Owner Bryce Loutsch has floral design in his blood—his first job was working at his parents’ floral shop! This Wine Country local opened Vanda Floral Design in 2003 to offer unique, high-quality, yet affordable flowers to the county in which he grew up.
Vanda is a full service floral design shop specializing in European, tropical and contemporary design. They work with both organic, locally grown flowers as well as imported, exotic flowers from around the world.
Due to my extensive professional experience: Throughout my fifteen years working in the floral industry, I've provided flowers for over 600 weddings. On a personal level, I can relate to many of the clients I meet with—I'm recently married and understand the stress that modern couples go through when planning their wedding.
Lush, imaginative, elegant.
I spent my summers home from college working in my parents' flower shop. Through my years working there, I developed an appreciation for the floral industry, and developed my skills as a designer.
Creative, smart, affable.
I love cooking and gardening. I've been cooking my entire life (my mother was a caterer when I was a child), and recently have become a huge proponent of the slow food movement. I try to buy all of my foods from local, organic sources, and make everything from scratch. I also carry this philosophy into my business, and support many local, sustainable flower growers and suppliers.
Have fun, don't sweat the small stuff, and find trustworthy vendors to carry out your vision. Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming process, and getting too focused on details can cause undue stress. I find that if a bride can adequately explain her vision (be it menu direction, floral décor, musical style, etc.) to her vendors, and give them the leeway to be creative, she will end up being much happier and relaxed on the day of her wedding.
