PHILOSOPHY

Our aesthetic is inspired by the unique beauty that each season holds. We source local flowers and botanicals to create designs rooted in a specific time and place. Heirloom and fragrant flowers, old fashioned garden roses, trailing and swirling vines, beautiful foliage, interesting seed pods and berries, branches laden with fruit... these are a few of our favorite ingredients. Nature breathes with elegance and abundance, and we seek to accentuate these qualities in every piece we create.

 

We maintain a Cutting Garden stocked with our favorite blooms, as well as those that are too delicate to transport, or are not available for purchase elsewhere. We grow these flowers exclusively for our clients so that we always have something exquisite to weave into our designs. We also work closely with Northwest flower growers committed to the highest standards of quality and environmental stewardship. By sourcing local blooms, cultivated with care and skill by farmers we actually know personally,  our clients receive the freshest, most beautiful flowers available, while also supporting local, small-scale agriculture.

KELLY SULLIVAN, OWNER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Kelly Sullivan (she/her) is the owner and Lead Designer of Botanique. She founded the company in 2012 after a successful career as a dancer and choreographer. Drawing from this history, her designs are infused with an intuitive understanding of movement, line, and gesture. 

 

As part of the transition from dance to floral design, Kelly studied horticulture and landscape design, and worked as a gardener in private residences. This is where her passion for arranging flowers took hold, as she would frequently create floral designs using the materials culled from a garden while maintaining it: whatever needed pruning, whatever blew down in the wind or rain... these elements were the inspiration and materials for Kelly's early work. Working as a gardener, Kelly quickly realized her passion for flowers and began learning how to grow them- first in the yard of a rental property, and now in the Botanique Cutting Garden, an urban cutting garden just steps outside the Botanique Studio. Seasonality and sustainability have been important precepts of Kelly's work from the beginning, and lie at the heart of her design philosophy.

In addition to growing and designing flowers, Kelly's interests include hiking, sitting by rivers and spending time in nature, honing her intuition, listening deeply and connecting with people, and loving her husband, son, family and community. 

 

Her work has been featured in print and online publications including The New York Times, Style Me Pretty, Ruffled Blog, Once Wed, Magnolia Rouge, Seattle Magazine, GREY Magazine, Seattle Bride Magazine, Seattle Met Bride and Groom,  Green Wedding Shoes, and Elizabeth Anne Designs.

Botanique is a full-service florist designing wedding flowers in Seattle, Washington. We create bouquets, centerpieces, arrangements and floral installations with an elegant, seasonal and organic aesthetic, and offer classes and workshops focused on sustainable design techniques.
