The Lily Crew
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 of the job for me is meeting with the cleints and getting my hands dirty in the ground planting new flowers. I have 5 grown children, 1 grandson, and an awesome husband. I don't know if many people know this, but my business isalso my ministry. I have a heart for marriages staying together and always share my wisdom for a strong and happy marriage.
Since The Marmalade Lily began in 2015, I have truly adored every day I have worked here alongside my mom and The Lily Crew! Whether it’s designing an ad for The Knot magazine, creating a custom hair piece for a bride, or collaborating with a fabulous vendor for a new workshop, the variety and creative opportunities are bar-none.
My husband, son and I are avid foodies, musicians, and nature-lovers at heart. If I have some spare change, I love to indulge at local plant nurseries, home decor stores, or just sit down with a good book and a latte. Otherwise, there’s always a good chance we’re all just cruising at Grandma and Grandpa’s in the golf cart at The Marmalade Lily!

Working at The Marmalade Lily is the dream job I never knew I wanted! After 15 years of nannying, I was ready for a new experience. I've found more pride and fulfillment in being a part of The Lily Crew than I ever imagined, and I am so blessed. Whether I'm emailing with a bride searching for her dream venue, scheduling appointments, getting my creative juices flowing arranging flowers, or overseeing a wedding or event, my heart overflows with every portion of my job.
Most of my free time is spent with my husband and son (and little one on the way). We tend to be home bodies, but love enjoying adventures around Cincinnati! My dream getaway would be anywhere I'm surrounded by a lake and mountains. While I used to call stock and peonies my favorite flowers, now thanks to my job, I have too many to name!

I love working with brides to capture what they imagine for their special day and delivering with excellence. As a recent grad of Ohio University, I aim to utilize my experience to make your wedding as wondrous and awe-inspiring as possible.
In my free time I enjoy anything from hiking outside to seeing new movies in theaters. I also truly delight in volunteering with my local church, Crossroads, on the weekend. My favorite flower is a tulip!
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 so exciting to work with the flowers in the gardens and watch them grow from seeds to blooms, but the real joy is being able to share those flowers with our guests and U-cutters and enjoying the property with them.
I am a mom of three boys and a wife to one handsome hubby and they are my favorite pastime! But I also enjoy grabbing a bite to eat with a friend at a yummy restaurant, attending all the sporting events known to man, kayaking, fishing, fitness boxing, and shopping for all things home and fashion!
This is my 2nd year with The Marmalade Lily. I began my “career” in the wedding industry 5 years ago being a bridal dress consultant right out of college. I never knew that short term job would propel me to all the different areas of weddings I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Since that first part time job, I have been the manager of a wedding studio, a photographer/videographer assistant, and coordinator for weddings all over the Cincinnati area. I have worked with dozens of brides and never get tired of watching their faces light up when they see all their dreams become a reality. It is truly such a gift to be a small part of our couple’s big day!
Outside the wedding business, I love my day job as an Intervention Specialist working with kids severely affected by autism. In my (small amount of) free time, I enjoy directing, acting, and choreographing for local community theatre groups and spending time with my husband, step-daughter, and 2 dogs.
One of my many blessings is being married to my husband, John, for 34 years. We have five wonderful adult children. I love being with people. I love special celebrations. I love to organize events and help them flow smoothly. I love the charm and uniqueness of flowers.
This combination is perfect for working at the Marmalade Lily and creating beautiful weddings for brides and grooms. I really enjoy helping them through the planning stages to make their day extra special. The Marmalade Lily venue is elegant and gorgeous, and the flowers take my breath away.
My desire is that each wedding will be the beginning of a delightful lifetime together!
I’m that person who wants everyone to have a good time and be comfortable at a party even when it’s not my party! What motivates me is to focus on the logistics and let you fully embrace your celebration. As a Certified Project Manager, I’ve been honored for 20 years to coordinate many events and projects for local government and non-profit organizations.
Growing up in Ohio then returning as an adult gave me an appreciation for hanging out with my family, serving the community, and respecting our environment. I am passionate about gardening, music, and yoga. I love the fragrance of peonies, lilacs, and roses, but sunflowers especially make me smile!
