About The Artist
“Floral design was only a hobby for many years. As I became a corporate event coordinator, I began utilizing my skills more and more, and I was encouraged to take the leap and become a full time floral designer. I started just watching others and learned by working next to the most talented in the business on some of the most magical weddings. Now 13 years later, I own my own business, and never imagined my career and passion for floral would combine!
I am all about texture and combining unique and unexpected elements into floral designs for a unique look for each bride. Getting to know couples and who they really are and bringing their personality out in all my designs is the most enjoyable aspect of what I do.”
About The Design
“All my favorites – peonies, greenery and texture! Oak bark and natural driftwood provided the uniquely perfect base for this colorful explosion of floral. Utilizing both the wood and the floral creates a natural but very refined arrangement perfect for a centerpiece or even a focal piece to greet guests.”
