Marie Raley is the owner and lead designer/stylist at Laine Moire. Early on in life she learned to appreciate the natural aesthetics and overall beauty of flowers and greens. Her parents and grandparents are avid gardeners. Marie and her mom would go into the woods and pull grape vine to make wreaths. Her dad would take Marie on walks and teach her all the different trees so she could differentiate them by their leaves and needle structures. Every season the mantle was decorated with flowers and greens from their gardens and the woods. Today, she has her own gardens for fresh picked bouquets and children to take on nature walks. She is so excited that she can use her love of nature to design and style events.

We have been lucky enough to have worked along side two great photographers, Lace/Hanky, LLC. Photography and Ben Colvin Photography. With their help and our floral design and DIY assistance, two of our weddings have been highlighted in Minnesota Bride’s Real Weddings section. Both weddings used a mixture of our floral design, event styling and DIY assistance.

“I was referred to Marie through a friend for my wedding flowers. My experience was top notch. She was on time and more than prepared for our meetings. She brought great ideas to the table to maximize my “look” while staying under budget. The thing I liked the most was that She asked questions to get to know me and my style to execute the details better than I imagined! Also, I was impressed with her knowledge of a variety of flowers. She really knew what would look great for our special day. I highly recommend.”

“Marie is an absolute delight to work with. Creative, insightful, and a calming presence. For our Seattle, Washington wedding we had our hearts set on “simple” flowers from Pike Place Market. As often happens with DIY dreams, something seemingly simple often becomes quite complicated when actually mapped out. I could not have executed all of my DIY wedding dreams without Marie. Marie lead my bridesmaids in assembling their bouquets and the groomsmen’s boutonnieres on the morning of the wedding. Equipped with our buckets of farmer’s market flowers, she also assembled our flower arrangements on-site at the reception venue. Marie is quick on her toes and is great at improvisation, when our boutonnieres lacked greenery she went out into the garden and found what was needed to fill them out beautifully. When it was clear that ribbon was in abundance at our reception venue she created a cheerful backdrop to our photo booth. Marie understood and executed my DIY vision perfectly..”

“Before speaking with Marie, I hadn’t put much importance on flowers while planning my wedding. In fact, I had intended to DIY them. After working with Marie in a brainstorming session where she presented ideas based on my overall theme, I realized what a mistake that would have been. I underestimated the ability of flowers to pull the entire look of a wedding together. Marie was so much fun to work with and put as much thought and care into designing the bouquets and arrangements as she would have her own wedding. The outcome was breathtaking, and I got SO many compliments on how unique and beautiful the flowers were. They were both classy and natural looking. I can’t recommend Laine Moire enough for floral or any other styling needs- Marie has such an incredible eye for design!”
