Stephanie’s passion for floral design blossomed at a young age while working in her family’s flower shop. Upon graduation, with her love for flowers intact, she headed to Southern California where she joined the design team at a high-end studio – Chris Lindsay Designs (CLD). At CLD, Stephanie spent her time designing weddings and charity events for The Ritz Carlton – Laguna Niguel, The Four Seasons Hotel – Newport Beach, and many of the area’s other distinguished clientele.

In 1990, Stephanie married her husband Paul and the two returned to Houston where she continued her career working for some of the best local design studios including The Empty Vase, In Bloom Inc., and Blanton-Niday Floral Designs.

Her creativity and unique style have been recognized by industry leaders including being named a “Top Ten Designer” by the CSFA, being awarded “The Houston Cup” by the Allied Florists of Houston, and a runner up in The Texas Cup competition.

Stephanie and Paul relocated to Austin 1996 when she founded Bouquets of Austin. What began as a small, home-based business has grown into a bustling design studio working with hundreds of brides and almost all of Austin’s top wedding and event venues.
