Hi! We are Jenna and Lamar Griffin, and we are so glad you’ve stopped by Gold & Bloom! I do all of the floral designs, but Lamar is a huge part of this team, too. At each event, you’ll see him placing centerpieces, assisting with installations, and other behind-the-scenes fun. As you can see, we added a member to the Gold & Bloom family in April 2017–our baby boy Cooper! Weddings are our favorite, and we’d love to be a part of yours!
There’s a bit of a back story to Gold & Bloom. You probably assume I grew up playing in my grandparents’ garden and have been arranging flowers since I was a young girl. Well, that’s not exactly true.
My first love was teaching. Second grade to be exact. I knew I was called to teach when I was in second grade myself. Sure enough, I went to college and earned my degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught elementary school for four years before starting Gold & Bloom, and two years after that I left teaching to run the business full time, all while staying at home with my newborn baby. It was a big life change, and I’m incredibly thankful for it! I now get to spend my days with Cooper, meeting sweet couples, and playing with flowers. What could be better?
Floral design is like any other art form–every artist has their own style and their unique way of doing things, and no arrangement is exactly like the next. I’m completely self taught, with the exception of a weekend 1:1 workshop with the most talented Katie of Ponderosa & Thyme out in Oregon. That truly was an amazing experience, and I learned so much! View photos from the workshop here.
I really want to design flowers for you.
You and your event matter to me. Your event is going to be one for the books, and it deserves to be adorned with the most beautiful flowers. So go ahead and browse around this little website, complete the bridal inquiry form, and we can start the conversation!
I look forward to hearing from you!
