I'm Meghan Awalt — a wedding florist based in Shreveport, Louisiana. I would describe my design style as "edgy-lush-ethereal" with a modern, unique vibe (and lots and lots of texture!) For as long as I can remember, I loved escaping to the woods behind my home. I felt grounded and safe hearing the leaves crunch and smelling the earth under my feet. There were wild-flowers that smelled like Big Red chewing gum and a canopy of branches overhead to cover and protect me. Now that I’m a floral designer, I still run to the woods — foraging for a lichen covered branch, unique foliage texture, or sometimes even a forgotten insect hive to bring a touch of wilderness to my work.
I'm married to the funniest person I know — David — who also happens to be an incredibly talented writer. We’ve adopted two rescue pups, Lilly — a cockapoo, and Rascal — a smorgasbord or border collie, aussie and who knows what else. We call Shreveport home, but we love traveling together — our most recent vacay was to Banff National Park in Alberta Canada.
I truly believe I’ve found my life’s work in flowers. I’m honored that my hands get to create living works of art that will forever be a part of someone else’s love story.
I'm currently booking dates for 2020 — with limited availability still left for fall 2019. I'm also available for freelance floral design just about anywhere! Click here to get in touch with me!
