Ainslie and Josh’s modern wedding at SMITH on the September long weekend was one of my favourites of the year! Normally, an all white and green palette doesn’t get me too excited, but I have to say that I love the way this one come together. Modern, clean, and simple elements created a stunning design.
The couple lives out of province, so most of our planning was done over email (though I did get to have an initial in-person meeting with her, which gave me a really good opportunity to get a feel for her style). I really enjoy working with out of town couples - they tend to put more trust in the professionals that they hire rather than micromanaging us, which in my opinion always results in the best final product. It gives us the chance to think outside of the typical Pinterest box and come up with something great for each couple!
I may go a little over the top with bouquet pictures here. Kamp Photography did an AWESOME job of taking these flower photos (not every photographer does, so I always LOVE it when they do!) and I really love how they turned out. Ainslie wanted her bouquet to feel organic and somewhat natural without being too crazy. Her all white and green palette was punctuated with deep hits of super dark textured bits to make it interesting.
Bridal bouquet ingredients: garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, scabiosa, and privet berries with jasmine vine and silver dollar eucalyptus with burgundy smokebush foliage for a little extra depth.
I just posted another wedding at SMITH a few weeks ago, and it had a completely different feel. I love how we went with a modern, minimal vibe for Ainslie and Josh’s wedding. Ainslie had a very specific budget that she was comfortable spending, and within that budget and her style and colour palette, she let me do basically whatever I wanted. I elected to keep the arrangements streamlined, with single-ingredient arrangements of white stock in geometric black vases, smaller arrangements in stem vases, and plenty of mod black pillar candles. I also used floating black candles in copper lined bowls, and tucked in some loose greenery on each table. I loved the stationery that they ordered from Minted - the table numbers, place cards and menus perfectly completed the look!
This is a lot more food photos than I would normally include, but GUYS. Look at this! How AMAZING does this wedding reception look? Live music, unreal appetizers, a cake spread from Jenna Rae Cakes…serious ambiance right here!
