I know this might sound strange, but I have been in the closet with my wedding flowers. I have been co-owner in a floral wholesale in Houston for the past 21 years. I had been doing floral design for 6 years before that. Once we started the wholesale, other designers were upset with me doing weddings. They thought I had an unfair advantage. Yes I did have some perks like using the 1,000 square foot cooler! I gained a lot of floral knowledge with owning the wholesale. I have now sold my half of the company to my partner and I am FREE to shout from the mountain tops that I do weddings! I am so excited to start my new business in Richmond. It is a fabulous city that I am thrilled to be a part of!
