Hi there! My name is Gabrielle (my friends call me Gabe!), I'm the dreamer + creator behind James Floral Co. Here is a little bit of background about myself and how I got started!
I earned my Bachelor of Art's degree at San Diego State University with an emphasis in interior design. Upon graduation, I began working at an award-winning interior design firm in San Diego, CA. While pursuing my passion for interiors, I began to study and create with flowers as a hobby. Over the years my love of floristry has blossomed into my floral design company, James Floral Co.
I have a keen eye for combining color and textures and view every arrangement as a work of art. My lush, organic style of arranging mimics the simplicity and beauty of nature. My arrangements are thoughtfully constructed and personalized to each event and client. I truly believe flowers make special occasions even more momentous; elegantly casting joy and inspiration with their undeniable beauty.
I design for weddings and events in the San Diego area and throughout Southern California. I mainly work out of my little home studio in San Diego. Once in awhile I get the pleasure of doing pop-up shops outside of cute boutiques and coffee shops selling my bouquets and florals along with my macrame.
Recently, I have started volunteering and donating leftover florals to GenerateHope, a safe house in San Diego for women who have previously been sex trafficked. Every client has the option to donate their leftover florals from their event to the women and organization. I am passionate about spreading awareness and fighting for the lives of these women and I love that I get to do so through another passion of mine, flowers. For more information please see the Flowers For Hope page.
Enough about me, I would love to get to know you! Please reach out and consider James Floral Co for your next event and wedding! I would love the opportunity to dream + create the florals for your next event or styled shoot!
