Kelsey Rae Smith- Owner + Creative Director
I was born and raised a California girl, with some roots in Connecticut and a burning desire to lay some roots overseas. I’m a firm believer that Paris is always a good idea. You may find me frequenting our Saturday’s Farmers Market, waiting patiently in line for some authentic French chocolate croissants or snagging some eucalyptus and ranunculus, because, why not. Oh, and I’m a self-proclaimed connoisseur of sangria and donuts. Need I say more?
My passion for design fuels me to create, challenge myself, and ultimately pull off some insanely pretty weddings and events! Getting to know my couples and their love story is the best part of my job. And I secretly get super excited when we all become best friends!
Anthropologie could literally consume me. Nicholas Sparks novels fuel the hopeless romantic in me. Flowers make my heart happy. And quaint coffee shops are my thing.
I am an HGTV addict, an avid Free People shopper and a wanderluster. Let’s adventure!
I am a believer in Christ. My soul was forever touched by the trafficked women I got to meet and work with on a missions trip to Fiji. It was there that I knew I wanted to help women learn their self-worth and know what healthy relationships are all about.
I value love… simply, everything that encompasses love.
So enough about me, I can’t wait to hear about you!
