We are Krista & Briana, twin sisters and owners of Gavita Flora. We created our company in 2011 as a means of expressing our passion for art, floral design, event planning and interior design. It is our joy and honor to help our couples create the wedding of their dreams.  We appreciate simple, intentional design, with clean lines, soft color palettes, and of course, beautiful and romantic florals. 

Our Story

Briana, our lead Event Designer, takes pride in conceptualizing the look and feel of the event as a whole. She is passionate about gaining a deep understanding of her client's wedding style and vision, and creating a design concept that consists of timeless, thoughtfully curated details. 

When she's not designing beautiful weddings, Briana enjoys spending quality time with her partner and their dog, taking photos, hosting, and decorating her home in Aptos, CA.

Briana Gaughan

Krista, our lead Floral Designer, has acquired over 15 years of experience in the floral design industry. She specializes in garden-style arrangements that feel romantic, natural yet refined, and possess a relaxed sophistication. She takes a holistic approach when creating the floral design concept, considering how each aesthetic detail works in harmony with one another. 

In her free time, Krista enjoys decorating her home in Aptos, CA, spending quality time with her husband, Mario, visiting with her friends and family, and enjoying the peaceful, natural beauty of her coastal surroundings.
