Meet Our Team


Melissa Stratton - Owner & Creative Director

Melissa is the passionate, creative and skilled owner of Sadie's Floral. With seemingly endless energy and inspiration, she takes our client's ideas and brings them to life! With an impressive background in finance, event planning and interior & floral design, she has turned Sadie's Floral into one of the most sought after event companies in the Twin Cities. When she's not busy running her business, she spends time with her charming husband Reed and being a SuperMom to their wonderful son Forrest and baby girl Liv. When you meet her, ask about the time in her life that she spent as a snorkel instructor on a catamaran in the Caribbean!

Nikki Novak - Studio Manager & Customer Relations 

From Santa Fe, New Mexico, Nikki brings her Southwestern style to Sadie's, with a love of succulents and cacti. As one of our lead floral designers, social media coordinator and general PR go to, Nikki is in the know! She has a background in filmmaking and photography, and she uses those skills to make sure every detail is perfect and picture ready on your day! When you see her, ask about the feature films she's worked on and her love of green chile enchiladas!

Emily Quandahl - Lead Designer & Social Media

With a background in music and art, Emily draws on her skills to paint with flowers and make unique and beautiful designs for your special day. As an emerging abstract artist based out of Minneapolis, she spends her time submerged in beauty by painting and designing floral on the daily. Not only is she one of the resident creatives, she's also the voice behind our social media! Wondering who's curating those images and making those witty comments? Yeah, that's her.

Tara Johnson - Designer & Resident Handy Woman

Tara has been with Sadie's since the beginning and that makes her the go-to gal when anyone has a question! Not only is she the most upbeat person you'll ever meet, she's also a jack of all handy trades that keeps the Sadie's wheels turning. She keeps our shop organized and she keeps the morale high as the best cheerleader a team could ask for! Also, as a proud St. Paul native, she could tell you pretty much anything you could ever want to know about her home city. Go ahead and ask the next time you see her!
