Meet Rachael



Hi! I’m Rachael, a Pinterest loving crafter, fun mom and creative designer that cares about YOUR need for flowers. 

Whatever big life event led you to this site, be it a baby shower, retirement party or wedding, my personal goal is to accentuate your event by making it even more special with the perfect flowers. 

I once had a bride reach out to me whose opening statement was, “Flowers are the last thing we have to take care of because they aren’t that important to us.” After choking on my coffee I realized I NEEDED to take on this wedding; I made it a personal mission to enlighten her, to convert her into a flower-loving bride. (Mission accomplished, by the way.) 

I had been working in various flower shops for nearly 15 years, building my talent and expanding my knowledge of flowers when the opportunity to take over Black Iris Floral Designs literally fell in my lap. 

Black Iris was already a well established, proudly inclusive, successful small business. What set Black Iris apart was, and still is, our focus on weddings and specialty events. Black Iris is a design studio only, no storefront, that only commits to one event per weekend, assuring clients undivided attention on their big day. (“Oh! It’s the morning of your wedding and you just now realized you never ordered flowers for your MIL? I got you.”) How could I, who cares so much about my client’s event, say no to that!? 

I took over as Owner and Creative Floral Director of Black Iris Floral Designs in early 2017 and am loving it. I am involved with your event every step of the way. Your free consultation will take place with me. I will order your flowers, go to the market to personally inspect the quality, arrange your flowers, and finally deliver and set up your event. It is a personalized experience from beginning to end.


Congratulations on whatever event led you to our site! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and shoot me an email so that we can discuss your visions for your big day.


The Process

Many times, clients come to us not knowing where to begin. They know their vision and oftentimes, that is it.


Here's the step-by-step process each client goes through with Black Iris.

Contact Us

Send us an email or fill out the Contact Form.


We will respond by phone or email to set up a complimentary consultation.

Let's Meet

During your consultation, we will go over all the details that make your wedding special!  Bring design inspirations such as pictures of your dress, color swatches, etc!

Review & Book

We'll send you a proposal of what we have discussed. After it is reviewed, all you have to do is sign it and send your deposit to make it official!


On your wedding day, we will arrive on-site early and prepared to create floral magic! We'll have all installations up, bouquets in hand, centerpieces in place, and boutonnieres pinned.

"Thank you SO much!!! All of the flowers were beautiful and I am so happy with every single detail, especially the bouquets...they were amazing! I can't tell you how many times I heard 'those are the most beautiful bouquets I've ever seen!'

I can't thank you enough for all of your help and suggestions and how you pulled everything together perfectly! You made this part of wedding planning so easy for me and I really enjoyed working with you!"
