Golden Thistle Design
Wedding Florist Serving the Blowing Rock & Boone, NC Area


Our mother-daughter team specializes in creating floral designs that realize the beauty of the event as you envision it.  We consider it our duty to help you achieve your unique wedding  - making it a reflection of you and your story. Our style is very naturalistic and derives its inspiration from the beauty of the mountains and the soft lines found in nature. ​We believe that flowers should speak to your heart, kindle a sentiment, and awaken a beloved memory.

Lead Designer ​​
and Owner

My name is Hannah Hunt and I am the owner and  designer behind Golden Thistle Design.  I have been married to the love of my life for 29 years, am mother of three amazing children and grandmother of one.  I am inspired by Art Nouveau, Naturalism, and French Design.  I love Earl Grey Tea, all things British and French, and of course Jane Austen. I also love that my business allows me to work with my daughter, who is studying floral design.

My husband is a native of Blowing Rock and Boone, where we met and were married in the Daniel Boone Native Gardens in 1989.  After retiring from 24 years of service in the United States Air Force, we have returned, to settle down and enjoy both the mountains and grandchildren. The High Country of North Carolina has a vibrancy and life that is unique to this area.  We are proud to call it home.

 After years of planning events and designing flowers for friends, family, and church, I decided to formally study floral design.  It is through Golden Thistle Design that I can share my passion for all things lovely with you.


My name is Erin Sydney​​. In addition to apprenticing as a floral designer with my mom, Hannah Hunt, I am a ballerina, dance teacher, and mama {to sweet Emmelia Aria}.   I am inspired by the mountain air of my home here in Boone, NC and am always learning from God's creation in all the ways it moves and sounds. Peonies and Earl Grey Tea are my motivation.
