Pops of Plum is the creation of renowned wedding expert Sarah Campbell. In her early 20’s Sarah found her calling in the wedding industry and founded Historic Events, a thriving event planning firm. From that experience she saw a need in the industry for a high-end florist serving Annapolis and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Seeing this need, she launched Intrigue Design & Décor, concentrating on high-end weddings and social events on the East Coast. Intrigue’s focus is on premium events with custom-designed flowers, furniture, accents and lighting. The planning for these events requires a series of in-person consultations and an ample budget to bring the look together. Intrigue has been highly successful: the phones are ringing, e-mails popping and social media buzzing. The challenge was that Sarah had to limit the number of events Intrigue would commit to, as well as requiring a minimum budget for events, given all of the custom details that went into each design. She realized that there were many brides, grooms and party planners who had a desire for well-styled flowers within a more attainable budget, and Pops of Plum was born. Working with Liz & Ryan Photography, Sarah and the Intrigue team have created a series of floral designs featuring the most popular styles -- all neatly photographed and categorized, making it as easy to buy wedding flowers as it is to buy a fabulous pair of shoes.
Each year, we choose between one and three wedding vendors from several different categories to feature as our “handpicked” vendors. For 2013, winners were chosen through the Chesapeake Bridal Awards. Based on their phenomenal work in the wedding industry, strong reputations, and incredible talent, we feel that these are some of the best in the Chesapeake area. For 2013, these bridal and wedding shops have earned our Handpicked seal of approval!
