Hey, it's me Vicky...
Yes, I've been in the flower business for over 20 years now - and still love it!
I started my floral journey working at the San Francisco Flower Mart (my college job as I finished my undergraduate in Business at SFSU). The best college job ever!! If you haven't been to the SF Flower Mart, it's a must - it's flower heaven. I ended up working there for more than 8 years!
After graduating from SFSU, I completed the floristry program at CCSF further expanding my design skills.
When a huge opportunity presented itself - I took the plunge and became the owner of my first retail flower shop in San Francisco. After a great run of 4 years, I sold the shop after becoming pregnant with my second daughter.
Fast forward...I opened my second retail flower shop in Downtown Sac then decided to focus only on floral design for EVENTS & WEDDINGS.
And here we are now.
I still feel as passionate about flowers as when I worked at the flower market many, many years ago.
I believe my clients can tell how excited I get talking about flowers and what we can create for their wedding day. It proves even more after, when my clients tell me how happy they were with their florals - that feeling is amazing!
Some exciting news... I started a floral workshop series "Blooms & Bubbly", where I get to share the floral design knowledge & skills I've gained over the years and pair the experience with a little bit of bubbly. Because why not? Please check out our Blooms & Bubbly page for more info.
