"Something I have given a lot a lot of thought about and finally am ready to share some exciting news and changes with Lace & Birch!
As I have gotten increasingly busier with florals, with the opening of my flower shop, started a cutting garden, and being over half booked for next year - a stronger passion for being a florist has been developing now for some time and I am ready to make another leap!
I will be no longer be accepting further planning and/or coordination clients! I am so thrilled to work with all of lovely couples that have booked me for planning with their florals next year (nothing changes with those of you!) It has been an amazing ride with planning in the last 7+ years of my career, and I will never forget how I started, how it led me to love + grow in this industry, and helped me learn so much about so many aspects of a couples wedding day (not just the planning). It has truly built a strong foundation for my brand, and my company. This knowledge and experience will continue to be shared with all of my clients to make their wedding the best day ever!
I will however be offering planning consultations and setup options for couples who may just need someone to take care of small personal details like place cards or favours. As always, a HUGE thank you to those who have supported me from the beginning, made me apart of their special day, or are supporting me now! It's time to focus, continue to learn, and work even harder to follow my passion!"
Jill is a double graduate of Seneca College, with an advanced diploma in Fashion Business Management & post-grad with honors in Event Management & Exhibit Design.
In August 2018, she quit her full time job and decided to give this business 100% of her full attention & efforts. Providing floral design, wedding and event planing services, and a variety of unique rentals, she wanted to create a full service company, as well as partnering with many other vendors you may need for your event. Jill has spent a lot of time self teaching and practicing her floral skills, and has also started growing her own flowers which she loves to incorporate into her designs (as well as working with local growers!) Jill has recently become a full time florist, and won in 2 categories for the 2020 Readers Choice Awards by Hamilton Spectator - 2nd place in Best floral designer, and 3rd place for best retail/shopping florist!
Jill recently opened a Flower and Plant shop in the lovely small community of Carlisle, Hamilton. Featuring fresh and dried flowers, plants, locally made products, and a studio space on the top floor.
In her last position before starting her company was at The Kortright Centre; she was able to supervise, setup, execute, and work directly with tons of wedding and corporate clients. Running the social media, along with revamping menus & booking packages continued to strengthen her business skills and passion for the industry.
Getting additional certifications along the way and attending workshops and seminars where possible - Jill loves to stay up to date within the industry, current with trends, and updating her opportunities & knowledge. Set-ups, tear downs, staff management, food service, execution, floral design, social media management, client relations, and marketing - she has done it all!
On her free time, Jill loves to spend time in nature, garden, play with her two pups, go on adventures with her husband, tend to her vast plant collectio and enjoys the little moments with loved ones!"
