Amy Burke Designs is a family owned and operated business in South San Francisco California. We are inspired by our clients, the natural world around us, and the challenge and excitement of creating a space and environment that feels unique to each event, be it a wedding, corporate event or other type of celebration. From the initial brainstorming meeting where we create and envision the spaces that will make your event uniquely your own, to the day that everything is delivered and comes to life, our goal is to make this not only an inspirational experience for you but to also help you with any questions or advice that only experience in the field can answer.
A Texas native, Amy’s background in sculpture and art brought her to floral design for the combination of color, texture and organic elements that only nature can conceive and construct. The thrill of creating entire worlds that only last for a day doesn’t hurt either, as well as the challenge of building and designing things that have never been seen or created before.
Any place outside, on a very warm day that starts out doing something active, and finishes with a glass of red wine in my hand.
I think it is a tie between the excitement of coming up with new ideas in the first meeting with a client and seeing the space for the first time after everything has come together in the end. I love so many other parts of the design process too, but the thrill of bringing a two-dimensional sketch or an idea a year in the making to life is something everyone should be able to experience at least once in their lives.
I love to draw, backpack and scuba dive and am a complete Breaking Bad junkie.
Darin is a lifelong Californian with a background in various management roles. While he is still fine tuning his exact title, it lies somewhere in between Chief Schlepper and Director of Superfluous Materials. As the self described “grounded one”, Darin does his best to keep up during frequent brain storming sessions and contributes to the building, transporting, and execution of one of a kind items conjured up in the “anything is possible” mind of Amy.
You can’t beat making first tracks on the mountain on a cold sunny morning or fishing for trout in a crystal clear lake in the High Sierra.
The best part of this job is seeing how sketches and samples are turned into a physical environment that you can see, smell, and touch.
I love the 49ers, I’m lactose intolerant, and a parking spot that allows for a quick exit is far superior to a spot that allows for a quick entry.
