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.

Janna Morley

Office Manager

People are her passion. Things she looks forward to on a daily basis are strong coffee, dark chocolate, and nap time! Janna is currently working on perfecting her headstand, and finishing her bachelors degree in General Studies with a concentration in Psychology. When she feels a burst of creativity, she enjoys sewing and watercolor painting. Her most recent accomplishment is successfully completing one round of Whole 30! The two most important men in Janna’s life are her husband Eric, and her adorable son Henry. They are her biggest fans!

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.

Jill Bangert

Designer

It’s all in the details! Jill’s precision and eye for the little details is what makes her so beneficial to the team. Not only does she have fun designing flowers, she enjoys jewelry as well. Typically she can be spotted sporting her own designs. A mom of four, and a grandma to one and a half, she is often with her family. Her free time is filled with reading, watching the latest chick flick with her daughter, and traveling to the warmer climates of Florida and Mexico!
