12th & Olive
At the intersection of 12th St. and Olive St. in downtown Los Angeles is a church that holds an incredibly important place in my heart.
More than seven years ago I moved to this city as an early twenty-something and I found myself more lost and lonely than ever. This church is the place that helped root me in Christ once again and fall in love with everything this easily misunderstood city has to offer. There I found love, I found friendships beyond measure, and I found something unexpected - florals.
I joined the volunteer team to provide weekly floral arrangements for the services and you could say I fell in head first. I can’t say it was smooth sailing from there, but after years of bouncing the idea around, I officially started this business in 2016 and felt it necessary to pay homage to the place where it all began.
