English Garden Themed Wedding at St Charles Country Club

I love a classic wedding every once in a while! Alexis told me that she wanted an ethereal English-garden themed wedding, with a ballet pink and sage green colour palette. I loved the antique floral inspiration and how Alexis was drawn to ruffly, big roses. The wedding came together really easily because she had such a clear vision of her style and I don’t think it could have been prettier!

For her wedding bouquet, Alexis didn’t want anything too perfectly shaped but also not too wild - just that perfect English garden mix. I used multiple varieties of roses and garden roses to achieve that full, ruffled look she was after and then tucked in some of my other favourites!

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: White o’hara garden roses, faith roses, quicksand roses, locally grown foxglove and white sweet pea with trailing ivy and eucalyptus.

The reception space was kept fairly simple - since St Charles renovated their banquet room a few seasons ago, it’s become a really lovely, clean backdrop for this type of style. Look at all of that natural light! We decided to do a floral arrangement on each table after looking at some candle options as well, all set in these sweet little stone urns I have. I love the slightly worn patina - it lends itself so well to that garden feel. I tucked a little more green into these centrepieces with the Bells of Ireland, along with the prettiest locally grown phlox and snap dragons. I love using locally grown flowers as much as I can during the summer! And early August is the BEST time - those gardens are fully in bloom with all sorts of great stuff.

Brittany and Jordan's Springtime Wedding at St Charles Country Club

I LOVE when I get to work with couples who I already know! Brittany and Jordan work with my husband, Chad, and they're a lot of fun. Both are geeky in the sense that they love superhero movies and comic books...and so do we. We've had a lot of fun hanging out with them, dissecting every last move of a Marvel or DC hero. So when they finally got engaged and we started talking wedding flowers, I was pretty excited!

Britt and Jordan's wedding was actually my first one of the busy 2017 spring wedding season, and it was SUCH a good way to start. The colour purple tends to get a lot of flack at weddings, probably because it was a little over popular a few years back and not always done in the nicest of ways. When Britt said she wanted to do shades of purples, I was all for it because I think purple can be done SO great. So forgive me for a little overly gratuitous posting of these bouquet pics courtesy of Megan Steen, because I LOVE THEM.

I always say that springtime is the best time to get married if you're a flower lover, and woah nelly, is that ever the truth. 

Bridal bouquet ingredients: peonies (some of the most glorious peonies I've ever had!), shades of purple and lavender stock, sweet pea, gorgeous deep purple scabiosa, and white ranunculus. I took about 85 pictures of this bouquet and they're all still on my phone because I just can't get rid of them. I loved this bouquet!

The wedding ceremony was supposed to be held in the garden but thanks to some mid-afternoon rain on an otherwise gorgeous day, they moved it inside. St Charles has this gorgeous fireplace that made for a pretty lovely backup location, and the arrangements that I did up for the garden were just moved inside. Sometimes, you just gotta do what you gotta do!

For the reception, we did up two styles of centrepieces that all brought in the purple. The mix of two styles helped with budget - style one was a low stone urn with a simple arrangement of purple hydrangea, and style two was a full, rich floral wreath with a lantern set in the centre. Brittany found all these different lanterns to use, which also brought in some variety and helped to make the room a little more interesting.

I love how these lantern arrangements turned out. I used a great variety of different flower shapes and tones of purple, ranging from more pinks to deeper purples. I used roses, button mums, stock, trachellium, Queen Anne's Lace and a few different types of greenery.
