About Us in Fairbury, IL

Our owner, Nancy,  has had a life-long love affair with flowers and has designed and grown extensive flower gardens for over 30 years on their family farm where she cultivated her signature style and love for the lush garden style, textural arrangements she creates.  In 2011 and 2012, after completing Floral Design Semesters I and II  at Parkland College she opened her flower boutique in Fairbury, Illinois with her husband Wayne.  Growing up, her family teasingly called her “Fancy Nancy” noting her appreciation of beauty and details.  Now her husband jokingly refers to himself as “Plain Wayne” and helps with flower prep and logistics making Plain Wayne and Fancy Nancy a great team working with couples to give them the wedding of their dreams!  In their free time they enjoy spending time with their ten grandchildren.

Only Offering the Best

Fancy Florals by Nancy is a member of the Illinois State Floral Association, and she makes it a priority to attend  conferences and workshops allowing her to offer clients the latest in product and design techniques.  They have both been privileged to be invited to  Washington D.C.  to help create the arrangements for the 2017 and 2018 Congressional Club First Lady’s Luncheon which has been a highlight of their career.   In January of 2018 Nancy attended a floral intensive with Holly Heider Chappel at Hope Flower Farm in Waterford, VA enabling her to become a “Chapel Designer.”   If you are interested in learning more about their past work, take a look at the testimonials page and read first-hand accounts from their clients who have chosen them for The Knot “Best Of Weddings”  2015,  2016 & 2017 and 2018 putting them into The Knot Hall of Fame.

The owner of Fancy Florals, Nancy Zimmerman, is someone I am so grateful I had the opportunity to work with. She is one of the most genuine and caring people I have ever met! Nancy truly goes above and beyond for her brides and was a key component to the success and beauty of my wedding! Nancy listened to my ideas, offered great suggestions, and she created exactly what I had envisioned! She is very detail oriented and her eye for flowers is out of this world! Nancy was amazing, she was very considerate of my budget and answered countless emails in a timely manner, all to ensure my needs were met. My flowers were absolutely gorgeous and so was the quality of her service! I highly recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy!   –  Kara Neisen Roach
