Oak & Amble

Southern California Floral Design

Hey, I'm Erin! Just a laid back girl originally from Northern Michigan. I'm the one woman show behind Oak and Amble. Floral design is truly a form of art; a form of art that I have taken the last 10+ years to master. I am continually learning, experimenting, evolving my design skills with some of the best in the industry.

My style is lush, natural and romantic. I like to take cues from nature when designing and excel at utilising colour theory when selecting blooms. By drawing out subtle hues in the veins of leaves starting to change with the seasons or even reflexing petals to show how a flower variegates from one shade to the next can help expand and elevate a simple colour palette to one with depth and dimension.

I married my college sweetheart, Geoff, and together with our dog Lucy, two cats Moe and Dexter and our tornado/dinosaur hybrid toddler Logan, we travel all of the United States with the Navy, transporting my business where ever we go and leaving an acorn of myself where ever we've been.

Interview

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… traveling to Paris and the UK for my twin sisters wedding in Scotland! I don’t get to travel much (besides moving with the Navy) so we made the most of it for her destination wedding!

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… It rotates between Italy, Australia and New Zealand.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… I love working with flowers, the stress, the beauty and the ability to be able to create something so wonderful with my hands.  As a bonus, I can do it at home with my kiddo, slowly infusing my love of flowers and nature into him as he grows.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… there is absolutely nothing I would love to do more than floral design!

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… do what you want for you wedding and don’t let family expectations pressure you into a wedding that isn’t ‘you’.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… a dog named Lucy, and two fat cats named Moe and Dexter.
