Love for Weddings. Life for Events. Bloom for Flowers.
A second generation in the floral and wedding industry, she literally woke up one morning, loved life, and bloomed—that is the story.
Who We Are
JENNIE DOAN (OWNER, FLORIST AND EVENT PLANNER)
A second generation in the floral and wedding industry, Jennie’s interest in flowers started when she was a child. Her mother was a self-taught Florist and Wedding Planner and Jennie remembers getting up at dawn and going with her mother to the San Francisco Flower Mart to select and purchase the freshest of flowers. Then there was those endless hours of cleaning and trimming hundreds of flowers and stems, and washing and filling buckets with water. The night before the wedding was always consumed with making corsages and boutonnieres (usually a Friday while watching Full House and Family Matters!), and on the day of the wedding, they were very busy bees setting up as a family team (Her Mother - Florist and Wedding Planner, Setup Team - Jennie and her little sister, and Driver - their Father)—quite an experience and a great beginning for a young "flower child."
But, like most other children, Jennie eventually wanted to spread her own wings and fly, so she decided to go to college to explore and discover her own path. And although she did continue to help her family and friends with flowers and events, it wasn’t until she was helping with her best friend's wedding, which was such a lovely experience, that she suddenly got inspired. Soon after that, she literally woke up one morning and “bloomed,” as she realized that flowers and weddings was what she truly loved, and that this was the path she wanted to take. So, Jennie decided to pursue her dream—and thus, Love Life + Bloom was born!
