Muted Cotton Candy Pastel Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

My favourite thing about Janelle and Kenny’s summer wedding at Pineridge Hollow was hands-down the colour palette: we chose a watery, muted oyster palette with dusty pinks, light blues, and lavenders. When I picked up my flower order and saw how the flowers were starting to come together, I got REALLY excited. Like, really excited. It was like a cotton candy dream come true! And just look at how beautiful the colours with the bridesmaids’ dresses were!

I think it’s pretty obvious why I loved these flowers :) It was such a lovely combination! Janelle wanted her bouquet to be a pretty good size but not too huge, and designed in a modern cascading style. The bridesmaids carried simpler handtied bouquets, all to coordinate with Janelle’s - isn’t that cotton candy pastel palette to die for?

Bridal Bouquet ingredients: several varieties of roses, dahlias, locally grown lisianthus and zinnias, delphinium, blue bells, and globe thistle with this gorgeous trailing jasmine and nagi foliages to help create that cascading shape. It’s pretty hard to choose a favourite ingredient in these bouquets, but I think it’s a tie between the “zinderella” zinnias and the globe thistle for me!

The wedding ceremony took place in front of the gardens at Pineridge Hollow, which were beautifully in bloom! I really went for it with this large, asymmetrical floral piece added to the arch. I loved adding in the very long, full branches of white poplar - they add a ton of texture thanks to the leaf’s shape and colour variegation, and of course, the shape that the full, arching stems creates can’t be beat. Mauve roses and pink lisianthus filled out the florals! We also added simple greenery bouquets down the aisle. I don’t normally recommend doing too much down the aisle as I personally prefer to keep the focus at the front, but these guys were super cute and definitely added to the woodsy feel.

Inside the tent, Janelle created a really great floor plan with a mix of both rectangular and round tables. White linens, mahogany chivari chairs and gold accents set the perfect neutral backdrop. The round tables had a low floral arrangement, with a touch more vibrancy than the bouquets but overall a very similar palette, and the rectangular tables featured loose greenery tucked along the length of the table (PSA the tables at Pineridge Hollow are quite narrow, so just keep that in mind if you’re planning a wedding there!) with individual roses in blush and mauve and gold candleholders added in. It was a very full table, but looked beautiful!

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.

Emily and Adam's Romantic Pineridge Hollow Wedding

Emily made such a beautiful bride, and has such great style - as evidenced in the romantic wedding at Pineridge Hollow she planned for herself and Adam! One of my favourite things about their wedding was the palette I got to work with: light but still moody, elegant, and somewhat dramatic. Neutral but still interesting! And I LOVE that Emily chose a soft, dove grey wedding gown!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: Earl Grey rose (such a lovely, delicately tinged rose that's almost white but is slightly grey/lavender), plum ranunculus and scabiosa, locally grown anemones, iris and foxglove, yarrow, stock, and sweet pea along with mixed foliages including foxglove and Israeli ruscus.

The freckles on the foxglove worked as the perfect transition between the softer tones and the plum, and the addition of the peachy pink yarrow and the stock just added some more femininity. The locally grown iris was a last-minute find at my wholesaler that I'm sure I'll never be able to get again, and technically I hadn't budgeted for it but I just had to include it! It was the perfect shade of softest blue that tinged more towards the grey and was perfect with her dress. I finished the bouquet with trailing grey ribbons, in silk and pleated satin. I loved this bouquet!

Emily also asked for a floral crown for herself. I made it with soft pink and white spray roses and yarrow, and it looked really lovely on her. It just added to the feminine, romantic vibe she was going for.

The reception was at Pineridge Hollow. Emily chose long tables (if this is the way you go, just keep in mind that their tables are very narrow!) and collected a variety of mismatched antique china teacups for centrepieces. I loved the petite arrangements that I got to do in them - soft pinks and lavender tones, with mostly locally grown flowers. A bonus to this day was that I ran into my sister and her daughters while setting up, and my little nieces so desperately wanted to help me set up the wedding! It was the cutest thing - my 4 year old niece Penny went straight to my flower box and started pulling out centrepieces and carrying them over to tables. Not to be outdone, 9 year old Lily very quickly came to my aid as well!

Buttercream by Alareen provided the cutting cake, and I had so much fun adding the fresh flowers to it. This picture below is a little sideways - the flowers cascaded down the front, with ivy trailing with them. Every baker has different preferences about whether or not they want to add the flowers themselves to the wedding cakes, but I'm perfectly happy to do it. I'm totally comfortable making the stems foodsafe and I'm a bit paranoid when it comes down to it - I don't want any flower "juices" making their way into your delicious cake, let alone any chemicals that might on the blooms themselves.

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.

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!

Crystal and Jason's Organic Fall Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

Crystal was such a delight to work with. With a distinct vision for her wedding to Jason, I had a lot of fun helping her to plan this organic fall wedding at Pineridge Hollow.  She really loves rich colours, so the burgundy and navy that we wove throughout the florals was perfect. She also had this amazing idea for me to come and basically cut down her entire antique hydrangea plant the week of the wedding. Well, hers didn't last super well so she arranged for me to cut from the plants that a local business were growing. It made me SO happy.

I love the delicate hint of colour in Crystal's bridal gown! She was wearing pearls when we first met, so I wasn't surprised that she wore them again on the wedding day.

Bridal Bouquet ingredients: antique hydrangea, astilbe, dahlias, roses, mums, scabiosa, snap dragons, snowberries and viburnum berries along with leather leaf fern, jasmine vine, and nagi foliage. I finished with soft blue and mocha silk ribbon.

The ceremony was on the back of Pineridge Hollow's property, a small clearing in the woods. I dressed up their birch arbor with this simple, but large, arrangement of fresh and dried hydrangea. 

At the front of the aisle sat two large wine barrels, one with a greenery garland and candles and the other with this enormous (and heavy!) arrangement of hydrangea, delphinium, smokebush, and tailing greens.

The reception details were some of my favourites! Crystal hand-died these cheesecloth table runners the perfect smoky blue tone, and collected these gorgeous brass pots for me to use as centrepiece containers. These were so cool - she bought them for a song at a furniture store that was closing out. The store was charing a lot for them because they had expensive faux plants in them, but when they found out that she just wanted the pots, they gave her a great deal - which is amazing, considering these things cost a fortune regularly!

Above the reception space, we created a greenery installation that was a lot of fun (and terror) to create. The grapevine globe lights from Event Light were a gorgeous addition.
