I DREAM MY PAINTING, AND THEN I PAINT MY DREAM.

Pablo Picassco

 

At Ash + Oak we hand pick all our flowers from the San Francisco flower market, using the freshest flowers each season has to offer. We do not import any flowers as each season has it's own beautiful flowers to choose from. All of our arrangements are custom designed to fit your vision. We take pride in creating UNIQUE lush arrangements with design influences from ikebana and modern styles. We design romantic and soft to wild, colorful and bohemian to edgy, modern looks — and everything in between!

Don't have a vision but want something unique and beautiful? We'd love to help. Creating inspiration boards, taking field trips to the flower market and arranging mock bouquets are a great way to find inspiration and edit ideas. We will work with you every step of the way to bring your vision to life.

We are not only passionate about flowers, we believe in your wellness on your big day. Hiring us gives you and your family/friends to be present and enjoy the day with each other. We don't want anyone running around trying to set up centerpieces and placing candles on the tables while missing those heartfelt moments before you walk down the aisle. 

We support LGBTQ! We believe love is for everyone and we are here to help you embrace your love. 

Ash + Oak is far from traditional, however if you are looking for a spin on something new but what a touch of old school we are always willing to dream innovated ideas. 

Going in to our 6th season we are now located in two locations. Our main studio is in Oakland, CA and our mini studio and workshop space is in Nevada City, CA.  Ash + Oak will travel any where for you event or wedding.  So far, we to traveled to Vermont, Mexico, Washington and Oklahoma to design one of a kind floral art. Our bags are pack and we are ready to hit the ROAD!

Ashley Mueller
Designer and Art Director

Ashley was born in the Pacific Northwest. Her love for the nature, hiking and exploring was the start to her floral design career. Ashley attended the Art Institute of Portland where she studied fashion. Once she left the beautiful Northwest and moved to Oakland she realized her love for fashion was not as strong as she hoped. Pondering the idea of career paths she quickly remember her favorite job. In 2014 she worked in a local market where she looked over fresh flowers. It was no shock that working with natural beautiful plants was meant to be. Ashley reached out to her favorite floral design studio in the Bay Area for an internship. Quickly she was learning and loving every moment and Ash + Oak began. When Ashley is not working with flowers she is hiking, paddle boarding and thrifting for unique wedding  and event decor pieces. 

Katie Reisman
Designer and Marketing

Katie was born and raised in L.A.  She moved to the Bay Area after studying marketing in Canada. Katie wondering through a few careers until she stumbled into Ash + Oak's 6 month pop up in the Tenderlion of SF. Only a few seconds into the interview Katie and Ashley quickly become a team. Katie brings the business side Ash needed but her true love is behind the flowers working her magic. 

Wiley and Slim
Studio Dogs 

Wiley and Slim are Ashley's two Chihuahua. You will find them laying around the studio and giving the crew mental support during long wedding weekends. They both love flowers and plants and much as Ash + Oak. During their morning walks they make many spots to smell the beautiful roses. You may find them running around the studio or in Ash + Oak's Instagram feed/stories.
