We began as a love.... or ... more like obsession.... for succulents.
Founder, Jaime Lohr began using them in her wedding decor and fell in love with them.
She kept buying more and more succulents until she realized there were too many for her to NOT share so she decided to use her creative background and her large spread of little succulents to spread some "succi" love.
We source our succulents locally and love to support other small businesses through the products and decorations we use in our projects and gift boxes.
Whether you want to add some greenery to your home or want to create an earthy centerpiece for your next big event, we have you covered.
From very early on Jaime could be found among the flowers and gardens. Growing up in Virginia in her country grandparents' and her family's suburban gardens and yards, she was encouraged to grow and harvest flowers, fruits, and vegetables.
In the summer of 2018 Jaime focused her sights on succulents as she used them throughout her wedding, including her bouquet!
Having a business and art degree university background, Jaime decided to open her succulent business and name is You Had Me At Aloe.
Jaime started out as a vendor at farmers' markets offering beautiful and intricate hand-painted pots and locally sourced succulents for sale. As COVID subsided and more people ventured out, her business transitioned into teaching workshops thereby reaching more people with the similar succulent obsession as well as people who were new to "plant parenthood". Join Jaime for your succulent journey!
Amy is a retired school teacher with an impressive resume of teaching all over the East Coast and in California. She has brought her experience to You Had Me At Aloe Co. to help others (and their succulents) grow!
She grew up on Long Island, NY and enjoys her time these days in sunny Florida with her husband. Amy has two daughters - we bet you can guess one of them!
She has a passion for art and creativity and has been able to explore those skills in new ways by incorporating live plants and succulents into her work. Get to know more about Amy by signing up for one of our workshops - we can't wait to see you soon!
