who we are + what we believe

INSPIRING BEAUTY. FLOWERING FOR GOOD. CREATING WITH LOVE, ALWAYS.

Our hands are extensions of our hearts, creating artfully for our communities through all seasons of life.

love always,

GRANDMA LOIS.

In 2016, LAF founder Christy Tehven was ready to take the leap and open her business with the mission of spreading love, always.

Inspired by the empowering women in her life, one woman stood out in particular: her grandmother—
who signed all of her heartfelt cards:

Love Always,
Grandma Lois.


And so Love Always Floral was born,
with her script used as our logo.

We instill these values in our studio daily as an homage to Grandma Lois, the strong women who came before her, and the strong women they’ve paved the way for.

WHO WE ARE

Founded in 2016, Love Always Floral started as a one-woman business in Christy Tehven's home in Fargo, North Dakota. It quickly grew into the studio of our dreams, filled with a team of fellow flower lovers sharing the same passion: love for each other and love for our customers.

With dreams of opening a floral studio in Bismarck, North Dakota, Janelle Hartford was fan-girling Christy + Love Always for years before the gals decided two heads were better than one. In 2021, Love Always opened its second location in Bismarck with Janelle taking the reins, bringing our unique and artful designs to the western side of the state.

Our team of designers are passionate about creating intentionally for our clients, flowering heart-first. We are so grateful to share our studios with creative, talented, and truly kind humans.

Both locations operate private studios, functioning as one brand with the same mission + focusing on full-service weddings, large floral installations, and daily deliveries for all of life's moments.

"Each of our teammates know that the art they're creating serves a larger purpose. The team really embodies that mission and the core of love, no matter the occasion."

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We strive to create a culture of love, inclusion, joy, and celebration – inside our studios and out.
We celebrate individuality, creativity, and love in every form.

It's our mission to craft with intention, create artfully, and build an environment of warmth and trust with our clients every step of the way. We believe in flowering for good, supporting causes close to our hearts, recycling florals through Hope Blooms, and striving for sustainable practices.

Flowers are a visual representation of love. They have the unique ability to evoke emotions in a visual and symbolic way, beyond where simple words can reach. From your wedding day, a birthday, or a baby shower, to a celebration of life or a gentle "you got this" on a hard day – we're here for the meaningful moments.

+ MODERN DESIGNS.

Using artisan florals and modern mediums, each Love Always Floral design is uniquely created.

With an emphasis on natural composition, texture, and unconventional colors + flower varieties, from weddings and large scale installations to a Tuesday "just because" delivery, our work is crafted with intention and artful precision.

Our team of florists are skilled, creative, and continuously educated, using a multitude of mediums for all of your "think big!" ideas and executing your vision with dedication to all the dreamy details.

"Our goal is to create arrangements as you would see them in a garden. We focus on that airy, negative space and a whimsical, natural feel versus a highly structured design."
