Thanks for stopping by! Golden Day is a floral studio in Michigan created by Josephine Brown. Our designs are modern, simple and inspired by nature. We believe in doing our part to help our big, giant earth last a little longer. That means Golden Day tries to be as sustainable as possible and avoids using single use plastic, floral foam and other non-renewable junk. Our floral designs use eco-friendly materials to provide you, the client, with sustainable options. We also use all locally grown flowers, whether from our cut flower farm or others in Michigan.
We believe science is real, black lives matter, no human is illegal, love is love and the golden rule always applies. Lastly, flowers are always appropriate.
Josephine // Founder & Creative Lead
Art has always been a big part of my life. I never really had one thing I wanted to be when I grow up, but I always wanted to do different creative outlets as long as I could create with my hands. I graduated with a BFA in graphic design and started out working at marketing agencies with a couple corporate fancy jobs *no jeans allowed*. After some years I relocated to Northern Michigan and worked with smaller design firms, creating brands for several successful startups. Looking for more creative freedom away from a computer – I began baking on the side, which was my introduction into the wedding industry. Baking wasn’t my forever dream, but there was something so special and fulfilling about creating custom, beautiful treats for people. After my wedding in 2015, I kind of because obsessed with the process of event designing and florals. I invested more of my time into learning the in’s and out’s of floral design, and began the journey to where I am now. Along the way I stepped away from baking and began freelance graphic design. I then co-founded a successful wedding planning company in Traverse City (fox+fern events), where I designed weddings for their first 3 years of business. Fast forward to current day – my family settled down and moved back to Mid-Michigan, we found our dream farm and Golden Day was born. My different career fields have brought me a variety of experience and so many amazing opportunities along the way.
No matter the medium I’m working with – my goal is to create thoughtful designs with special details. I believe the best designers are great listeners. Being able to hear your story and create beautiful florals inspired by that is what I love to do most. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to design for your celebration. Thanks for following my journey!
