My whole life I have been in the flower business. I grew up in and around my family's nursery and flower shop. Over 60 years ago my family started White Birch Nursery and Florist in Rotterdam, NY.

In 1992, after I graduated from SUNY Cobleskill I started working as a floral designer. During this time I spent a few summers in Southampton, NY working in a flower shop. Working with high end cliental and designers, gave me the knowledge and experience to become head designer. Some would say that having the passion for style and color combinations is in my DNA, but I have also developed it through hard work and these experiences.

After the closing of my family's flower shop in 2003, I decided to pursue my true love and passion of designing flowers for weddings and special events. During the summer of 2004 I took on several weddings myself, and truly loved it! That is why in the fall of 2004 I did a full launch of jolenek floral design, with the simple philosophy of quality not quantity. This is why I only take one wedding or event per date.

By scheduling only one event per date, it gives me the ability to focus on that client entirely. I will be the person you talk to at the consultation and the person to deliver the flowers on the day of the event.

I am friendly, creative and truly enjoy what I do!
