Serendipity is a small and blessed and floral design business creating lush, romantic, and whimsical florals for events and gatherings!

How I got into weddings: It started with non-profit event planning straight out of college…which led to wedding planning…which ultimately led to floral design where my love of flowers and creating gorgeous florals was able to flourish!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The tradition! From the drinks to the food to heirlooms being passed down, old lace wrapped around a bouquet, bow ties and dancing, I love it all.

Favorite Southern city? Charleston, SC
Early bird or night owl? Early bird!
