Feminine Garden-Inspired Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

Meredith and Dylan’s wedding at Pineridge Hollow was such a sweet, feminine day with a garden-inspired style. What I remember from when I sat down with her was that she really wanted the flowers to soften the inside of the tent, and make it feel like an outdoor garden party. We planned a few different ways to bring the outdoors in and kept everything really soft, pretty and girly!

Meredith’s bouquet was feminine, fragrant, and ruffled with a bit of a whimsy. I loved the pastel lavender accents mixed in with the soft pink and cream palette.

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: White o’hara garden roses, lisianthus, larkspur, stock, yarrow, scabiosa, veronica, and nagi foliage.

We also did a hair piece for each of the women - I decided to do them all on combs so that however each of the girls chose to wear their hair, the floral could be easily tucked in. Aren’t they so cute?

I love this outdoor space at Pineridge Hollow! I think they call it their woodland area, and it’s such a lovely ceremony spot (though it’s always been SUPER HOT every time I’ve been there…just a head’s up - I think this spot gets a lot of sun!). The couple provided the arch and the drapery, and we designed the airy and light floral piece on-site (it’s always a treat to be able to do this!) and added the greenery bouquets to the aisle.

One of the statements we wanted to make at the reception was at the head table. I love creating hanging installations and I think there’s no better way to bring the outdoors in. This piece was whimsical, airy, and really natural. It was built on a branch that I scoured all spring for (I have a bit of a branch hoarding tendency), using moss, airy plumosa fern, and larkspur - all chosen for their lightness!

I also built a greenery installation at the tent opening so that when guests walked in, they were greeted with a feeling of the outdoors. You can sort of see it in the picture below :) We did a few different centrepiece styles, all with candles added, and I also added fresh flowers to their cute little cutting cake.

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.

Romantic Winter Wedding at Whitetail Meadow

So now that spring is on the horizon, shouldn't I finally post this winter wedding inspiration at Whitetail Meadow? ha!

I LOVE being a part of venue open houses - it gives me a chance to get creative and envision the space differently than it's been used for weddings so far. If you follow my work, you'll know that one thing that's really important to me in my designs is creating something that's different than what your friends have had for their weddings. However, when you're working at a brand new space, you're not hampered by anything! Such was the case for the open house I recently got to design for at Whitetail Meadow, a brand new venue open just outside of Niverville.

If you are in search of a location for your wedding, make sure you put Whitetail Meadow on your list. The structure is a refurbished barn, so it can accommodate weddings at any time of year. They did a beautiful job on the renovation, with hardwood floors, a stone fireplace, and a loft space. Ceremonies can be held on the adjoining veranda, in the meadow out back, or near a small creek, so you can really have whatever kind of setting you'd like! I'd love to do a winter wedding  here with the ceremony taking place on the staircase landing, and just covering the staircase with greenery and flowers. I can dream!

For the open house, we designed a romantic winter wedding setting, featuring a palette of pastel pink, purple, and copper hues. 

We borrowed this invitation suite from Jennifer Bianca Calligraphy. It was actually designed for a different couple's real wedding, but it worked so flawlessly with this design as well! I love the difference that a little colour makes. Those soft pink envelopes are just perfect.

Tedi and Evan are a real-life couple, and they actually work in the wedding industry, too! They own The Picture & The Poet, a dual studio offering both photo and video. They're so much fun, so if you're looking for some goofy, hilarious people to spend your wedding day with, check out their work. Also, Tedi has THE DAINTIEST HANDS AND WRISTS I HAVE EVER SEEN. I feel like she needs to be hand-modelling professionally. 

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: I wanted to keep this one really simple, so that's what I did. Lavender roses, lavender spray roses, soft pink roses, and Queen Anne's Lace mixed with a few types of greenery. Easy peasy pie.

If your venue has a focal point, such as this fireplace at Whitetail, then I HIGHLY recommend using it, and using it well. Allow it to truly be the spotlight that it was designed to be. Here, we've imagined a ceremony taking place in front of it, and then the head table placed in front of it during the reception. It's a great design, because the mantle is high enough for me to design statement-making florals on the mantle. 

Below are my initial sketches (super amazing, I know. My next career will be in art fo sho).

We kept the guest tables in keeping with the rest of the overall design. While Whitetail has these beautiful wood tables, we decided to add this textured copper linen to create a more elegant base. It paired really nicely with the venue's mahogany chivari chairs as well as the gold flatware we got from C&T Rentals. All of the place setting details are from them!

One large floral centrepiece was set in the middle of the table, and we clustered candles and stem vases on either end of the tables. Something to note when you're using rectangular tables is to keep in mind the width of the tables - I went a little overboard with the size of the arrangement and would have preferred it to be a little more streamlined.

Seriously. Look at how delicate those beautiful little hands are. And that's Tedi's own engagement ring, which they found through Heidi Gibson in LA.

Jessica + Jason's Sweet Wedding at Bridges Golf Course

Jason and I went to elementary and junior high together, and he has a pretty unique last name, so when Jessica sent me an inquiry and mentioned his name, I thought: there's no way there can be two of these guys that I don't know about. I was right! Jason was always fun and goofy, and it was so nice to then meet Jessica and find out that Jason was marrying a delightful, charming, kind and lovely woman. They are the sweetest!

Jessica and Jason had a sweet wedding at Bridges Golf Course, and I worked with a light, airy palette of blush, white, and pale blue. Jessica was pretty open to what flowers I used, and seeing as they got married in May, I chose to use peonies (obviously), locally grown double tulips, sweet William, delphinium, spray roses, campanula, and per Jessica's request, baby's breath!

Riverwood Church Wedding - Indoor Wedding Ceremony Winnipeg

The wedding ceremony was in the mezzanine area at Riverwood Church - isn't is gorgeous? The couple built this arch and I added this floral piece to the corner. It just needed this one piece and all the attention was drawn to them!

Then we headed over to Bridges Golf Course! Their reception space is always beautiful. It's on the rustic side, with lots of natural light, and it looks great with a soft or neutral colour palette. When we were talking about centrepieces, we needed to strike a balance between lovely and fresh, and cost-effective. I love floating flowers and their striking simplicity, so I thought, let's do peonies. We floated a single blush peony in a glass vase, with a trio of gold-rimmed votives around. It looked lovely!

Rarely do I get to do the flowers on the wedding cake, and so this one was a TON of fun for me! A friend of Jessica's made the cake, and I added a few clusters of floral and greenery (all were made food-safe, don't worry! I'm super cautious about naked floral stems going into a cake. I don't want any flower juices oozing into your wedding cake!).

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!
