July 1st, 2003 brought a strategic change to a local third generation
Marietta business. Ash-Hanson Flowers and Wedding Innovations ceased
operations in the downtown retail shop and discontinued servicing
customers with daily delivery of flower arrangements.
Ash-Hanson moved back to the original 1923 location
across from RJF International Corporation in Oak Grove. "This
customized facility was designed and remodeled to enhance the services
of bridal coordination and floral design for weddings, parties,
corporate functions and special events." says Marcia Stewart,
granddaughter of the original founders.
This area of the business has grown tremendously through the years
and has become a large part of day-to-day business operations. "We
have been involved in over 3200 weddings and hundreds of corporate
events," Stewart continues. "At this time, we have chosen
to specialize. In 1923, Ash-Hanson began selling vegetable and flowering
plants and that was what the people wanted. However, over time,
we have continually changed and enhanced services for our customers
who tell us they want wedding, corporate, and special event services."
With many floral shops in the area to service the daily requirements
of customers, specializing is one way to make sure that the family
business maintains traditional quality and service along with loyalty
to corporate and bridal customers. At the new location, Ash-Hanson
Flower Shop and Wedding Innovations continues to service customers
by appointment only.
Marcia and Tim Stewart and the Staff of Ash-Hanson wish to thank
all of its loyal customers for their patronage and hope to see all
of you as we service those special events in your lives. If you
have any questions, please call 376-2679 and let us know how we
can help you in the future.
