We believe every couple deserves a beautiful wedding.
Our Mission: To give every couple the wedding of their dreams.
We founded Once Upon a Time because we wanted to help couples in Topeka, Lawrence and Kansas City bring their wedding vision to life. Our business combines the services of a florist, wedding planner, rental company and lighting team all under one roof.
Corla Ladner - In 1977, Corla made her debut in the floral design world. More than 20 years later, she's still making beautiful flower arrangements. She loves glitz, glamor and bling and is not afraid to use it! As a mother of three daughters, Corla went into wedding design for one simple reason - all brides deserve a beautiful wedding.
Ali Ellis - As an experienced advertising professional and event planner, Ali brings a lot to the Once Upon A Time team. She knows all the tricks to saving money without sacrificing style. Her personal style is a little more vintage and muted, but truly unique.
Ivy Dibbern - A recent bride and service industry veteran, Ivy knows what it takes to make a dream wedding come together. Ivy likes anything funky and fun, so let her help you with your one of a kind celebration.
