Hi, I'm Toria! Wife, designer, event planner, florist and mama. After graduate school, I worked in business management for three years. In that time, I married my high school sweetheart, built our first home, and became a mama to our little boy, Dominic. It was those life changing moments – planning my wedding and designing our home – when I discovered my love for design and planning. It was time for a new challenge and so Petals and Lace was born!

As I was planning my wedding I loved trying on wedding dresses, going to tastings and browsing Pinterest for one-of-a-kind ideas...but the long checklist, vendor research and countless decisions was overwhelming, especially while working a demanding job! If I did it all over again, no question I would hire a wedding planner. My role as your wedding planner is to take care of the logistics and partner with you on designing your event so you can enjoy this season of engagement and your wedding day! 

Designing and planning is my niche and I love doing it! As an event designer, I use my creativity to pull together a design with color schemes, themes and florals that align with your vision. I love how every decision contributes to the overall aesthetic of a wedding - it's a magical process. As an event planner, I have the management, organizational and problem solving skills to plan and coordinate every facet of your wedding. So let's be friends, have some fun and plan your wedding together! 

NOW FOR SOME FUN FACTS:

I love chai tea lattes!

I love flowers…especially garden roses and peonies!

I spend way too much time browsing Pinterest for the newest wedding style trends.

I married my best friend, Joe, five years ago and still wish I could go back in time to re-live that amazing day!

I'm a mama to the sweetest baby boy & girl- Dom & Liv!

I adore love stories and am so excited to make your wedding day everything you’ve dreamed of!
