Our Story

ABOUT
Hi! I’m Audrey Chaney, AIFD.  I am a serial entrepreneur with a background in design and a passion for creating successful businesses.  I have been in the design industry since 2000, and have run and operated a small business since 2007.  My unique take on aesthetics, business marketing and systems and processes has been a journey that has taken me and my life on a very exciting adventure.

MY BUSINESS JOURNEY
As I mentioned, I have been in the design world over 15 years and have been a business owner for over 10 years.  I own Botanica Events, Inc. which specialized in wedding and event floral design and specialty rentals.  Starting in 2018 I will no longer be booking events within the wedding and event world, but rather I am moving out of this space and have been called to consult other businesses with their business in marketing and social media.  I found much success in this area within my business creating systems and tools to streamline and make my business efficient, profitable and sought after.  Within the last 5 years, I have also transitioned to the home-space.  I am a CA Realtor – Audrey Chaney Real Estate with Realty ONE Group, and have paired my design and marketing strengths to help clients buy and sell homes.  I believe an organized, customer service approach that is systematized ensures a smooth and stress-free process.

MEDIA
My design work and business has been featured on countless National and International blogs, print, and television.  Some of these include:  WE TV’s Platinum Weddings, TLC’s Married by Mom + Dad, Style Me Pretty, South Asian Bride Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Tahoe Unveiled, Hochzeitsguide, Green Wedding Shoes, The Knot, and more!  I was named in 2017 as one of the Top 30 Under 30 by Florist Review Magazine.

BIOGRAPHY
My love of design started at a young age.  I was the child always changing around her room + creating craft projects.  I became very involved in the floral design world, getting a degree in Horticulture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Upon graduating from college, I started my wedding business specializing in floral design at the time.  Having fulfilled many personal and professional accomplishments, my passion of designing flowers shifted, and launched a specialty rental business that has grown to be very successful and sought after.  I now am taking my journey of utilizing different mediums to help clients in their home search and lifestyle design.

PERSONAL LIFE
Other than being extremely passionate about following my dreams, some fun things you might not know about me:
I love country music, and attending concerts.
I grew up in a small town on the Central Coast where I raised animals growing up, and was a member of 4-H and FFA.
I enjoy running, baking and watercolor.
I have a 11 year old pup, Ebi who is my little sidekick.  She’s a chihuahua, and makes IG appearances sometimes.
I love inspiring quotes, videos and am always reading a non-fiction book.
I am a total plant nerd.
