Rock N' Roses
We discovered Heavy Petal Flowers a few months ago, and we’re blown away by the talent of this OC-based florist. The arrangements are modern but with an eclectic twist, mixing flowers and plants in incredibly beautiful arrangements.
Owners, sisters and busy moms, Anna Ziebarth and Jena Roghair, grew up in Orange County and as an outlet to their everyday chaos they design flowers. Anna and Jena fell into the business about 10 years ago—with no prior floral experience prior. Many of their friends were getting married, and on budgets so they helped out a couple with their flowers. They had so much fun working together and creating an amazing event that they took on more jobs. Now, they’re a small company working out of their garages, however their workspace doesn’t limit their abilities. They recently designed flowers at wedding on Catalina Island—a 450 person event.
Heavy Petal Flowers mainly does weddings and events, but they also work on smaller scales and budgets.714.270.7793.
