Wedding Specialists: Blluum Floral & Event Design



Blluum Floral & Event Design just opened its studio and gift boutique this year. But the business, with Christine Waldrop at the helm, has been growing for some time now. Not only does Waldrop have 25 years of experience in the wedding and event industry, she’s also had the privilege of learning from and studying with leading floral designers across the country.

“I first fell in love with flowers and events from watching and working alongside my great-grandmother,” Waldrop explains. “All the women in my family passed on their creativeness to me, and that influences my business interests today.”

At Blluum, you can request floral and event design for any occasion – bridal showers, anniversaries, birthdays, corporate events, and more. Blluum’s gift boutique also offers custom gift baskets and personal gift shopping. Naturally, wedding orders – from the bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere to aisle decorations, altar arrangements, and reception centerpieces – make up a large part of the business, and Waldrop works to provide her brides with awe-inspiring floral creations that leave a lasting impression.

Waldrop shares, “I love to create and design, whether that’s a floral arrangement or every detail of an event. I find immense joy in working with my clients and exceeding their expectations. I strive to build a trusting relationship with them from the first conversation we have. I want to deliver the event of their dreams, and by talking with them and listening, really listening, I can create their vision for them.”

Personalized customer service and attention to detail are key elements to Blluum’s success. “Our focus on personal relationships with our clients and customers sets us apart,” Waldrop says. “We strive to create an experience that is unforgettable and exceptional.”
