Melian & Abigail The original 2 Gals
Melian Grant and Abigail Lancaster are the two original parts that make up 2 Gals with Flowers. We are cousins, friends, and business partners.
This is how it began:
Five +years ago when I (Melian) was getting married, I decided to do my own flowers. I knew virtually nothing about it but did a ton of research while figuring out what I wanted. One thing I did know: after seeing a friends' $1800.00 wedding floral bill, there was no way I was paying a retail florist if I could do it myself.
$500.00 and lots of work later we had beautiful flowers (some of which you can see in our gallery). A year later, in 2009, 2 Gals with Flowers was born out of the theory that there must be other brides like I was, who don't have lots of money to throw at flowers but still want (and deserve) nice bouquets and bouts.
Our third gal is Catherine Hooper. She is an integral and contributing member of our team. She is as capable and creative as she is nice, and her addition to our team helps us all work in the way that is best for us and our lives.
As we have worked, we have gotten better and better at what we do. Roles have changed, lives have changed, but we remain a working team of creative ladies who love each other and working together to do flowers.
We all have full time jobs, family, and lives outside of the wedding world.
Melian teaches in post-secondary education, Catherine works in the non-profit sector, and Abby works in the senior care industry.
So now that you've read all of that, you know that we are not full-time florists. As you will see from our galleries, we do the work of professionals, just as part-time designers.
