"A Jodi Leigh event is a flawlessly executed design bursting with flowers and stylish decor that perfectly reflect the style and personalities of their clients."
MEET JODI LEIGH
As owner and creative director of Jodi Leigh Designs, I feel strongly about our clients getting a sense of who we are as individuals and as a team. I self titled my company and built our brand with the belief that developing a strong relationship with our clients will allow them to trust us to curate and execute an event that is a memorable representation of their individual style and personality.
Since opening Jodi Leigh Designs in 2009 my passion has always been to create a custom design for each one of my clients. Your event should be a representation of your style and personality. My favourite part about the entire process aside from the reveal is the design consultation. I love meeting people, hearing about their lives, how they met, where they are coming from and what they anticipate the future to bring. I believe that during our meeting you should get the goosebumps at least once, feel like you have known me for years, and leave our office feeling like, “she totally gets us”. When I am not meeting with clients, working in the studio, or onsite for an installation, you will find me spending time with my beautiful family and maybe sneaking in a visit or two to Homesense.
Over the past 7 years I have worked very hard to bring together the perfect team of professionals to help me carry out my dream of building a company and brand that clients can rely on to take their ideas from a vision to a logistically sound and magically stunning celebration.
Katherine is the floral manager at JLD. Flowers have always been a passion of hers and she has been working with flowers for almost 20 years. She has worked and managed at some of the top floral design event companies in Toronto constantly learning along the way. Throughout her career she has won floral design awards, had her work featured in the top wedding magazines across Canada and discovered the art that goes along with styling flowers. Whether it is an 8 ft tree made from flowers to a bridal bouquet each piece is one of a kind. She has developed a unique style throughout her career that is constantly growing in each piece she creates. She can take the simplest flowers and turn them into pieces of art making every floral arrangement she does an original.
When Katherine is not constantly thinking of new designs, researching new techniques or in the floral studio she is with her one and only, her son Ewan who keeps her on her toes and always smiling.
Lisa has been a floral designer specializing in weddings for nearly 13 years.

In the studio, Lisa is driven by layering textures and subtle colours with the perfect touch of greenery to achieve elegant bouquets and arrangements for all of our discerning brides.

Alex is the newest member of our team and we are very excited to have her. She is extremely creative and some may say, obsessively passionate about plants and flowers. As a floral designer, Alex’s work can be described as whimsical and romantic, with a garden-fresh style. She looks at floristry as an adventure and she is always working to expand her craft, this allows her design style to be forever evolving. Alex's favourite thing about being a designer is inspiring people through her work and seeing the joy her creations bring to others.
When Alex isn’t in the floral studio, she is likely out exploring nature or working on another creative project. You could catch her doing anything from gardening, to cooking, to calligraphy. Alex is married to her husband James and with their dog Oliver, you can often find them hitting some hiking trails or hopping in the car for a road trip to somewhere new. Although she has never been one to shy away from trying something new, Alex always finds herself back in the studio, working closely with nature.
