Hey everyone, I’m Tara and I am the lead designer in our Wheat Ridge location! I’ve been in the floral industry for 5 years, and in that time I’ve worked in everything from small boutiques, to high-volume shops to wedding and event design. I truly love that every wedding is different, and each work day has something new. As if working away at your wedding doesn’t keep me busy enough, I actually work in a second shop in the Denver area, so keep your eyes peeled and you might spot me there too!
When I am not busy working with flowers, which is rare, I'm either in the mountains, on a trip, or snuggled up with a good book.
Hey guys! I am Emily and I am the studio manager and lead designer for our Longmont studio. I’m originally from Iowa, and I moved to Colorado mid-pandemic in May 2020 to follow my husband to grad school! I started working in weddings and florals right out of college, and I am working on my second year in the industry. I have always loved weddings (like. A lot a lot. I can't think of the last time I went to a wedding and didn’t cry) so working in the industry just felt like a great fit for me! When I am not designing or in the shop you can usually find me hiking with my super rad dog Piper, cooking with my equally rad husband or tending to my assorted houseplants while singing Taylor Swift!
Hello wedding peeps! My name is Julia and I am the consultation manager for our Longmont Studio! I can’t wait to meet you and chat about all things flowers! I grew up in Colorado and graduated from CU (sko buffs!!) and after graduation I couldn’t leave Boulder. I joined the wedding industry in 2016 and fell IN LOVE with all the wedding things. If I am not in the studio chatting all things flowers or making boutonnieres, you can find me outside hiking & climbing or cozy at home doing a puzzle watching a rom com with my snuggly kitten Piper! I am a sucker for sunshine and laughter and cannot wait to chat with you about your wedding dreams!
Hi there! I’m Naomi, one of the lead designers in the Longmont Studio. I fell in love with wedding flowers ten years ago and have been working with flowers ever since. (My coworkers like to call me the “dictionary” as I know a lot of flower types.)
I enjoy the variety of weddings we do at Bitterroot Studio from the huge installations and tall centerpieces, to pops of color with a simple arch and sweet vintage vases. My fav flowers are blue love-in-the-mist and dusty pink Quicksand roses. (If you think you don’t like roses, think again – the roses we can get are incredibly beautiful!)
When I’m not designing in the studio, you can find me buried in the flower and vegetable garden or curled up enjoying historical fiction and foreign films. I also love celebrating birthdays with my very large family.
I can’t wait to design for your big day!
Just had to drop a note to send our thanks to all who worked on the flowers for my daughter's wedding, whether it was the initial design, ordering of flowers, assembly of bouquets, centerpieces, etc., or delivery/installation of said items. We were absolutely blown away by their beauty! My sister-in-law said she couldn't stop staring at them. They looked so perfect, she had to keep making sure they were real vs. silk!
I've attached a picture of her bouquet to refresh your memory. We're having it preserved and made into a framed art piece with Refinery Floral in Littleton. I'll be getting a small 6x6 frame of pressed flowers from her bouquet and will smile every time I look at it.
Thanks for making our big day such a sweet success. Blessings to all of you!
I just wanted to thanks Bitterroot for the lovely florals for the Jancin/Yue wedding. Everything was so very beautiful. The weather was glorious, and everyone was amazed at Tapestry House. It was a perfect wedding and it was a pleasure to work with you! Charmaine
"We cannot say enough good things about Bitterroot. Our baby’s breath bouquets were so simple, but so elegant. Our wedding party and parents loved the boutonnieres & corsages. The floral arrangements they did for our arch & head table were absolutely beautiful. The staff was so helpful on nailing down exactly what we wanted and working with us on price. It was such an amazing day, that was made even better by the floral aspects. We cannot thank you guys enough. You helped make a perfect day even more perfect and we highly recommend you guys. Thank you so much!"
"Bitterroot did an absolutely AMAZING job with our wedding flowers. From the the very first consultation with them to the day of delivery I trusted them 100% to deliver exactly what we had envisioned, and they did! The team is so personable and helpful through the entire process. I couldn’t believe the customized bridal bouquet they did for me, from that to the centerpieces, welcome sign, bridesmaid bouquets, corsages, wedding cake flowers, and more, it was beautiful! I would highly recommend Bitterroot for any event big or small for gorgeous flower arrangements !"
"Bitterroot Studio created such a pretty bouquet! My pictures just don't do it justice. It was such a breeze communicating with them and they were able to create pieces that were beyond what I dreamed of. They also did our arch arrangement, centerpieces, boutonnieres, corsages, and head table arrangement. All the arrangements complimented each other and were all so beautiful! Because I requested to pick up the bouquets a day before the wedding, they provided us with instructions and materials to keep them looking fresh for the wedding. If you're looking for any kind of floral arrangements, don't look any further. Contact them, they are great to work with and everything will look great!"
"The whole team of gals at Bitterroot are absolutely amazing! They create stunning works of art with their florals, and take time and attention to meet each clients needs! I have worked with several different florists as a wedding planner and they are by far my top choice. Not only is their team fantastic to work with (shoutout to Sabia and Shila) but their florals are absolutely stunning. I can't recommend them enough!"
