Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. A wedding I did in Washington, DC during the rehearsal for the ceremony. The Mother of the Bride came to me and said that the flowers she purchased for the 15 centerpieces that she had planned to make herself were late and was there anything I could do to assist her. After the rehearsal was over I went to the Mother's Hotel picked up the flowers, vases, and supplies and agreed to design the centerpieces myself for the next day. When I got home and opened the flowers they are not in open bloom and it was going to be difficult to use these flowers. Early the next morning I ran to my floral wholesale house and picked up some additional flowers to make the centerpieces along with the flowers the Mother provided and some hard work the 15 centerpieces were completed on time and were beautiful. The Mother of the Bride was quite pleased and paid me above the quoted price requested.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. I started working in the floral business during high school with our family business in San Antonio, Texas. After having children in my early 20's I began to work in the IT computer field. I re-entered the floral design field again by assisting family and friends with events and wedding and realized that my passion is for Floral Design, Event Planning and Coordination. I get great pleasure out of watching the events unfold with elegance, joy, and love.
