OWNER + LEAD DESIGNER
Wendee Sawran started in the hospitality industry, working with major hotel brands and learning the ins and outs of hospitality management. In 2005, Wendee started Lucie’s Weddings & Events and shifted her focus to event planning and designing. During her time at Lucie’s, she gained not only knowledge of floral design, but also a passion for the creativity floral design embodies. Throughout her career, she has specialized in everything related to a soirée, and serviced mainly the Austin and San Antonio areas, but also traveled throughout Texas and pretty much anywhere a good margarita could be found.
Favorite things: Giant dahlias, donuts and puppies of all ages, shapes and sizes.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
If you want to meet someone who wears many hats, this is your girl. Born with a creative eye, Azalia makes sure that everything runs smoothly behind the scenes and that our team provides our clients with the true Botanical No. 9 experience. When she’s not at the office blowing up millions of balloons, you can find her playing her with her pit bull, Luna, or salsa dancing her way to the nearest vintage shop.
Having spent the last four years working as a florist around Austin, Siobhan has become a part of our team as your go-to girl for all things flowers. Hailing from the Northeast, you can find her around the studio mostly just grumbling about the Texas heat. Outside of floral, Siobhan enjoys creating ceramics, photography, and reading several books at once.
