Meet The Florists
Owner, Head Designer
I got my start in the floral industy in August 2010 at FloraLaura, where I spent the next 7 years learning under Laura Straight. During that time she took me under her wing and taught me all aspects of the industry. I spent my last three years there as the lead floral designer and in March 2018 I purchased FloraLaura and turned it into Shady Vines Floral Co.
After one year and some change in July 2019 I decided to close my storefront and move to a closed studio in Burien so I could focus on my favorite aspect of the floral industry, Wedding and events! While it is not always easy, I am so lucky to have the opportunity to do something I am truly passionate about. I welcome people of all races, ethnicities, sexuality, and genders. I am also so honored and privileged to be a part of the small percentage of latinas in the floral industry.
Tuca Salamanca Calavera Rivera-Fobes
Tuco is our resident shop dog. He was found in blackberry bushes before a storm in January 2019 when he was a puppy. He went on to graduate puppy Kindergarten despite being deaf (which we figured out after he graduated). After learning some basic sign language, he is a model employee because he never tries to pick up anything poisonous to dogs.
