Meet The Lily Crew
Our Experienced Wedding & Floralist Team
The Marmalade Lily began as a part-time creative hobby for the owner, Laura, and quickly progressed into a thriving floral and event venue to share the beauty and creativity of floral design with others. The venue is set on our 9-acre flower farm with a pond and barn. Guests love attending events here, and we always see them meandering around the gardens with their hors d’oeuvres in hand.
Our couples love to scatter hi-tops, lawn games, photo booths, and vintage furniture throughout the many little flower gardens. We’ll meet with you for personalized consultations at least twice (and once for other special events) to customize your floral designs, floor plans, and anything else you need assistance planning. Hosting special events for loved ones doesn’t often happen in life, and we want to treat you like family and create an event for you that’s super fun and well-planned! Our in-house floral design is the icing on the cake of all of this…we have a vested interest in making them spectacular!
“The Marmalade Lily began as a part-time hobby for me as a homeschool mom and quickly progressed into a thriving floral and event venue to share the beauty of floral design with others. The best part for me is meeting with the clients and getting my hands dirty in the ground planting new flowers. I have five grown children, 3 grandchildren, and a fantastic husband. My business is also my ministry. I have a heart for marriages staying together and always share my wisdom for a strong and happy marriage.”

MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA
Since The Marmalade Lily began, I have genuinely adored every day I have worked here alongside The Lily Crew! Whether designing an ad for The Knot magazine, creating a custom hairpiece for a bride, or collaborating with a fabulous vendor for a new workshop, the variety, and creative opportunities are bar none.
There’s nothing sweeter than seeing a bride’s wedding day vision come to life through the process! Aside from that, one of my absolute favorite parts of my job is watching the Lily Crew grow and thrive in their giftings while watching them come together to make our workplace thrive! It truly is a blessing to be a part of this team at TML!
When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending all the time I can get with my two little ones! We love to take walks, explore new playgrounds, and find yummy ice cream places! I also love rearranging my home, using what I have to make it feel new being showcased in different spaces! I am known for enjoying a good afternoon nap from time to time!
Lead Floral Designer
People and flowers are two of my favorite things (coffee is a close contestant, though), so I love that I get to work with both in my role here at The Marmalade Lily. It is such an honor to walk the flower journey of their wedding with each bride, and to help bring their vision to life. Creating and designing for their special day is such a treasure and I’m thrilled I get to do it with such an amazing team here at TML.
One of my favorite childhood memories is picking flowers during school recess, making bouquets and flower crowns. Fast forward, with 20 years of floral industry experience, I’ve landed myself here The Marmalade Lily. It has been wonderful working alongside the talented Lily Crew and all the beautiful landscape. I love seeing and creating flower dreams come true to life.
Floral Design Assistant
I recently moved back to my hometown here in Ohio after several years of living in Texas. I am so excited to be working with this wonderful crew of talented floral designers at The Marmalade Lily while surrounded by all the gorgeous gardens at the farm. My favorite part about being a designer is helping to bring someone’s dream day to life with creativity and the natural beauty of flowers.
