Tellurian produces impactful, nature driven designs for intimate events that are authentic to it's client with sustainable practices that are attentive to the earth without sacrificing beauty.
I’m Val - florist, event planner, business owner but most importantly, I’m a human who loves to connect with people and the earth. Flowers are the medium in which I express my joy. I live vicariously through my couples-in-love. It truly fills my cup! If we work together, you’ll most likely see me sniffling at your wedding. Oh, the love!
About 3 years ago I went through a divorce. It was the start of a grand journey. One that has brought me low and so so high! It was through my love for the desert and canyons that I began to find healing, which is why you’ll see a lot of that here. The rhythm, the shapes, the quiet, the colors and the peace. I can always turn to the desert for inspiration.
You’d think that I lived in the desert because of how often I am there. I currently reside in Salt Lake City, Utah in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains and travel for weddings anywhere!
In business and in weddings, a lot of waste can be created, all for one day of happiness! Tellurian strives to implement extensive sustainable practices and provides recommendations to clients to help them make choices that are low impact and eco-conscious.
Here is what Tellurian is doing to leave a positive mark on this earth:
Extensive paper and product recycling.
Using recycled product and materials made sustainably.
Supporting local artists and growers.
Sourcing organic, fair trade flowers as much as possible.
Collaborating with vendors who share our earth friendly vision.
Omitting certain practices in floral design that can harm the earth such as chemical preservatives and floral foam. Note: Floral foam NEVER biodegrades and a majority of florists use it. We do not.
Clients can choose to donate their floral arrangements after events.
Leave No Trace. We totally support outdoor weddings but we will never permanently altar a landscape or disturb plant life and living creatures for an event.
