Kelly Jo

Creative Floral Director

Planning a wedding includes so many details; it often becomes cloudy and overwhelming before you see some clarity.  It is my goal to help you create a vision. Deciding the flowers that are perfect for your wedding should not be painstaking or difficult. I love making each wedding its own and as unique and special as the Bride planning it.

Why Floral Design? Kelly’s love of flowers started on a family vacation to Butchart Gardens in British Columbia, Canada. She was 6 years old and was awestruck by the beauty of the plants and the unique nature of each flower.


In High School, Kelly competed in Floriculture for Carson Valley FFA, which grew her knowledge of floral design, and prompted her to attended the Floral Design Institute in Portland, Oregon.


Kelly graduated in 2005 as a Certified Floral Designer and in 2012 became a Certified Wedding Floral Specialist. She also has a background in Art and Interior Design

Kelly has lived in Gardnerville for 29 years and loves having Tahoe and Reno as a playground. Weekend nature vacations inspire her work.


I would love to further discuss your floral design!

I LOVE my job. My work allows me an avenue to express my artistic vision, as well as, an opportunity to convey my Client's ideas. I love texture, color, and the unexpected element. I love being inspired by nature. Someone else may look at a stick and see just a stick, but to me it might be the inspiration for my next centerpiece.
