Alanna is a dear friend of mine I met through the Wedding Industry three years ago. Just a short time after that, she started her own floral company “Alanna Jae Floral”. Alanna is much more than a florist, but a Freelance Floral Designer. Alanna Jae Floral is based in Des Moines, but services the King County, Snohomish County and for the right couple Skagit County regions. Her eye for an airy greenery floral design is breathtaking! I was lucky enough to chat further about her company.
How did you come up with your business name?
It’s my name! My work is a reflection of my taste and style. Nothing else represents my work and business better than my name. (Whitley make this sound less self-centered hahaha)
What kind of packages do you provide? What are their price ranges?
Prices vary on the style and needs that my Clients desire! I provide an a la carte service where Brides can request certain arrangements. Majority of my work are complete event designs which included everything from Bridal Party bouquets, Centerpieces, Photo Booth Greenery and extravagant Ceremony Arch arrangements!
What is a wedding trend that you love and hope sticks around?
Greenery garlands have made a comeback and I hope never go out of style! It’s almost become a signature arrangement of mine. I’d say 90% of the weddings I’ve done I made at least one garland!
How would you describe your brand in three words?
Romantic, Garden, Classic
What is your “Why” behind your business?
PASSION. It drove me to leave an a steady job and pursue it full time!
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I hate to say I’m a homebody but… when I’m not designing I’m learning a new piano piece or enjoying time with my dogs, Chloe and Tinkerbell. That or I’m shopping!
