Hi! My name is Chelsea, owner and designer at The Wild Olive.
I love creating. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved being a creator and maker, it brought me great joy. The people who know me best will attest that I am always working on a project. Whether that is drawing, renovating my house, gardening, or building cabinets. Name a hobby and it probably has been or currently is on my to-do list.
My interest in floral design started early on in my life. My sister’s first job was at a florist and, lucky for me, her boss was happy to have me at the shop. Even though I wasn’t any help, I loved being there. To this day, I still have such fond memories of spending time at that little shop. In 2011, I started my own floral journey. I began working at a local florist and from the moment I found floral design I was hooked. In 2013, I left the shop to begin a more “serious” job but I continued to help friends and family with weddings on the side. A few months later, after missing floral design too much, I decided to begin my own floral business specifically focusing on weddings. I would pick up flowers on my lunch break, rush them home, make business calls on break, and design after work, sometimes until 2 AM. Exhausting, yes, but so rewarding.
Now, ten years later, I have officially left my nine-to-five job and I am taking a leap of faith. Working with flowers brings so much joy but the best, by far, is watching the joy flowers bring to everyone. I wish to bring that joy to you.
