Natalie Walsh is the Owner, Lead Event Designer, and Creative Director of Hello Darling. She’s a self-proclaimed flower junkie whose obsession grew from exploration of the gardens and woods surrounding her childhood home in Minnesota. There she pretended that all the woods were hers as the delicate violets at her feet and giant trees above her head created an absolutely magical wonderland to be enjoyed every second possible. Winters were spent indoors, building petite room vignettes, complete with lounge furniture and lighting, where she’d throw fabulous fêtes for her fashionably dressed Barbies.
Her passion for nature and fabulously styled settings are now married year-round at her floral and event styling company Hello Darling, which she opened in 2005. Her one-stop shop of pretty personalization is as friendly and fun as it is couture and chic. Since opening Hello Darling she has enjoyed being a part of so many of her clients’ events, seeing their visions turn into a reality that is far beyond their wildest dreams, and creating amazing moments for everyone in their presence to experience.
Before making the big leap into her Darling world she was flexing her creative muscles by photographing weddings, interiors, fashion, and fine art, all the while freelancing as a floral designer and being the little creative tornado of craftiness that she is to this day. Her unique skill set allows her to visualize and actualize all the aspects that go into creating a perfectly personalized, timelessly gorgeous event.
“Basically, I’m a major sucker for beauty and I think it’s an important part of life. Whether you create it or enjoy it, beauty changes our lives, broadens our horizons, connects us to each other, and brings so much joy into our minds and hearts.”
