SB Art: Brianna Belton, Floral Designer
What started as a creative hobby in her garage has become a dream job for Brianna Belton, the creative behind Brianna Belton Design. With years of experience in designing, building and planning, the Brianna Belton Design team can bring your vision to life.
Growing up, Belton’s mother was a creative and her father always had and still does have a successful business. She inherited both the creative and the entrepreneur genes from her parents.
“It’s a God-given talent,” said Belton. “And it wasn’t until years after doing this for a hobby that I even realized it could be a career. When I finally put my trust in God and myself, the business came.”
From home décor to wedding florals, Belton has her hand in lots of projects and her process is pretty simple.
When a new bride comes to her, the first step is letting the client know what all Brianna Belton Design (BBD) can offer. She offers wedding planning services along with flowers which can be a huge help for a client’s wedding planning process — having a florist who also plans entire weddings simplifies things. The next step is for Belton to pull together a mood board and style plan to show the client ideas and get a feel for the vision for the wedding. Finally, she and her client sorts through all of their ideas and brings everything together in preparation for the big day.
The BBD style can be described as natural and organic with a European touch. Belton loves French styles that are light, airy and wispy. She enjoys traveling with her family and is often inspired by the places they visit. Her recent trip to Italy, for example, has given her several ideas and sources to draw from.
Her advice to brides planning their dream weddings — “Trust the creative process. Find a designer and planner that you trust. When you let the creative, be creative, that’s when the magic happens.”
