About The Florist


Jackie McLaughlin

Jackie is an artist known for floral design and concept driven installations using natural resources of any kind.

Based in Kelowna, Jackie serves the whole Okanagan Valley, the Lower Mainland, and worldwide as a destination wedding and event florist.

After earning her degree in Fine Arts, Jackie spent time teaching both locally and abroad. It was after her return to the Okanagan from living in Taiwan that she founded her floristry business in 2020.

She is fascinated by the relationship between humanity and nature; the dichotomy of humanity depending on nature but threatening it at the same time. Her business practices always seek to apply methods that are least harmful to our environment, rejecting the use of floral foams, chemicals and single-use plastics when possible.

Jackie’s work is infused with a sense of whimsy and artistry. Her creations are often playful and remind us that flowers are not just carriers of beauty but also vessels of joy. Her designs are known to turn ordinary spaces into extraordinary experiences. For her, it is not just about arranging flowers; it’s about painting life.

Jackie’s work has been celebrated in galleries, events, and homes across the globe. Her artistry has been enjoyed at weddings, corporate gatherings, and intimate celebrations.


I founded JAM Florals as a small, sole proprietorship business in 2020, right in the middle of the COVID pandemic. While this may seem like odd timing, especially considering events and most gatherings were disallowed, it actually worked out quite well in that we were able to take on many weddings and events that were either postponed or that other florists could not accommodate. Thus began our journey, with welcomed success.

We are grateful for the overwhelming support and guidance we’ve received from our Okanagan community, as we navigate the world of wedding and event florals, as well as our professional artistic endeavors. I am thankful for my husband and business partner, and for our freelancers’ tireless help each year.
