Meet the team

Earth Blossoms was founded over 30 years ago by wedding florist savant, Noreen Saksa. Noreen spent years honing her craft and creating some of the most stunning florals for weddings and events throughout Connecticut and destinations along the East Coast. 

In 2016,  Stephanie, was approached by Noreen with a chance to carry on the Earth Blossom’s name. Knowing that Earth Blossoms had been her life’s work, Noreen strove to ensure that her company’s reputation would be maintained. 

Stephanie is fortunate to have earned Noreen’s faith and is honored to accept the responsibility for maintaining the proud legacy of the business  established through a lifetime of love and commitment.

Hello, nice to meet you

Meet Stephanie

Hi, I'm Stephanie!  Wife to an incredibly supportive husband, Jay, and Mom to three of the most amazing boys (#boymom), Jamien, Sawyer and Kellan.  Also Mom to a cat named Elliott, a dog named Luna (as in Luna Lovegood) and fifteen chickens!

My favorite things include family, flowers, tea, meditation, and being in nature.  I'm also obsessed with astrology.  I'm an Aquarius Sun, Aries Moon, and Taurus Rising.

I absolutely live for floral installations!  Staircases, chandeliers, mantels - all of it!  I especially love the challenge of designing florals in seemingly impossible places!  Although it is hard to compete with the intimacy of designing a bridal bouquet.  Delicately crafting a unique bouquet based on each individual couple is an incredible experience and quite possibly my favorite part of each and every wedding I design.

I began heading in the direction of floral design after earning my business degree and driven by my desire to make things beautiful. I’ve had the esteemed pleasure of fine-tuning the art of floral design by learning from Noreen’s expertise. Working alongside Noreen has been the most artistically challenging and rewarding experience of my career.  

Putting my creativity to work is very therapeutic for me while seeing a beautiful design brought to life makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

Hi, I'm Stephanie!
