Flower Friday: Inside Studio Stems

UBB studio stems 1Studio Stems just moved into a new location in Lehi, their new studio vibe can be described in one old school word …. cool! So for today’s flower Friday we wanted to take you inside their new studio and bring Audrey {the owner} on to talk about all the changes going on at Studio Stems.

You could say I am a veteran in the wedding industry, we have been around for nearly five-teen years and our primary focus has always been wedding floral {something unusual way back that many years ago}. I have always endeavored to be a mover in style and trends in the industry, constantly looking for creative rejuvenation, education, and inspiration. This has allowed my business to be graced by continued success. The business has generated wedding floral out of various locations over the years and they have all served their purpose! Recently I found that we needed some changes to continue being the creative artists that we are and that I wanted some changes in the experience that my clients had in consulting and working with us, so we decided to move!

Honestly I looked for a somewhere that fit our space needs, could be inspiring to us and to our clients, but I also looked for something close to home because first and foremost I am a mom! Our studio is located in the old downtown district of Lehi and you will mostly find me or my right hand gal Neena working here, its a small business with a personal focus on our clients.

One of the most important areas to me is where our clients meet with us, I want them to experience what we are about, feel our vibe, and I want them more importantly to be comfortable and inspired! So when you first come in you will be greeted by our office and consult area. We want you brides to come in and sit down with us, be inspired and find out what a wedding event florist does.

Most days you will find a cooler full of wedding floral and buckets full of blooms and foliage. You can also just pop by for a bloom or two for someone if needed. I really wanted to make sure our studio created a new impression on anyone who walked in the door, that a flower shop is not always a shop, that sometimes its more about design and custom work. It is all about getting back to the root of the word studio! I wanted the space clean and not cluttered so that inspiration could be felt clearly by us and our customers.

I also found that a lot of my clients really wanted to see our inventory options for vessels and other wedding decor needs so we brought in some open shelves to share a taste of what we have available. These shelves alone have provided endless inspiration to our clients who have already come in!

Being in a retail location created some opportunity to provide some gift options to locals but I was cautious in doing this and careful in what we selected as to maintain the integrity of who we are. I wanted to support some local artists so I brought in local hoodie designer Hoodie Love, Pribing Jewelry, Ann B Designs, and a local rock & gem collector Meera Andersen. You can also find Volupsa, Caldrea, KHall, Himalayan Trading Post, Paper Bandit Press, and 1 Canoe 2 at our studio. We have a collection of air plants, custom planted terrariums, and home decor available, as well as our give back Indi shirts that we sell to raise funds to help us be able to donate funeral floral to families who have lost children too soon.
