Though Botany Floral Studio owner Rachelle Soucy holds a BFA degree in studio art and has designed for flower shops throughout Canada, her passion for blooms stretches back much further. As a child, Soucy accompanied her grandmother to her garden, where she witnessed the cycles of the seasons and the various flowers, vegetables, and plants they brought with them.
At Botany Floral Studio, Soucy’s nostalgia for her formative years tangibly permeates the space. Locally grown blooms, succulents, orchids, flowering branches, and berries mingle with the wistful dreaminess of the studio, beckoning visitors to linger by inimitably arranged displays to see if a peony will whisper them a story from their childhood. In addition to perusing the aromatic bouquets, visitors can enroll in arrangement workshops and enlist the services of Soucy and her staff, who lovingly tailor designs for events such as weddings and Valentine’s Day.
