Meet The Gals of Moxie

Amy McCord - Owner / Liam Neeson of Weddings
Amy's Bio:
  • Flower whisperer.
  • Traveling gypsy.
  • Lover of bitey puppies, goats, nachos, and fanny packs.
  • Wedding Planner.
  • Spray-tan and canned wine enthusiast.
  • Smegil's Mom.
With planning over 800 weddings, Amy is a wedding expert.  She gets it. She gets YOU.  She knows the importance of having a stress free wedding and that's the mind behind Moxie.

Amy is owner of Flower Moxie and Simply Sisters Weddings, a business she co-owns with her clever sister! 

Amy’s Resume:

  • 1986-2000- Was an exceptionally mediocre student.  Never had name-brand clothes, but received some hand-me-downs from a cousin. When they didn’t fit, I cut the tags and sewed them onto my mom-made jeans. Thus beginning my life as an avid ‘Do-It-Yourself-er.’
  • 2000- Saw Bone Collector and decided to get a Forensic Science degree. 
  • 2004- Graduated and realized I didn’t like picking maggots off of dead bodies.
  • 2004-2006- Moved to Austin, Texas to play my guitar and sing with my handy biochem degree. Met Matthew McConaughey, he smelled ripe, folks. I was not discovered.
  • 2006- Moved back to Oklahoma, got corporate job, did not enjoy life when my boss would fart in my cubical.
  • 2008- Heard about a chapel going for sale.  Mum bought it.  Sister and I started a wedding planning and floral biz.
  • 2008- Our first wedding. We earned $200 dollars…..we were the planners, waitresses, florists, family counselors, marriage counselors, bartenders, and plumbers. My sister had a panic attack in the kitchen of our little chapel…my back hurt for 2 weeks afterwards.
  • 2008- present- We are now seasoned wedding planners. We average 45 weddings a year due to our stellar service and willingness to tackle anything….including a wayward bridesmaid.
  • 2013- The idea of Flower Moxie fell out of the sky while I was thinking about how much I loved wedding florals and truly adore teaching people how to do them. Flower Moxie was born. I didn’t have an epidural.

Tiff's Bio:
My girl Tiff DIYs her own spray tans while watching Golden Girls, runs a side hustle jewelry company Stella Grey Studio, AND is painfully generous to strangers over email. SO. It was an easy move to bring her aboard the Moxie team.
 

• First met Amy McCord on a girl’s trip – knew bestie-hood was inevitable when we each bought the same XXXL “aint-nobody-getting-play” sweater blanket.

• Met “the real” Amy McCord on a trip to Spain at the bottom of several glasses of sangria AND under the false pretense of Amy actually knowing Spanish.

• Master of high-level accounting while listening to complicated-ass podcasts.

• Makes a frownie face whenever Britney is played but DOES exercise tolerance.

• Roasts own coffee but stays humble from years of harrowing mall jobs.
Morgan Moran - Content Editor
Morgan's Bio:
  • Creative Writer.
  • Snarky Facebook Poster.
  • Deep Sea Creature Googler (seriously, look up blob fish – I dare you not to think of the comic Ziggy).
  • Hails from Wisconsin
  • Married to a cheeky British husband and has three non-British cats

Morgan's Words: The universe insisted Amy and I know one another. One day at work, a co-worker burst into my office demanding to know if I've heard of Flower Moxie. I misheard and thought she said Flower Nazi. I was concerned.

Anyway, this mother-of-the-bride was convinced that I would "get a kick" out of the prose, and that I needed to know this girl. I was immediately fascinated.

Former forensic scientist who plans weddings and arranges flowers and liberally uses the phrase "Bend and Snap" while drinking Pinot from a wine bladder? Is this a real person? Does she have a femur sitting on her mantel beside her pot of succulents?

I had to know. I emailed and said something dorky like "You funny" and somehow that evolved into a Facebook friendship and social media content partnership that has quite literally lit up my life.

Amy is such a talented, committed, generous, humble-as-dirt (but pretty-as-a-peony) lady. Her brides and wedding parties adore her, and you will too!


Alison Fleck- Custom Designs

Alison's Bio:

Unwrap a Werther’s Original people – it’s story time. When I first started Flower Moxie, I must’ve sent my web guy Alison’s website 36 times and he was like I GET IT, YOU WANT TO BE JUST LIKE HER. Side note, my site didn’t look a wink like hers, I think out of his own spite.  

At this point, I didn’t know Alison. She could have been a cheese-hater. But we had a very serendipitous encounter at wholesale a few months later. I saw her in all her glory – 9 months pregnant and very kind when I shouted at her: “HI! I’M AMY MCCORD, I'M A HUGE FAN OF THE WAY YOU HANDLE YOUR RANUNCULUS. ALSO, I JUST LEARNED HOW TO ZIP TIE BOUQUETS AND IT WAS A GAME CHANGER SO DO YOU WANNA BE FRIENDS??!?!” 

I assume she was hormonal and felt sorry for me, so we exchanged numbers and have been the best nerdy flower friends ever since. 

Here’s more about Alison: 
• Started out as a Zoology major and graduated with a degree in Interior Design. Her work at construction and architecture firms featured a fresh fusion of indigenous animal dung pottery—I’m kidding. She’s a legit designer.
• Had a job as a floral assistant in college – decided to meld her love of design, space and hands-on floral work to create her own custom event floral studio: Juniper Designs
• Juniper Designs is a wild success- published in Martha Stewart, Magnolia Rouge, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, and Junebug Weddings!
• Had the babies. Wanted to keep her arms in flowers and her head and heart with her family – SO SHE JOINED MOXIE!!!!!! SUCK IT, WEB GUY! (Also I still need you to maintain my website xoxo.) 
• Dedicated to breaking the stigma of the DIY bride/wedding (preach girl).  
• A wine tooth that is second to one. 


Mary Frances- Order and Wholesale Management

Mary Frances's Bio:

I met Mary Frances (celeb name M-Fran) when she was my clever sales rep at Mayesh. She may look and sound sweet BUT M-FRAN DON'T CUT HER TYLENOL IN HALF. I knew she was hardcore when she Ubered to work in Houston’s, like, only ice storm ever to ensure my Moxie bride’s flowers got out the door. 
 
M-Fran totally ruined my day when she mentioned moving to Mississippi for her husband’s new job. But instead of directing my misery at a 6-case of Fuzzy Navel, I snatched her up (perhaps unwillingly) to complete the Moxie girl gang. LOOK FOR US AT ACAPELLA NATIONALS UNDER THE NAME “STALK ROCKERS.”

• Has a degree in Horticulture with a minor in Floral Management, with experience in retail flower shops, weddings, events and wholesale.
• Worked as a designer as HotHouse Design Studio- a kickass, highly published event floral studio!
• Favorite flower trend is Tropical Nouveau because it’s way better than Arctic Old-eau.
• Mother to sheepadoodle, Ophelia; lover of man buns. 
• Danced with her favorite unnamed hottie celeb (!) at her cousin’s wedding.
