Brittine and Jeff got married on my birthday. And I'll tell you what, guys: my birthday is at the end of August and it always has THE BEST weather. So basically, I'm a good luck charm. When we first met, Brittine told me she couldn't decide between a bright and colourful wedding palette, or, in her words, "a blush palette like every other basic white bride." I laughed, and then asked her to please, as a birthday present to me, choose to go with a bright colour palette. Mission accomplished.
I'm definitely a colour lover. I know that bright colour can be tricky to use at a wedding, and some people are afraid to really go for it (I'll be honest...I'm often one of those people!). But Brittine was not afraid! Her bridesmaids were wearing several different shades of blue, so for her flowers, we chose peach, burgundy, coral, orange, and greens. I LOVED it.
Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: dahlias, zinnias, gomphrena, cosmos, garden roses, stock, solidago, succulents, and boxwood.
Brittine and Jeff have two rambunctious dogs and I made these bright floral dog collars for them. They were so cute!
The reception was at the Qualico Family Centre in Assiniboine Park. I designed two different centrepiece styles, one with a large potted plant and mini floral arrangements, and the other with a larger floral arrangements and mini potted succulents. It came together really cute and was perfect for summer!
