Meet Amy Armstrong, owner of The Conservatorie, a full-service floral and event design firm located on San Marco Avenue that opened its doors in 2010.
With St. Augustine being a destination wedding town, Amy, 31, saw a great opportunity to bring a fresh take on floral design to the area.
â€œWe feel that we have a modern ethereal style that makes us stand apart from the rest,â€ she says.
â€œWe like to let the flowers speak for themselves with little frill and all nature.â€
The Conservatorie has quickly made a name for itself within the community through special events and workshops.
â€œBeing a women business owner in this city is rewarding in so many ways,â€ says Amy.
â€œI feel especially connected to the other small business owners around the same age doing such incredible things.â€
