I strongly suggest having a large area for people to hang out. We rented a large house with a pool. So fun!”Hannah Sells & Geoff LyversWed on July 21, 2018Lost River Cave, Bowling GreenPhotographer: Zoe DannenmuellerHairstylist: Kimberly Spears (and helping hand throughout the day)Attire: Ivory and stone Galina tank ball gown with layered tulle skirt from David’s Bridal and white high-top Converse. Khaki Tommy Hilfiger blazer, khaki Calvin Klein slim-fit pants, navy Roundtree and Yorke leather suspenders, chestnut Crevo Camden leather boots.Makeup: Maggie Bellamy with Makeup by Maggie and the Browtique“You don’t have to have a destination elopement to elope,” Hannah says. “You can elope somewhere cool in public in the town that you live in and skip the cost of a venue and save an incredible amount of money. If you choose somewhere in nature, you don’t even need to buy decorations. If you’re worried about celebrating with or including friends and family, just have a reception after the elopement. Your wedding day and wedding planning are both as hard and as stressful as you make them be.”Kaitlan Bondurant & Robin HerringtonWed on October 20, 2018?Cliffview Lodge, Red River Gorge, Campton, KentuckyPhotographer: Mickie WintersFlowers: Bel-Air Florist, Versailles, KentuckyAttire: Dress from Madison James. Suit from Wildfang.?Hair: Lavish Looks, Sparkle BeelerKaitlan is from Cincinnati and Robin is from Louisville, so Red River Gorge was a good meeting point between the two locations. “Standing in front of the beautiful gorge with all of our friends and family was magical,” Robin says. “We had 60 guests and it was the perfect amount for us. We were able to give all of our guests personal attention, and by the end of the weekend everybody felt like one big family.“(Instagram is) great for initial inspiration, but we started to second-guess our planning decisions after seeing a gorgeous escort card table or fun food station. Trust your instincts and believe in your vision. And get a wedding planner. For real. Jeannie Smith, our planner and coordinator (AshBy Wedding & Event Planning), knew what vendors would be appropriate for what we wanted and, more importantly, knew the vendors that would be willing to trek out into the wilds of Kentucky.”This originally appeared in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Louisville Bride.

WKU to close down the WKU Floral Shop next week - College Heights HeraldTuesday, May 01, 2018
According to the statement released by Bob Skipper, director of media relations, "a group of floral business owners" from Bowling Green and Simpson County approached WKU last September, "claiming that the WKU Floral Shop represented unfair market competition because it is partially subsidized by a public university."In a public Facebook post by Christal Smith McKinney, according to her LinkedIn profile information she is an alumna of WKU, said the charge to close the Floral Shop was led by Warren County Judge-Executive Michael Buchanon. Buchanon, according to business registration information filed with the Kentucky secretary of state's office, is the president of Deemer Floral Co., a local floral shop on Lehman Avenue in Bowling Green. Buchanon publicly commented on McKinney's status and said all the privately owned florists in the region have opposed WKU and "their publicly funded Flower Shop competing against privately funded taxpaying businesses." He said this feud has been ongoing and dates back to former President Gary Ransdell who, he said, often dismissed the objections of local flower shop owners. "WKU’s Flower Shop has had th... http://wkuherald.com/news/wku-to-close-down-the-wku-floral-shop-next-week/article_bdd2cfe2-4cb3-11e8-aff6-9f549d85f2c2.html
Brownsville florist has deep roots - Bowling Green Daily NewsTuesday, September 26, 2017
I like to have a job,” he said.At the time, Madison said he was mainly employed as a “gofer” but learned the basics of floral arrangement.For 17 years, he worked at Holley Performance Products in Bowling Green but decided to change jobs when his daughter Autumn was born in 1981.“My wife wanted to be a stay-at-home mom,” he said. “At first I actually mowed yards for extra money but then one day, I guess I had a brainstorm and thought, ‘Well I used to do flowers. I can still do that.’ ”Despite initial fears that he wouldn’t be able to compete with the three existing flower shops in Brownsville, within two years Madison’s business grew too big for his porch to sustain, requiring him to move to a larger home in Brownsville where he ran the shop out of a two-car garage.Moody died in 1990 and, a few years later, Madison bought her business and renamed his store Madison’s and Marguerite’s Flowers in her honor.Trevor Madison, Anthony’s son, has traveled far and wide with the Peace Corps and has done farm work on homesteads in North Carolina and California but sometimes finds himself back in his hometown.Typically, when he’s back in Brownsville, he works at his father’s store.“I really am not rooted anywhere and I consistently find myself back in my hometown with my family,” he said.Trevor, now 32, said he’s been working at Madison’s and Marguerite’s off and on since he was 18.“I just grew up around it, and it became second nature to me when I started at it,” he said.Growing up, Trevor would often go on flower deliveries and help out at the store, he said.Tasked with building a mixed flower bouquet Wednesday, Trevor started with a rose in the center and expanded outward from there, scattering other flowers – such as carnations, goldrenrod and purple and yellow daisies – around the rose that stayed in the middle of the display.“For me, the arrangement sort of makes itself,” he said. “The less I think about it, the better it’ll turn out.”Anthony, after filling a separate vase with greenery, arranged a dozen ro... http://www.bgdailynews.com/news/brownsville-florist-has-deep-roots/article_ecec9632-b146-593f-8c92-b416818b60f0.html

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.
