Tobey Nelson Events & Design
At Tobey Nelson Events and Design, we want to bring beauty and relaxation to you and your wedding guests in an eco-conscious and respectful way. We begin by listening carefully to what you have in mind, and then work with you to create your vision in a way that works with your spending plan.
We want shopping for flowers to be relaxed and fun. We have a policy of honesty and flexibility. Our goal is to make you happy! We also believe in doing our small part in creating greater good, so all, or as much as possible, of your flowers will be sourced locally or domestically from farmers who employ sustainable agriculture practices. We never use the formaldehyde-based green floral foam in our designs. We pay our employees a living wage. We keep it super local by growing lots of our own foliage, fillers and blooms!
Our floral style is bourne out of a lifetime in horticulture. The special garden elements found in our creations reflect our total obsession with plants and flowers. Our work is meticulous and detailed and there is a treasure to be noticed in everything we make. We love to create floral wearables such as hairpieces, necklaces, belts and anything else you can imagine! We have an inventory of vases, candleholders, easels, chalkboards etc. By renting from us, you can save yourself some money, and at the risk of sounding preachy, you can keep your carbon footprint lower by not contributing to the additional manufacture of goods!
We specialize in Whidbey Island weddings, but we also serve the greater north Seattle area including and serve Everett, Mukilteo, and Woodinville. We are equally happy creating a bouquet for a destination elopement as we are making lots of centerpieces for a more elaborate affair.
You won’t regret hiring Tobey from Vases Wild for your wedding or special occasion. She is incredible in every way and her talent goes much beyond flowers. Tobey’s arrangements and flower choices are so beautiful and reflect her talent and past in landscaping. The arrangements are natural and wild, but in good way. It’s like Mother Nature herself helped put together your floral decor!
A big advantage to booking Tobey is she will help make sure your entire wedding theme comes together, not just the flowers. Our package came with a few hours of event design consultation that ended up being crucial to making our wedding stunning. Tobey met with us, our day of coordinator, and the event coordinator at our wedding venue and helped us design the entire look and feel of our wedding. I was very stressed about linens choices and Tobey helped us pick the perfect ones that met our budget.
Speaking of budget, Tobey found ways for us to achieve the look we wanted by reusing pieces throughout the night, and coming up with three different centerpieces that let us have an over-the-top feel without breaking the bank.
Not only is she fabulous at her job, but she’s a joy to work with and has a vibrant personality. My (now) husband and I knew right away we wanted to work with Tobey because her personality was so fabulous. It’s such a shame we barely interacted with her the day of! Her team swept in, set everything up, and was gone in a flash it was incredible!
Hire Tobey and you’ll be so thrilled. We loved working with her and so will you!
We've been lucky enough to have Tobey design floral creations for our restaurant for the last few years. They are stunning and receive daily comments and compliments. She's extremely easy to work with. We are so lucky to have her in our community!
