How do you go from broadcast production to floral design science overnight? Very happily. Truth be told, that transition doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen easily. It happens by sheer will, incomparably hard work, and a passion to do what you love. Minus a few details, this is Amy’s story. After thirteen long, demanding, but generally fun years as a broadcast producer, she wondered if maybe it was time for something new. She thought, if not now, when? She decided, it was as good a time as any for a complete change of path. So without ever looking back, she took the leap, and in the spring of 2011 Bourgeon, a Brooklyn-based floral design studio specializing in custom arrangements and styling for weddings and special events, was born.
Was she scared? Yes. Did she ever doubt her abilities? Of course. Does she still sometimes stop to think that what she’s doing is crazy? Absolutely. But then she gets a referral. And their upcoming event sounds incredible. And Amy’s vision for it sounds exactly like what they’ve been dreaming of. The day arrives and every detail is unforgettable. And that’s what makes it all make perfect sense, and what makes it impossible for her to ever consider doing anything else.
Amy has her previous career to thank for her discerning eye and exacting standards. Arranging flowers isn’t just a hobby. It’s a business, one she takes very seriously. And, because it requires being detail-oriented, fluid, resourceful, and a gift for distilling individual client needs, she’s a natural. Drop a line. Book her for your next event. Find out for yourself.
And, by all means, if you’re considering a change of direction in your own life that requires a leap of faith, she encourages you to take it.
