Hello, my name is Christa Kelley. I grew up in Haverhill MA and have lived and worked all over the Boston and North Shore areas! I went to school to study psychology and have a Masters of Ed. I love working with people and my small business allows me to do the two things I love most, work with people and flowers! Back in undergrad in 09’ I worked for a female owned business. My love of plants and flowers started there and I have never looked back!
Fast forward 11 years and my love of plants and flowers is still growing! Back in 2015 I decided to establish Kelley’s Floral Designs. I worked in two flower shops and met the most amazing women who helped me learn so much! I love having my own local community and I’m trying to widen my community both virtually and beyond the North Shore. The women I have met over the years are women who to this day I can call, bounce ideas off of and help me with weddings and events.
Kelley’s Floral Designs specializes in mostly weddings but we also do arrangements for small intimate events i.e. bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties etc. prom, bereavement, corporate events and weekly/bi-weekly delivery and floral design workshops.
I remember before I established Kelley’s Floral Designs I would do a bouquet here and there, I then realized why can’t I work with flowers and people. I think my background in psychology allows me to be a patient, calm person especially when working with my most popular clients brides. Planning a wedding can be tiring, intimidating, stressful and most often brides feel overwhelmed with lots of questions.
That’s where Kelley’s Floral Design and this wedding community can help you to relieve some stress; while also allowing you to connect with local wedding vendors who we’ve worked with over the years. It was so nice to share my story and how I got started in the wedding industry, I would love to hear from all of you!
