One misty summer day last year, I headed up to Kenora to the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club for Carolyn and Nick's wedding. Aside from the touches of rain that sprinkled down throughout the afternoon, it was a beautiful day for the wedding! Nick is from New Zealand, so Carolyn came up with the idea to include plenty of ferns in all of the flower arrangements. I guess ferns grow all over the place over there, though I wouldn't know, having never been!
We met Carolyn's dad at her aunt's cabin, and he boated across the lake to meet the bridal party, and then across the lake again to get to the Yacht Club! It's always an adventure setting up for weddings there, as you never know quite how long it's going to take to get there and how bumpy the ride is going to be. We loaded all the flowers into the back of the boat, and covered it all up so the rain couldn't get to them.
I love the photos of the newlyweds with the the sun setting over the lake in the background!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: hydrangea, faith roses, ranunculus, sweet pea, zinnias, blushing bride protea, stock, Queen Anne's Lace, scabiosa, fern, ivy. The zinnias, sweet pea and scabiosa were all locally grown, which was such a treat. My studio was beautiful that week!
Carolyn wanted to keep things soft and feminine, so we used a lot of soft pink and white in the flowers. The blue of the bridesmaids' dresses picked up the hues of the lake really beautifully.
