Region's Top Wedding and Event Professional
Sally is the granddaughter of the company founder, Mrs. Irene Welborn Herrington. She began helping her grandmother at Welborn Floral Company at the age of 5 years old, during the Christmas Open House season and continued to do so every holiday thereafter. Now, as the owner of the company, Sally continues her grandmother's legacy serving Owensboro and the Tri-State Community.
After majoring in Art and Design in college, Sally spent two years in Atlanta, GA designing for EventScapes, a large-scale wedding and corporate event design company, whose clients included Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Americasmart and Sony. In 2003 she returned to Welborn Floral Company with the knowledge and experience she gained in Atlanta, which led to the creation of our events division. She has designed multiple events for the Kentucky Derby, the World Equestrian Games, the Deaconess Foundation and more. Sally brought with her a contemporary, creative vision for the future of the wedding and events industry in Owensboro and the surrounding area.
Sally's creativity and passion for wedding and event design are what make her one of the region's top wedding and event professionals.
