Owner & Creative Director

My love for flowers began while planning my wedding. My passion for floral design grew after I attended a floral workshop.

Flowers come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, textures and scents, much like people. I am in awe of flowers. Not just because of their colors, and their ability to take your breath away, but because even though they have dirt in their roots, they still grow. They still bloom...

My job as a designer is to create an experience for you that will evoke joyful emotions. I want to see those tears of joy when I hand you your bouquet on wedding day. I want to see you and your guests mesmerized as you enter into a room full of beauty and elegance, like you just stepped into heaven. Creating joyful memories that last a lifetime feeds my soul and fuels my passion. I live for these moments, and that's why I love what I do.

When I'm not busy creating dream events, I'm in mommy mode, creating memories with my husband & kids - Jimi & Kunmi
