Meet the Wildflowers
Wildflower was founded by friends Amelia (Mia) and Kristen after they helped their mutual friends with their wedding. From venue décor to invite design to detailed day-of scheduling, it hardly felt like work to them. Both already entrepreneurs in creative fields, they knew their diverse skillsets and experiences would make them stellar wedding planners.
Hey! I’m Mia, co-founder of Wildflower Wedding Co. I’m a mom of two, coffee addict, lifestyle photographer, graphic design lover, and wedding obsessed.
With a background in wedding photography, I have been a part of a lot of weddings. My role as a wedding photographer is to tell your love story and document each detail. With that comes a lot of behind the scenes work. I believe it is very important to be present and help the bride and groom relax and enjoy each moment of their day. I’ve calmed countless jittery nerves by always keeping photos as easy going as possible.
It seems I’ve been gearing up to add Wedding Planner to my repertoire for years. I’ve buttoned up bride’s dresses and adjusted their veils, and pinned boutonnières on groomsmen more times than I can count. I’ve been the contact person between bride and groom, and between the couple and different vendors. At times I’ve even helped decorate the reception space and designed decor, invitations and more. I witnessed firsthand how important having someone in a planning and coordination role can be.
Over the years I’ve honed my graphic design skills and am so excited to launch our line of Wildflower Wedding Co. Stationery in our Etsy Shop. Each piece is designed to fit with an overall wedding theme/style. After putting the kids to bed, you will find me in my PJs working on our next Etsy shop addition or a custom order.
Yes! Mia will continue with her lifestyle and photography business alongside Wildflower Wedding Co.
Kristen says, Mia’s most valuable skills to Wildflower are…

Kristen says, her favourite thing about Mia is…
Her infectious positive attitude, big heart and even bigger smile.

Hello! I’m Kristen. I’m an interior design junkie, organization freak, lover of the outdoors and anything that makes you sweaty. I’m also the co-founder of Wildflower Wedding Co. and a certified Wedding Planner.
While my background isn’t as romantic as Mia’s, it’s just as applicable. I spent 10 years in the corporate world as a Software Trainer and Project Manager. Here I developed a strong desire to make people’s lives easier. If we can break big tasks down into manageable chunks, anything is possible. I love watching people set goals, then crush them. Planning your dream wedding can be overwhelming, especially when you also have a life. In my 15 years of planning and organizational experience, I’ve developed the skills to create a very specific approach to wedding planning and coordination.
I also have a background in interior design and home staging. I’m passionate about kitchen and bath design and selecting finishes like tile, hardware and paint. My trained eye for detail, understanding of interior design principles and experience with colour will assist in the development and execution of your desired wedding style - from stationery, to attire, to table scapes, to decor.
In my free time I enjoy focusing on self-care and self-development. My most recent course was a 7 Day Wedding Floral Intensive at Toronto’s Bloom School.
Yes! Kristen will continue with her interior design work alongside Wildflower Wedding Co. Her new website is launching soon!
