MEET OUR LEAD
Hi, I am Allison, the owner/lead floral designer here at Gentle Events. I'm so happy you stopped by! My career in the floral industry began in my home country of Jamaica, when I opened my first flower shop at the age of 21. Flowers move me, and intrigue me. Through flowers, I work to express the personalities and sensibilities of my clients and create the true essence of their wedding/event day.
I am grateful for a career that continues to bring me joy, and that I can share my lifelong love of flowers with others. I am also a Wedding and Event Planner and Designer, certified through the Preston Bailey's Signature course. Although I have a love for planning and event design, my true passion is floral designing. I am dedicated to creating lush floral designs, and offering the ultimate experience for my clients and their guests. I get an overwhelming sense of accomplishment when our client’s express satisfaction or excitement about a floral piece, or room we have designed.
A Few Things About Me
• My favorite flower is the Phalaenopsis orchid, as they represent love, luxury, beauty and strength.
• I believe in "service”. Giving back to my community allows me the opportunity to help build better lives and stronger communities. At Gentle Hearts Foundation, we re-purpose flowers from weddings and events to bring smiles to people in nursing homes, hospices, cancer treatment centers and shelters. In addition, we create care packages to assist the homeless and less fortunate, who are in need of food, hygiene products, and basic necessities. A portion of our sales is donated to this cause.
Take a look at my collections, and let the magic begin!
