Would you like to know more about the women behind the dream? I am Alyssa Marie-Swails Ferguson and I’m a singer, dancer, baker, artist, gardener, floral designer, lover of antiques and a small business owner with a flower obsession! Ever since I was a little girl I have always been infatuated with flowers, which is funny because to this day while foraging for flowers I still feel like a kid exploring for the first time with excitement. I’m a mother to a golden doodle puppy named Otto who keeps me company while I’m designing late into the night and a love bird named Jo Jo who sings along while I work. I have a loving and supportive husband whose made sure I followed my passion of floral design as a career and helped me jump into the excitement of being a small business owner after being in the floral and event industry for 10 years. With my Michigan certified florist certification, I am working on my event planning and coordination certification next.
I have a vast range of design styles so my design capabilities are endless. If you were to ask me of lately, my current style is a modern meets nature approach. I have been servicing Brides ranging from minimal & simplistic, shabby chic, loose garden inspired, to lush and plush showy ballroom designs, pave and mono botanical modern styled designs. Truly I love each style in their own ways!
I also love to be challenged by new and unique styles and designs. I love to do large floral art installations! I stole the show at the GRAM's "Art In Bloom" showcase + contest, tied for 1st place for the jurors award and 2nd place for peoples choice award. I was ecstatic, surprised and amazed because I create for the sake of creating and like to be realistic, I had no idea that I was capable with my zero expectations to win not 1 but 2 honorable awards for my design created and inspired by "The Lady in The Opera Cloak's" curves! Also partnered in an ArtPrize Entry in 2017 and may enter again soon solo. If you haven't gotten the vibe from me yet, I must tell you that I love you to push boundaries and to inspire with my design work and floral installations, it is such a humbling experience to inspire someone and to make their dream a reality. My big dreams don’t stop there, my goal is to work towards a wedding venue that is a historically restored building to get my fix of old mansion or house that has such timelessness and character!
Fleurology Designs llc is definitely a mouthful of a name, but the meaning behind it is why this name was a perfect fit! As a flower obsessed and botanical intrigued designer, I love to study, analyze and experiment with flowers, foliages and plants which to me summarized was Floral Biology. So I wanted to create a word that meant Floral Biology and this is how the fruition of fleurology was created! So my mission is to spread the love, joy and education of flowers and botanicals to every client or person I meet!
Now that you know the heart and mind behind the floral designer and owner, Please feel free to reach out to me about any inquiries, questions or curiosities you have with flowers or if you would like to create together!
