Owner, creative director
AKA “Chief Flower Lover”
Founder and owner Lindsey Raridon is the creative visionary behind Petals to Platinum’s recognizable style. Lindsey’s unique approach and eye has been featured in some of the most distinguished wedding publications in the country, including Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, and Junebug Weddings. As a completely self-taught florist with almost 20 years of experience, Lindsey takes a distinct approach to wedding floral design. She began working with flowers in highschool in the grocery store floral department and continued into college working at a floral shop. Although her methods and artistry have been refined over the years, one thing hasn’t changed: the way Lindsey loves to bring joy to others through flowers.
Lindsey is a Nebraska native, born in Omaha and raised in Lincoln. After a stint in Chicago, she and her husband Jeremy were thrilled to move back home in 2012. When Lindsey isn’t fluffing a centerpiece or triple-checking a floral order, she’s probably sitting with their 50-pound border collie Elly ... in her lap! Lindsey loves crafting, gift-giving, entertaining, wine tasting, new culinary experiences, and traveling.
AKA The Comic Relief
Emily is the lead floral designer at Petals to Platinum and has almost 20 years of experience as a florist. She and Lindsey met when Lindsey was in highschool and they were both working in a floral department. Emily always knew Lindsey would open a shop of her own someday, and they are thrilled to be working together all these years later. Emily enjoys art projects, gardening, sewing costumes for her two kids, and spending time with her neighbors.
Fun fact: Emily taught Lindsey how to create her first bouquet!
