Welcome back to another installment of Real Weddings Magazine’s Partner Profiles!
Today, we highlight Katie Edwards of Ambience Floral Design. We’ve had the great fortune of working with Katie on several of our photo shoots, and her work is always tremendously creative and top-notch! Take it away Katie!
Specialty? Super-fresh flowers, super-fresh design, super-fabulous service!
When did you establish your business? 2002
What sets you apart from your competition? Our clients tell us that we are easy to do business with, that we understand their vision even when they don’t and that our flowers last for a very long time.
Where do you find inspiration? Everywhere! In a torn pair of jeans, in the shimmer of a bird’s feather, in the colors and textures and forms everywhere in nature, in metal, in glass in the soil. It’s all about being open.
When you opened shop, what was your promise to your customers? Great service! To listen, to see their vision, to deliver as promised…and then some.
What song is the soundtrack to your business day (or at least to how you feel right now)? Good Day Sunshine ~ The Beatles
Wine, Champagne, Beer or Cocktail? Wine with dinner, champagne because I love the bubbles, beer with Mexican food, and cocktails with friends. Why choose just one??
What is your favorite flower? People ask me that all the time. If I can only choose one, it’s columbine.
Do you regularly blog? What’s your blog site? I blog 2-4 times per month at ambiencefloral.com/blog.html

Where is your favorite place to travel? Any beach or ocean
If you weren’t in the wedding industry, what would you be doing? I would love to study marine biology.
What three things are you most grateful for in life? My precious son, my precious family and my precious friends.

If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element would be most important to you? The guest list.
What is the best advice you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Don’t worry about what anyone else wants you to do. This is your day. Do it your way and enjoy every minute.
Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s brides? Set a date several days or a week before your wedding to be DONE with the busy work and planning. Be relaxed and take the time to enjoy your wedding week and wedding day.
