My designs are Organic.

I find that arrangements often look best when they closely resemble how they naturally grow in nature. Roses grow in clusters, and often are slightly drooping because of their large heads. Poppies have interesting stem lines, twisting and curving in curious ways. Anemones often have straight stems, their necks reaching up towards the sun. Each variety of flower has its own set of characteristics and I try to have each arrangement I design to look like they grew straight up from the ground. While processing my flower order, I study each stem. I look at which way the flower wants to lean. I find that forcing a stem a certain way often makes the flower look stiff and out of place. But by placing it where it naturally wants to go, it almost looks like it grew right up from the dirt. I find that this is how flowers look their best.

I love to add a few varieties of flowers of what I like to call “accent textured blooms” to each arrangement. Astrantia, berries, Wax Flower, Astilbe, Queen Anne’s Lace…I could list these kinds of flowers forever. They are my favorite blooms to order and always fill the space when I feel like something is missing from an arrangement. These types of flowers range from a desert-y roughness to a delicate, soft, and airy. They have such quirky and exciting personalities that are never boring. They are the perfect bloom to add that dimension and depth to a design.

Greenery is one of the most underused bloom in the wedding industry. It can add so much interest and dimension to an arrangement. I find that when I add in that organic and textured greenery, my arrangements are enhanced and given a beautiful shape that otherwise would have left the arrangement looking flat and round. Greenery allows each arrangement I design to have its own shape, allowing each arrangement to be completely unique to you and your wedding day. That is something that is so personal and important to me, that each bride I work with has something special and meaningful to them.

Even though analyzing each stem takes time, I’ve come to appreciate each flower I work with and its own personality that it brings. I always had a love for flowers, but by learning and studying its natural habitat I’ve fallen even more in love.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
