Alyssa is a floral designer and herbal enthusiast. She is currently employed at Falls Flowers in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia. Alyssa insists that she will never love Philadelphia as much as her childhood home outside of Pittsburgh, but stranger things have happened.
As a designer at Falls Flowers, Alyssa guides brides through client intake and the floral design elements associated with their wedding needs. She loves working with clients who are interested in foliage, ceramic vessels, and dried and dead plant material. Her favorite flowers are blue ones and brown ones.
Locally grown floral product has a large part of Alyssa's heart, as well as the flower farmers who grow the product themselves. In Alyssa's mind, the magic that comes with local flowers includes the missing petals, bug-eaten leaves, and thorns. Without the rain and the wind, and the insect relationships in the garden, we would not have the flowers at all.
Alyssa is also an avid tarot reader and novice herbalist. Her two favorite herbs are lemon balm and rosemary.
