Shotgun Floral Studio is a self-taught, freestyle focused floral and design house located in Berkeley, CA. Founded, owned and run by Emily Read Bentley; the daughter of a couple of intellectual artists, and a person who appreciates good etiquette, independent design skills and a strong work ethic over most anything. Emily has come to know where her passion and enthusiastic ability lay - in owning her own design business, where the final product is the work of her own two hands and her late-night, colorful-dream schemes. Her ability to manage a talented crew and work with a range of amazing design savvy clients is often unsurpassed. Emily co-founded an event planning and design company in 2010 - Enjoy Events Co. - and from there, after providing flowers to their established accounts and clients, branched off into her dream job in the floral design world; which, one can say, has kept her creative spirit alive and well.
At Shotgun Floral Studio, we take our design jobs as serious as our morning cup of coffee. Which is as serious as they come. Our style is considered to be natural and organic while thoughtful, slightly structured and a little off center. The most complicated of environments and color palettes can be executed by us and we are always up for a good challenge. Our experience and dedication to unique settings has allowed us to curate the most amazing design team, with top-notch knowledge of the industry landscape with which we work.
We love working with our clients and we can't wait to hear from you.
