Golden Pear Flowers Reviews

I believe that floral design is simply one form of art.  After graduating from design school I worked as a retail florist for several years to gain experience.  I soon realized that my real passion was for wedding and event design and started my floral design studio in 1999.  Since then I have designed wedding flowers for hundreds of couples.  I love all aspects of the design process; getting to know the couples, walking through venues, meeting with the bride and her mother as they choose the linens, planning the designs and then, of course, the real fun - getting my hands on the flowers!

I grow many of the blooms and foliages we use in our designs.  I also try to source as many of the blooms from local growers as possible, thankful that I live and work in the Willamette Valley where that is easy to do.

Like nature itself, good design is always changing, which is why my team and I continually take classes and workshops and educate ourselves on the newest flower varieties and design trends….. and I love making new friends through flowers!
