Kirstin West, Owner and lead florist
I originally started Bear Roots Floral (formerly Lizzie and Lace) in 2012 after a short career teaching art, working for a larger florist and time spent in different aspects of the wedding world.
My love for all things creative pushed me towards setting out on my own to continue to create with flowers. My fondness for textures, the arts, color theory and movement helps me to create unique arrangements that I believe showcase my art background and love of nature. I view my job as an art form, I get to create something beautiful with nature. I love people, and getting the opportunity to collaborate my design style with clients ideas is the most enjoyable part of my job.
"Inspired by Nature"
I love bringing the "outside in" or creating pieces that appear to be naturally a part of the space. I enjoy including foraged greens and potted plants in arrangements when I can. I feel it makes the arrangements appear more grounded and organic. I always find that I enjoy creating pieces that attach themselves back to earth, or at least “appear to.”
Bear Roots is a specialty wedding and event florist. We specialize in unique, wild and romantic arrangements that are customized for your special event. We love creating installations and other unique pieces to help make your wedding special.
