I can never thank you all enough for placing your trust in Freeport Floral the past 18 years. I am honored and humbled that I have been a part of your many important moments and milestones:
- welcoming your babies
- supporting your student academics, athletes, and artists
- celebrating birthdays
- final tributes to your loved ones
- and weddings…allll the weddings!
I can never thank you enough, my past team in the shop, my vendors and friendors, and my family, for such love and support.
I am retiring Freeport Floral and will not be taking on any additional floral work in 2022. Follow my Instagram and Facebook page as more information on my inventory and building will be announced there.
With much gratitude,
Michele Schulzetenberg is Freeport Floral’s Owner and Designer. With a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design from St. Catherine’s University, Michele’s keen sense of design principles are evident in everything she creates. She worked in visual display for Herberger’s and Dayton’s Department Stores through college and eventually landed a “real” job for a large commercial printer where she developed solid business relationships with all of her customers: small storefronts to Fortune 500 companies. And then one day in 2003, on a whim, she enrolled in a few night-classes in floristry…and discovered her favorite medium: flowers!
Michele (city-girl with small-town heart) returned to Central Minnesota in 2003, opened Freeport Floral and Gifts, and built a solid business based on exceptional customer service and exceptional floral design. In 2014, Michele decided to focus completely on her ever-growing wedding aspect of the business, discontinued daily flower shop retail flowers, and changed the business to Freeport Floral Wedding and Event Design Studio. She lives in Freeport with her husband, Brian, their black lab, and her infamous Freeport Floral shop-cat “Kitty”.
Michele loves flowers and she loves weddings. She can’t wait to meet you and help your wedding day vision come to fruition.
