a bit about me
Since the beginning, it has been all about inspiration, freedom, empowerment and creativity.
I have worked as a florist for almost a decade. Flowers have been a huge part of my life, ever since I stumbled upon the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University. While attending school at A&M [WHOOP!], I took as many floral design courses as I could, and even had to mildly harass and beg the professor to allow me to register as a non-major student. During my time at Texas A&M, I was briefly a member of TAMU SAIFD(Student American Institute of Floral Design) and loved preparing an setting up huge banquets before each home football game. In 2014, I earned my Bachelors of Science in Agricultural Science and began teaching High School Agricultural Science. Alongside running my business, I also teach High School Agricultural Science and Floral Design and have a huge passion for teaching and educating others- especially in the world of FLOWERS.
I married to my high-school sweetheart in November of 2016. After college, we moved to Central Texas where we currently reside in Lockhart, TX. In 2020, amidst the pandemic we stumbled upon a positive light to our dream- 5 acres with an old farmhouse to renovate; we came upon the reality of having the space to CREATE, GROW and LOVE.
Perry's Petals is a growing wedding floral studio with so much on the horizon. In the coming months you can look forward to many things. You'll be seeing locally grown, romantic flowers and elements of nature in each wedding! Our small flower farm will produce flowers to enhance weddings/events and to provide a local natural touch, Can't wait for you to grow with us!
Creative drive keeps things up to date and interesting. Here are a few things that I absolutely adore and find so much inspiration in:
All things Flowers + Plants, Bees, the Color Yellow, Americana/Folk Music, ATX Hiking Trails, Sunrises, Local Coffee Shops, Agricultural Paraphernalia, Wildflowers, Vintage Finds + Antiques, unique Textures, and Texas Nature and Traditions.
