Welcome to Oak and the Owl – I’m Nancy! With a timelessly romantic style, I design events that take what my clients desire and give them more than they ever dreamed of. My mission is to wrap my clients in calmness and trust, knowing that they can rely on me to take care of every detail.
Oak & The Owl also stands alone as the only floral company in CA with its own garden rose farm, its sister company, Ella Rose Farm. Through years of executing luxury weddings, I’ve curated the farm to carry only the most asked for garden roses, and through my organic growing process, they’re some of the most beautiful roses on the market.
I love what I do, and I love my clients. I believe in the strength of traditions and the joy and stability they bring to family units. Being part of that process is an honor, and I'm beyond grateful to create memories that last a lifetime.
Nancy and Oak & The Owl created the most beautiful and cherished memories for my son, his wife and our family. With just a few images of inspiration and a general color palette, Nancy created a wedding experience beyond anything that we could have imagined. Her attention to detail is impeccable and was apparent in everything she touched - from florals to placement to every last candle. Nancy is a true and trusted professional, she's well known and highly respected as an expert in the wedding industry and it shows.
Nancy and her team are incredible. They transformed an already stunning space at Rancho Valencia into a dream world. Nancy was there with my wedding planner every step of the way to make this day special as florals were very important to not only me, but my mother. From my personal bouquet to the reception tables, to our welcome event with beautiful white pumpkins, we were blown away. In every aspect Nancy is extremely caring and professional. We could not recommend her more highly. If I could, I would give her 500 stars. She is a gem.
How many times have you ordered flowers and they weren't to your expectation? Now imagine ordering flowers for your wedding day that exceed your expectations! Trusting Nancy with florals for our wedding day was like striking gold! Nancy is my flower friend. I had never met her till the day of my wedding. Talking to her on the phone I knew she valued flowers, quality and beauty like I do. I trusted her to make the decisions and I'm glad I did! Nancy, thank you for all you did for our wedding day! You made it that much more beautiful!
"Nancy is an absolute gem. We were planning our wedding from across the country, and she not only streamlined the process, but worked to really understand my somewhat obscure vision and executed it beautifully. It was clear from the first time we spoke that she was absolutely committed to helping us create the wedding of our dreams. She is super organized, reliable, incredibly easy to talk to, and an absolute dream to have by your side as you plan your wedding. Needless to say, our flowers and decor were breathtaking, and Nancy and her team were wonderful to work with. I will be recommending Oak & the Owl to anyone and everyone!"
Nancy created the most beautiful florals for our wedding. Her calm, kindness, and sincerity in creating beauty for our wedding was a breath of fresh air. It was touching to feel how genuinely she cared about making our day special. Every floral component was just beyond. Our guests told us how beautiful it was, to the point of referencing the "Garden of Eden". We would highly recommend Nancy to anyone - not only for her incredible talent, but for her sincerity in adding beauty and meaning to such a special event.
Nancy was our real life wedding angel. She helped us navigate several date and venue changes, having to adjust our guest count multiple times due to covid restrictions and more -- all with the highest level of professionalism, grace and calm. After an elongated span of working together, she became like an extended member of our family and was always responsive and attentive with us and all of our family members who were involved in the planning process. When the big day finally arrived, it was beyond our wildest dreams -- and Nancy went above and beyond to ensure that every single detail was perfect, stunningly beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Nancy was more than we could have ever dreamed of for a wedding partner and friend, and we are forever grateful to her for the memories she helped create for us, our families and our friends.
Working with Nancy was truly a dream! The moment we saw Nancy’s work, we were absolutely blown away. Nancy is beyond talented, gifted, and completely transformed our special day. Despite our wedding being postponed due the pandemic, we picked up right where we left off and the entire process was smooth. Nancy was a joy to work with; she was considerate, communicative, and thoughtful in our design meetings together. We trusted her implicitly and gave her full creative freedom and rein—and wow!! She truly created magic and exceeded our expectations. Our guests are still talking about the floral arrangements and Nancy’s work. We cannot imagine our special day without her and look forward to working with her in the future!
From Davina: Nancy so eloquently created a magical space for us to celebrate our love. With a shift in plans due to a downpour of rain - she was calm and supportive with great insight on how to handle this predicament. Day of I was completely astonished at my Bridal Bouquet. I couldn’t believe how something could be so beautiful. All florals throughout had so much intention and added such an elegant touch. Nancy has the vision to make a space remarkable and the ability to create florals that are unparalleled!
From Austin: Nancy was so easy to work with. We were so grateful to have her on our team. Coordinating with us and our vendors made the day go so smoothly. She made us want to get married again for the heck of it.
As my best friend's daughter was planning her wedding, she lost her mom after a long battle with cancer. I've previously worked with Nancy in other sensitive situations and I knew that she would, again, be perfect for this very special and emotional occasion. Nancy instinctively took the vision from a few pieces of inspiration and brought it to life in a beautiful and meaningful way. We unexpectedly had a torrential downpour in the desert the day-of and Nancy's experience and professionalism allowed her to seamlessly pivot and keep us all at ease. Once again, Nancy's attention to detail is always outstanding and I highly, highly recommend Oak & The Owl.
I began the wedding planning process with a million Instagram wedding posts overwhelming my mind. No cohesive theme, no colors, not even a venue. Magically Nancy took all of my thoughts, saved posts and ideas then created the most perfect wedding day that reflected both my husband and me beautifully. Even a year later people are constantly telling me how beautiful my wedding was. Not just generally commenting, but remembering elements of the flowers, the table design, the escort wall. All of that was Nancy. Her taste is impeccable. My husband likes a traditional style and I’m more modern. Our design incorporated both while working with the natural elements of a vineyard venue.Our day was absolutely perfect for us. For me, that’s the sign of a gifted wedding designer. She learned about us; she infused her expertise and creativity into our ideas then elevated it beyond my imagination.
