Hybl Fannin Design was founded by Owner and Creative Director Wendy Hybl Fannin. She is a life-long creative and entrepreneur, having owned a graphic design studio, a specialty cut flower business, a botanical print clothing line, and as a mixed-media fine artist.
All of this, combined with her 18 years as Art Director, Producer and Stylist at Hubbardton Forge, the prestigious Vermont decorative lighting company, led her to create Hybl Fannin Design. Combining her creativity, fine aesthetic and production skills to create beautiful, original floral designs and events to help other people celebrate the milestones of their lives is the passion that drives her.
Our event team brings in more creatives who are also artists, jewelers, painters and sculptors. The energy that happens here is pure creative joy.
“My passion for making art turned to floral design about 25 years ago when I started growing specialty cut flowers. Their beauty and simplicity, along with the life and joy these gorgeous blooms gave me, and my patrons, was uplifting and addictive. I would love the opportunity to share my love of flowers and beauty with you for your wedding or event.”
Wendy attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she studied painting, alternative photography and mixed media. She holds a Floral Art and Design Certificate from Pratt Institute, and has taken floral design workshops with some of the industry’s finest designers, including Lewis Miller, Bella Meyer, Emily Thompson, François Weeks, Holly Chapple and Hitomi Gilliam.

Wendy is absolutely amazing! She made every detail of our wedding what we dreamed of. Flowers were absolutely gorgeous and exquisite. And it was easy and fun working with her. During the planning, Wendy listened to my vision attentively, responded to all my questions promptly, and offered advice with great professional knowledge. I was impressed by how organized and detail-oriented she was. Wendy definitely knows how important the day is for us so she took a lot of time to understand and confirm exactly what we wanted. She made everything easy for us, which is very important in that stressful period of time. The results turned out to be stunning! We were so pleased by her work. I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone who wants beautiful flowers as well as a worry-free planning process. Thank you so much Wendy! You made the day the most beautiful of our lives!

I have nothing but good things to say about Wendy. She captured my vision while staying within budget. Working with her was stress free and the flowers, centerpieces, bouquets, everything was just beautiful. I had a few adjustments that she accommodated with no issue at all. If I could do it all again I would absolutely use her!

Wendy was amazing! We were married on a little footbridge over a stream in a Midsummer Nights Dream inspired wedding. Wendy created a floral bower worthy of Titania! Our tables and tents were all gorgeous as well, with iridescent glass lanterns, floral arrangements, and sparkly lights. It was a perfect day! Wendy has a great great talent and eye for giving you exactly what you asked for, but beyond what you imagined. I highly recommend her!

Wendy provided some truly amazing floral design for my wedding this past September! Wendy designed bouquets, boutonnieres, and a large tabletop arrangement for us. She was collaborative and able to work with us to craft floral arrangements that were beautiful and that also fit within our budget. She delivered them to our wedding venue as well. Two thumbs up!

We want to thank you for the beautiful floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonniéres that you made for our wedding day. Not much is more beautiful than fall in Vermont or the River Road Farm venue, and as such we wanted to keep the flowers simple with a chic/rustic flair. Thank you for bringing our floral vision to life and far surpassing our expectations! Every time I look at our pictures I can’t get over how beautiful and perfect the flowers were. Thank you so much for being so wonderful and easy to work with, we truly appreciate it and you.

Wendy was so comfortable to work with. She was so present at River Road Farm during the setup of the tables. She even brought extra flowers and set them out on the bars and in the kitchen area.

I’ve worked with Wendy in various capacities over the past 15 years and found that she is equally talented in art direction as she is in interiors and prop styling. She always has a very clear understanding of what is being “sold” or the story that is being told through the images before she arrives on every shoot. Not only does she consistently show up with the right propping, but she continues to surprise me with unexpected accents and touches that make me say “wow, wish I’d thought of that”. She has a great eye for enhancing a space with accessories and color, a wonderful flare for placement and on top of it all she’s a very talented floral designer. Wendy is a joy to work with and I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great stylist!
