I can’t believe it’s been about a year since Jen and Aaron’s intimate fall wedding at Deer + Almond! It was such a beautiful, peaceful day and one that I was thrilled to be a part of. Jen is a really stylish person, and was pretty open to my suggestions as to flowers so with the combination of her fantastic taste and my creativity, I really loved what came together for them. And for goodness sake…her dress!!
Oh, how I loved this bouquet! A seasonal colour palette that was at once warm and romantic, built around peaches and rust with touches of coral and mauve tucked in. I used some incredible textures in here that are only available in the fall and that’s what made it so special! And doesn’t it look so great against the navy the bridesmaids wore, and with Jen’s incredible necklace?
Flower Ingredients: Ranunculus, roses, spray roses, mums, astrantia, ilex berry (oooo baby!), ninebark foliage, copper beech foliage, and ruscus.
The ceremony was held at The Canada Museum for Human Rights, on one of the upper terraces. For an intimate guest list, this space is PERFECT. The tyndall stone half wall, all of the natural light and the soaring ceilings all add up to a beautiful setting. We kept the decor simple here, with my copper arch simply strung with lightweight garlands of Italian ruscus.
I know I’ve said it before: I LOVE RESTAURANT WEDDINGS. This was my first time working at Deer + Almond and it was great! It’s a small space so the guest count was limited, and the room has some really interesting paintings and graffiti style art on the walls so you want to work with that. We kept the decor plan simple: fresh greenery with peach and orange blooms, and lots of candlelight. I know some people do not like floating candles because they are very '“typical,” but I don’t mind them at all! They’re more budget-friendly than pillar candles and most venues in Winnipeg don’t allow taper candles, so floating candles are a good way to bring height to the table.
