Growing up in her mother’s garden, Raquel has always had a love affair with flowers. She dreamt of being a floral designer but decided to study botany and biology at the University of Texas. In 2010 while in her senior year at U.T. Texas, Raquel started designing her friend’s wedding flowers and shortly after R. Love Floral was born. While teaching elementary science and planting the seeds for her floral business, R. Love Floral blossomed into a blooming floral business. Leaving teaching behind to become a full-time entrepreneur, Raquel built a dream team and designed over 500 weddings in 10 years. Since starting her floral business in 2010, Raquel has worked with the most amazing wedding clients, large corporate accounts, taught hundreds of floral classes both in person and virtually and mentored countless budding designers. When she’s not designing beautiful arrangements, or teaching in the flower barn you can find Raquel in the garden, playing with her kids and spending time with her husband at their dream home in the country.
