Autumn Marcelle is a Santa Cruz, CA based wedding and event floral designer servicing Los Gatos, Santa Cruz Coastal Communities, and Carmel Valley.

It's so lovely to meet you! I am Autumn, the woman behind the flowers.  As a seasoned floral designer, my emphasis on romantic, garden-inspired designs and large floral installations are the cornerstones of designing your wedding and the visual experience I provide. I don't believe in simply finding a few pretty pictures on Pinterest from which to base your wedding style. Creating a color story that is tasteful and meaningful to you, using floral and textural details to bring it to life is what makes our designs notoriously memorable and experiential.

About Me

We believe in creating designs that bring a classic and timeless sophistication to every gathering.

My distinct design style and strategic process has evolved over years of education and experience designing weddings and events. Deep down, what really drives my passion for floral design and specifically my signature garden style, is my love of nature and life-long passion for flowers and gardening. Nearly every day I am in my garden, caring for plants from seed to cut bloom, using them to design the freshest and most organically styled arrangements. 

Every floral design that leaves my studio is curated with an intentional and detailed eye, and I put the same amount of attention and focus into the other details of your event as well. I firmly believe your wedding should never look like anyone else's- it should be like a fingerprint, unique to you and you alone. Over the years, I have built a network of the best flower farmers, suppliers, and vendors to partner with and fulfill the vision for your event. I am proud of the time we have spent working with couples around the country to create beautiful and memorable events, and connecting over a shared love of flowers and lovely, timeless gardens.

The Intentional Use of Color

Color is an integral feature of design, and I believe it alone, is what truly captures the emotive qualities of any wedding. The romantic transitions between accents and depth that it introduces to each and every design is what will take your breath away every time. 

 I believe in

Old World Inspiration

I believe in

As a history-nut, obsessive reader, and watcher of every period piece available- much of the inspiration behind our wedding designs come from old-world, European influences: captivating gardens, lush floral designs, castles and ruins, open countryside.

What sets me apart from other designers

As an avid gardener, I am close with nature on the daily, and prioritize sustainable and environmentally-friendly options as much as possible. Reusing hard plastics and wire design mechanics, going foam-free where possible, and repurposing designs to cut down on excess waste are at the forefront of our design strategies.

Sustainability Practices

Through the years, I have collaborated both with my clients and others, to bring to life stylistic visions that range from rustic elegance to coastal couture. With a wide spectrum of creative inspiration and experience, I can integrate my signature garden style into any inspiration or thematic element. 

Dynamic Approach to Design

Much like the story that brought you to this moment- I deeply and unapologetically enjoy every part of creating an inclusive experience for my clients. I have spent years streamlining my process and services to ensure you have the absolute best experience with me and get to savor the planning and development of your vision. No needless time-wasting happening over here!
