Meet Amy Harvey
Amy is an artist. She enjoys working with clients to tell their story through flowers and décor. Each couple is unique and she believes their wedding should be an expression of their personalities. Her diverse design background comes from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design where she received a BFA in Interior Design. Although her true love is floral design, she studied all aspects of design from painting, fibers, illustration and sculpture to technical building and design specifications; all of which have strengthened her design foundation.
After operating a retail floral business for seven years, Amy decided to embark on a new venture focusing on weddings and floral event design. Today, she enjoys working with the incredible team of designers that she has built to deliver extraordinary events to many of Savannah’s preeminent residents as well as celebrity and destination couples.
When Amy is not dreaming up a fabulous design for a wedding, she can be found soaking up some sun and probably sipping on a glass of bubbly! Of all the flowers available, coral peonies are her favorite! She loves taking them home and watching as they change colors from coral to peach and then a pale yellow.
Michelle Leary has twenty years of experience in the floral industry, she inherited a passion and appreciation for florals and foliage from her grandmother, who was quite an eccentric gardener. Michelle graduated with a BFA from the University of New Mexico. She began working with Amy Harvey in early 2017 as a production floral designer. In 2019 she was promoted to Installation Specialist thanks to her proficiency at creating large scale professional floral installations for Harvey Designs. She says “Large hanging installations are my favorite to fabricate and design, they create such a bold and luxurious statement!” In her free time she enjoys creating pottery in her home studio, working in the garden and renovating/restoring their historic mid-century home.
