Sharon's design journey began in 1996 with her training at a fine Beverly Hills studio catering almost exclusively to celebrity clientele. From that point she hit the ground running, creating everything, from enormous event displays to delicate bridal bouquets as she studied and worked under Los Angeles' most talented designers. Her fine arts training since age six came to good use, and she began to experiment on her own to create truly unique florals, all the while freelancing with the biggest designers in Los Angeles and San Diego. In 2005 she returned to San Diego after a long European design study to launch Organic Elements, offering the skills she had learned from the world's finest designers. In 2008 her journey came full circle when her Los Angeles wedding was published in The Bride and Bloom, going back to the city where it all began. Today she takes great pride in creating weddings that are equally noteworthy, often published, for the city's most discerning clientele.

Meredith, too, came from a fine arts background, which she later developed into such areas as floral design, fashion, and photography.

Today, her discerning eyes and organizational skills oversee general production as well as on-site coordination. Meredith is another undisputed talent which the team could not do without.
Levi joined the company early on, bringing with him the experience of a true apprenticeship, from novice to master. Levi learned about the foundations of the trade at an early age to truly understand every aspect of design, and today has yet to be challenged by anything he can't handle. His full command of the situation and excellence at design are some of the many reasons Organic Elements is lucky to have him as a team designer.
