If you had told me 20 years ago that I would be playing with flowers for a living, I would have laughed. I can't count the number of buckets I washed or deliveries I made while working at a flower shop in high-school, preparing for my get away to college in Ohio. However, my art degree somehow landed me at a corporate job in a cubical, and I soon realized that it wasn't for me. After years at Chicago's iconic The New Leaf Flower Shop, I found a passion for weddings. This is a dream job, but it is work; more work than most can imagine. Creating beautiful concepts from start to finish for couples on their special day is simply amazing and worth all the effort! When I am not designing at ASA, I am raising my 5 and 7 year old sons.
Ivan is the engine behind the scenes that keeps this company running smoothly. Even with coordinating a 3000 sq. ft. warehouse of inventory, prepping the materials for each event, and coordinating our set up and strike teams, his feathers are rarely ruffled. It also should be noted that real men know how to swag a backdrop properly set a place setting.
