Hi there! My name is Sharleen Heist and I am the one woman wonder behind Shartreuse Floral Studio. In 2012 I decided to switch careers and become a floral designer, best decision I’ve ever made! I love flowers, I grow them, design with them and even photograph them. My favorite type of floral design is of course, wedding and event design. With a background in graphic design and photography I’ve done everything from design wedding invitations to photograph newly engaged couples, so it’s not much of a surprise that I would love creating beautiful and unique floral designs for weddings.

My goal is to offer one of a kind, high quality floral creations that not only reflect your personal style but also aid in setting the mood for your event. Whether you are going for romantic with a vintage flair, casual with rustic touches or whimsical and fun flowers can set the tone and enhance your special day, making it an occasion you and your guests will be sure to remember.

With such a diverse background in so many creative areas I am often asked to assist in other aspects of my clients event planning. With this being the case, I decided to officially offer my event styling services.

You’re probably asking yourself what is “event styling”?

Event styling is as it suggests, anything to do with the style, or look and feel of your event. From choosing a color scheme, sourcing the perfect invitations, creating a one of a kind dessert bar, setting up a lounge or photo booth for your guests to interact with, to creating thoughtful gift baskets for your bridal party, designing unique signs and/or banners and of course selecting awesome flowers for the perfect centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages! I can assist with it all.

Is it the same as “event planning”?

No, I don’t do any of the actual planning of your event. The venue, caterer, band, officiant etc. are up to you to book. I can and often do offer suggestions in these areas, but it is not currently a service I offer.

You may have also noticed that I offer custom plant designs. Plants are near and dear to me, I currently have over 50 of them in my home! I believe plants add life to a home, office and business. Plus you get the added benefits of air purifying and oxygen producing. You really can’t go wrong with a few well placed plants. I can help you select the perfect plant (or plants!) for your space and the perfect vessel for your aesthetic.

So now that you’ve gotten to know me and what I do, let’s talk! Use my contact page if you like or send me an email at

I’d love to discuss with you how I can help create the wedding or event of your dreams!
