Meet Allie

Allie is the owner and lead designer at Sassafras. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville and has been designing floral arrangements and events for over ten years.

Allie is an artist, and flowers are her medium.  Her education in composition, color theory and design is evident in every thoughtfully designed arrangement.  She stays up to date with the latest techniques and trends in floral design and is always learning something new.

She loves her work and has assembled a brilliant team of designers who enjoy the aesthetics, challenge, and energy of floral design as much as she does. She and her husband Jordan have two beautiful girls, Isabelle and Ivey Grace, and live in Fountain City, north of Knoxville, Tennessee.

When Allie isn’t choosing the perfect stem, she’s chasing two princesses, serving up chocolate milk, or walking her two boxers.

What makes us sassy?

We are perfectionists, we are passionate about what we do, and we have discovered that our passion is contagious.

We make your event our event.

We are always deepening our expertise, and we never work from templates that we’ve created during past jobs. Every event, every wedding, and every arrangement that we design is one-of-a-kind. Our design style and aesthetic is recognizable, with a large variety of blooms and high stem count. The work we do for you will be unlike anything you have ever seen. They will be the centerpieces, not the wallpaper.

Anything that goes out our door with the name Sassafras attached to it will be fresh, exciting, and remarkable.

We stand by the work that we do, and we want you to love it.

What makes us special?

We will work within your budget, making sure to bring your dreams to a reality.  Your budget matters to us, and we will respect it.

We will listen to you, and ask for your input. We won’t hijack your event. When you are happy, we are successful.

We will show up on time and do whatever it takes to ensure that your event is beautiful, flowers are stunning and your wedding is magical. Yes, we said “magical.”

We will answer phone calls and emails and ask a lot of questions. Clear, consistent communication is like floral wire: it holds everything together.
