Eatherley Schultz is the owner and head of operations at Floressence. She comes from a line of women, including her mother and grandmother, who found beauty and kinship in the garden space. Eatherley grew up in Birmingham, Alabama where her early love of gardening and horticulture eventually took her to central California where she studied agroecology and farming.
As a farmer, she grew organic vegetables and cut flower and later added landscape design to her skillset, a field that would influence her work and approach at Floressence. In North Carolina, she managed a 250-acre farm property for five years, and began a small floral business on the side. After several life changes, Eatherley felt compelled to pursue her floral design business full-time.
Floressence Flowers was born in 2010, out of Eatherley’s love of plants and nature, and her desire to use them as an artistic medium. Today, Floressence has executed hundreds of weddings and special events in Western North Carolina and beyond.
Carly Robbins is head of production at Floressence and a seasoned designer with over 10 years of experience working with flowers and designing for weddings and events. She is equal parts flower ninja and artist, and has an uncanny ability to work with varied aesthetics, colors, shapes and forms.
