Meet Anna

Anna Gordon

Fun Fact: “I started arranging flowers on my parent's farm since I was 11 years old.``

Upon graduating Western Michigan University with a business management degree in 2012, I decided I wanted to pursue my love and hobby of floral design. After college, I gained professional knowledge and expertise at a local florist and developed a strong passion for all types of floral design; especially working with weddings. There is a deep love and commitment that develops within when I want to meet a brides wishes for her wedding flowers, the day she has dreamed about her entire life! That’s when I knew it was time to branch off and start my own business and make dreams come true!

Flowers by Anna started out of our home in Niles, MI in August 2013. As a young entrepreneur, you can probably guess, it wasn’t hard for me to break into the social media field to market my business. Once I built a foundation, my business boomed! In the year of 2014, I grew my own cut-flowers on my parents farm and participated as a vendor at the Daley Plaza Chicago Farmers Market. Not only was I busy keeping up with the work on the farm, I was blessed to have 48 weddings in my first year of business, including helping with my own wedding. In 2015, my husband Josh and I welcomed our first child, Ava, into our family! As we were adjusting to our new chapter in life with a child, I also had a total of 56 weddings for 2015. In the beginning of 2016, we purchased a building in Buchanan to move my business into and to be the permanent location for our growing business. We couldn’t be more excited to be in our new location and see what the many future years will hold for our family and my business! Floral design has always been a passion of mine and each year it gets stronger and develops a deeper connection of love and commitment that I put into each customer’s dreams and wishes for their floral needs!
