My love of all things wedding lead me to a career as a retail florist where I worked on as many weddings as I could get my hands on. After learning from the best designers in the city I founded Purple Peony in 2008 so I could continue to work with the Brides that I loved while raising my brand new family. As a studio florist, Purple Peony books only a select number of weddings each season to ensure each couple can count on me being there personally from Consultation all the way to delivery of bouquets and set up of table centres. I love big blooms and even bigger bouquets and my focus is on designing you the most fitting florals of the highest quality.
I’ve always loved weddings, even as a small child. The elegance of the ladies, the excitement of the families and the unique details of each celebration often get me a little misty eyed. Some of my most favourite memories are of “visiting” weddings in Steinbach with my beloved Oma during summer sleepovers. At the time I had no idea what we were actually doing was crashing the various celebrations around her small town. I just loved going to The Good Will to pick up a second hand dress (because my mom only packed play clothes) and getting that all important look at The bride.
I am a wife and a momma to three little wild things. There is nothing I love more than to be outside playing with my littles or to get my hands dirty doing home renos, in my garden and of course at my design table with a fist full of flowers.
Purple Peony is currently booking for 2017 with a limited number of dates still available. Booking for the 2018 season will open in fall of 2016.
