I am a designer at heart and worked as a clothing designer for over 17 years, mostly in New York City. I had my own line and shop in Manhattan and also worked for larger companies, including Ralph Lauren. After moving back to my native Santa Barbara with my family I was ready for a career change. I learned to love flowers growing up on the beautiful California coast and more so at one of my first jobs at a local flower stand. After creating flowers for a friend’s wedding, I was inspired to make floral design my job. I love my work and will never look back!
I have an eclectic style and like to use unusual materials in my work. I love the immediacy of working with flowers and the emphasis on color and texture, which was always my favorite part of clothing design. I love the challenge of making something traditional with a new spin, but also to create out of the box arrangements. I am equally inspired to create large installations and dramatic altars, as I am to make boutonnieres and corsages. I believe it is always important to use seasonal and local materials where possible, but, at the same time, your wedding is a once in a lifetime event so if you must have those peonies you must have those peonies!
I feel so honored to design flowers for each couple’s big day and take my role very seriously. I have been married for 14 years and LOVED designing my own wedding and know that you only get to do it once. No two weddings are the same so I listen very carefully to each couple and incorporate their ideas and desires into the design to create a personal experience.
