I was never one to fit in. Even the "out-of-the-box" creative types saw me as a bit unruly. A wild one, I suppose.

So, seven years ago, I took my untamed creative spirit and launched The Wild Dahlia. Since then, I've had a baby, gotten married and bought a 200 year old home (that's rumored to be haunted) as a retail spot for The Wild Dahlia - it's been a sometimes loud and always unpretentious adventure.

I have a collection of flannel shirts (the more worn, the better) and a passion for traveling to far off places (please, take us away to lands unknown for your wedding celebration. We want to dig our toes into un-chartered territory and blaze flower trails across the world.)

I also have a slight obsession with Led Zeppelin. You, too?

A bit un-ruly. A touch unexpected.

Yep! that's me -
At my wedding.
It was an amazing day.

Imagine everything you love coming together in one place  - take me back!

A Dahlia’s season is short-lived,
and it’s a rather unruly bloom.

The Wild Dahlia is a floral studio driven to make a lasting imprint upon the heart and mind through flowers.

our philosophy

"I'd been admiring Shawna's work since before I was even engaged. I didn't bother to meet with any other florists because I just knew from the photos I had seen of her work that we wanted her to be our wedding florist.

Shawna is truly an artist and takes your vision and turns it into something dreamy and magical. I always felt like she understood exactly the look I was after. The bouquets, the flower girl's flower crown, the table arrangements, and my god - the arbor!!! It took my breath away. I would recommend Shawna to anyone. She is absolutely the best in the business. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making our day so gorgeous."

“Shawna is absolutely the best in the business.”

"Shawna is an absolute Rockstar. I booked her because a friend told me “if you use one vendor of mine, she should be it."

She is an expert and a true floral artist. In every meeting and phone call I knew that she understood the vision for our wedding and that she would use her creativity to execute it perfectly.  When I walked into our venue on our wedding day I was speechless – even better than I had imagined. I am somewhat of a perfectionist and Shawna’s attention to detail completely exceeded expectations. I could not recommend Shawna and her team more highly, if you use one vendor of mine, she should be it."

"The Wild Dahlia will 100% make all your floral dreams come true. Shawna and her team are some amazing, talented bad a** women and you will be thrilled with what she is able to produce for your wedding day.

As a wedding planner, it is so important for me to partner with vendors that I know care deeply about their craft and will always execute flawlessly and that is Shawna. Hire her if you want show-stopping florals that will bring your whole wedding vision together!"
