2016 has been filled with countless firsts. It's been a year of finding our groove, learning a lot, meeting fantastic folks, building relationships, and plenty of moments we will forever treasure.
We've had the opportunity to work with some very special brides & grooms this past year. Forty-one weddings have been created & gone out of our little Shrewsbury shop. We've hosted several design nights & private parties in our studio that have proved to be a ton of fun (with or without wine)! Our monthly fresh flower "prescriptions" exploded & we love getting to see regular faces for pickups every other week. Our tiniest employee (little baby Mack) is on the way; due to arrive next Mother's Day! <3
It's safe to say 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting & certainly eventful year ahead. We can't wait to work with our upcoming couples! >> We are beyond thrilled to have you as a customer & also as a friend. Thank you for making this past year beyond special for us. May God bless you & your family this holiday season. See you in 2017! And don't forget: you have til Christmas at midnight to enter week #4 of our holiday giveaways on our Facebook page: enter HERE! you don't want to miss this!
From the beginning at rosemary & rust we’ve strived to be a different kind of flower shop. We've had the amazing opportunity over the past few months to meet fantastic folks that we now call friends. -- Our vision of creating a space & bringing the community in has flourished beyond our expectations. We are in awe with how God has provided this all right before our eyes. It is a joy to teach our craft to others. With that being said we are changing our retail vision. We are no longer going to be open for regular retail hours instead we are doing things a little different.
We are launching our flower subscription program. We like to call it a “prescription” because lets face it, flowers make people happy! :)
We will have price point, frequency & pickup options available, once or twice a month. -- We are striving to provide you with the freshest flower bundles around & when we can: using locally grown & harvested flowers in season.

As always, we will continue to take custom orders throughout the week; so keep us in mind for those special occasions that life brings.
We are so grateful for this community we get to be part of.
Do you remember that photo shoot from last month at Historic Shady Lane that we collaborated on with our mega talented pals?!

we have had a busy april here at r&r! - with launching the shop, kicking off our 2016 wedding season, and with introducing our ever so fun, design nights!
here are some of our favorite images from the month this venture started: [april 2016]
we've been busy gals but its been so worth it! we are super excited to see what may has in store! to sign up for a design night: click HERE & see what we have available!
On April 2nd, we did something we both never imagined could actually be a reality. We opened our design studio & shop in Shrewsbury, and we are just over the moon excited about it. (we hope this joy never wears off!) We have seen God's faithful plan & provision play out right in front of our eyes and let's just be honest: it's remarkable. The day of our grand opening truly felt like a dream come true for both of us. A whirlwind of all the emotions; our personalities, styles, and stories meshing in one particular place & space. We've spent many late nights turned early mornings hard at work & were so thrilled with the outcome. We love being in this community and around such heart warming & welcoming neighbors.
To those of you who came that day & stopped in to visit us; thank you! Your support, love, & encouragement meant & means so much to us. To the folks who couldn't make it; we hope you can stop in & visit us real soon! We'd really love to show you around! // And to our sweet husbands, Brian & Adam: thank you for always believing in us, pushing us to dream bigger, supporting us through the ups & downs, and just loving us through this process. We are so grateful to share this with you & the boys.
Here are some of our favorite spots in our space captured by our sweet friend, Alyssa. Enjoy!
This sunny space has quickly become a favorite spot for us. We love this vintage velvet couch we found & the vibe this room gives off. The days we are open, we encourage you to come & hang out here; maybe even grab some coffee from our friends across the street before you do. We promise, you won't be sorry you did.
We wanted a room in our space that was specific to what the foundation of our business is on: our weddings. This room is an eclectic mix of photos, rentals, and just pretty things. We hope this area shines a light into what we are about: [florals & design]
Our kids room is just FUN & the space is absolutely adorable. We finished this table & made it kid friendly. We want to be able to bring littles in here & teach them. Our goal for this space is to host parties & workshops where children can come & create.
We are not your average flower shop. Our workshop space is all about community. Our 12 foot farm table is a cozy meeting spot for our Thursday night: Design Nights. (Where you can come & everyone learns - creates - and leaves with a beautiful fresh floral arrangement.) Our overall theme & goal is to encourage the community to gather together & get creative. // We want people to leave our space feeling encouraged & inspired.
Thanks for taking the time to read & browse. We really appreciate you. If your local; be sure to come visit us. We are open every Friday & Saturday from 10-2. We always have a variety of single stems, bouquets, and arrangements- both fresh & dried to choose from. We do take custom orders so if you have something in particular; we'd love to chat with you about it! Feel free to stop by, email or call. Hope to see you real soon.
We are thrilled to be in the home stretch of getting our shop ready for our grand opening. (only 9 days left!) It's certainly coming together & we can't wait to show you the finished product. You can see little sneak peeks on our instagram.
We will not be your typical flower shop. Our prayer is that this space will bring folks together in a creative way that is new to our community. We thrive on connectivity; we value relationships & good company. When we are here designing our door will be open + our sign will be out; so feel free to stop on by, grab a cup of coffee, and see what we're working on!
With this goal of bringing people together, we have some exciting news! We will be hosting design nights & special events in our studio!
Our design nights & special events are where you can come & connect with friends or hopefully meet new ones! We will be creating together & you will always be leaving with something one of a kind.
We sincerely hope to see you at our grand opening & we look forward to hosting you at an upcoming event!
Check out the events tab to see what classes we currently have to offer! And be on the lookout for other new & exciting uses of our space.
This month has been one of the most exciting for both of us. We've been keeping our studio secret for what feels like forever. And earlier this month we finally got to share with all of you about our new space. We wanted to give you some sneak peeks & tell you a little about it.
We stumbled upon it as we were having coffee across the street at Village Coffee.
We decided to just call about it & see what would be available for that price range. As we walked through the very first time, we were just in awe. Everything about it was perfect! It honestly felt like a dream space. We decided immediatly that we loved it, but we knew that it might be too early for us to jump into something like this. We began brainstorming, which led to so much excitement. We called a meeting with our husbands & pitched them our idea.
They were both encouraging & told us to run with it. So here we are, under a month out from launching our new design space!
Mark your calendars & join us on April 2nd for our grand opening. DETAILS HERE In the weeks to come we will be posting about what we will be using our space for. But for now, here's a little peek into the space itself.
We are beyond exciting to be a part of this community. Thanks for stopping by & thanks for all your kindness. Our hearts are filled with joy & thanks!
We are seriously blown away & so excited to show you the images from our first bridal photo shoot. The location, models, and photographer were perfect. It's impossible to pick favorites, but we narrowed it down to this collection. Enjoy!

Today, we had the privilege to be a part of a darling bridal shoot, set at the coolest building Lancaster city, PA. We made a boutonniere, bouquet & floral crown; as well as provided a few other little details.
Here are some behind the scenes shots of the shoot. Can't wait to show you the finished product!
