our roots are in the family

When I look at what life has brought me my greatest accomplishment has been MY FAMILY. We have always remained close and with the blessings of businesses like the gardens we all work together as well. Not to say that doesn’t have it ups and downs but the reward of being able to celebrate ALL holidays, weekend get togethers, weekday pop overs, and to have everyone there is amazing! We had been buying flowers from Hastings Lake Gardens for 3 years and we never knew the beauty behind the “rope” and when we were told that HLG was for sale, Court and I headed over immediately! Once seeing the majestic gardens we were sold. We had so much fun with the weddings in 2023 and with my business background, and Courts events background, we are going to bring new and exciting adventures to Hastings Lake Gardens!
