Preserving fresh flowers, wedding dresses and memorabilia in heirloom quality encasements

Custom keepsakes for all the special moments in your life

Flower Preservation

Your flowers are preserved and creatively placed in an encasement of your choice. Display encasements include frames, domes, shadow boxes and jewelry boxes. Photos, invitations and other memorabilia can be added where space is available at no additional cost.

Most flowers and greenery are dried in 3 to 5 days. Our superior drying method produces better shape and color retention. Click here to see before and after examples.


Preserve the bridal bouquet, a bridesmaid's bouquet, Mom's corsage, a boutonniere and other wedding flowers. When there is space in your chosen encasement we can include other items such as an invitation, a picture, or your cake server at no additional charge.

We encourage your floral preservation to be a part of your wedding planning process. See what flowers preserve best and our tips for preparing your flowers for preservation.

Memorial Tributes

At times of loss, our family and friends express their love and support through the gift of flowers. We can use the extensive experience of Suspended In Time® to preserve these special gifts and help you create a memorial tribute keepsake that honors your loved one and celebrates their life. Photos or other items can be included in an encasement along with the preserved flowers. Individual flowers can be preserved for family members. We also encase military flags.

Sometimes a bridal bouquet does not survive the honeymoon or accidentally gets lost along the way. How about a commemorative? Bring us a picture of the bouquet and we will use the same kinds of flowers to create a custom encasement similar to what could have been done with the originals. This is a great gift for a special anniversary - no matter how long you have been married! We can do this for other types of special occasion flowers as well.
