About Us

Family-owned sustainable wedding florist in Portland, Oregon. Specializing in wedding floral design and elopement flowers in addition to floral deliveries in the Portland metro area.



We are a husband and wife team with a tiny assistant [our son Zev]. We simply love working with flowers and botanical elements as our art to tell a story and create a cohesive design for any event.

We approach weddings from a new perspective. There are no rules!

Our design philosophy focuses on color (lots of it!), movement and texture using local and seasonal product to create organic and free flowing shapes.


We rely on the Earth to provide the medium for our art, and so we employ sustainable practices in our craft. We are floral foam free, instead we use reusable materials in our designs. We also choose to compost, donate or repurpose our flowers and organic elements following each event. Whenever possible we source from local Pacific Northwest farms and growers. We are committed to continually improving our processes to reduce our footprint.


We believe in equality and inclusivity and choose to work with and support all communities of people. We celebrate ALL love and everyone is welcome at our table.


I am a flower nerd, mama, lover of food and every season in the Pacific Northwest. It is my goal to make this floral design process as meaningful, fun and relaxed as possible. Let’s talk flowers over a meal and collaborate to create something beautiful and truly yours.

Our team wouldn’t be complete without our flower-loving little dude! We are a family business at the heart and it brings us so much joy to share our passion for floral design with this guy. Fun Fact: he can already name over 40 flower varieties!
