As a child you could always find me either playing in the gardens, in the field with our sheep and goats, or competing at horse shows and gymkhanas.  In Spring and Summer I would help with the family business in the greenhouse and gardens.  When I left for college, I decided to study biology (with a couple art courses thrown in to satisfy my creative needs). Even though I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted my future to be, it seemed to fit my love of nature and animals.  After college I wound up working in a veterinary hospital in Saratoga, and loved every second of it. 

In 2012 I was offered a job at a local law office and decided it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Even though an office job wasn’t for me, I obtained skills that would eventually become completely necessary to run a successful business. 

In 2013 I planned my garden wedding at our family farm and married my best friend.   That next summer we welcomed our baby boy and I knew I couldn't go back to the office every day.  At that same time, one of my very best friends from college asked me to do her wedding flowers (knowing I dabbled in it here and there).  At that moment, the stars aligned and I knew this was my answer to incorporating my biology background, art background and office training.  Little did I know, it would turn into a deep-seated passion that has continued to grow with every wedding we do. 

I have a NEED to constantly learn and get better, and I find it so amazing and refreshing that my clients continually give me the inspiration to do this.  I am obsessed with looking for fresh ideas and creative ways to showcase the beauty of flowers and nature.  I have an annoying habit of paying attention to every detail, ensuring the outcome is the best I can do no matter the size of the wedding.  Every.single.wedding I am so excited to create and get started on, to hopefully produce an outcome that our clients have dreamed about.  Each "off-season"  I look for workshops where I can learn, become better, and find even more inspiration through floral designers who've traveled the world.  I have been one of the lucky ones to find and love my best friend, start a family, and have a career that feeds the soul continuously.
