How did you get into the business?

I grew up in a floral family. My grandfather came to New Jersey from Holland and started a wholesale flower farm! I swore I wouldn’t touch flowers until much later in life when I graduated highschool since that had been my summer job! When I was graduating from college and trying to figure out my path- I started working at a flower shop here in Nashville and the rest is history.


What is your favorite part of a wedding day/event day?

Giving the bride her bouquet or watching her see the reception space for the first time!


What does a typical wedding day look like for you/the whole team?

We come into the studio and talk through the day whether are having one event or multiple- We will break into teams and talk through what team will be handling what aspect of each wedding- Then we will load flowers and head to the venue. Typically we will start with what guests would see first and work our way back just in case we come into a time crunch- But most often we have to adapt to what is ready for us to place or design. Once we finish the setup we break until we have to either do a flip from ceremony to reception or come back at the end of the night to strike.

What would be your dream event to design for be? 

We are loving all the color lately with fun installations throughout the space but we would love to design any fun destination weddings in amazing locations!

Who celebrity would you most like to be hired by to create flower arrangements?

 Taylor Swift hands down. We just did Taylor inspired arrangements on our Tik tok and it was SO great!


If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go? 

That is a toss up between Montana (my wedding location!) and a tropical hut overlooking clear water!

What is your favorite type of arrangement to create? 

Forever and always the bridal bouquet- It is my special little moment.

We want to give a special thank you to Lauren over at Lauren Marie Atkinson again for her awesome responses. If you’re thinking about florals for your wedding or another important event soon, consider checking their team out!
