Rust & Flourish is an event and design studio based in Oakland, California. A woman-owned and driven business, we are a team with a love of art, texture, color, and plants. We are advocates of the slow-flower movement, striving to use locally sourced, seasonal, and foraged materials. Per our mission statement, we are proud members of the Floret Flowers' Farmer-Florist Collective, supporting our local growers and using our own Oakland grown flora in our products. As a team of artists, we celebrate ingenuity and focus on nourishing the creativity of our clients. Rust & Flourish is available for weddings, special occasion deliveries, social events, and styled shoots. 



Ricci's love of flowers started at a very early age, when she would collage with her mother's garden and Martha Stewart magazines. Her BFA background in Art History and Photography serves as a powerful link to her creations. Ever-evolving, Ricci's aesthetic and inspiration is derived from English antique and vintage, the old masters, the photograph, and of course, seasonal blooms. When she isn't designing, Ricci can be found snacking around with her cat, Binx.
