Thank you so much for visiting our page! My name is Leah Parent and I am a Mid-Michigan Native and founder of LJ Bloom. I have always had a creative spirit, and a knack for crafting and design. My journey to the flower world started when helping with DIY weddings for family and friends. The idea of actually evolving a business out of my hobby happened over a couple glasses of wine with friends who encouraged me to give it a shot! It wasn’t long after, I began to devote all my free time and energy into flowers!
As a Floral Designer, I’m always learning something new and constantly having to train my eye to see the utmost potential in the blooms, and other elements, that are involved. Floral Design is an art and it can be subjective. My main goal when working with clients is to identify their vision, make suggestions, and execute. I'm also here to provide a service that eliminates the stress and worry that many endure while planning a wedding or special event.
Aside from flowers, I am a huge Northern Michigan fan (who isn't!?) and try to make it up north to our family cabin as often as possible. We LOVE Northern Michigan weddings (hint hint) I also sing in a band, we aren't famous yet, but maybe if this floral stuff doesn't pan out, we should get on that! ;) More importantly, I love spending time with friends & family, or any excuse to travel somewhere fun with my husband, Travis, the life support and trusty helper of LJ Bloom ;) (he really loves being my assistant). We live in Plymouth, MI and have a very active and fun 1.5 yr old daughter Leighton Jorae, our beautiful gift and true inspiration for the name, LJ Bloom.
Enough about me! I would love to meet you, and be a part of your next event! Feel free to reach out anytime, even if it's just a simple question, I'm happy to help!
