Hi, I’m Lauren, the face behind Laurel and Sage!
I have always loved flowers and the joy they bring. Some of my fondest childhood memories are learning the names of various flowers and plants from my mom, who helped cultivate my love of all things botanical. I am constantly inspired and amazed by the unique beauty and detail of each flower, and I love the way they point to their Creator. My husband Jonathan and I and love taking our dog Shadrach on hikes at Ruffner Mountain, enjoying the blooms at the Botanical Gardens, and grabbing ice cream at Big Spoon in our free time.
After lots of praying and planning, I started Laurel and Sage 3.5 years ago as a way to use my God-given love for flowers and creativity and combine it with my desire to bring people joy. The meaning behind our name is simple but significant- my name means “laurel,” and “sage” represents all the wise and wonderful people I love that have helped me create this business- especially my sweet husband! I truly love what I do, and I’m so grateful to work with such sweet couples!
Thanks for stopping by- come say hi and let’s talk flowers!
We have the sweetest couples, and it truly is a joy to get to work with each and every one! Here’s what they’ve said about our time together:
Of all of the wedding vendors we worked with, Laurel and Sage was by far the one that is was absolutely positive would be the right choice. Lauren is professional and passionate about her work and goes the extra mile to ensure that her clients interests are met. Many vendors try to put their own personal style into their clients choices, but one of my favorite things about Lauren is how much she not only respected our taste and vision, but how she HELPED to make that vision a reality. Additionally she went to the extra mile on wedding day to ensure that all of our floral arrangements were amazing, taking extra trips between the church and the venue and even adding nice touches like bringing backup boutonnières just Incase the first ones get crushed before the ceremony. Not to mention the quality of the florals was spectacular and made our wedding look beautiful. Going with Laurel and Sage ensures that you are working with a company that cares for its clients first and will making your wedding look amazing! – Brittany & Clay
Lauren did an AMAZING job with my wedding flowers! The arrangements she made were absolutely stunning and so unique. She was such a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. From the initial planning phase, to the day of, and even afterwards, she completely exceeded my expectations. I gave her some rough ideas of what I would want and she created a breathtaking proposal with such creative ideas and arrangements. She even helped me take some clippings from my bouquet and pressed them for me so I could have them as a keepsake! I would definitely recommend Laurel and Sage to anyone. – Lacy & Daniel
Lauren did a great job realizing our vision of simple elegance for our wedding. After our first meeting she made a contract and she was able to capture our vision for our wedding completely. Due to COVID, we were unable to meet again but through e-mails, she made everything happen. The way she handled everything made the wedding flowers one thing I didn’t have to worry about- great news for any bride! Seeing the venue on our wedding day and how she had transformed a beautiful space to make it even more beautiful and special for our wedding was breathtaking. I would recommend her to anyone! – Martha & Adam
Lauren with Laurel and Sage was one of our most favorite vendors to work with for our wedding!! When we met in person for the first time, she already had a Pinterest board dedicated to our wedding with inspiration she gathered from my initial ideas from the email I sent her. Right off the bat Lauren was knocking it out of the park! Lauren was always so sweet and professional. She was (and still is!) easy to get in contact with and replies to emails in a very timely manner. Our florals were BEAUTIFUL and I’m still getting compliments on them four months later! She really turned our floral ideas into a reality! We gave her a big challenge with making a garland for our bouncy house (!!!) and she did a phenomenal job! Lauren went above and beyond- from set up, checking-in before the ceremony, take down, and donating our florals after our wedding- I would recommend Laurel and Sage florist over and over again!!! – Allison & Jeremiah
Laurel and Sage did an AMAZING job at our summer wedding. I only had very vague ideas of what I wanted, so I let her have creative freedom with the rest, and she went above and beyond! When we initially met up, I felt like she really listened and understood what vibes and looks I appreciated and which ones just weren’t my style. When she showed me my bouquet the morning of my wedding day, it about brought me to tears. Everything was absolutely lovely, and she was a true joy to work with. She is very responsive, and I didn’t have to think twice about all the set up and take down work needing to be done at the ceremony and reception sites- they handled everything. Would highly recommend to anyone!! – Becca & Nick
Laurel & Sage blew me away with their work! They were able to exceed my requests in ways I never thought. The details on the cake, the jaw dropping arbor arrangement, and perfection in the wedding party flowers does not even compare to the kind, genuine, and professional work that was done by Lauren. Thank you for traveling as far as you did to be a part of my special day in a way I will always remember! – Jenna & Caleb
Lauren made our wedding day so gorgeous!! Every little detail was absolutely perfect and we could not have been happier with her work. She listened to my ideas of what I wanted and gave me plenty of inspiration photos so I could get a clear vision of what to expect things to look like on our big day. Everything turned out even more beautiful than I expected. You will not regret choosing Laurel and Sage!! – Tabitha & Jamie
My experience with Lauren was nothing short of incredible- she listened and took the time to understand my vision. Rather than boxing me into one of the popular trends and running with that like so many other florists seemed to do, she used her extensive knowledge of florals to create something that matched what I liked, while including some fun flowers that I’d never even heard of before. I LOVED the end result of all of my wedding flowers and will cherish the pictures and dried ones that I got to keep forever. – Sarah Catherine & Will
I can’t say enough praises for Laurel and Sage! Lauren took my vision and made it real. Throughout the whole process Lauren was super helpful and kept me at ease. If you’re thinking of doing the flowers yourself, don’t! That’s just added stress that might not look as good as you imagined, hire Laurel and Sage and put your trust in her. She will make your wedding beautiful! I recommend Laurel and Sage 100%! – Marci & Zach
