About Nancy

January 1, 2009

There have been many changes in wedding design since I first became fascinated with the magical world of all things bridal. When I first dreamed of a career in the wedding business, there were no titles to encompass what today's wedding floral and event designers do. I
n the late 80's and early 90's when I first became fascinated with the art of wedding creation, I thought I should call myself a wedding planner. As the years continued I became drawn to the beauty and the "decor" aspect of a wedding. Since there were no wedding decorator programs in existence, I decided that the best route to go was floral design. Boy, that was the best decision I ever made.
From the first moment I seriously devoted myself to working with flowers, I was awed by how flowers could be transformed into a thing of pure beauty and art.

A few weeks after being exposed to wedding floral design, I enrolled in one of the nation's most respected floristry program. The process of floral design continues to fascinate me as it evolves. Whether you are doing a hand tied bouquet, a massive floral installation, a complex pave piece, or an Ikebana inspired arrangement, the creative possibilities are truly limited only by one's skills, willingness to learn, and commitment.

Each week as I create a new wedding, I continue to feel an excitement that is partly a mixture of anxiousness for the unknown, anticipation of the creative process, and awareness that with each new project there are new challenges. To be a wedding floral designer today is to be ready for the unexpected.

I look forward to sharing my love for the art of wedding floral design and the experience that I've gained through over 300 weddings with you through the Wedding Floral Academy.
