WEST & ROCK
West represents our love for the West Coast of Florida, our home. Our Rock solidifies the strong foundation we stand on, through our daily life to building beautiful designs for our clients. Our pieces feature ethically handcrafted creations, each designed to be as unique as the muse who uses them.
We are a collective husband & wife team of designers, fabricators and strategists, hell-bent on meaningful creative disruption. Our artistry deviates from the norm and challenges us to keep creating. With a foundation in Special Effects and the beauty event industry, we expanded an extension of our creative capacities for all to celebrate in style.
We’ve spent the last 10 years living in LA when this crew decided to make a way back to our roots & hometown, here in Southwest Florida.
As creatives, most days you'll find us in the studio. All designs are exclusively ours & handcrafted. Our humble studio walls are packed with an eclectic mix of florals, FX prosthetics, sculptural creatures & curiosities from across the seas and around the world.
With 20 years together, as high school sweethearts and 15 years of marriage under our belt we really look forward to being a part of your incredible celebration.
Artists + founders
- Wayne & Brittany
As much as we are passionate about designing impactful events that are personal and unique to each client, we are equally passionate about doing business better and are built on the idea that little things can have a big impact and an opportunity to spread a simple act of kindness. We’re truly rooted in our purpose. While we do many unspoken things for others, we actively repurpose and donate fresh florals through W/R events and other generous donations to Hope Hospice that would otherwise be discarded.
