Vendor Spotlight: Passiflora Designs, Wedding Florist

Paige Benjamin has been in the floral industry for 15 years and you can tell by her work. She tells us she started Passiflora Designs 11 years ago, choosing to work with flowers as an art medium while studying sculpture in college. She appreciates flowers colors, texture and impermanence. Paige says she loves weddings “because every wedding is different and has its own character. I love the process of working hand in hand with a bride and groom to make their day more than they ever anticipated.”

As for inspirations, Paige says the Alameda Flea Market is inspirational: “I love going to soak in all the amazing d├ęcor and art. I am mostly inspired at the flower market, as the flowers cannot help but inspire!”

Should you book her for your wedding, Passiflora seamlessly blends contemporary style with traditional elegance. Working with Passiflora and Paige is not just placing an order, but they will walk you through the process. Their philosophy is that the process is just as important as the end product and they have the reputation to boot.
