I’m Chelsea, and I’m so glad you’re here!
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!
