Karl R Eckel, Delford West Flowers {Creative Partner Spotlight}

Floral arrangements can make an event space come to life with the right florist. Lucky for you, we got to interview the very talented owner of Delford West Flowers, Karl R. Eckel!

He’s got an extraordinary eye for design, but we’ll let him tell you more about himself!

Tell us a bit about your professional background. What brought you to the event industry?

I was brought into the event industry on a recommendation from my uncle, a friend needed a part time driver for a flower shop. It was during high school and I was in the work study program and was able to attain credits with a part time job. After working there for two years, I wanted to own my own business and decided on a flower shop.

What do you love about your job?

I love my job because it is always changing and evolving, from the business aspect as well as the clients. I knew that I was not a person to work in an office with set hours. Even though we sell wedding flowers, I feel we are helping people fulfill the dreams of their perfect wedding, no matter how big or small.

If you could share one wedding planning tip with an engaged couple, what would you tell them?

The best tip I can give to engaged couples is to have the wedding they want; the only people they should please are themselves.

Who doesn’t want the best of the best bringing their space to life?! If you’re looking for a fantastic florist in Livermore, Delford West Flowers can hook you up. Check out their floral eye candy at @delfordwestflowers while you’re at it!
