Kelly

Owner + Lead Designer

Flowers have been part of my life ever since I can remember.           

My earliest recollection of working with flowers was in kindergarten on the soccer field. Instead of being focused on the game, I was enamored with the wildflowers and spent that time making flower crowns.

 

As I got older, my love for flowers only deepened, eventually leading me to work at a local flower shop in college. Here, my passion grew as I learned the art of floral design from some of the best florists in this city. 

My favorite place I've traveled is Rio de Janeiro. 

I have a toy poodle named Rosie who is the spunkiest dog you'll ever meet and often can be seen "helping" in the studio. 

I married my college sweetheart, Branson, and we have a cute little bungalow in East Nashville, with my studio upstairs!

Harley

Creative Director + Designer

Flowers are a love language all of their own. 

Whether people realize it or not, flowers are an integral part of almost every major event that takes place in our lives. From births to graduations to marriages and even death, flowers are a way of celebrating and they are a way of coping. They bring people together to build beautiful bonds and memories.

I was born in Colorado, raised in Tennessee and have always been obsessed with travel (Current top 3 on the list: New Zealand, Alberta, and Australia). I studied fine art in school and could not be more thrilled with the direction I've taken my creativity.

 

I was a collegiate athlete, am left-handed, will always be in love with Heath Ledger and if I could be any character in a movie I'd be Sandra Bullock in Practical Magic. 

 

Ellie-Mae

Designer

Flowers have always been central to my creative expression.       

Ever since I was a kid, I have been gathering, pressing, painting, growing and admiring flowers, so becoming a florist seemed natural and right for me.

I was born and raised in Nashville and I love this city! I also love coffee, Korean food, good conversations, and anything outdoors. 

My husband Eli and I got married when we were 21! 

Fun fact: I'm a triple black belt in Taekwondo.

Carlie

Studio Manager + Associate Designer

Flowers allow us to be a part of some of the most magical moments in people's lives. 

One thing that has been a constant in my life is a love for the "girlier” and an eye for design. This played out through a passion for aesthetics and the way a well styled place or event can affect those who are living in them. In my eyes making spaces prettier is just more fun! These passions were brought to fruition when I decided to major in Hospitality Management with a concentration in Event Planning at the University of Alabama (roll tide!)  After interning for a local florist I saw my passions for design and my love for florals melt together and I can never go back!

 

I am the foreigner of the group and am from the great state of Alabama! I recently moved to Nashville to work with Echoes of Eden and am excited to dive into my role at studio manager & associate designer.

 

On an off day you can find me trying a new coffee shop, antiquing, or binging my favorite Tv Shows!

 

Fun fact: my favorite class in high school was called Echoes of Eden so you could say it’s meant to be:)
