Rachel Trimarco was born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn. She graduated from Cornell University with a BA in Economics & Management and a minor in Communications. Prior to founding Bride & Blossom in 2008, Rachel wore various hats in financial sales, public relations and television news production.

It was after planning and meticulously executing her own wedding in 2008 that Rachel was inspired her to pursue floral design professionally.  Uninspired by local florists, she went ahead and assembled a team and worked directly with distributors to bring her floral décor vision to life. When she got back from my honeymoon, her venue coordinator called  saying several brides were interested in using “her florist”!

With her combined business acumen, production experience, and flair for design, Rachel saw the perfect opportunity to start her own business, and Bride & Blossom was born.

Rachel resides in NYC with her husband, Michael, and two little girls, Gabriella & Gianna.
