Pressed flowers have the power to transport us and make us feel connected to a time, a place, a person or an event that we thought was gone forever.
Your flowers forever.
I never thought I would be here, doing this beautiful work.
Pressing flowers of wedding bouquets was my mother's business, Lydia's Pressed Flowers. She lovingly grew flowers, worked with brides and made keepsakes for over thirty years. She wanted me to come on board but I was doing my own artwork, teaching, working-you know what I mean. The conversation went on for years. Then mom became ill and the conversation changed.
After she passed away I asked myself, 'How could I not carry on her work?' She left me a legacy and a blessing to make it my own.
So here I am. The place I didn't think I would be and loving all of it. Proudly a second-generation keeper of the flowers and a life-long artist. Now the business honors her in its name. Flora-Ly, flowers and Lydia.
Flora-Ly creates custom botanical collages with your wedding flowers. I am creating artwork that honors your love and hope for your future. You will look at it every day and smile to yourself. Remembering the day you said I do.
At Flora-Ly, the number of artworks created in a season is limited. It is so important that each and every couple I work with is given the utmost time, attention and creative energy.
Flora-Ly is a boutique studio based in New England but serves couples all across the U.S. Flora-Ly is available for travel, creating on-site.
I am Linda and I look forward to creating something timeless and beautiful for you. Just like my mom did.
What brides and Moms have to say about Flora-Ly. I'm blushing.
"This is my gift to myself. Our wedding was large and I hardly remember a thing. But my flowers are mine and I'm so happy to have them to hold onto.
"The bouquet for my wedding was absolutely stunning and I couldn't imagine just throwing it away. I was working to find someone who could preserve my flowers and I heard about the amazing work that Linda does at Flora-ly. She was not only able to press my flowers, but made three gorgeous keepsakes for me to hang out my wall and give as gifts. I will not only be able to save my flowers forever but have paired them with other things that will help me remember my amazing wedding day so well. Linda was a joy to work with, very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. She helped us make all of the important decisions to design the amazing keepsakes she made. They are stunning and I couldn't be more thrilled with how they've turned out. I would highly recommend Flora-ly to anyone looking to remember their wedding day by pressing their flowers!" -Kristen T.
