A heart for hospitality


Our team knows what it means to say, welcome - we care about you! Taking that extra step to ensure your day runs smoothly is just one reason our clients value our service!

a passion for service


Character is something you have and service is something that can be taught. However, we know that thinking outside the "welcome" is what takes our clients from start to finish with a seamless day!

an eye for design

We are innovators and designers. We know you want to be heard and to be seen. Differently. Pinterest is great, but we would love to create something special just for you. Inspired by and reflective of you both as a couple and as individuals!

What is Floral Design?

Floral design is so much more than picking out your flowers at the market. It is something that ultimately results in a beautiful arrangement that you carry down the aisle on your special day. It is the element that ties all the different spaces together to create a cohesive design. It is the scent that reminds you of a special moment. It is the simple feeling of wow and peace on your day. It's our joy to create beauty for you on your wedding day. I source unique and unexpected blooms that accent my one-of-a-kind hand gathered bouquets, arrangements and installation pieces that add so much personality and grandeur to your wedding design.

The source is important:

One of my favorite quotes is from Fashion Designer Marc Jacobs, "I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect - they are much more interesting." When sourcing flowers, I look for unique blooms often heading to the flower nursery to view different grasses and foliage to help create an imperfect, perfect that allows your wedding to dance and smile right along with the rest of nature. I always attempt to first source locally or American grown flowers prior to looking globally while mindful of season, quality and design. This way we are supporting local business owners as well as the environment.
