Hi I’m Alyssa Grogan, the maker behind RPC! The company was inspired by the faux florals created for my own wedding day.

Wedding planning proved to be incredibly exciting, but also super overwhelming. . . Yes, I’m talking about the cost. We started with one budget, then after a little more research, had another, bigger budget and then another EVEN bigger—you get the point. It was INSANITY. But, of all the corners we planned to cut and spending goals we made for the big day, I knew I wanted flowers like those I pinned on my Pinterest page (wayy before we were even planning. . . or before I was engaged. . . or was in a serious relationship. . . that’s super normal I’ve heard. . . it’s fine).

I’ve been a crafter and artist for most of my existence. So when I discovered the wonderful world that is faux flowers at my local craft stores and then online, I was in heaven! I had always imagined silk flowers to be plastic looking, over saturated with unnatural color palettes, and just look blatantly fake. However, now thanks to improvements in faux floral design (whomever you lovely geniuses are, I appreciate you) I was able to track down stems and greenery that look so legitimate you have to squint and blink at least 3 times, then put feelers on them, just to make sure they’re still fake!

So through trial and error I put together a (very within our budget) wedding floral collection that was all silk flowers. I checked the “wedding flower” box off my to-do list and tucked the finished arrangements in storage a few months before the wedding. The day-of we brought them to the venue without the fuss, mess, or surprise of real flowers, fluffed those bad boys up and the best part, NO ONE COULD TELL they were silk!

Immediately after, I created The Rogue Petal Company to extend my services to guys and gals alike who want to fulfill their floral Pinterest desires without breaking the bank. The RPC portfolio is full of wedding pieces, but we have the capabilities to realize faux floral needs beyond weddings, including props for shoots, home staging, and home decor.
