Our Story

ABOUT
Hi! I’m Audrey Chaney.  I am an entrepreneur at heart with a background in design.  I have been in the design industry since 2000, and have run and operated a small business since 2007.  I am passionate about transforming spaces and helping clients create a unique look that reflects their personality.

RECENT NEWS
In recent news, I have decided to shift the focus of Botanica from weddings and events to home and lifestyle.  Having been in the wedding and event industry for the past 11 years has been a bittersweet decision, but is more aligned with my passions and my real estate career.  I am excited to help homeowners create a space within their home that truly reflects them!

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, Tahoe Unveiled, Hochzeitsguide, Green Wedding Shoes, The Knot, and more!

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.
