LORI TRAN — Floral Designer, Wild Green Yonder
Lori Tran is a designer in Virginia. She loves the seasonality of flowers and how that keeps floral design work interesting. If Lori could give her younger self business advice, she’d tell her to hire help sooner, learn to delegate, and not to take yourself too seriously. The most meaningful lesson she’s learned in working with flowers? “Accept that nature is the boss.” Since working with natural elements rarely goes exactly as planned, being able to pivot easily is important. She loves the Team Flower Community because she’s able to book talented freelance designers that have enabled her to take on bigger jobs.

BIANCA ROSEN — Flower Artist
Bianca Rosen is a floral artist based in Montreal, Canada; her favorite clients are those who want wedding bouquets painted. What’s one thing she’d like other floral pros to know? “The beginning is always the hardest.” Work hard, and the benefits of hard work will pay off. While she’s most proud of being able to sell custom paintings, she’s honored when she gets to meet someone who “gets” her unique style. Bianca loves being able to do what she loves every day by creating original botanical artwork, and she joined the Team Flower Community because of the shared passion of the members: flowers!

LAUREN WIEBE — Floral Designer, Stone House Creative
Lauren Wiebe is a floral designer based in Manitoba, Canada, who entered the floral industry already having a background in weddings—she loves being a part of a couple’s wedding day and helping to make it special. As far as her business goes, she’s most proud of “the growth I’ve been able to achieve year over year.” Go Lauren! What business advice would she give to her younger self? Don’t be afraid to tell people about your business, while no one likes a bragger, it’s okay to promote your work. Lauren loves being a part of the Team Flower Community because it supports people in all streams of the floral industry and at all experience levels.

MAHER HAROUN — Floral Designer, Flowers by Maher Haroun
Maher is a floral designer based in California who loves that floristry gives him a way to utilize everything he loves about design, all while being able to foster meaningful relationships with clients and peers. If Maher could give business advice to his younger self, it would be to not worry so much and focus on being true to his brand. He sees working with flowers as a team effort, and he appreciates that the Team Flower Community allows for a space for peer-to-peer education: “The amount of time, energy, and money that can be saved just by having a simple conversation with your peers is life-changing.”

About her role in the floral industry, she says “I never take myself too seriously. I am just very happily creating beauty in my little corner of the world.” Kathleen loves growing flowers and the fact that no two seasons are the same.

ADRIENNE ROLON — Wedding Planner and Floral Designer, Hearts Content Events
Adrienne Rolon is a wedding planner and floral designer based in Chesapeake, Virginia. She loves how working with flowers fuels her creative fire, and she loves to celebrate weddings! Giving the bouquet to the bride on her wedding day is her favorite part. As far as business advice goes, Adrienne would say change is essential to growth. The most meaningful lesson Adrienne’s learned through flowers? Plan ahead! There are so many moving parts, and sometimes you have to be flexible and “move and shake” if you need to. She’s most proud of finding joy in the process of owning and running her own business, and she loves the sense of community Team Flower provides—so many other floral pros are willing to share their knowledge and assist one another with “smarts and heart,” as she likes to put it!
