DISLIKES: (in a very specific order)

hey babe! my name is heather, i’m so glad you found me! i’m a floral designer and event stylist in portland, oregon with a huge passion for celebrating love and creating beautiful moments and story-telling through floral elements.

______________________________________

i was born and raised in sunny southern california before making my way up to oregon in my teens. my background includes visual merchandising, wedding photography, accessories design for magazines and tv shows and life style blogging.

my journey with flowers has been a long one, but it took me a while to settle in on it. some of my earliest memories of florals & greens come from my grandparents- with helping my grandfather water rows of trees or picking mint, marigolds and garden roses from my grandmothers garden. growing up my mother always tended to a bounty of vegetables and beautiful blooms, which led her to become a master gardener instructor.

my parents live on a small farm in southern oregon and although its in total contrast to my current life in the city it helped helped shape my love for living off the land, farm to table meals, sustainability and keeping things alive.

i’ve found so much happiness in wedding, event & editorial florals by creating magic with my clients and translating that through flowers to set the tone for a beautiful environment.

i’m self-taught and continuously working on my craft, throughly believing that you should do what you want and have fun doing it!
