About Page




I'm Tina Barrera, owner of The Special Event Florist. I have been in business since 1998 at the ripe old age of 22. After dabbling in a few jobs in the event industry, I tried floral design and was instantly hooked.

I do not advertise. St. Louis is a very small community. I am very fortunate that I worked strictly from word of mouth referrals from previous clients, wedding planners, photographers, event venues and adoring family members. I do around 80 weddings a year and I am so very thankful for all my clients who continue to refer me.

I do work from a home based studio but that doesn't hinder our ability to deliver for you! We are a talented team of designers and many other hands for delivery and set up to ensure your day goes smoothly. 

Wedding design can be very demanding with hours worked. I have chosen to work from home so I can take small breaks throughout my day to spend some time with my three boys. You may see them helping out on weekends too.

I look forward to meeting with you and talking about your special event.


Thanks and happy planning!
