Meet Our Designers

Botanica Floral Artisans was created from our passion for personalized, fresh flower art. We believe in farm-fresh product, brought in for every event so that the flowers in every Botanica creation are at their absolute best. To ensure the highest quality for your wedding or event, we have partnered with the top local and worldwide floral suppliers.

Procuring the freshest best floral products from around the world is not enough, you must add the most important ingredient to the flowers in order to create true floral art: the Botanica wedding floral artisan. Combining the experience and talent of Flowerama with the direction of head floral artisan, Steven Sturdivant, Botanica Floral Artisans strive to provide the Columbus community with a fresh and creative take on floral art and wedding design. We call it the Botanica difference and it starts from our core belief that we are creating art, not just a flower arrangement. Below are our professional floral artisans and a short bio on each.

Steven Sturdivant

Steven Sturdivant was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico and moved to Ohio when he was 3 years old. His love and passion for flowers and nature are part of his family history. His great grandfather, Paul Wearts, worked as head Gardner at Franklin Park Conservatory. His grandmother, Seyna Schwartz's, love of gardens and wildflowers sparked his curiosity and she passed her knowledge and experience to him at a young age. His father, Jim's, love of Ohio's farm land and the outdoors helped Steven learn more as he assisted his father on their family farm. His mother, Mabel, always supported and encouraged his interests and taught him to be true to himself.

All of these wonderful influences gave him a foundation for his designs. Self- taught in his organic and innovative style, his design aesthetic comes from a place rooted in the mid-west countryside and urban places where he grew up. He has been in the floral industry for over 30 years; working in all aspects of design work. His varied experiences and passion for flowers fuels his excitement in planning your special event.

After all these years and the evolution of floral design, Katie still gets inspired today. She attends wedding events and venues and gathers inspiration from magazines and Columbus's very own, Franklin Park Conservatory. While knowledge is aplenty in this industry and trends are always changing, Katie enjoys acquiring as much knowledge as she can, learning new things and staying current with what's trending.
