Bright and Colourful Summer Wedding at The Qualico Centre

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!

Lauda and Jeremy's Colourful Summer Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

I loved being a part of this colourful summer wedding at Pineridge Hollow. When we first met, Lauda sort of had a vision for her wedding flowers, but it hadn't completely come together yet. By the day of the wedding, it all came together so beautifully. It was incredibly fun for me to work with all of this colour, and I used about 90% locally grown flowers so I loved that even more! 

I love these photos from Sugar & Soul Photography so much!

Colourful Summer Wedding - Pineridge Hollow Wedding

Laura's bridal bouquet was cheerful, vibrant, whimsical, and a complete breath of fresh air for me. It's so fun to design something that's different from the norm. Her bouquet included: Foxglove (one of my faves!), dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, marigold, asclepia, and veronica. I loved using this rich palette of purple, magenta, pink, orange, and blue. 

A few days after the wedding, Lauda stopped by with a thank you card, and a mini bouquet of flowers she had picked out of her own garden. They matched perfectly with the flowers in her bouquet - it was so sweet of her!

Aren't the purple bridesmaid dresses just perfect with the colour palette? And you know I love tiny flower girl bouquets! The lovely bridesmaid at the end is my friend, Tracey! We used to work together.

I'm not sure where this garden is that the couple went with Mel from Sugar & Soul Photography, but it is just flower heaven. Isn't this the perfect summertime setting?

Over at Pineridge Hollow, more colour was in order! The tent is so white and clean, which of course is lovely, but it just begs for colour. I loved Lauda's idea - we used different sized jars and containers to line the tables, each with a bouquet of colourful, locally grown flowers! Jeremy built this incredible wood backdrop to place behind the head table, and isn't it beautiful? It added so much to the space.

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients

I'm so thrilled and honoured that this bouquet was just selected by Weddingbells as one of their "Most Beautiful Bouquets of 2016!" You can see the full feature here.

I love breaking a bouquet down into it's ingredients - I'm not much of a cook (though I love to bake!), so this is my version of a recipe card. I designed this bouquet over the winter at our Flower Friend Day, and I worked with a few flowers that I don't normally get to use, along with some standards that will always be favourites. It was nice to try new things and see how they worked together! It was also great to use a colour palette that I don't typically work with. Here's hoping that my 2017 brides will want me to use more colour in their floral designs!

Re-Cap: July in Weddings!

July was a great and busy month for me! We saw 5 weddings, and another 2 that I was actually in as a bridesmaid and officiant. It was a great way to kick off the busy months of August and September! Each of my weddings was very different, and I got the chance to play with some great combinations. Here's a peek at the month of July in wedding flowers!

Bold Hued Wedding Flowers

I'm one of those people who tends to choose neutral or pastel colours and has a huge black section in my closet, and yet always finds myself drawn to bold, bright hues. So earlier this year, I decided to give in to my secret love for bold colours! I cannot get enough of those bright magenta anemones!
Thank you Victoria Anne Photography for the bright photos!
