I have loved flowers all my life. My grandmother had an amazing peony and rose garden that we’d water at sunset everyday. My parents named me after a flower so I believe it was my God given destiny to create beauty with florals.
After working many years for different floral companies I finally had the courage to start my own business. It wasn’t until I was living in Haiti that I finally put my dream into a plan, and when I came back to San Diego put my plan into action. Starting a business has been both challenging and rewarding in so many ways. My first year I only had 5 weddings, it was rough. I was bummed and discouraged but did not give up! My second year I had over 50 and have sold out each year since then. It took a lot of hard work, passion, discipline and perseverance. It's been a dream to see everything come together and I am so, so grateful for my incredible team and all the wonderful couples who chose us to create magic for their wedding day.
I am newly married to the love of my life, who challenges, encourages and supports me everyday. He holds me accountable, he is patient, kind and loves everyone so hard. He loves me so much that he comes along and cleans up weddings at 1am on a Saturday night. (the struggle is real!) I LOVE being married and my wedding was everything I’ve ever dreamt of and I wish I could relive it again in slow motion.
We create a timeless aesthetic and design using blooms, textures and floras. The atmosphere is so important and I believe that the florals create and completely transform a space. Our goal is to awaken feelings, emotions and love right when they enter the space. The OMG faces make our hearts skip a beat. We under promise and over deliver, always.
Q + A
What's your favorite thing to create?
I love installations! From hanging flower walls to floating arches I want to dream it up with you and make a piece that will be remember forever and spark a feeling when people enter the space.
Three things that make your heart smile?
1. I love my husbands laugh. His real, unfiltered, almost crying contagious kind of laugh.
2. Being generous. There's something about buying a random couple their dinner or the car behind you their coffee that makes my day. Making a complete stranger smile is good for the soul. I don't know how to explain it but you should try it:)
3. Hosting. I love having all of my favorite people together around a table eating great food and drinking a nice glass of red. My parents were always so generous with their time and home having all sorts of people over all the time. I am one of eight (yes, I have 4 sisters and 3 brothers) and I love all the noise and laughter that happens when people gather around and break bread.
If you could go anywhere tomorrow where would you go and who would you take?
My husband of course! I love Europe, Prague is one of my favorites. Our next trip will be Italy, we've never been and we love Italian food!
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Nature, dreams and humans. I love the outdoors. I pin random locations in my maps that have beautiful trees and foliage that I can later come back and clip from for my clients. My father in law has a video of me foraging the morning of my wedding for an installation I dreamt of the night before haha.
What are you dreams and goals for the future?
Ugh, this one is so hard. I am such a dreamer. My husband chuckles when I randomly drift away in a daydream. I would love to have a healthy happy family, a few modern venue(s), an Organic Flora studio in Northern California, a beach house in Maui, write a book, and teach + inspire creatives in the wedding industry and much much more.
hat advice can you give your brides?
Trust the process and have fun! You only get married once so choose joy and don't sweat the small stuff. My goal is for you to have an OMG reaction when you walk into your wedding. I want your heart to love every single detail, bloom and instal. I promise you won't regret it!
