After designing for my company, Linnaea Floral & Event Design, since 2010, I've come to realize that while I love big gorgeous weddings and all the pretty details that go along with them, small is where my heart is.
Growing up in a small town in Northern Michigan, I cherished the privacy that our home in the woods provided and spent a lot of time playing outside with my sisters and a few close friends. We didn't focus on material things and didn't live a luxurious life, but one that was rooted in family and friendship and independence. I think because of this, weddings that are big, over the top productions were never in my comfort zone.
I value the privacy that elopements hold. I value intentional, meaningful, heartfelt vows, pretty bouquets, getting dressed up for special occasions, and celebratory champagne. I believe that weddings are for two people in love and their closest humans (and sometimes fur babies), not a show of wealth, success, or grandeur.
Because of all this, it's been on my heart to create a company that caters to elopements and tiny weddings for couples that still want all those good bits: getting all dressed up, carrying a gorgeous bridal bouquet, saying your vows in an amazing location, and capturing all the beautiful memories in an uninterrupted and honest way. Our clients want an intimate, intentional, meaningful, and curated experience for their wedding day, and that's what we provide!

Elopements speak to our hearts. When we first realized we were in love, we found a spot on the map we’d never been to and just took off. That was the beginning of our story and our wanderlust hasn't stopped since. Our souls are ignited by creativity, edginess, unconventional love stories, intimacy, trust, and fearlessness. We are non-conformists. We occasionally have crazy ideas, we make inappropriate jokes, and immediately treat you like old friends. Capturing images is a partnership; it takes collaboration and a connection to make something truly beautiful. Let us tell your story, take us on your wild ride.

With 12+ years of hairstyling under my belt, as well as continuous education on trends and techniques, hair styling is my art form and passion. Whether it be a big chunky side braid, soft waves, or an undone romantic updo…I love it all. Makeup allows me to paint a canvas by enhancing your features with a softer, more natural approach. Not only is my style of makeup application on the natural side, but all of the hair and beauty products I use align with my natural, eco-friendly ways and cruelty-free ethics.
I am beyond ecstatic to be a part of The Elopement Co. I truly believe the day should be about the love you have for one another. I’d be thrilled to work with you and help you feel your most beautiful on your big, yet intimate day. I am also available for destination elopements and love to travel. Combining my passion for hairstyling, eco-chic beauty, traveling, and madly-in-love couples is a dream for me!
