Chelsea and Jason's Romantic Outdoorsy Wedding

When Chelsea first came to me, she told me that she and Jason wanted to have an outdoorsy, laid-back wedding but still have some feminine, romantic touches to it. Pineridge Hollow was totally the perfect place to host their wedding, and the flowers and colour palette really brought everything to life. 

Also, a strange side note: when I met with Chelsea, I knew I recognized her. I just couldn't quite put my finger on where I knew her from. She didn't recognize me, but that tends to happen to me. I remember every face and no one ever remembers me (truth). Then it suddenly hit me out of nowhere: we played basketball against each other in junior high. HA! I felt like such a champ for remembering. She still didn't remember me ;)

One of the best parts of Chelsea's bouquets was that almost everything was locally grown. Just a bit of the greenery and the roses came from outside of Manitoba!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: lisianthus, foxglove, delphinium, phlox, nigella, roses, feverfew, and several varieties of greenery.

I LOVE the colours and the dresses chosen for the bridesmaids. This is mix-matched bridesmaids done right: a light floral pattern, lace, tulle, soft pink and seafoam green. Isn't it a gorgeous combination? They look incredible!

OH. And Chelsea's dress? INCREDIBLE! I couldn't find the exact one but here are a couple of similar gowns - this one in a glamorous ivory/silver combination and this one has a little more casual, feminine feel.

Pineridge Hollow Wedding - Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

So, then we get to the outdoor ceremony! This clearing in the woods at Pineridge Hollow is a dreamy space for a ceremony with a natural feel. They have this great 4 post birch arbor, and Chelsea asked me to make some sort of floral piece for it. I really went for it! Using cream and blush roses, light blue delphinium, and soft, sage-toned greenery, this asymmetrical floral piece was installed onto the arch for the ceremony and then re-used on the head table afterwards.

We kept things pretty simple at the reception with greenery garlands and plenty of candlelight. The tent there is so white, so my favourite things to do there are either 1) keep it really simple - aka, lots of green and white and warm neutrals or 2) go for it with a lot of colour so that the white allows it all to pop!

Autumnal Magic

Earlier this fall, my friend Kat Willson (and amazing photographer!) asked if I would collaborate with her on a last minute, moody photo shoot. I loved how it all came together: there was a bit of rain in the sky, the perfect amount of yellow leaves were peaking through the trees, Natalie's hair and makeup was perfect and easy, and we found a gorgeous spot in the middle of Bird's Hill Park. We even saw a little family of deer when we pulled up!

Graceful Wedding Ideas

Back in the spring, my time at Team Flower Workshop culminated in this stunning tablescape design that all of the girls worked on together. Kelly Perry of Philosophy Flowers had put the most stunning elements into place and man, has that girl got style! Here are some highlights, with florals by Philosophy Flowers and Team Flower, calligraphy and paper products by Brown Linen, gown from Gossamer Vintage, and the gorgeous photos from Heather Payne Photography. We were incredibly excited to have this editorial featured on my favourite, Once Wed!
