Our Story

August Sage and Violet is a Brooklyn based botanical styling and floral design studio set within the backdrop of industrial Brooklyn, New York. Our naturalistic and stylized aesthetic works to convey the nuances and poetics of botanicals from thoughtfully arranged compositions to large scale installations. We work on an array of artistically styled and uniquely envisioned weddings and events where we see our clients as collaborators in a beautifully expressive creative process.
