What is the process for booking with Tracey Rae?
We are currently reserving dates for 2020 & 2021. The first step is sending us a message through the contact page with some general information regarding your date, ceremony & reception location, colors, etc. After this point our wedding coordinator, Rachael, will contact you with some general pricing and to setup an initial phone consultation. We will begin in person consultations for our full service weddings (booked for 2020) beginning in the fall of 2019. By waiting until we are closer to your wedding date, you can be sure that we will be focused on your wedding and all of the wonderful flowers we are planning to grow for your event.
We can however, move forward with locking in your date with a $150 initial payment at anytime! After this point, we will setup your complimentary in-person consultation for sometime from late October through February. We aim to have all of our weddings booked before the growing season really picks up for the year!
Do you have packages?
Since every event is unique, we custom tailor our weddings to fit the needs our our couples. For our weddings we can provide flowers for the entire event (Personal flowers, ceremony arrangements, centerpieces, installations, etc) as well as setup and breakdown. Our smaller weddings that require full service (flowers for the entire day along with setup/breakdown) typically start at $3000. The price is really going to depend on the quantity and size of the arrangements you need for your big day!
Do I come to the farm at any point during this process?
New for 2021, we are hosting a Spring Open House for our wedding couples! Couples will be invited to the farm to roam through the flower fields and greenhouses and will be able to pick some of our spring favorites and make an arrangement to take home! We are happy to open up our flower farm and share a little bit about the hard work and passion that goes into growing your wedding flowers!
Am I a good fit to book with Tracey Rae?
If you love our wedding portfolio, style, and the fact that we grow our own flowers for weddings and events than yes!! If you are looking for very specific flowers that we do not grow such as baby's breath, roses, and white hydrangeas than probably not. Our flowers are unique, fresh, and sustainably grown. They are not wildflowers picked on the side of the road. They have been hand selected for specific traits, colors, and their longevity in a vase and ability to hold up for event work!
