I’m not big on talking about myself, but I do know that I love what I do and I do what I love. I am known to hunker down inside of Barnes and Noble with a hot cup of coffee and get “inspired”, I don’t remember who said this but I stole it out of an interior design book, “A famous(ish) magazine editor-in-chief once put me down for rollerblading. My response? I skated home and never gave it another thought. And a snooty socialite once told me that having a Japanese Maple in my garden was “suburban”. So I got two more. Life’s too short to cut yourself off from the things (and people) you’re cuckoo for just because someone else doesn’t like them. Never start a sentence with “I’m (not) the type of person who…” Don’t impoverish your life that way! Instead, embrace your inner blading, aerobic-loving, fad-following self. Remember: Those who rejected disco music missed out on the party. Be sure to be the first to arrive and the last to leave.” This quote really stuck me, It’s your day, do it your way! Weddings should be no different. I love each and every one of my clients and admire them for their individuality, I pride myself on helping guide them and not change them. I hope you find inspiration in my work, like I do in each of my brides.
Being the daughter of a florist myself, I chose to name my business Flowerchild… for quite simply literal purposes. I grew up around weddings and was lugged from early-morning market runs in San Francisco from the start. As a child, weddings and flowers were somewhat of an annoyance. Bombarding my life and semi-private space. It’s ironic how things change. I realized early on in my college years that flowers were a huge part of my life. Ever since then, I’ve been gladly hooked.
Mom started her business out of our modest family home when I was just a baby. My bedroom was typically crowded with buckets of flowers and kept at a chilly more flower-friendly climate. She eventually grew out of our place and is still doing weddings in her 1915 craftsmen-style bungalow in Sacramento today.
After being around flowers for all of my years I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them. They remind me of home. I moved to New Jersey to be with now husband and baby scarlet, where I immediately sought work in Brooklyn under other florists. I have designed for talented industry pros Tin Can Studios, Flowerwild, BRRCH, and Bows and Arrows. they gave me all the floral nourishment I needed away from home and now here I am doing what I love most.
We embrace the natural quirks and beauty of our blooms. We let the flowers speak for themselves, vines and oddE foliage set our hearts a flutter. Either sourcing them from local farms or hand picking them at market for your special event. We cherish the friendships we make with our clients and are thrilled to be apart of someone’s most special day.
