around the time of the wedding… and sometimes years afterwards.  I think clients hire me because I work to achieve their vision for floral whether it’s fun & colorful, fancy & traditional, or just plain “I want the “WOW” factor!”.

What are some of the best compliments you’ve received from your clients?

The best compliments I’ve received… the ones where a bride cries because I’ve been able to help them, sometimes with the wedding, sometimes beyond the wedding.  One of my all time favorite memories: A couple of years ago, I met a bride at a wedding show, we hit it off, & she became a client.  Every time we chatted, something nuts was going on.  She was in law school (hello, stress!), they bought a new house, house flooded, several other things – I’ll spare you the whole story.  A couple of months out from the wedding her grandmother passed away. She was traveling back and forth between Dallas & Houston A LOT as the wedding got closer. I remember calling her one day and she answered the phone something like, “Hello, Kristen, what can I help you with/what do you need?” I told her I had been thinking about her, knew she was under a lot of stress, and had arranged for a spa day of whatever she wanted at the hotel [where] they were getting married.  She burst into tears & couldn’t even speak…naturally, I ended up doing the same! I think for her some of it was just shock that somebody even cared enough about her, to see her. She was exhausted and completely drained. I cried with her because it was such a little thing, but obviously, much appreciated… and I had made a difference.
