Erin Ostreicher is the creative force behind Nectar & Root, a floral design company based in Winooski, Vermont. Erin crafts amazing floral creations, and it’s always a pleasure to work together. I took these portraits in her studio and greenhouse in Winooski.
“We provide custom floral designs and additional styling services for guidance with all of the visual aspects of your day – such as linen selections, menu presentation and additional visual vendor choices – to build a multidimensional, cohesive look and feel for your occasion. We particularly love to combine an eclectic mix of materials – new and old, masculine and feminine, in various color tones and textures – for a beautiful yet uncontrived, modern take on weddings.
On the creative side of things, we spend a great deal of time foraging through Vermont’s fields, farmers’ markets, plant nurseries, and flower farms for the best, most genuine products for our clients, oftentimes incorporating rare materials that can’t be sourced anywhere else. Having a pulse on what’s growing in Vermont makes each of our events unique from one weekend to the next, depending on what has serendipitously burst into bloom after a rain shower or a raise in temperature on any given day. In this way our flowers help capture the unique time and place of each wedding they adorn. We also incorporate materials from beyond Vermont, which allows us to fine-tune our designs with subtly and elegance. By mixing local flowers with other, specialty blooms we provide couples with extraordinary compositions that you will fall in love with at your wedding!” – Erin
One of the thing I admire about Erin’s work is how each bouquet is different and feels specific to that couple, while still being true to her style. “I find inspiration from my garden, the natural movement of flowers, fashion, and film.” – Erin
