Catherine Shock is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and has been designing since she was fifteen along her mother's side, Faye Mueller. Faye began her business, Flowers by Faye, and has been designing for over 30 years focusing solely on weddings along with corporate accounts. While working with her mother, Catherine assisted with the design and servicing of up to 80 weddings per year and assisted with bids and designs for accounts such as Harley Davidson, Miller Brewing Company, The Doubletree Hotel by Hilton and The Lowlands Group.

Catherine attended Florida State University and received a Bachelor's degree in Economics with a minor in Business. She moved to Chicago and pursued her initial aspirations of a career in finance. When her passion ensued and her creative ambitions took the reins, Catherine made a full commitment to follow her craving for design and attended Waukesha County Technical College (a technical college near Milwaukee) to receive her Certificate in Floral Design.

Catherine launched her own floral design business in Milwaukee after approaching the Director of an already successful restaurant group. Catherine has since worked for a high-end floral design studio in St. Petersburg, Florida and continues to grow her business specializing in weddings, events and corporate accounts.

Her portfolio in Tallahassee includes the Northwood Centre (40th Anniversary Event), Florida State University (e.g. Office of the President, College of Social Sciences Distinguished Alumni Event, including other departments), Tallahassee Nurseries (floral design classes, designer and "talks" on floral design), Lapham Patterson House (Christmas tablescape display) and floral designer for weekly lobby flowers at Hotel Duval. During the holidays, Catherine's portfolio also includes arrangements and elaborate tree and interior Christmas designs. Her wedding work ranges from intimate and boutique-like to large-scale and "over-the-top" not only including the surrounding Tallahassee area but also Thomasville, Georgia and Destin, Florida.

Catherine did the most amazing floral arrangements for my son's Rehearsal Dinner. Her attention to detail was incredible and she created just what I had envisioned. We were even able to use the arrangements the next day at the wedding reception. She is not just a florist, she is also an floral artist with her designs. The best experience you have with Catherine is her trying to please her customer with concise descriptions of what she can do for you with samples of how your floral arrangements will look. Since I was from out of town, we made all the decisions via e-mail and phone calls. I have already had some of my guests ask how to contact her which is the best recommendation one can get.

Catherine was a doll to work with! I was so busy with work and wedding planning, that I kept all communications strictly email, but she made sure to speak with me before my wedding (and I am so glad she did). She eased my nerves and reassured that everything would be perfect (as it was)!

Our flowers were EXACTLY what I wanted and then some. They were the perfect pieces for our event.

I am so glad that we chose Highland Gardener for our special day. Her professionalism, kindness, and true artistic ability are more than I can even describe!

Thank you, THANK you for being so amazing to work with!

I can't say enough good things about The Highland Gardener! Catherine the owner is so sweet and wonderful to work with. I know nothing about flowers. When Catherine and I first met I told her my color scheme and the vibe I was going for and she came up with the rest! She showed me tons of pictures to help me pick out what I wanted and was very flexible when I had changes. She was very responsive in our communications and Catherine even went above and beyond and made origami flowers to go with my centerpieces because that was part of my theme!! The Highland Gardener provided bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and centerpieces for my wedding. They were all beautiful and unique! Catherine doesn't shy away from making something original and fresh. Loved, loved, LOVED my flowers and would absolutely recommend this vendor!

Catherine was extremely helpful in selecting my wedding flowers. She sat with me and took the time to explain different and unique options as I didnt want a bouquet that was the same as every other bride. She pulled together looks that were fresh and "outside the box". I have received many compliments on my wedding flowers even after our wedding day. I would recommend Catherine to anyone I know, Thank you Catherine!
