About me

I started this business in 2013, but I’ve been working with flowers all my life. From seeing my grandfather’s pride in his rose garden, to kneeling in the garden while my dad showed me how to plant bulbs, to learning floristry as my mom and I created wedding flowers, I’ve done it all.

I’ve studied wedding floristry with the Floral Design Instutue and have a bachelor’s degree from the horticulture department of The Ohio State University.

When I’m not working on a wedding you’ll find me in the garden tending the dahlias, English roses, and peonies on our three acres. In the winter, I’m usually in the kitchen trying to emulate Guy Fieri.
