I live in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina with my loving husband and our three wonderful sons. My flower journey started with my little family and the purchase of a pumpkin seedling. That seedling's purpose was to teach our young children the joy of gardening and the rewards of hard work. Over the next few years our little garden grew and so did our curiosity for growing new vegetables. In an effort to grow organically, I started looking into plants that would attract beneficial insects which included flowers. By our third growing season, the flowers out numbered the vegetables! Zinnias were the first flowers we grew and for that very reason, I will always have a love for them.
I use to make wedding cakes many years ago and never imagined that someday I would fall in love with flowers, or that it would lead me back to weddings. My love for unique flowers and foliage continues as I forge and cultivate to supplement my floral designs. My true passion is to incorporate seasonal local ingredients into a composition that not only serves as a mere decoration but to hold a meaning. And the hope that ten years from now when my client smells that sweet smell of a gardenia or sees the delicate ruffles of a lisianthus, it will bring them back to that special moment.
Love Story holds so many meanings to me since it was love that led me to the path I'm on now. I also believe that behind every event, whether it be to celebrate a parent, a birth, or a happily ever after, there lies a Love Story.
