Eddie Zaratsian: Wedding Design To Feed Your Soul
By Hillari DeSchane
He influences the wedding and lifestyle influencers. From Jo Malone and Restoration Hardware to Glamour and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, tastemakers have made Eddie Zaratsian’s visionary designs some of today’s most coveted and copied floral elements.
“My passion is beautiful flowers,” Zaratsian says. “They feed my soul.” Unpack that deceptively simple credo and you’ll find an artist with an eye for the beauty in unexpected elements, dedicated to expressing an authentic vision of each couple through his floral designs.
Budgets are often unlimited in Hollywood, where Zaratsian is a ‘go to’ designer. But trust the man who vibrates to the soul of the design experience to have never lost sight that beauty belongs to everyone—and every budget. “Have a transparent conversation with your wedding professional,” he counsels. “It’s more about the look and feel you achieve than the materials you use.”
You can even learn Zaratsian’s techniques in his popular floral design video tutorials on YouTube. “I like giving education back,” he says. “Even if you can’t afford a florist, you can do these.”
Passion. Creativity. Soul. Eddie Zaratsian styles them into his life—and his design.
"Don't sabotage your own wedding. You have hired professionals to handle the details. Allow them. On rehearsal night - take a deep breath, relax and stop planning. Focus on "now". Don't miss the most important moment in your life. Be in the present and enjoy your family and friends who have come to be part of your "Now". Even if you feel some element of the day has to be changed, no one will notice except you. You are hyper-sensitive to everything right now."
