McKenzie O’Grady is a florist, stylist, and a storyteller.
Trained by industry leaders, tastemakers, and artists, McKenzie’s florals are richly inspired, and all her own. As she creates her compositions, she draws from childhood memories, evocative places, and associations of safety and unconditional love. Her flowers seem to tell stories—your story. They are wild and lovely and free.
McKenzie’s inherent artistry drew her to the fields of figure skating, dance, and writing, which have given her a unique expressive voice. And her beautiful command of the language arts allows her to create truly expressive floral creations and curated events. These intimate, inspired gatherings (whether gatherings of flowers or people) are living stories. They are your stories, unfolding in real time.
It is this very ability to speak—to express—that makes McKenzie’s the ideal voice for creative direction. Events, after all, require craftsmanship on every level: financial and practical as well as creative. As the owner of two small, design-focused businesses, McKenzie is well-versed in the practical side of event-planning. She is able to relay information to vendors with power and class. As the voice of your wedding, she will represent you with class and integrity. She will see to it that your event unfolds on time, on budget, as you have planned. All higher forms of artistry emerge from this sound foundation, from a business model that is strong enough to support creativity and expression. McKenzie has created this, so that she can create stories and events of lasting power
McKenzie’s manner is compassionate and manifests itself at the highest levels of creative direction. Hers are styling, consulting, and coordinating services quite unlike any other.
With an innate sensitivity and command over many artistic mediums, she will relax and focus you during consultations. She will keep you organized and inspired throughout the creative process. And she will show you just what a joy this process, and the telling of your story, really is. Your most sacred moments have fallen into incredibly capable hands.
McKenzie’s favorite flower is lily of the valley. Her favorite story to tell is yours.
