About your Designer
My name is Nicole Buss and my journey to become a Floral Designer began back in Peace River, AB with the Freson IGA floral department. As a student I began doing odd jobs in the floral department but this part-time job soon became a passion of mine.
I trained under an amazing, fun and vibrant lady (Louis Steward) who discovered something about me that I myself did not even realize. She took me under her wing and started my training with fresh, dried and, silk floral arrangements which quickly progressed to working along side her designing for weddings. I will never forget my first wedding bouquet I designed as this is truly where my story begins as a wedding floral designer.
This journey then led me to Medicine Hat, Alberta where I met the love of my life Shane of 19 years of marriage. In Medicine Hat I started working at several greenhouses as well as Grower Direct where I tuned my craft. Although I had gained some very valuable experience in floral design over these years, I still did not have my certification and therefore I had completed the Floral Designing Certification Program offered by ICS Learning...where I graduated with honors. I am now also enrolled in the Wedding Floral Design course with The International Institute of Weddings and am attending numerous workshops to further my education.
For the past 18 years I have been a stay at home mom to my two amazing children and would not change the time spent at home with my kids for anything in the world. However, it is now time for me to work on my passion again.
My gratification comes from making the fairy tale day into a reality for every couple. I understand the importance of the fine details to every wedding and one of these fine details is your wedding flowers. Floral designing is so much more than a bouquet of flowers to me...it's my passion and I can't wait to share this passion with you!
