About Portland Wedding Florist ~ Flowers by Alana
Hi I’m Alana, your friendly Portland wedding florist! Flowers and gorgeous floral design are my passion and I’m proud to say I’ve been in the floral industry for 20 years! My floral career started in the floral department of natural food grocery stores Nature’s, Zupan’s, and Whole Foods. I studied at the Floral Design Institute in Portland after falling in love with floral design and wanting to focus on weddings and special events! I designed for several high-end floral shops before launching my own wedding floral company, Flowers by Alana.
Although my natural floral design style leans toward romantic and organic, with large bouquets lush with greenery, lots of soft petal-y goodness like garden roses and peonies, and incorporating interesting textures, colors, and shapes, my floral skills are versatile and I can design in any floral style. It’s an honor and absolutely pleasure to work together with my couples, bringing their wedding vision to life with gorgeous wedding flowers!
Environmental sustainability and equality is at the core of our company’s mission. Flowers by Alana strives to support local farms and seeks organic and ecologically friendly flowers as much as we can. We also strive to find environmentally friendly design methods that minimize petrochemicals and waste. Flowers by Alana is also committed to standing for love in all forms with absolutely no judgement or prejudice. I celebrate, embrace and am honored to provide wedding flowers for all types of marriages, including interracial and same-sex weddings. Love is love.
I live in Portland with my two children and my sweet kitty. When not growing my wedding business or playing with flowers, I enjoy many outdoor activities the beautiful Pacific Northwest offers, like hiking, camping, and kayaking. I love to cook healthy meals with fresh organic, locally raised ingredients, and absolutely love supporting other local small businesses. I have an amazing curated list of my favorite Portland wedding professional vendors I love to work with and recommend!
Can’t wait to meet you and your fiance and learn about your wedding! Let’s bring your wedding vision to life with gorgeous flowers!
