Honoring Forever

Leah Baker, of Honoring Forever, is a vibrant newcomer in the Gainesville bridal industry. She custom makes dazzling brooch bouquets, with hand sewn ribbon roses, in a wide array of colors, along with matching bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnières.

These unique creations last a lifetime and can be displayed forever. She began the business in 2015 with partner Robin Freeman.

The inspiration for Honoring Forever began when Leah’s younger sister got engaged and wanted a broochbouquet. The two sisters created the first bouquet together and sparked a passion for the budding business.

Leah spends her free time chasing around her crazy toddler and teenager. She works part time in a dental office; an industry she has loved working in for the past ten years. She started this business as a way to spend more time being present with her sons and as a way to embrace a lifelong enthusiasm for all things crafty.
