English Garden Themed Wedding at St Charles Country Club

I love a classic wedding every once in a while! Alexis told me that she wanted an ethereal English-garden themed wedding, with a ballet pink and sage green colour palette. I loved the antique floral inspiration and how Alexis was drawn to ruffly, big roses. The wedding came together really easily because she had such a clear vision of her style and I don’t think it could have been prettier!

For her wedding bouquet, Alexis didn’t want anything too perfectly shaped but also not too wild - just that perfect English garden mix. I used multiple varieties of roses and garden roses to achieve that full, ruffled look she was after and then tucked in some of my other favourites!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: White o’hara garden roses, faith roses, quicksand roses, locally grown foxglove and white sweet pea with trailing ivy and eucalyptus.

The reception space was kept fairly simple - since St Charles renovated their banquet room a few seasons ago, it’s become a really lovely, clean backdrop for this type of style. Look at all of that natural light! We decided to do a floral arrangement on each table after looking at some candle options as well, all set in these sweet little stone urns I have. I love the slightly worn patina - it lends itself so well to that garden feel. I tucked a little more green into these centrepieces with the Bells of Ireland, along with the prettiest locally grown phlox and snap dragons. I love using locally grown flowers as much as I can during the summer! And early August is the BEST time - those gardens are fully in bloom with all sorts of great stuff.

Elena and Jeremy's Romantic Spring Wedding at the WAG

If you like fluffy, ruffled flowers (like peonies, ranunculus, and stock), then springtime is totally when you should get married. That made May the ideal month for Elena and Jeremy's romantic spring wedding at the WAG. Seriously. Take a look at the fluffy dream cloud that was Elena's bridal bouquet (and by the way, if you love peonies, then check out this gorgeous springtime inspiration shoot I did at Cielo's Garden!).

Elena actually booked her wedding date around my availability - talk about an honour! Their entire day came together so beautifully. The couple has two sweet little kids and it was so lovely to receive these photos from Austin Kylie Photography and see their beautiful family. Even cooler? Elena grew up with my younger sister! We all went to school together when we were kids and I remember sleepovers in our bunk beds and tons of time playing together when we were little. 

I did a simple hair piece for the bride to wear, and white ranunculus boutonnieres for the men. It was all simple, classic, and beautiful!

And now we get to the decor! Sometimes, we have to go with the backup plan. Plan A for the outdoor ceremony (on the rooftop at the WAG!) was to have a 4 post chuppah with a lush floral garland added to the entire top. Unfortunately, the chuppah that was made didn't come close to supporting the weight of all the flowers that we had planned for.

SO, what did we do? After calling a few vendor friends to see if we could get an alternative arch that morning (sadly, that option didn't pan out but we tried!), we decided to forgo the floral on the top and instead attached two bouquets to the sides of the arch. We took all those flowers intended for the top of the chuppah, and moved those over to the head table. Can't wait to show you that beauty!

We did a combination of tall and short centrepieces in the reception space, which filled out the venue really nicely. Both of them features peonies, roses, and stock in whites,, blush and peach.Gold chivari chairs, gold-rimmed glass charger plates, and ivory linens from Planned Perfectly finished the design off beautifully.

Meredyth and Brock's Tent Wedding with Eucalyptus Garlands

When Meredyth and I first started planning her wedding flowers, we didn't actually have the opportunity to meet. I typically like to do an in-person flower consultation with all of my clients, but sometimes, a Skype meeting is the only way to go! Meredyth and Brock live a few hours away, in Brandon, and the wedding was going to be hosted out there as well.

Over the course of their engagement, we ended up changing the plan for the flowers a few times, but through all of the new ideas, one thing was very clear: Meredyth had GREAT style. The palette of soft blush and pinks, creams, and sage greens felt lovely and fresh in the all-white tent where they held their reception. In the end, we decided on simple eucalyptus garlands with a few blush roses tucked in here and there, gold-rimmed candle holders, and bouquets of cream and the softest pink that looked beautiful against the ballet-pink bridesmaid dresses.

I chose so many fantastic flowers for her, and she loved everything ruffly and girly. It was such a pleasure to be a part of this wedding! Oh, and seriously - not that I need to point it out because I'm sure that every one will already see it...but how hot is this bridal party!? Special thank you to Curtis from Moore Photography for the great images!

PS An extra special congratulations to Christine and Brent whose next big adventure is parenthood!

Breanne's Blush and White Bridal Bouquet in Assiniboine Park

Breanne was such a lovely bride to work with. You can tell from these images that she has a beautiful, romantic aesthetic. I loved her colour palette of blush, white and soft greens and it played so nicely against the richer rose colour of the bridesmaids. We really wanted her bouquet to make a statement so it was large and lush, and we kept the bridesmaids bouquets simpler to keep them more cost-effective. Special thank you to BLF Studios for the great photos!
