Richard Lim, Founder
Richard met Crystal when they were business school students. Every week, he bought her a bouquet from the local flower shop. This gesture was sweet, but it started to add up (especially on a grad school budget). Luckily, it was money well spent. Now they’re married and those weekly bouquets make for a great story to tell future grandkids.
Flowers continued to be a regular part of Richard’s life. Business school paved the way for a job as an executive at TeleFlora, where Richard led the farm-direct business for 13,000 U.S. florists. He learned all about the logistics of shipping as well as the hefty markups that come along with getting flowers from the farm to the florist to the customer.
One fortuitous day, when he was doing price comparisons at the Los Angeles Flower Market, he bumped into a childhood friend, Euri. She had become a florist. This chance meet-up led to a chat about a business idea Richard had for a new way to shop for wedding flowers.
As the idea was brewing, Richard and Crystal got engaged and started the all-consuming journey of wedding planning. Endless researching and meeting with vendors became a huge part of their lives. While many spouses won’t say it out loud, going to florists doesn’t top the list of ways to spend a Saturday. Couldn’t a couple just go online and shop for wedding flowers that brought all the quality, without the cost? And get their weekends back?
As it turns out, yes. All of that’s possible…
