Lynell Tagestad – Owner: Lynell trained under a leading balloon artist in 2007 to do large balloon décor and started the “I Do” business in 2008. As weddings became her primary focus, she then studied with the Floral Design Institute and obtained her certification as a Wedding Florist. She also obtained her certification in head table and backdrop draping. When not doing wedding decorating, she loves to spend time with her family, read books, work at home, and travel.
Daryl Tagestad – Husband: Daryl is Lynell’s right hand man doing everything from making centerpieces, driving the trailers, electrical, loading, designing, ceiling draping…he does it all! He is very talented with woodworking and this comes in very handy.
