As owner of Fiore Fine Flowers, and lead wedding designer, Chelsea’s smile and calming nature is so hypnotizing we’re convinced it makes the flowers always happy to bloom. With a love for delivering refreshing wedding & event designs and heart-stirring bridal bouquets, this creative maven takes her alluring floral designs to a new level. Chelsea has 11+ years transforming fresh cut blooms into captivating floral arrangements, and has earned Fiore its award-winning reputation for inspiring floral designs. Trucking cross-country from sunny San Diego, where she worked her creative magic on window displays and design for Anthrolopologie, this innovative designer lives for style. Her colorful concepts come from her unique ability to find inspiration in nature, impromptu road trips, and an understanding that individual style is key to innovation.
This vivacious North Carolinian is our lead daily designer and wedding consultant, with over 14+ years of design experience under her belt, it’s no wonder our clients ask to speak to Shelley personally for that perfect, custom arrangement they have in mind. Shelley’s impressive artistic background is as colorful as her personality, from her design years producing large scale events at the infamous Cesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, to her local roots working hands-on in the wholesale side of our floral business—this floral designer truly knows how to select the highest quality of flowers in the whole state for our clients. Shelley’s passion for painting, thrift store scouring, crafting, and her family (and four dogs) keeps Shelley inspired to consistently create custom, high-quality designs.
Our native Wilmingtonian, returned home to the port city in 2014 and we are so glad she did! Fresh off an organic farm in Oahu, where she tended to veggies, chickens and livestock alike, Claire is not afraid to get her hands dirty or try new things. Prior to her Hawaiian adventure, she was in AmeriCorps sharing her joyful spirit with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, the National Mississippi Museum and Aquarium, and Camp Echoing Hills. She jumped on board the Fiore Team as a delivery driver and is now working her magic as a designer. With a passion for the planet and good vibes, Claire approaches design with a playful sense of style, lending her colorful spirit to the designs she creates.
She’s our social media guru, IT, customer service and resident professional photographer. A Jill of all trades, Jennifer is no stranger to the wedding and event industry; she has her own photography business and has shot hundreds of weddings, musical and sporting events. Jennifer has been lending a hand to the Fiore Team on and off since she moved to Wilmington in 2010, and now we are so fortunate to have her with us everyday! Jennifer’s happy smile and easygoing attitude create an atmosphere that keep customers coming back again and again. When she’s not in the shop, she’s usually on the road visiting family and friends, sampling craft brews, paddleboarding or using her photography skills with nonprofits. We know eventually she’ll be heading off on new adventure to a remote land (camera in hand) but we’ll keep her as long as we can.
You can find these happy faces toting fresh flowers from the shop to your doorstep, prepping flowers on the design floor, assisting with event set ups and helping customers in the shop. We don’t know what we’d do with out them!
