Get to Know a Wedding Florist: Stacy K FloralPhoto Credit: Tammy Swales Photography

Today’s wedding florist interview is with Stacy K Ercan of Stacy K Floral, based in Rochester, NY! Enjoy:

Tell us about yourself and your company.

I was very lucky to stumble upon this career early on thanks to a career placement exam and LOVE what I get to do every day. I love design, color, being a bit different than the traditional florist.  I obtained a business admin degree with a focus in marketing and this allowed me to see the fun of design used in all elements of business. I love logos, and stationary, and textures, and fonts, as well as all things floral and décor. When I decided to branch out into a retail store and not focus primarily on weddings I wanted to bring something fresh and new to the table……our industry is changing so much and I wanted to grasp the change by using social media, and consistently work on getting works published, blog, and understanding the importance of the internet in today’s business as a florist.  Stacy K Floral began as a wedding and event florist only and then in 2010 we expanded into a specialty boutique and daily floral delivery studio as well.  Weddings are still our favorite but now we have some much more stuff to play with and ideas to include in our work by having an inventory to pull from.
