Hi friends! I'm Chelsea.
Owner, floral Designer, Gardener, Mama, Simplicity seeker
My favourite childhood memories are summers spent on my Grandparent's farm in Central Alberta. My Grandma's flower garden, a wondrous place of inspiration and colour that I could spend days in! Her love of gardening and all things antique sparked my own passion for flowers and her sweet vintage style inspires me to this day!
Years later, I found myself back in the country not far from their farm, studying Commercial Floristry. In 2005 I graduated with distinction from Olds College. I spent the following years working in flower shops around Calgary. My husband Josh and I married in August 2012. For months I poured over Pinterest, and all the wedding blogs of the time. And then, in the wee hours of the night and morning before our big day, I created the floral designs of my dreams. By the way, that's us in the photo above!
Creating my own wedding florals kindled my interest in wedding design & I fell in love with the planning process and all the fine details! Fern & Frond opened for business in September 2014. Today, I operate Fern & Frond from my studio in the mountains outside of Kamloops, BC. When I'm not busy chasing our two boys & giant puppy around the yard, I can usually be found meeting with couples over coffee, catching a yoga class, or planning a pop up shop!
