The beauties behind Natural Beauties
Where does the name come from, well at first glance you may see their beautiful floral designs, but if you look much deeper into the twins that make up Natural Beauties Floral Inc you will find beauties themselves.
They have a passion for true design, and a standard of excellence that is unmatched.
We sat down with Jillian and Jan Yuhas to do a quick, 5 Questions in 5 Minutes,
to introduce you to this Chicago-based floral design studio.
JHD: Tell me how Natural Beauties Floral Inc. was born.
NB: It all started back in 2007, when we decided to take a floral class for fun. We quickly realized this was our true passion, even though our grandmother planted the seed for floral design long ago. At the age of eight our grandmother, a master gardener, taught us floral design. We competed in local and state competitions for many years receiving prestigious awards for our design skills. We currently have 24 years of design experiences and are looking forward to many more.
JHD: If floral design wasn’t the first choice in careers for the two of you, what was it that you both thought you would be doing as a career?
NB: We both have our masters in marriage and family therapy and so in a way we are doing what we love by helping couples plan their wedding..
JHD: Do you feel like over the years you speak to a certain bridal style?
NB: Yes, most of our brides and grooms have a chic or romantic aesthetic for their overall design.
JHD: For newly engaged brides, what advice can you give in regards to style? Honing in one concept vs. all the confusing wedding inspiration that is out there.
NB: The initial phase of our floral process begins with a lifestyle questionnaire. We ask a series of questions based on the various facets of one’s lifestyle choices. The couple’s choices are then conceptualized into a wedding style/decor correlating with their personalities.
JHD: What is the average cost of a NB wedding?
NB: Our weddings begin at 3k for florals, plus tax and installation for full service weddings.
JHD: What is the one thing most brides don’t know about the twins of NB?
NB: Most people would never guess that we come from a very small town in southern Illinois with less than 1000 people.
We loved getting to know the designers of Natural Beauties Floral Inc. a little more, and hope you did as well. You can find more inspiration of their work on their website.
Check in tomorrow for a post on how you can have your cake and eat it too with engagement ring inspiration!
