Shannon, a born and raised Northern California native, founded Arvo Floral Studio in 2013. For years prior, Shannon had dabbled in several other creative fields before finding her preferred artistic medium of floral design.
Entranced by how floral arrangements could transform a space or event, she sought a multifaceted approach to honing her craft as a florist. Her foundation was laid as she scrubbed buckets & made deliveries at a local shop, interned & freelanced for local designers, as well as invested in a multitude of workshops. Thus, Arvo Floral Studio was born and Shannon set out to create exquisite flowers for weddings and events.
Shannon strives to create arrangements that are loose and organic in composition. She is incredibly inspired by the seasons, whether that be golden hues as summer fades into fall, or the most prolific of sweetly scented lilac bushes in the spring. She believes that flowers should be arranged loosely, in a manner that allows each stem to be showcased - never overcrowding an arrangement and always leaving room for the flowers to breathe. Color theory places a large role in all of her designs, and she is always looking for ways to incorporate color in new, unexpected ways. Shannon leads her team of designers with a deft hand and is often described as having "high expectations".
