I consider it one of the most incredible honours whenever a fellow wedding vendor reaches out to ask me to be a part of their wedding. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of being a part of several this year (this one was a major highlight!) and have a few more next year, as well. Today’s bride, Austin (the lady behind the camera at Austin Kylie Photography), is a little more special than other wedding vendors because I’ve also known her for most of her life! Her sister and my sister are best friends (you can see her gorgeous winter wedding here!) and it’s been really cool to watch her develop this talent with photography and have the chance to work with her on several weddings.
Anyways, Austin’s wedding was such a delight to be a part of! She has a fairly romantic, feminine style and right away she selected blush and gold tones. I suggested that we add in some berry tones to add depth, and it all came together really beautifully.
Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: Peonies (the MOST gorgeous peonies of the year!!), quicksand and amnesia roses, white bleeding heart (from my garden and the perfect little touch!), tulips, scabiosa, fragrant sweet pea, with ninebark and eucalyptus foliages. We finished the stems with trailing Stella Wolfe hand-died silk ribbon.
The bridesmaids carried petite versions of Austin’s bouquet with a simpler shape, which complimented their range of dresses really nicely. Sometimes when you’ve got a mix of different styles, textures, and fabrics like these bridesmaids did, it’s better to go a little simpler on the other elements!
Austin had her two Oma’s acting as flower girl, which is probably THE sweetest thing I’ve seen. Just look at these ladies! How adorable!
For decor at the church, we started with an arch with a floral garland hung asymmetrically across it, and added on two large altar arrangements on thin gold stands. It created a lovely focal point in an otherwise fairly plain church, and were all pieces that could be re-used at the reception as well.
The Human Rights Museum is pretty dark, which can make taking photos challenging but it also creates a fun ambiance. Austin selected to upgrade to gold chivari chairs and champagne toned linens, with a few sequinned gold linens for the family and bridal party tables. We chose three different centrepiece styles - a trio of stem vases with petite arrangements, the second a collection of candles with a rose petal base, and finally, a fuller floral arrangement with gorgeous berry pink peonies in a low gold vase (obviously these were my faves!).
