Idaho Wedding and Elopement Florist

About Kelsey

Hi! I’m Kelsey Bandhauer, the founder, owner, and creative director of Semperflora. I’m over here with my sweet husband in our little corner of Southeast Idaho. I’m obsessed with all things flowers and plants and recently graduated with my bachelor’s degree in horticulture and floral design in April 2022!

I started flowering in 2019 with a few small projects and have since invested in my education and experience and flourished into a fully professional wedding florist! My designs are big, bold, and usually colorful. I love to express myself through personal projects and serve others through wedding and elopement work.

I’m a deeply passionate person, INFJ, and enneagram 4. I’m obsessed with all things jewel tones, deep woods, misty mountains, and am known to indulge in a daily dose of drama to stay inspired (think moody indie folk music, movies that make you question everything, oversized earrings, and bookshelves packed with trinkets). When I’m not flowering you can find me working at a local nursery, camping, frequenting the farmers market and local shops, and spending time with my wonderful husband and friends.

Kelsey is an absolute dream to work with! She made me the dried flower bouquet of my dreams and even re-made my pieces at the last moment when the first ones got lost in the mail. She is so talented, creative and kind - I would work with her a thousand times over if I could!

The Semperflora Story

Semperflora (adj.) - (Latin) always flowering

You might see the word semperflora in botanical names of plants – though only a few species tout the name. It literally means that plant is always flowering. Kinda like me! Always flowering. Well, plants do it better. I do need breaks sometimes

An interesting characteristic of plants (and people) that are always flowering is that it takes a considerable amount of energy and intention to produce such a result. They flower through frosts, through heatwaves, through storms. When other plants drop their blooms in times of stress, semperfloral plants have special adaptations to continue to produce. 

As a florist, I have my own frosts, heatwaves, and storms, some literal, some metaphorical. I also have my own adaptations to keep on flowering. At Semperflora, I do everything in my power to give my clients their dream flowers, from consultation to preserving dried flowers as keepsakes. Whether it’s ordering higher quality flowers, silk and velvet ribbons, showing up early to set up and coming back later that night or the next day to take down. You can trust Semperflora with a luxury floral experience for your wedding or elopement, with flowers and materials of the highest quality and a special interpretive design style that is adaptable to your unique vision.

Are We the Right Fit?

There are lots of florists out there! There are also lots of weddings and lots of clients, and I can’t serve everyone. Wondering if I’m the right florist for you?

The best fit – the client that Semperflora is the best fit for is someone who thinks of flowers as a top priority in their wedding. They’re excited about their wedding flowers, planning them months ahead, and invested in the interpretive design of their wedding flowers. Budget is still important but not a top concern. They want to build a relationship with Semperflora as the date grows closer and even maintain it after the big day.

A good fit – a client that would be a good fit for Semperflora is someone who doesn’t know much about wedding flowers and is looking for a professional to take over and make their dreams come true! Interpretive design is a bonus aspect but secondary to aesthetic. They may want to learn more about what flowers they can reasonably receive for a certain budget and how to make the most of it. 

Not quite right – a client that would not be the right fit for Semperflora is someone who is shopping around for the best deal. They are not interested in developing a relationship with Semperflora and do not see flowers as a priority in their wedding. Price is a top concern and they are likely to inquire without following through on further communication.
