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!).
Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: peonies, anemones and ranunculus (both locally grown!), and roses with touches of eucalyptus foliage.
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!
WOAH, GUYS. LOOK AT THIS HEAD TABLE. CAN EVERY COUPLE PLEASE ASK FOR THIS? I WILL HAPPILY OBLIGE.
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.
I'm going to be designing flowers for a few more weddings at the Winnipeg Art Gallery this year and I'm excited for all of them! Each is going to be so different.
