Meet The Team

Rachael O’Neil

Owner | Lead Designer

A Pacific-Northwest native transplanted into the Midwest. A lover of perfectly-baked macaroons, beautifully designed rooms, and that perfect hat. Rachael’s passion for creativity is expressed through designing flowers with her unique flair that will fit all different kinds of styles and themes. She has been working professionally with flowers for the past ten years, and brings that experience to all of her clients. Rachael and her husband Ryan have been bit by a travel bug, so in their free time they’re quite the globe trotters! You can reach Rachael and her team at weddings@twistedwillow.co.

Ryan O’Neil

Owner | Business | Marketing

Our creative marketing guru. You can find Ryan working on ten projects, and reading seven different non-fiction books, at one time. He is an Arkansas boy, who loves living in St. Louis because of the BBQ, start-up community, and culture. He has his Bachelors in Business, and Masters in Education, but his recent focus has been on a fantastic start up called Stemcounter.com.

Ruth Freeman

Designer

Ruth is our all-around flower girl. In her free time, she’s in her garden planting her own hydrangeas but on wedding weekends she’s in the shop arranging them for weddings. A St. Louis native who is mother to five with a penchant for sweet tea, she can be found traveling to events in Colombia (Go Tigers!), out at the family farm, or at one of her kids sporting events.
