Customized by Cynthia
Bringing your vision to life
I’m Cynthia Thorsen. I am based in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have worked in the industry for 30 years. Gardening and designing florals has always been an outlet for relaxation and creativity. Creating customized events for all my clients is a passion of mine. Each detail brings to life a wonderful and memorable wedding day. I love every bit of it. It seems like I have worked with flowers my entire life. I have created all types of floral arrangements, for many different events. Every moment in life is special and I can’t think of a better way to highlight those moments than to throw some flowers and magic at it.
“Cynthia is the perfect combination of professional and fun! The day of the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing full well that Cynthia and her assistant had things covered. I would highly recommend using Customized By Cynthia for floral and event planning needs.”

No detail goes unnoticed and everything she does is amazing. I wanted something outside of the box and unique and Cynthia did just that. 11/10 for the florals and event Cynthia created for me.”

How did you get started in the wedding industry? I grew up in a small town known for corn, milk, and eggs. I learned to appreciate hard work and the value of things that grew in the ground. As a teenager, I worked in my aunt’s floral shop prepping and learning about flowers. From the earlier years, I have created my own out-of-the-box style. I love mixing the natural beauty of flowers with uncharacteristic objects, fabrics, and materials.
Where do you find your design inspiration? My inspiration comes from my experiences. I love to travel and am amazed by all the different cultures which help influence me. When it comes to wedding design, I build off the bride and grooms experiences, then add my flair.
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? I have worked with so many couples and I am always amazed to hear their story and how they came together. I like working with couples who dream big, think unique, and know their budget. My responsibility is to make those dreams come to life.
What is your favorite part about a wedding? My favorite part of weddings is the ceremony. I adore working behind the scenes. I am committed to all the tiny details that go into that final walk down the aisle. There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes to create the perfect day. I may be texting the DJ to announce this or that, play a special song, or queue the caterer to present the cake. I focus on the details, so that the bridal party and guests can simply enjoy the moment.
