Owner & Designer - Terra Bella Event Florals
Growing up, I was always drawn to weddings – the romance, the beautiful details, and the endless styles and possibilities of celebration. Now, I feel so fortunate to call floral design for weddings and events my “job.” My dad has always told me that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I find so much gratification being involved in some of the most special moments of people’s lives.
I wouldn’t say that one design style defines me, and I’m proud of that. Getting to work with couples’ unique visions is what keeps things interesting! I have worked with a range of styles, including romantic, natural, rustic, boho, and elegant. I enjoy staying up to date on trends and popular styles, but my ultimate goal is making my clients’ visions come to life with some guidance and expertise. I would say I pay great attention to detail and really listen to what is important to each couple, in order to turn their ideas and favorite flowers into a cohesive design and reality on their wedding day.
After graduating college in San Diego, I decided to pursue the wedding industry. While working for several talented and acclaimed floral designers, I also earned my Career Diploma in Floral Design by completing a professional program to learn the technical aspects of design. I returned to my hometown of Santa Ynez in 2011 and started Terra Bella Event Florals. Life has been a fantastic whirlwind ever since!
When I’m not working on flowers, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our young children, Isla and Landon, snuggling with our Boston terrier, Luna, sipping wine from our very own wine country, and traveling.
I’d love the opportunity to get to know you and learn about the dreams you have for your special event!
