Hi! I’m Janelle, owner and lead floral designer of Flowers by Janie Inc. I grew up enjoying gardening with my mom and had
my own little garden plot where I grew flowers and would arrange them to enter in
to the local fall fairs so it seems I've always had a passion for floral design. I am a certified floral designer with over 18 years of floral design experience receiving my Certificate of Commercial Floristry at Olds College and my Bachelor of Management from the University of Lethbridge.
I have lived and worked with flowers in New Zealand, Mexico and most recently Bolivia where I started Flowers by Janie in 2011 along with my Bolivian husband Oscar. We own a private floral studio, along with Oscar's videography company (Castaño Films), in Calgary, Alberta and are huge fans of weddings (we’d get re-married every year if we could) but also big fans of the marriage that is built after the big day. I love weddings, marriages and flowers, and am so happy I found my passion early in life!
