Burgundy and Gold Fall Wedding at Qualico Family Centre

I’m continuing on with sharing more or my fall weddings, even though what we’re all longing for right now are the lazy, hazy days of summer :) Those days will be here in a flash, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned from working in weddings, it’s that time moves very quickly. One minute you’re engaged and getting married in a year and a half, and then next you suddenly find yourself collecting RSVPS and making your floor plan. So, those fall weddings are really just around the corner!

Jaclyn and Chad’s wedding was in September at the Qualico Family Centre, featuring a palette of burgundy and gold with a fairly formal feel and some really beautiful flowers.

Oh, how I LOVED Jaclyn’s bouquet! It was lush and delicious with one special little ingredient: faux lily of the valley. I don’t normally use faux flowers, but Jaclyn’s grandma’s favourite flower was lily of the valley and since that’s only available for about 12 minutes in May, I suggested I track down a high quality silk and it worked beautifully. It tucked in really nicely!

Bridal Bouquet ingredients: burgundy dahlias, quicksand roses, sahara sensation spray roses, mauve astrantia, rice flower, and antique carnations with hasmine vine and nagi foliages. The spray roses were actually a sub for something else that I was hoping to get, but in the end, they were actually my favourite variety in the entire bouquet!

I always like working at the Qualico Family Centre. Why? Because it’s so easy to make beautiful! It’s a nice, neutral space on its own with a warm and airy feel thanks to soaring ceilings and enormous windows, but with the right colour palette in there, the space really becomes something special. Personally, I love using warm neutrals with an accent of rich colour at Qualico. You can see how the gold and champagne tones are the perfect base, and the accents of burgundy are just delicious.

The focal point of the reception design was definitely the head table. Set in front of a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, the long table was set apart with a contrasting sequinned linen and a full greenery and floral garland lining the front. On the guest tables, we alternated tall arrangements with low ones. The tall were designed on a baroque-style brass pedestal we sub-rented from Dream Day Decor, and the low arrangements were a lush combination of blooms from the bouquets in my ceramic brass urns.

Simple White and Pink Wedding at Qualico Family Centre

Carmelle and Brandon are such a lovely couple. My husband and I actually went to high school with Brandon, so when Carmelle inquired I was super curious to find out if it was him. Then, I realized that they were also our back lane neighbours at our old house! She used to see my Stone House delivery vehicle driving around the neighbourhood all the time :) It was wonderful to be a part of their simple white and pink wedding this summer at the Qualico Family Centre.

Megan Steen Photography did such an amazing job capturing the sweet, calm nature of this wedding day!

I love the way the soft sage green bridesmaid dresses paired with the delicate pink of the bouquets. There was something about it that was so simple and fresh! 

Bridal Bouquet ingredients: pink garden roses, locally grown ranunculus, stock, tulips, hypericum berries, eucayptus and ferns.

This picture of Carmelle stops me in my tracks. Isn't she stunning? 

At the reception, we kept the floral decor quite simple. The Qualico Family Centre looks beautiful in soft shades of white, ivory, cream, gold, champagne and green. So, simple arrangements of white hydrangea and eucalyptus foliage was perfect!

Natalie and Mark's Marsala Fall Wedding at Qualico Family Centre

I met Natalie just a few months before her wedding. Sometimes, a short timeline like that stresses me out, but definitely not in this case. Natalie had such a clear, lovely vision for their fall wedding at the Qualico Family Centre in Assiniboine Park. The primary colour in their palette was a rich marsala, and we worked in champagne, gold, ivory, and soft pink. Natalie even handmade tons of paper flowers to use at the reception! More on that later :)

Aren't these photos by Ariana Tennyson just gorgeous?

I always like setting up wedding receptions at the Qualico Family Centre in Assiniboine Park. The space is really lovely - all of the floor to ceiling windows allow in so much natural light (and a gorgeous view, especially in the fall with all the leaves!), the stone fireplace is gorgeous, and the overall colouring of the space creates a nice soft, warm setting.

For the centrepieces, I used a combination of fresh flowers along with the paper flowers the bride made by hand - they were so beautiful and so fun to use! I also got to add a few floral touches throughout the room, including to the donut display.
