Diane's Branches & Blooms
My intuition and imagination are my strengths.
I like to "bend the rules" and trust my intuition when it comes to designing. With an eye for details and a whimsical touch, I allow nature to lead me along as I design . . . lending to the shapes, curves and colors of the branches and blooms - hence, where the name for my business comes from.
All flowers and foliage are thoughtfully shopped for & carefully chosen. Living in California offers an amazing array of locally and sustainably grown flowers and greenery along with other natural elements such as pods, berries and branches. When necessary I will purchase some imported flowers and am careful to choose reputable growers who are in tune with a sustainable approach to growing and providing flowers and foliage.
I pour my heart into my work, and although flower design is so much fun for me, it can be demanding & oh-so-time-consuming. I often wonder if many people realize what goes into creating such special one-of-a-kind pieces?
It is hard work but the joy I personally get when I see the delight in the eyes of my clients fuels me to keep following this dream.
The time and energy put forth can be exhausting and yet So exhilarating at the same time! I am a bit of a perfectionist. It's all in the details. I strive to delight my client(s) ... my reward? ... well, it's that tiny tear gathering in the corner of their eye while the smile spreads across their face of course!
~I will sleep when I am finished~
It was San Francisco that indeed "stole my heart", or at
least where I gave it to the man I was to marry and with whom I share my happy home. Now here I am so many moons later and thanks to an incredible support system from my sweet family who continue to encourage me to "follow my heart" and grow my business I continue along this journey meeting so many lovely couples who entrust me with their floral dreams for their weddings and more and who allow me to be creative and bring their visions to life.
I design for the individual client, offering personalized,
one-on-one service with an attention to detail and only book a handful of weddings or events per calendar year.
~I will ask you a lot of questions; it's all in the details! ~
Listening to my clients and drinking in their stories allows me to weave their vision & dreams together with my imagination and sense of design to create memorable, magical and artistic florals.
I so look forward to hearing from you!
