Wedding Sites and Services would like to introduce you to Floral Wild, a florist who goes above and beyond to help provide the details that make your wedding a day to remember. They enjoy every detail that goes into completing an arrangement and dazzling your guests, from the imagination process to pruning each and every flower with love to making full-blown arrangements and lovely decor. Let's meet Owner/Designer Adriana Luevano, who jokes, "Kota my Shiba Inu is the brains of the operation, I just enjoy designing!"
What inspired you want to be a florist?
Working as event coordinator inspired me to become a florist. I was self-taught while doing in-house floral arrangement at another company, and continued my journey with my own venture, Floral Wild.
How did you get your start in the special event industry?
I started in catering as a logistics manager, from there I moved up to being an event coordinator and in-house florist. I’ve enjoyed and loved the food and beverage industry for many years. I am fortunate that I had a chance to explore and expand my love for florals, while handling high end catering and weddings at my previous job. I’m overjoyed that my life has headed in this direction! :)
How long have you been in business?
We just got started, but YEARS of experience in high quality events both private/social and corporate.
How did you learn your craft?
Self-taught and learned from the talented Maggie Biget at the school of Floral Arts LLC.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
Seeing clients' faces light up when the decor and floral arrangements come together and become their dream come true. We take pride, ownership, and care with each of our floral designs.
Also, we provide outstanding customer service to each client. We enjoy taking orders for arrangements and truly listening to the client and designing something unique for their event or home.
How would you describe your style?
Wild, fun and elegant!!!! Each and every arrangement is one of a kind and specially customized.
How would you describe your personality?
Fun and bubbly, yet determined :)
What type of client is best suited for you?
People with great imaginations! Clients who can trust us in creating and designing their vision. Also, clients who aren't too traditional and hope to have their personality in the designs as well.
What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?
Hiking with my dog a lot. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, I love crafty cocktails and food. I also love to travel any chance I get.
What trends do you love or would like to see be left behind?
I love the bohemian look and anything that has to do with tropical flowers. I love rose gold trends and greenery. Ultraviolet is the color of the year which is a fantastic color. It's nice to put a spin on any new trends to make new ones. Floral crowns have definitely become a favorite of mine, little ladies love them!
If you met with a bride and groom and literally had ONE minute to tell them why they should use your company, what would you say?
We would love the opportunity to make your floral experience one of a kind. We specialize in taking the stress away from any situation small or large. Our professional approach and one of a kind services set us apart from other florists. From start to finish we work with you to make sure each and every detail is handled with care.
Describe the most challenging event you’ve done.
Battling the wind as we decorated a 9 foot arch with a six-foot ladder. Being exhausted from binding over 150 feet of greenery did not help. We watched as tables and signs were blown over by the wind. Later struggling to find all the groomsmen and brides was just an added bonus to the day! We conquered each challenge one at a time and presented one of the most beautiful weddings yet!
What would previous clients say was the main reason they chose your company?
Customer service and special attention that we give to each and every person regarding their arrangements is one of a kind. We take pride in the work and make sure that every detail is handled properly. We make ordering flowers fun!
What sets you apart from other florists?
One of a kind service and attention to detail. We go above and beyond to make each occasion special. We also deliver, we try our best to work with our client’s budget.
How far in advance should couples contact you to start their planning with you?
The planning process can never start too soon. Things to consider are: the venue, colors, theme of the wedding, what season or date, if you would like additional decor or thank you pieces, and their budget. Each person is unique with their inspirations and desires and we want to cater to their specific wants/needs!
What tips or advice can you give couples planning their big day?
Talk it out and give yourself plenty of time for planning. Let your imagination take you on a floral wild ride. We will do our best to meet your expectations and accommodate your needs. We specialize in making sure every aspect is covered, so you don’t have to.
