"Weddings are so deeply embedded in my heart. It's one of those moments in your story as a family that furthers your commitment and love for each other. I absolutely LOVE adding beauty through flowers to that part of your journey together."
- Ashley Hotka, Owner and Creative Director for Collections Floral Design Studio + Good Earth Flora Design Studio
Floral artist Ashley Hotka owns Kansas City's Good Earth Floral Design Studio. Her love of flowers started at the very young age of 3, when she would explore the world of floral tape and ribbons while she watched her Grandmother design fresh flower bouquets. Later in life, her first job was naturally as a floral designer, quickly working her way from beginner to lead designer. After seven years, Ashley followed her passion for all things bridal by opening the doors of her very own wedding floral design studio in 2008, and quickly became known for her gorgeous bouquets and unique eye for design. Good Earth Floral has continued to grow to include an amazing team of talented and renowned designers, specializing in luxury, customized, timeless, lush and romantic weddings as well as an attentive client experience.
Ashley wanted to make it simple and effortless to bring beautiful designs to weddings of all sizes and budgets. With that dream, Collections Floral Design Studio was created! Offering that same romantic and timeless style that Good Earth Floral is know for, Ashley and the Good Earth team are now able to bring lush, gorgeous blooms to more couples throughout Kansas City!
Good Earth Floral Design Studio has been featured on WE TV's My Fair Wedding with David Tutera in the 2011 season premiere episode as well as in several wedding publications such as The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Her Life, KC Magazine, Perfect Wedding Guide, Borrowed and Blue and KC Weddings.
