  • I am so excited to write our Talk of the Town Thursday post today! We are featuring Botanica Floral Designs and I couldn't wait to talk about Audrey and her fabulous work! Audrey with Botanica Floral Designs has been the florist for several weddings and events we've photographed in the last couple of years. We have also worked directly with Audrey on several Memory Journalists' shoots. Audrey is so talented and an all-around wonderful person. She is always so helpful, timely and super easy to work with. A couple of times we have had last minute flower emergencies and Audrey came to our rescue. Audrey, we can't thank you enough! We hope our readers enjoy some insight on Botanica Floral Designs including our fun interview and several storyboards (of course).

    Audrey Chaney, Floral stylist and founder of Botanica Floral Designs, is passionate about wedding flowers and the beauty behind well-crafted wedding design. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Horticulture Science from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Audrey began her pursuit of starting her own design firm in Sacramento. Specializing in wedding flowers and event floral design, Botanica Floral Designs has grown to be a premier wedding floral design studio where clients are offered a boutique experience, personalized service and dramatic results.

    I love this photo of Audrey! Not only is she talented but so beautiful inside and out. This photo was taken by David Pascolla Photography.

  • We caught up with Audrey recently for a quick interview. Check out what we learned.....

    How long have you been a floral designer and what made you choose this career? My goodness, I have been designing flowers for over ten years now, but remember as far back as being in elementary school when I started my fascination with flowers. I think flowers and horticulture have just always been a part of my life, and I am a true believer in making what you love your career.

    What is your favorite wedding element or moment? Well, I LOVE weddings, and it's more than just my love of flowers. My favorite thing about a wedding is how "true to style" it matches the couple. The REAL PEOPLE getting married. Whether you like fried chicken, dancing to crazy songs, or sharing your family's jam recipe, I simply love when the wedding day reflects the bride and groom and how they live and love life. This is the one day that is about you as a couple and all the quirkiness which makes you, YOU!

    What do you think is the biggest thing that sets you apart from other wedding florists? My creativity and versatile style. My design background allows me to create different designs and styles as well as create fresh and innovative ideas to keep my clients' events one of a kind. Some examples of this would include our use of interesting and unique elements, whether they be fresh botanicals or vessels and containers to make our clients' events totally unique.

    What's the craziest "theme" you have ever incorporated into wedding flowers? Most of our clients don't take huge risks when it comes to their wedding flowers... so nothing too crazy-weird per se. I've had clients incorporate fish in their arrangements, I've also had their pets wear flowers, and we've done some other "fun" elements such as this. It's got to be different, but not sooo different that it's weird or doesn't make sense.

    Is there any other info you would like to add about Botanica Floral Designs? We have an awesome blog you and all your friends should follow, it's loaded with helpful tips, featured weddings and all things wedding. You can check it out here: Botanica Blog

  • You may have seen these photos on our blog or Botanica's blog but I just had to throw in one more storyboard. Audrey did such an amazing job on Caitlin and Sean's wedding flowers and incorporated gold fish for the couple's fish theme!
