Sachiko Rose Selvagn (Sachi) was born in raised in Santa Monica, CA, where building tee-pees out of palm fronds, making flower crowns, and playing in dirt was pretty much an every-day thing. Not much has changed, except that these days she gets paid for it. "Sachiko", which means "happy girl" in Japanese, is exactly what Sachi is. Who wouldn't be happy doing what they love every day? Having come from a family of artists, hippies, jokesters, gardeners & entrepreneurs, a career in floral design was practically her destiny.
In 2008, Sachi graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in painting, and ended up moving back to LA to pursue a career as a starving artist. That didn't work out because Sachi has an awesome appetite, so she decided to get a side job at a sweet little flower shop called Botany. Flowers quickly became her medium of choice as she went on to become the head designer, and finally discovered her calling.
Eventually Sachi moved to Brooklyn with her soon-to-be husband, and designed for a handful of New York's top florists until 2013, when she decided to venture out on her own. Starting out as a one-woman-show fulfilling small orders from her kitchen, soon turned into designing large scale events from her studio in Williamsburg with a talented team of freelance designers.
THE SACHI ROSE STUDIO
Sachi works closely with her trusty team of designers & production assistants, from their Brooklyn-based floral studio to the final installation on location. The Sachi Rose team also loves to travel for events, so please contact us for details if you're planning on getting hitched out-of-state! On most weekdays, Sachi can be found writing proposals for future weddings, trying not to order too much take-out, cuddling her cats (named Dennis & Little Pea), and creating custom arrangements for happy customers in NYC.
the sachi rose studio is located in east williamsburg, by appointment only
If you're interested in setting up a meeting, we prefer to wine & dine you elsewhere (so that we don't have to clean up our flower mess). Kidding. Not kidding. But if you're a flower enthusiast and REALLY want to see where the magic happens (and promise not to get scared away by the piles of boxes, coffee cups & stems everywhere), we will happily make an exception.
