I am a wedding and event floral designer based in Truckee, CA. I have been passionate about flowers for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Northern California I have been lucky to live in a beautiful environment that inspires my creations. I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, and all of the other fun things our region has to offer. The name Love and Lupines comes from my family’s love of the beautiful lupines that bloom on the shores of Lake Tahoe, as well as so many of our other favorite locations in California.
I have been an award winning wedding and event planner in Truckee for the past 12 years. I found out early on in my wedding career that flowers are my favorite part of a wedding. This inspired me to learn everything I could about floral design. Helping a couple to find their wedding vision and making it come to life is pure joy to me. This joy has lead me to create Love and Lupines Floral Design.
I love to incorporate upcycled materials, vintage pieces, old jewelry and charms, fabric, lace, ribbon, rustic and natural elements into my pieces. These items combined with big beautiful blooms, textural elements, and unusual varieties are what I believe makes a perfect arrangement. I strive to source flowers and other items from local vendors whenever possible.
Attention to detail, organization and great communication are key elements when planning any event. I strive to make these top priorities when working with any client. I’d love to hear about your upcoming wedding or event. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquires.
