Kristen and Ryan's Perfect Summer Wedding at Cielo's Garden

Kristen and Ryan’s summer wedding at Cielo’s Garden was, in a word, PERFECT. It was perfect! And I had so, so much fun planning, dreaming up, and designing these flowers. Kristen always wanted a rich, vibrant summer colour palette but a few months before the wedding, she changed it up a bit to make it even moreso - and let’s talk about how excited I was! This woman obviously has great style and it wasn’t hard at all to see her vision. It was an honour to bring it to life!

This bouquet. Oh, this bouquet! I just LOVED putting it together. Each and every stem was just perfect. Shades of coral, peach, mixed berry pinks, orange, and a hint of yellow with rich, jewel toned greenery came together as the perfect colour combination for this vibrant, summer wedding - and looked phenomenal with the guys’ blue suits and the girls’ forest green gowns. Even better, most of these flowers were locally grown!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: garden roses, zinnias, lisianthus, scabiosa, strawflower, sweet pea, asters, and phlox with italian ruscus, nagi, and jasmine vine.

When Kristen changed her colour palette, she also changed the plan for the ceremony design. I can’t even remember what the original plan was…this was just THAT MUCH BETTER. She had an inspiration picture that was built off an arch structure, so I had some serious figuring to do in terms of the mechanics and how to make this big beast work - it’s actually several different pieces designed together. We kept the vibrant colour palette going here to make a major statement in the otherwise very neutral chapel: orange, coral, peach, berry pinks, and TONS OF GREENERY. Doesn’t it look so good? (PS this was a SUPER hot day and making this baby resulted in a lot of sweat. I actually sweat through my entire bra that day 😂)

Seeing this much colour in the tent at Cielo’s Garden brought a LOT of happiness into my life. I feel like we normally see a lot of soft, feminine tones or rustic wood tones here and while those both look really good here, one of the things I love the most about Cielo’s is that it’s so easily adaptable to any colour palette and almost any style. Kristen ordered these dusty rose table runners online and they added a really nice layer of texture to the tables.

We focused the florals on one large arrangement per table, designed in my favourite copper bowls. Aside from the greenery, these arrangements were actually 100% locally grown - woohoo! That always makes me SO happy - I love that I can be supporting a local farmer, while minimizing our environmental impact. Not needing to ship flowers in means not needing a large amount of fuels to trek those flowers across the world. Plus, local flowers are just more special!

Stephanie and Christian's Pastel Garden-Inspired Wedding

With one of my very favourite wedding colour palettes, Stephanie and Christian's pastel wedding was filled with garden-inspired florals and delicate touches. I truly, truly loved being a part of this day! There were a lot of beautiful floral details that were included, with some of my favourite flowers, making this one of my most memorable weddings of 2017. Scroll through for more details!

This is probably my favourite palette to work with for bridal bouquets: pastels! I love it because it accomplishes the soft, romantic feel that many couples are looking for, while being a lot more interesting than just white and blush. For Stephanie, I was thrilled to work in a lot of the light purple and lavender tones, with a hint of pale blue along with whites and pale pinks. 

Bridal bouquet ingredients: garden roses (some of my favourites, in fact!), sweet pea, delphinium, Ontario-grown spray roses, and Manitoba-grown lisianthus, anemones, ranunculus with a mixture of eucalyptus and nagi foliages.

Let's take a moment to love on the gorgeous tones of these bridesmaids' dresses. Those dusty mocha and lilac tones are complete perfection.

I LOVE working with this palette in the Provencher Room at the Fort Garry Hotel. The soft ivories, golds and champagnes are gorgeous there, especially with gentle touches of pastels worked in through the flowers. The gold chivari chairs and these medallion overlays are actually one of my favourite linen/chair combos that Winnipeg has to offer so I was super excited to know that this would be the setting the stage for the rest of the decor!

You'll notice that we did several styles of centrepieces, as the floor plan was varied between round tables and long rectangular tables. We combined trios of tall, curved glass vases with greenery arrangements on the long tables, and alternated low floral arrangements in bronze urns with greenery wreaths encircling trios of candles on the round tables, while the head table was set apart simply with a long, oversized greenery garland lain down the centre of the table. This table design was completed with the re-purposing of the large gold urns from the ceremony and two greenery wreaths, tied onto the bride and groom's chairs.

Danica and Braden's Summer Wedding at Ashgrove Acres

Danica and Braden's summer wedding my first time being out at Ashgrove Acres (which is just outside of Niverville) and it was such a gorgeous day! The weather was perfect, the flowers were gorgeous, and the bride? Woah nelly. Talk about a knock-out.

Danica's bouquet gave me SUCH serious shivers. I couldn't handle my excitement when I was putting it together! It had just a few different varieties in different shades, and was just perfect.
Bridal bouquet ingredients: standard roses and garden roses, sweet pea, ranunculus, Queen Anne's Lace, laurel leaves, silver willow foliage, Italian ruscus, foraged smokebush, and foraged olive.

I don't know where they took these photos, but could it be a more perfect location? Those tall purplish blooms are actually weeds, but man, they create such a dreamy atmosphere. The pale dove grey bridesmaids' dresses were a gorgeous compliment to the soft palette.

The venue at Ashgrove Acres is really quite beautiful. The sheer draping along the ceilings creates a really soft, delicate effect and this particular colour palette works really well there. When it came to the centrepieces, Danica loved the idea of long, trailing arrangements without the hindrance of a container. I designed these arrangements to sit low along the table, in this romantic palette using a few varieties of roses, locally grown lisianthus, and locally grown Queen Anne's Lace. Personally, I don't think it could have been prettier!

Intimate Pastel Wedding at the Qualico Family Centre

S & E's wedding was a really lovely day to be a part of this past summer! It was a really intimate wedding, without a bridal party, and a pretty pastel colour palette. In a summer full of white and green wedding palettes, I have to say that these pastel tones were a welcome addition!

Her bridal bouquet was just lovely! Blush O'hara garden roses, ranunculus, stock, locally grown scabiosa and locally grown lisianthus were paired with several varieties of eucalyptus and jasmine vine.

There was a bit of a hitch at the ceremony site, and sometimes that happens and you need to roll with it! The Temple had assured the bride that we'd be able to attach flowers right onto the chuppah, but when I arrived to set up, the answer was a very firm no. The chuppah frame was pretty light and not very sturdy, so it wouldn't have been the best idea anyways. But, it still meant that I needed to get creative because these flowers were not going to go to waste! Luckily, I asked my husband to come along with me on this set up, and he rushed home to pick up my wood stands. I really wasn't sure how the arrangements were going to look placed on top of them, but I actually really liked it in the end! The way the jasmine vine fell down the boxes was really pretty and gardenesque.

For centrepieces, we did up a simple arrangement in pretty pastel tones. They also smelled AMAZING. Finally, I brought along extra locally grown blooms so that Kayla from Laugh Love Cakes could add them to the cake, and I love the way that turned out!

Garden-Inspired Wedding at a Private Mansion

Stephanie and Corey's wedding literally couldn't have been more amazing. The florals were garden-inspired, the bride has unreal style, and the reception was set at a private mansion. Say what?! Yep. Straight up fantasy-turned-real-life. Take a look at these incredible photos from Luckygirl Photography to see some of their day!

Navy Bridesmaid Dresses - Garden Inspired Wedding Ideas

These bridesmaids are so chic! All in elegant navy gowns, and so not the typical "bridesmaid" dresses. I created petite posey style bouquets for them, using a small handful of white garden roses and the most amazing white stephanotis vine. Each of these bouquets only has one stem of vine in them! They were so heavy with blooms that I just wrapped the vine in and out of the bouquets. It added such a sweet scent!

I really loved Stephanie's bridal bouquet! All white and green, with a few hits of deep plum with some locally grown scabiosa touches. Her bouquet had all the best blooms: white roses, white garden roses, white dahlias, white ranunculus, and that gorgeous stephanotis vine!

Private Mansion Wedding - Winnipeg Wedding Venue

I can't even get over this incredible space! This is a private mansion in Winnipeg, featuring its own ballroom. It was initially built as a wedding gift by the bride's parents - isn't that amazing? Someone can build me a mansion any day now. I won't complain.

Behind Corey, in the picture above, you can sort of see the greenery installation I created on the fireplace. Designing this piece was one of the happiest moments of my entire summer wedding season. It was so much fun to do something different than the usual!
