Hi, I'm Lauren, the founder and owner of Bloom. I approach floral design with a deep conviction in the power of the senses to form lasting memories. Can you remember the smell of your grandmother's kitchen? The sound of her laughter? The glow of the firefly-lit night in summer?

On your special day, the flowers that you hold, smell and gaze upon will be the textures that form your most deeply-rooted memories. Memories you'll return to when the long winter days turn to spring, and you're reminded of your once young-love. You'll pluck that special flower from your garden, place it just so in your own well-worn kitchen, and vow your love all over again.

Thank you for inviting us to participate in your beautiful story.
