"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, and started a cutting garden - 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. 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!"
In August 2018, I quit my full time job and decided to give this business 100% of my full attention & efforts. As of recently, I have gone full time into focusing on florals, instead of planning. I have spent a lot of time self teaching and practicing floral skills, investing in education, and also started growing my own flowers this year and love to incorporate into designs (as well as working with local growers!) My shop recently 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! And even more recently has been nominated for best on Hamilton 2021!
Getting additional certifications along the way and attending workshops and seminars where possible - I love to stay up to date within the industry, current with trends, and updating opportunities & knowledge whenever I can.
In my last position before going full time with the business (Kortright Centre), I was able to supervise, setup, execute, and work directly with tons of wedding and corporate clients. Running the social media, along with revamping booking packages continued to strengthen my business skills and passion for the industry. I have an advanced diploma in Fashion Business Management & post-graduate with honours in Event Management & Design.
On my free time, I love to spend time in nature, the garden, go on adventures with my husband and our two pups, and tend to my vast plant collection.
