This is a part of our Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area. Today, we’re introducing you to Karl Eckel from Delford West Flowers
We are a floral company specializing in weddings and events. We offer all aspects of floral needs and some rental items pertaining to floral arrangements.
We asked Karl to tell us about what inspired him to pursue a career in weddings and how he got started in the industry.
I always wanted to own my own business and was introduced to the floral business at the age of 16. After a year of employment in the field, I decided to go to college for a degree in Floriculture. Two years after graduation, I started a retail floral business. That was 31 years ago.
Karl also shared what his favorite part about being in weddings is.
I like to work with clients and help them fulfill their floral needs for the most, or one of the most memorable days in their lives.
Karl is also sharing the one piece of advice he likes to give couples planning their wedding.
Enjoy the experience together and make the choices that you would like to have, and not worry about pleasing others.
