inquire to begin

In addition to her passion for floral design, Marissa is inspired by her love of the outdoors and enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and traveling to new locations to connect with nature.

With both artistry and operational excellence, Marissa executes floral designs that are an extension of her clients’ visions, exemplifying the best in structural, modern, garden-style florals.

Guided by her free spirit, thrilled by the possibility of new explorations, and driven by her desire to forge meaningful connections — Marissa draws her inspiration from the steadfast, yet evolving nature of the natural elements and settings she’s encountered on her travels around the world.

She also attended the Academy of Arts University where she studied photography, dance, and other artistic mediums. Leaving behind a career in product development for startups in the Bay Area, Marissa founded The Wild Fleur Co. in 2020, quickly garnering a roster of prestigious clients and a portfolio of elevated events.

As an adult, Marissa’s love for flowers provided a creative outlet to express her passion, experience healing, and forge deeper connections with her community.

Hailing from a family of entrepreneurs, Marissa Zoetewey was always destined to open her own floral studio and serve clients through inspired florals.

With an aunt who was a florist and a mother who regularly sold her creations at local craft shows, Marissa learned the artistry of floral design, the detail of quality craftsmanship, and the value of forming meaningful connections from those closest to her.
