Meet Emma Owner, Lead Designer She/her

Emma Lea Floral - Kim Mitiska Photography


 

 

Born and raised in Colorado, I love the outdoors. You can usually find me taking care of my garden, dancing in the kitchen while I try out a new recipe, or loving on my dog, Luna and cat, Cleo.

My husband Patrick and I live in Golden, Colorado where I work from my sweet little garage studio. 

I began my design career on a whim after graduating with an Art History degree from CU Boulder. Fate had me on a path towards art and entrepreneurship and it began with the mentorship of a talented and deeply generous woman, Buffy Haramaki. She gave me my foundation and opened me up to this world of flowers.  

Emma Lea Floral was born in 2015 as a leap of faith and I have been nurturing and shaping this business ever since. Nothing gives me more satisfaction then helping people see their visions come to life through flowers. Connecting with my clients and learning about what is meaningful to them is what makes the process of designing for events truly special. Flowers are able to communicate in a way that words simply can't and it is a language that I love!

Emma is absolutely incredible! I’ve dreamt about the flowers on my wedding day my whole life, and Emma absolutely exceeded my expectations! She was such a joy to work with throughout the entire planning process, so approachable and accommodating, and on the day of, I couldn’t have been happier with her work. You can tell Emma (and her team) put so much love, creativity and attention to detail into every floral design and that really comes through in the final product.

Bouquet in shades of ivory, blush, pink, and burgundy, with peonies, garden roses,scabiosa, lysimachia, and foliage.

Emma is seriously the best. She is not only an extremely talented florist, but a kind, genuine, and sweet human. She made my wedding beautiful beyond my imagination. Trust her - she will do great work and go above and beyond to make your day perfect. If I could give her 1000/5 stars I would. I'm recommending her to everyone I know! I really cannot say enough about how great she is!

Emma is wonderful! I cannot say enough great things about working with her. I was a bride who had very little direction with where I wanted to go with our florals, and she made the process so easy and fun! She met with me several times throughout the process, showed me idea boards, and was able to take my small ideas and turn them into magnificent pieces. All of my guests praised the work she did... On top of all that, all the pieces photographed wonderfully!

Bride and Groom on their wedding day at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge Colorado. Bride holding a bouquet of dalias, garden roses, ranunculus, and foliage, wth trailing ribbons. The bouquet is in shades of blush, peach, red, and coral.


From the very moment I saw her work I knew she would do an amazing job- everything she does is so unbelievably stunning. She was so great to work with throughout the whole process too; she was thoughtful, creative, and definitely went above and beyond to see that our wedding was everything we dreamed of and so much more! I just can't recommend her enough and am so thankful we got to work with her!!

Emma provided only the most beautiful work for our wedding. She was simply a dream to work with! I provided very basic requests and direction, and she was able to bring everything together and really blow us away with the final product. Everything from the bouquets to the flowers for my hair was simply perfect. I would highly recommend Emma to anyone looking for flowers for a special event!!! I should also mention that the system she uses for booking/payments/ideas is great - it is very easy to make payments and track old conversations.

Bride and Groom in a field at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur Colorado on their wedding day. Bride is holding a bouquet of eucalyptus, garden roses, ranunculus, chocolate lace, and astrantia, in Emma Lea Floral's signature lush and textural style. Bouquet in shaes of white, blush, mauve, and burgundy.

Emma knocked it out of the park for my September wedding. We met a couple times prior to the event and she totally grasped my style and vision even though I had NO idea how to express it. She goes above and beyond and is so incredibly talented. Even my husband (who could honestly care less about flowers/decor) was blown away by her and how beautiful she made our venue look. Do not hesitate if you're considering Emma, she's a gem!!
