Maria Lang, A little bit about me
I guess you can say my love of arranging flowers was inspired by one woman, my do-it-yourself grandmother. The constant doer, as a child each day we would busy ourselves by making-- sewing, baking, playing music, crotcheting and my favorite, arranging flowers together. Our supplies came from what we could gather up, find at the local discount store or take from her garden. We could make anything and always something beautiful with very little. This is the woman who made all of her daughter's bridal and bridesmaids gowns, planned their weddings, arranged their wedding flowers, set up their reception, led all the cooking all with enough time to dress and decorate herself to the nines for the wedding. It is no wonder that I find myself following in her multi-tasking footsteps (except for the cooking part although I do bake!).
I love creating with flowers and looking for design inspirations in the abundance of North Bay nature, art, travel, just about anywhere and everywhere. With a degree in art history, formal flower studies with CCSF and renowned designers, and a passion for design, I draw from many moods and experiences when designing my work. I find myself a lucky one after spending a fair amount of time in the corporate world. It is in working with flowers and occasions that I find the greatest purpose and pleasure.
Wildflower is my creative floral space. Our studio is located in the forested North Bay of San Francisco surrounded by a little country, redwoods, and wildflowers.
Wildflower collaborates with talented, creative, and energetic designers on all of our events. Our designers are passionate flower lovers, rainmakers and some are also flower business owners with a dedication to the craft of flowers. It is because of our combined talents that Wildflower is able to design, create and execute the most beautiful, jewel-like flowers for your celebration.
