I’m Amanda, a single mommy to a little handsome heartbreaker named Bane. I’m a hopeless romantic that believes in fairytales. I first started working in the floral industry in 2001 at a grocery store flower shop, and continued to do so as a part time job throughout high school and college. I began my own floral business in 2009 as a brick and mortar traditional flower shop after graduating JMU with a BFA in Interior Design. In 2012 I decided to follow my design passion for creating personally customized spaces for weddings — we have been specializing in weddings since then.

I am a strong believer that we are capable of whatever we set our heart and mind to achieve. When I was in high school, I suffered from severe depression and near suicide — I was told by administrators I would never amount to anything and after being expelled from high school, I decided it was not up to what everyone else thought. I WAS capable. I graduated early with straight A’s, managed to get into JMU and stay on the Dean’s list every semester. I have chosen to use my passion and talents to not only bring happiness to the lives of those around me, but to inspire and uplift those that are living their own testimony.
