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!

Karen and Chris' Fall Wedding at The Qualico Centre

Karen was a dream bride to work with. She had some great ideas for her flowers, and wanted to hand over the rest of it to hear my thoughts and suggestions. We started with this great colour palette, working with the 2015 Pantone colour of the year - marsala - and tucked in tones of blush, cream, and dusty blues. With an early October wedding date, I was able to forage some autumn toned foliage to add in, and in the end, Karen's bridal bouquet was one of my favourites of the year!

The sweetheart table was intended to have a major impact, and I think the floral garland we added did just that. I loved being able to add in a lot of extras for her here - Karen was such a sweet bride, so being able to spoil them with a grand statement on this table was something I definitely wanted to do!
