The owner of Wildflower started her wedding planning business in 2009 after working as an artist, floral designer and event design consultant since 1999. Wedding planning for her clients and sub-contracting vendors to handle all aspects of their events, she began to see that floral was one section of the event that Maya wanted to handle direct from her home- based studio. After a few floral pop-up events combined with the need for more space to house the staff and events she was creating, she opened Wildflower in October of 2018. Wildflower is now supplying Des Moines with the unique floral she has been providing her clients for years. Currently she is trying to balance being a wife, parenting her 3 children, and a new love; the KBye podcast!
