Laurie and Joël's Summer Tent Wedding

One very wet and rainy Saturday in August, Laurie and Joël got hitched! This was an incredibly awesome wedding for me to be a part of. Not only did I design the florals for them, but I also coordinated the wedding. I don't normally do that, but when Laurie asked, I couldn't say no -- she's just SO sweet. She's the kind of person who makes you feel like she's known you forever and has a way of making you feel special. Their ceremony was one of the best ceremonies I've ever seen. A reading from The Princess Bride, shots of whiskey, and the most gorgeous vows I've heard were all part of it. So despite the mucky grass and a windstorm that knocked the whole tent down (don't worry, it was well after all the guests had left!), their day was just amazing.

Some of my favourite parts of this wedding: 
-The flower girl. She was just the sweetest and so excited to be a fairy princess flower girl wearing a crown :) 
-Growing some of the ingredients for Laurie's bouquet in my own garden! Sweet touches of basil and rosemary were awesome.

Luxurious Purple Wedding Centrepiece

Last week I shared with you the bouquet and boutonnieres I designed at the flower workshop I attended earlier this year. Today, it's all about the centrepieces! 

This one all started with the lilacs! Some more of my favourites were added in, which was exciting because they're not varieties I can always get my hands on: hellebore, foxglove, and some seriously amazing greenery varieties like honeysuckle and elaeagnus. Plus, I love how the purple tones look against this deep navy velvet backdrop. Can this please be your wedding palette? Pretty, pretty please? I promise I'll make you pretty flowers :)
