494 REVISIT LEWIS MILLER: The “Banksy of Floral Design

 In All Network Episodes, Floral Designers, The Wedding Biz

“Before I know what flowers I’m going to use, I need to know what backdrop I’m going to create to show off those flowers.” Listen as Andy and his guest Lewis Miller discuss how Lewis came to be in New York City, his process with clients, how he gets inspired for his designs, and so much more on this episode of The Wedding Biz!

Lewis discusses how his pop-up flower flashes started and where he did his first one. He shares why he moved from Seattle, Washington to New York City and how he opened his small flower shop without fear or hesitation because he knew that was what he was supposed to be doing.

Listen as Lewis shares his process when speaking with clients, a story about one particular wedding he did in an unappealing ballroom, and the curveball he was thrown. Lewis also shares how he merges his company’s business aspect with his creative side.

Lewis is a poster child for how to run a business that can tackle a pandemic and come back bigger and stronger. He believes that if you trim the fat every few years and watch where you spend money, you will still be around when others are not. He is an inspiring creative, and you don’t want to miss this episode.
