wildly romantic, intimately designed


Iris & Honey is the work of founder Whitney Pelfrey with the assistance of her fellow Cincinnati creatives. 

We hosted our first styled editorial shoot in March of 2015 and three years later hosted our fully curated event in May of 2018 - it has been a wild ride ever since!

We believe in girl power, keeping products locally sourced and supporting small businesses. We create colorful, vibrant and jaw dropping installations of the most special of occasions.

We value teamwork. We value each other’s strengths and we acknowledge our weaknesses. We appreciate and value what we each bring to Poppies. We respect, trust and support each other.

We value honesty and integrity. We will treat each other, those we partner with and our customers with kindness and respect. We strive to learn, improve, adapt and innovate. We are committed to leading the way in what we do.

We believe in courage and humility. We will make mistakes and we will keep trying.

We love what we do! We are passionate about being joy makers and creators. We will always dream big and take risks.

We will never take for granted that we are welcomed into people’s homes to be a part of special events and celebrate their special days.

MEET OUR FOUNDER : Whitney Pelfrey

Welcome, new friend! My name is Whitney, I’m the mother of a precious 5-year- old daughter, Iris Danielle. I’m the owner of Native Iris Photography est. 2010 and the founder and lead curator of Iris & Honey. I’m a creator by trade!

Iris & Honey’s mission is to use my 8 years of knowledge and experience in the wedding industry to design and curate visually pleasing installations and vignettes. 

The name Iris & Honey was inspired by my 5-year-old daughter, Iris. She refers to Me, her [soon to be] Step-Dad and all of her other loved ones as her ‘Honeys’. What a better way to honor her and those she holds dear in her heart. While this business was inspired by her, it was created for you.

So welcome to Iris + Honey! I have a feeling this is going to be the start of a beautiful friendship!  Let’s get this party started!
