Even though I was born in northern Virginia, at age 5 my family moved to the suburbs of Baltimore Maryland. My Mom and Dad decided that they wanted more property to house horses and other farm animals. We moved to Carroll County in 1986 and I’ve resided here every since. My mother loved gardening and I would help her with flower beds. I loved planning colors and styles with her. I would help her pick flowers and watch her place them in vases on the dining room table for us to enjoy! She would later join me at the flower shop as a designer during holidays, when we would get extremely busy.
My love for floral design started in high school when my first job was at a garden center that also specialized in weddings. After gaining several years of experience, I moved onto a local florist. Growing with experience and passion, I then went on to fully manage two other full service florists. While managing the retail side, I also personally handled weddings from meeting with the brides, designing the wedding flowers, to delivery and set up of ceremonies & receptions.
I also worked with local companies, colleges, & hospitals for all their yearly events. Twenty-five years later, I found myself longing for just the “one on one” relationship with specialty event planning. Today, I am owner/operator of Flowers By Wendy Carol, offering my personal service and expertise from your initial consultation to the moment of your occasion. My true passion still drives me to bring that personal touch of elegance and beauty to your special day.
