MARLEE VAN OORD
FOUNDER | CERTIFIED FLORIST | EVENT PLANNER
Marlee’s love for designing and creating events has been evident since her childhood. It has led to the creation of Flowerella Event Florals and Coordination. Marlee began her career 6 years ago in the business event industry gaining credentials along the way from Douglas College, Burnaby School Board, and CDI College for her Event Management and Coordination Diploma, as well as her Floral Certification.
Marlee’s introduction to the industry began in 2010 when she was hired as a floral assistant at Bridal Beginnings Event Florals, and at Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club where she has a current position as the Special Events Manager. Along the way Marlee has been mentored by individuals with years of experience, learned the ‘ins and outs’ of wedding planning and design, and has made numerous connections and partnerships with other professionals within the industry.
Marlee believes the foundation for success is building trusting relationships with clients as well as key vendors and venues. Her professionalism, patience and passion make the planning process fun and effortless. And most of all, making your event everything you have ever dreamed of.
