Gainesville woman creates picture-perfect floral designs for weddings and photo shoots - Gainesville TimesTuesday, October 11, 2016
Early sets her mind on a task, she brings her own personal sense of creativity and style to make it as beautiful and unique as possible.Recently, she styled a not-yet-released marketing video for Abernathy and Cochran Real Estate Group. For the video, she styled a table for a fall dinner party. She said she hand-dyed the table runner, did an autumn-colored floral arrangement and styled the table with fruit, candles, plates and flatware.“We chose her because of her artistic style and her creativity and her love of all things home,” said Brad Abernathy, a partner at Abernathy and Cochran Real Estate Group in Gainesville.Abernathy said he met Early years ago when their children attended the same school.“We crossed paths a few different times in real estate-related business and we couldn’t think of anybody better to do the marketing video about real estate homes and decor than Ginny,” he said.But Early has not forgotten her roots. She said she has dreams of styling weddings in Europe or around United States. But for now most of her clients’ weddings are in North Georgia or Atlanta.Therefore, Early focuses on her style, which includes a lot of natural and organic looks with garden-gathered and art-inspired arrangements.“I really look at whether it’s an arrangement or bouquet or whatever I’m making,” she said. “Each piece is treated like a piece of art.”She said she lets the flowers “sing,” arranging them to best enhance their beauty. And she doesn’t follow strict recipes, calling for specific numbers of flowers.Early tries to create floral designs representative of her client, which is important to her. When she works with a bride, Early wants to hear all about the spouses-to-be.“I like to sit down and have a chat and hear all about them and their fiance,” she said. “Because no matter what style of flowers we do, I want it to be a reflection of the people getting married. I want everything to point toward the love that they have for each other, for that to be the focus.”She also wants to know the bride’s personal style to highlight her beauty.Early’s ability to create a design for a woman’s personal style comes in handy when she isn’t catering to a bride. During her downtime, she offers wardrobe makeovers, which involve discarding out-of-date, ill-fitting or unflattering clothing. Then she transforms into a personal shopper for her client. She said she puts together new looks to make her clients feel their best.All that is at the heart of her business, whether it’s flowers or a person.“Whether I’m styling or doing flowers or other aspects of the game, doing a wardrobe makeover, that moment when it all comes together ... those moments where you can see in their eyes that the client feels like they’re connected with the way they were made to be is pretty amazing,” she said. “It kind of makes me cry. When someone finally feels like the best version of themselves, it’s an honor to be a part of that.”For more information, visit www.enemiesoftheaverage.com. ... http://www.gainesvilletimes.com/section/199/article/119507/
