Natalie McLain  | 970-828-8000


Natalie is an award winning floral designer with 12 years experience. She moved to Durango, Colorado from New Orleans, LA in 2004. While in New Orleans she fell in love with all things southern, big beautiful blooms, jasmine, camellias, magnolias, old architecture, and mint juleps. She uses that southern influence and combines her designs with the rustic elements found out west. While her personal style is influenced from Southern roots, her passion revolves around her clients. Each client is as unique as the floral combinations they are inspired by. Natalie's passion lies from each clients vision and using her expert knowledge and skills gained in the floral industry to create their dream.

Our flowers were above and beyond what were expecting! Natalie from Adela flora hit our color scheme spot on and created breathtaking arrangements. We especially loved the succulents in the flower crown and groom's boutonniere. She is so talented! -Hallie & Alex

Couple Stops At Nothing To Have The Wedding Of Their Dreams

They chose to marry at Purgatory Resort because they wanted to share the vast beauty of Durango with family and because they grew up snowboarding at Purgatory together, so it was very sentimental. So sentimental, that when the 416 Fire shut down the resort 3 weeks before their original wedding date (07/07/18), they postponed the wedding instead of changing the venue.
