Hi, I'm Lauren!
I fell in love with flowers a long time ago. Every summer as a kid, I would enter into our local "Flower Show" (grand prize winners received 25 cents), and one year I convinced my mom to give me my own little garden, working the soil myself -- until, very shortly after, I got tired of it and just wanted the flowers to grow already.
My earliest memory of flowers is watching the sweet pea growing by the back door of my grandma's house, and I still love that sweet, delicate fragrance. It's one of my favourite blooms, and you can bet that if you're getting married in the summer, I'll sneak it into your bouquet.
I am a wife, auntie, sister, daughter, and child of God. I'm an impatient gardener, a food lover, a (very) loud singer, and I love anything green. I'm a total paradox: quite Type A and yet creative, which means that I need to have a cleanly swept studio before I can really start working (and then keep sweeping those leaves and bits off the floor throughout the day -- takes up time, but it really clears my head!).

I believe in the power of a strong marriage and how this affects our families and our society, so being a behind-the-scenes member of a couple's wedding day is an incredible thrill and honour. It's important to me that I pray for each and every one of my couples, for a lifelong marriage filled with happiness and joy, respect and trust, good health and blessing after blessing.
I'm so fortunate to have worked for so many kind, excited, and creative couples. Here's what some of them have said about working with me:
"THANK YOU AGAIN FOR CREATING SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FLORAL EXPERIENCE AT OUR WEDDING. I CAN'T IMAGINE THE LOVE AND ENERGY THAT WENT INTO YOUR CREATIONS. YOU ARE INCREDIBLY TALENTED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK. WINNIPEG BRIDES ARE SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU!"

It's my goal to hear you say, "My bouquet is more beautiful than I could have imagined!" I promise to work hard to do just that.
