-SHANNON PALLIN | OWNER OR FIORE OF PENSACOLA
What makes your services unique?
“I think that we communicate with our clients whether it is a wedding or a floral order we have a real heartfelt for what the occasion is. In my head I am immediately matching flowers with colors they have in mind, or placement to match the occasion. We are designing it with all of their details in mind which makes our services unique.”
What is the history of Fiore of Pensacola?
“I have always done flowers. Fifteen years ago when we opened we started out in a very small warehouse- that we still use! We have just organically grown over time. Sure enough slowly we just became busier and busier. The great thing is our clients from 15 years ago are still clients of ours today.”
Do you have any tips for brides?
“DIY can be so tricky. We never discourage a bride from doing something she has her heart set on doing herself. However, there is so many things going on that day and for the piece of mind alone hire a professional. I see it, I get the SOS calls, it is worth the investment. Much like you wouldn’t be doing your own food-if you want to really enjoy the day, stress free, hire the right people.”
What is your favorite wedding memory?
“A client of mine and I met when her daughter was 12. 12 years later I did that same daughters wedding. We were able to pack up the store, 7 employees and two giant trucks to New Orleans for a week. It is so nice to have clients from the very beginning and go through all of their life experiences with them.”

“Please come into our shop! We love to have future brides schedule an appointment and get to experience the process first hand.”
