As the lush hills of Delaware County grow in popularity as a site for weddings, barns are being converted into venues and the small-town businesses are flourishing. Mischell Wade has run Wade's Towne & Country Florist in Stamford for just shy of a decade. "My business keeps growing every year," she says. "Barn weddings are up-and-coming in this area; 2017 was my biggest year ever for weddings." She works with couples to develop a budget and a design concept, and offers full-service deliveries to regional venues. Wade has always had a green thumb. She worked at florists all throughout high school, before majoring in plant science at SUNY Cobleskill. After graduating, she worked for many years in interior design and landscape design. While these professions honed her keen aesthetic, she felt something was missing. "I wanted to do something finer and more artistic, on a smaller scale," she says. So she returned to floral design. "It's a talent I always had, and I just evolved with it." Wade has extensive flower gardens at her house, which she cuts from in the summertime to add local variety in her shop. For the DIY curious, Wade also offers seasonal and holiday-themed workshops and private classes for all ages. (607) 652-2500
