Is this a family business ?
Yes! I come from a long line of small business owners. We are small enough to keep it friendly and personal (my kids sweep the studio floor for gumballs), yet big enough to style 4-day-long elaborate events.
What is the most rewarding thing about wedding and event floral design for you?
Making my client's dreams a reality. I know that sounds cliché, but there is nothing more satisfying to me than the look of joy on a bride's face when she first sees her flowers.
What sets you apart from your competition?
How accessible we are. We understand that this is a stressful process and we know how many hours you spent on all those blogs, earmarking magazines and pulling swatches. We LISTEN, and when we sit down to design your wedding florals, all those things will come into play in perfect, balanced beauty.
If you could be any flower, what would it be?
Something wild for sure. Probably growing on the side of a big mountain and I'd only bloom for a couple of weeks out of the year. Oh how Freud would love me!
