For over 10 years my husband and I lived in Kansas City where I co-owned and operated Hitched Planning + Floral, a wedding coordination and floral company. I've always had a passion for all things floral and design, and my business partner excelled in planning, so we decided to innovate the market and start up a business doing both. This model allowed us to plan and execute events that were both beautiful and visually stunning as well as organized and smooth. Through the years and hundreds of events later, our passion and attentive customer service earned numerous awards and landed us in publications such as KC Weddings, The Knot, Style Me Pretty and the Ruffled Blog.

With the birth of our 2nd child, my husband and I decided to move back home, closer to family and friends. My vision of not only being able to design with, but grow unique and sustainable flowers soon came to life and Farmer + Florist was born. 

As a member of both the Farmer-Florist Collective and the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, my hope along with others, is that the request for fresh, local flowers, free of chemicals and pesticides, will only continue to gain a greater following.
