Hello Darlings! My name is Marielle Oestermeyer and I am so lucky to be interning with Hello Darling this summer. So far my internship experience has been amazing and I cannot wait to learn more from the ladies at Hello Darling.
I always seem to be mixing bold styled items with current classic ones and I like to define my style broadly as modern vintage. I love shopping at a wide variety of stores and I believe that this large range shapes my personal style. From season to season I like trying new trends to see how they fit into my aesthetic. This traditional grey couch accented with a printed black and white Boston terrier pillow and gold circular table are exactly what I envision for my first home. The space is perfect for curling up with my two silky terriers, Linus and Lucy. In this living space I imagine entertaining my friends and serving my famous blueberry cake on these timeless white cake stands. I love how ranunculus, peony, garden rose, freesia, gardenia, and dusty miller complement anemone, which is one of my favorite flowers, and I will be placing this arrangement throughout my future home.
Floral arrangements offer the opportunity to create something beautiful and creative in a variety of ways. I love how each flower has a unique personality, much like each bride, and how these traits help shape the creation of a one-of-a-kind arrangement. This personalization is what drew me to Hello Darling and made me want to learn the art of floral and special event design, especially after seeing their flawless work on my oldest sister’s wedding. Hello Darling is also designing the floral and lighting for my middle sister’s wedding and hopefully one day my own! Working on constructing the perfect chuppa, floral arrangement, lighting, or any specific detail adds up to a large workload and I love the constant bustle of setting up each exquisite event. It is still early into my internship here at Hello Darling and I have already learned so much from these wonderful ladies and I am so eager experience more. Please feel free to introduce yourself to me at future events as I am so looking forward to meeting all of you as I intern at Hello Darling!
