Front Jacket Cover of "Flowers of the Heart" Book by Sharon McGukin

Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge would like to thank my friend Liese Gardner in LA, owner of Mecca Communications & author of one of my favorite, inspiring, "MUST READ" blogs, "Fuel Blog" for sending over this exciting information for me to feature here on my blog.

Sharon McGukin, one of the most sought after and charming floral designers in the country has just come out with a lovely brand new book on July 13, 2009 called "Flowers of the Heart".

I love that it will feature Sharon's beautiful work, + that she gives realistic wedding floral design advice for brides & moms in both English & Spanish!

But what really impressed me and inspired me to feature this story is the true joy & passion she has for her flowers, her art and what they mean to a wedding celebration,and in life. In Sharon's own words...

“When you celebrate with flowers,
when you bring family together,
when you take time to make celebrations of everyday events,
that’s when you enjoy living.”
--Sharon McGukin

Below I have included selected key highlights about the book from the Press Release sent to me by Liese...


Carrollton, Georgia – After years of sharing her wedding floral design expertise with top florists around the country, Sharon McGukin has taken her extensive knowledge of creating wedding floral plans and compiled it in a new book that is as entertaining, warm and genuine as she is.

Released July 13, 2009, Flowers of the Heart offers readers beautiful full-color photos of Sharon’s bouquets designed for actual weddings she has done along with studio photos.

While it is a beautiful book of floral photography, it is far from a vanity piece. The book is filled with valuable advice that the pros know and use; tips that help brides get the most from their floral design budget. It’s an informative book just right for the economic challenges brides face today.

Flowers of the Heart underlines Sharon’s belief in the power of the flower. Flowers have the ability to touch each person in a way that is both intimate and universal.

“The message of the book, and of all my work, is that flowers enhance quality of life,” Sharon says.

Along with advice on floral design for each season, Flowers of the Heart offers professional planning tips from traditional church weddings to organizing a destination wedding.

Brides will be inspired by photos and stories throughout Flowers of the Heart, but they will also receive such important and practical information as how to:

  • Organize a wedding plan
  • Hire a florist
  • Develop a style and theme
  • Design for the season
  • Work within a budget
  • Make an elegant entrance
  • Plan an at-home wedding like the pros
  • Include children in the ceremony
  • And more!
