Meet our Founder
A native of South Florida, Valerie’s passion for flowers & events began 20 years ago when she embarked on her introduction to the floral industry. She began attending a weekly floral class in Margate, FL with a well-known florist by the name of Manny. It was through the lens of this class that she realized she has a natural talent for floral & event design. With this passion and natural gift for creativity, Petals of Love Florist was born. She started this business in 1998 targeting the Palm Beach market for floral design. She’s known for being a natural talent with a “keen eye for detail”. Her designs are bold, distinctive, whimsical, and extremely creative. She has the ability to fuse beautiful textures, colors, props, and styles that align with her client’s vision for their special event. Fast forward to a new era where event design is enriched with various layers, Valerie has rebranded Petals of Love and formed Whimsical Event Studio, LLC, a luxe Wedding & Event Planning Service and Floral Design Studio. Leveraging over 20 years of creative decorating experience, Valerie is the Owner, CEO & Creative Director of this Full-Service Design Studio with a mission to provide a Luxe Experience for her clients.
I’m a hopeless romantic who enjoys the beauty of love. I absolutely love flowers and decorating. With over 5 years of experience in corporate event planning and 20 years in floral and creative design, I am blessed to be gifted with natural creative talent and the ability to fuse personalities with aesthetic. I have worked in the Human Resources Management field in a senior-level capacity with over 17 years of experience in managing, coaching, and developing people. So, getting to know people and understanding what makes them thrive is my “happy place”. I love to travel and experience new cultures and people. I have traveled all over the world with London and Paris being my favorite! I’m inspired by love, kindness, self-love, empowering others, family, and all things pink and pastels. When I’m not planning & styling an event, I enjoy crafting personally as a hobby, spending time at the beach to reflect on life, spending time with family, and watching HGTV or Lifetime.
