Looking for a Dallas Floral Designer that has an organic floral design style with lots of texture? Look no further than Vella Nest Floral. I recently had the opportunity to catch up with the owner and lead floral designer, Alexandra Turner (aka ‘Alex’), to ask her a few questions about herself, about Vella Nest Floral and what makes her company special.

How did you get into Floral Design?
Well, I think it was destiny. I had planned and decorated a few events for family members and friends and everyone was always complimenting me on my flowers and style. And then I started getting more referrals from previous events. That is when I decided to get the proper training in floral design.
How would you describe your Floral Design aesthetic?
My designs often have texture and a natural look. I like how my arrangements and installations look as if they were growing right up from the ground, walls, and vases.

What tips or advice can you give to couples who are in the midst of planning?
My best advice would be to hire a wedding coordinator to help them to set a wedding budget and style. Start planning the wedding at least 12 months in advance. It really helps to keep the stress levels down. Make a to- do list and choose the most important things first. Venue, photographer, DJ and florist since these wedding vendors typically book between 9 – 12 months in advance.
