Arrangements Floral Studio
At the Grand Ol’ Barn, we want to make wedding planning and your wedding day as enjoyable and easy as possible. That's why it’s important to us, as full service venue, to offer in-house catering, on-site professional and certified wedding planners, as your coordinators, to enhance your wedding adventure. On-site rentals, such as: décor, table numbers, arches and other rental pieces, which are included on your wedding day, in addition to upscale furniture, which you can easily upgrade through the venue itself. Additionally, the Grand Ol' Barn has an on-site florist: Arrangements Floral Studio!
Arrangements Floral Studio was created by Shauna Altes, the owner of Grand Ol’ Barn. Shauna and her sister, Ashley Lampe have been creating wedding and event florals for over 8 years. Currently, Ashley heads up Arrangements Floral Studio, as the lead florist!
This is one of the many reasons why we take florals very seriously at the Grand Ol’ Barn. We understand that wedding florals, just like your wedding music, menu and other wedding day details, are special, personalized to you, your love story and wedding day.
Wedding Flowers can take on many meanings and are more than simply a "pretty" aesthetic, in fact many times wedding flowers:
- Remind you of your first date, first relationship milestone, +/or other significant events.
- Allow you to incorporate special meanings into your wedding day, as all flowers represent a feeling, emotion +/or virtue.
- Can represent those who are no longer with you, +/or a special time in your life.
- Allow you to create an ambiance of celebration.
- Are intrinsic in capturing the mood, theme and overall look for your wedding.
Wedding rates are on the rise, in fact, weddings are currently costing 10-25% MORE than they did a year ago. Why? Gas prices and inflation for one thing, high demand also creates a rise in wedding rates. 2022 is a record year for weddings in the United States, with a staggering 2.5 million weddings! The United States hasn’t seen this amount of weddings, since 1984. This means, instead of booking wedding pros 10-12 months out, planners are now encouraging couples to book wedding vendors 14-18+ months out.
