The Face Behind the Blooms
Hi! I am Amanda, founder and owner of Steadfast florals.
Flowers have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. As I think back, I recall the days of my grandma taking photos of me in front of flowers at botanical gardens and parks while in my stroller eating ice cream. Two of my favorites things; flowers and ice cream still to this day!
At 14 years old, after taking a floral class my freshmen year of high school, my passion for flowers grew and I knew I wanted to be in a career with flowers.
I was able to take Floriculture/Horticulture classes, work in a floral shop, gain experience on flower and vegetable farms all throughout high school and college. After graduating with a degree in Horticulture, I finished the farm job I was at for that season and began working on opening Steadfast.
Through all of my schooling and job experiences, life uprooted me multiple times, threw many challenges and curveballs along the way (as it usually does). I would have not gotten here today without the one thing that continues to remain steadfast in my life and that is God. I truly believe He gifted me my floral talent for an escape so that I could find joy in the midst of all the bad while still glorifying Him through it all. I am so thankful for that!
Weddings and events have always been my favorite to design, which is why my focus is on those special days. I was growing cut flowers, but in 2023, I decided my main focus is event work until I can purchase more land to have a small flower farm of my own. I strive to spread the joy God has given me to others through my floral designs.
Favorite flower(s): dahlias, peonies, poppies
Favorite plant(s): cacti, hibiscus, lavender
I love coffee and ice cream
When I'm not flowering, I love being outside in the garden or biking. Or being in the kitchen baking bread and desserts
My husband is an Air Traffic Controller who will assist me on his days off
We have two cats that we love like children (Oakley and Juniper)
Our happy place is Chincoteague Island
