Rebecca Shepherd, Floral Designer

Rebecca Shepherd Floral DesignBrooklynite since: 2000

Favorite Brooklyn spots:  My favorite Brooklyn spot is Greenwood Cemetery, which is like your own private park, historical experience, as well as a place to enjoy the heavily promoted arts including theater, dance and music. Soon this beautiful place will be a museum where it’s all about sharing and preserving the history. I also love the DUMBO area where it’s all cobblestone streets, amazing views of the city and top notch restaurants like reBar, Grimaldi’s, and Bubby’s.

Three words my closest friends would use to describe me: Imaginative, a trendsetter, trustworthy

What I love about what I do: I love designing. I love coming up with new ways to mash together two totally different styles. I feel like the luckiest girl ever to have my hands on flowers while living in ragamuffin clothing.

Five things you don’t know about me: I secretly like getting up at the crack of dawn to get flowers.  I am a recovering vegetarian.  I went on a medical missionary trip to Haiti when I was 15-years-old.  I was a very good water skier.  I live to go antiquing even though I have no more space to put anything. 

Five jobs I had before I was a wedding professional: EMT-Paramedic, jewelry designer (still), massage therapist, farm caretaker, and boutique owner
