Thoughtful & Creative Custom Designs

“Floral design isn’t just my “job,” it’s my joy! Even when I’m not designing for an event you can find me hiking and being inspired by nature or gardening and planting specialty flowers to use in bridal bouquets. I’ve chosen a lifestyle that allows me to surround myself with flowers and therefore constantly innovate.  My objective with every client is to thoroughly understand their vision and to bring the very best version of those ideas to life on their wedding day. My philosophy is beauty doesn’t have to break the bank and I love coming up with creative ways of helping my couples save!” – Chas

Modern & Romantic Garden Vibes

“I believe that flowers can make the biggest visual impact on your wedding day. Romantic flowers with beautiful colors, textures, and movement are key elements to my designs. I love to gather inspiration from gardens & the beautiful flowers that are locally grown in the Pacific NW. I work closely with my clients to help bring their vision to life by asking questions and getting as much information as possible. If a client needs extra help,  I’m more than happy to create a floral plan for you. I want every couple to be confident in their selections and excited about their wedding day. As far back as I can remember, flowers have always been one of my greatest joys. They are a constant reminder that life is short and that we should take the time to cherish the simple things in life.” – Jodi
