Julianna Asis General Manager & Lead Designer considers the art of floral design a sculptural process utilizing the most beautiful medium nature has to offer. A New England native, she began her career as a landscape designer on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, with a special interest in the art of succession plantings of perennial gardens. Julianna was creatively inspired while designing in the flower fields of a Vineyard farm where she transitioned to cut floral design and event production. She brings more than twelve years of design, installation, and management experience to the LaFleur team. Originally drawn to the southwest to study ecology at Prescott College, her love for the Sonoran desert and sky islands have kept her in Arizona to flourish in the popular wedding destination of Tucson.
