Hi, I am Breanna Deveau, owner and Floral Designer at Floral Reef Designs!
I am have been married to my wonderful Husband for over 7 years. We have two beautiful kids - an almost 2 year old girl and a boy who was born in May 2020!
I have worked in the floral industry for over 15 years and have owned Floral Reef for over 8 years. I am always striving to learn more and grow in my designs and in business to be able to serve you better! When you look at my designs I hope you see a love of texture and colour, a high attention to detail and that I strive to exceed your expectations! I also like to use local/Canadian grown product as much as possible!
I am honoured to have some styled shoots and real wedding work featured in the Ottawa wedding Magazine, as well as to have won the Platinum award for Best Bridal bouquet at the Ottawa wedding Awards in 2017.
Q: How did you get started in floral design:
A: I did a High School coop at a Flower shop near where I lived at the time. They hired me after I was done my coop, and then I went on to do the Floral Design program at Algonquin College. From there I worked in another shop and then decided it was time to take the leap and start my own business. Floral Reef started out as a retail storefront and is now a home studio based in North Gower and I am specializing in wedding and Event florals!
Q: What is your favourite flower:
A: Love too many to mention, but one of my favourites is tulips!
Q: Where did you come up with the name Floral Reef Designs
A: In the Floral design program at Algonquin college one of the tasks they had you do was to dream up your own flower shop. Somewhere during the process I came up with the name Floral Reef Designs - a play on a coral reef, because of all the amazing colours and textures you would see there. When it was time to name my own business I tried to come up with other ones but I always came back to it!
