"To love and to be loved is to feel the sun from both sides." ~ David Viscott
Tanya Rogers, Floral Designer
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a deep-rooted love for all things Mother Nature. From the most minute creatures to the grandiose, from land to sea, I find the natural world fascinating. I love exploring new ecosystems and discovering unique plants, trees, and flowers. My childhood passion led me to a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology, focusing on endangered species. Through my research in India, studying socioeconomic impacts on tiger conservation, I lived amongst rural subsistence farmers. This experience of being directly connected to the land, led me to my next journey as a steward of sustainable agriculture back home in Canandaigua, NY. During that time, I obtained a seasonal job at a local florist and fell in love with floral design.
I truly enjoy working with my hands and being creative. The process of design and visual gratification of one’s work is deeply rewarding. While the elements of Mother Nature are beautiful on their own, I love to combine them in an enchanting and elegant way that brings about a greater appreciation for the stunning magnificence of our natural world. Combining my educational background with floral design, I strive to source as much locally grown and in-season products as possible, ultimately promoting a more sustainable floral industry!
Through many years of experience with several amazing mentors, I am proud to bring my multifaceted talents to life through Moondream Florals. I am a home-based design studio located in Canandaigua, NY, specializing in weddings and events throughout the beautiful Finger Lakes region. As a small, local business booking a limited number of events per year, I am able to focus on quality over quantity. Superior attention to detail enables me to ensure that your special day is the floral event of your dreams!
Tanya made our wedding day beautiful and stress-free. Her bouquets were the perfect finishing touch.
