Hi, I'm Kate!!

I am a florist, a designer, a mother to three incredible daughters, a wife and the owner of Bloom Designs.  I cherish all of these roles and my amazing couples and clients who make my career as a florist and event stylist possible.

My path as a wedding florist began in high school in the neighborhood floral shop and continued through college.  I entered the interior design field where I put my passion to use and created hundreds of silk floral arrangements for national clients.  After being asked by my sister Anne to help with her wedding on the Chesapeake Bay, I realized working with fresh flowers was more than something I absolutely loved - my experience in floral and design was sought after for weddings, events, benefits and other celebrations looking for custom fresh arrangements.

Bloom Designs is my labor of love and I am dedicated to creating signature weddings and stylish events.  I pride myself on working with any budget and making sure your day is every bit as special as you imagined.  My goal is to create floral arrangements that compliment the uniqueness of the couple walking down the aisle.  I love working alongside my brides, couples and other clients to create an end-product that is all they imagined and more.

I make my home with my family in the Brainerd Lakes and absolutely love each and every unique couple that I have been able to share in their special day over the past 5 years and look forward to many flower filled years to come.  If you are looking for a florist to create artisan floral arrangements that are fresh and timeless, I can't wait to hear from you and bring your dreams to reality!

Your flowers were stunning. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how they turned out – the bouquets, the corsages, the bouts, the décor around the lanterns – it was all perfect.  Better than I expected, and I already knew I would be expecting/receiving something great! My mother was thrilled as well. You’re awesome.  THANK YOU SO MUCH. -Kelli, Bride

You did such a beautiful job w/everything!! You were so professional and wonderful to work with!! Please feel free to use us as a reference for anyone having a destination wedding. I will sing your praises! -Michelle, Bride


The flowers were gorgeous! I was blown away with how beautiful they were and not just me. I got more compliments on the flowers than anything else. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into them. It is obvious you put a lot of care and consideration into your work. -Courtney, Bride


I cant say Thank You enough for making the Gull Lake Center and Reception area look FABULOUS!  We knew that you would do a good job with the flowers and were not to concerned but you far exceeded anything that I thought that room would look like.  It was SOOO fun to see it all on Saturday - I LOVED it. You did SUCH an amazing job with all of the little details the room was just beautiful. I love the different flowers and colors that you used and the arch floral was perfect. Thank you for making our wedding so beautiful, it was such a great day!! -Sarah, Bride


You are absolutely, insanely and completely amazing.  I can barely even put into words how I felt when I saw the beauty you had created for both the ceremony and reception.  I’m struggling now to even fully express how absolutely perfect every single detail was.  It was quite literally EXACTLY what I had envisioned.  I was so amazed after having seen everything come together; I would not have changed one single element. -Katy, Bride


Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how AMAZING everything looked at the reception hall. I had soo many great compliments and it all looked soo fantastic!! Thanks so much for working with me, I will for sure be recommending you to everyone! You are awesome to work with!! -Kristen, Bride


The other big moment for me was getting to see the reception ballroom for the first time. I was able to sneak in early before the crowd so my bridesmaid could bustle my dress and I'm so glad I got that moment. I walked in and literally it took my breath away! It was everything I had pictured and more and that was largely due to you - understanding my vision and making it happen in such a creative way. The flowers, the driftwood, the glass bulbs with flowers inside - everything was stunning! I got so many compliments throughout the night. -Jennifer, Bride
