Studio Mondine is a floral design studio based in foggy San Francisco, California. We seek to balance the lushness of English garden arrangements with the precision of Japanese ikebana in our work. We look to nature and the changing of the seasons to inform our designs. It's with feverish enthusiasm that we seek out the rarest ingredients, working directly with the finest flower farmers in the nation or cultivating these special blooms ourselves in our small cutting garden.
WEDDING FLORAL DESIGN
Our wedding clients prefer timelessness over trends. We work in naturalistic, nuanced palettes and follow nature's guide. Whether you're looking for wedding florals or consulting on wedding design, we're here to help. Let's start the conversation!
The mondine were women who cultivated rice in Northern Italy in the late nineteenth century. Mothers and daughters would leave their homes in the summer months to perform the back-breaking work of picking weeds in the transformation of these rice fields. They were known for their fierce determination, their triumphant spirit, and their song. We sought inspiration from these strong women in defining our studio's ethos.
