Learning from one of Utah's top Wedding Floral Designers

Updated: Apr 10, 2019


I believe that this life is meant to be enjoyed. To dream big, fail miserably, and get back up and try again. I also believe that it's okay to try new things and learn new skills even if we have to take a step into the dark to make it happen. I have always wanted to be a business owner. I've had a dozen ideas over the years including - photography, paper design, furniture refurbishing, painting, recording artist and vocal coach. I tried all of these things. Yep! All of them. Somewhere on itunes and spotify is an album with my name on it. My husband accuses me of having my head on a swivel - he even bought that domain name for me! Just in case! But after planning my daughters wedding, I fell in love with the wedding industry. I started planning events for friends and family, offering my services for free, but coming back time and again to floral design. I read every book I could find, watched countless youtube videos and created lots of beautiful floral arrangements and bridal bouquets. But it wasn't until I met Mandy Ogaz of The Potted Pansy, that I finally felt I had a handle on my craft. We spent the day together creating beautiful pieces. And a soggy evening with Loni Sue Photography taking gorgeous shots of our creations. She inspired me to think outside the box, to look at flowers in a new way and play with colors and textures. My work reached new heights after that day, and I haven't looked back since. If you are thinking of starting a business in floral design, find a mentor. Someone that can encourage you and answer questions about the wedding floral business. Trust me, it's worth the cost in gold! These pictures from over a year ago, can attest to that....
