Hi, I am Gina. Well, Gina Thresher AIFD EMC. I have a floral problem. In the past 8 years I have come to be a little obsessed with them. I can’t tell you I grew up picking daisies or in my grandmother’s garden. I mostly was a sciencey, play in the dirt, travel the globe kinda kid. I was on track to be an invertebrate biologist...I did however, fall madly in love with flowers in part when I said my own vows to my husband. I found my calling and got married all in the same day. It was the best day ever! I had basic floristry training 8 years ago to undertake the ultimate job of my own wedding florals. I was a little nuts to say the least.
But, since then, I have traveled the country and internationally for workshops, symposiums, freelancing, and other amazing floral opportunities. I achieved my national accreditation with the American Institute of Floral Designers, and am also a member of the prestigious Chapel Designers, and completed my European Masters Certificate in floristry. I love to teach, share and educate. Check out my new education page for private classes, online classes, a podcast, speaking engagement and much more!
I love designing, everyday designs for that someone special, or events in life, but weddings are special and will always hold a spot in my heart. There is nothing better than seeing two people so in love say their vows to each other. I am here for every detail, or special touch I can hand to your special day. Let’s grab a beverage and talk about your event vision!
I am a huge fan of the good ol' PNW. I support our local farmers and growers, and source locally as much as I can.
I chase around my two kiddos, adore my husband (he’s seriously amazing), and I love, I mean live on coffee.
Live on coffee and flowers.
