The story of our company is quite simple, just like our philosophy. Its a story of passion, devotion, art and family.
They say when one door closes another opens, it happen to me in 2012 and that is when OUDALOVA Events & Design was born. My mother had just retired from over 25 years in the floral business, and handed me the knowledge, desire and skills needed to pursue my dream of having my own design business. I remember standing in her beautiful store saying, " you know mom, I know roses are all that but I really just can't see why they are so special, they are so regular".
I remember thinking about how to make the window display stand out every season.
I remember talking to brides and walking them through how it would feel like seeing their venue for the first time all decorated with the fresh flowers and unique design elements. Creating a magical ambiance with candles, beautiful linens and napkins, helping them visualize the absolute ultimate dining and celebration experience.
Well, I thank my mom everyday for subconsciously leading me on this path, teaching me about flowers, design aesthetic, beauty and passion. In retrospect, I love roses now, they are by no means regular, but rather extraordinary, thorns and all.
As the years passed, we crafted our floral art and design passion into an Event Design and Production Company that specializes in creating and executing events that are personal, visually enticing and sure to be remembered.
The OUDALOVA Events & Design team approaches every project with gusto and passion. We crave beauty and impact, no matter how loud or subtle that impact is. Our clients vision will be of utmost importance, where their ideas and desires be seamlessly executed and designed specifically for their special day.
