Kristen and Ryan’s summer wedding at Cielo’s Garden was, in a word, PERFECT. It was perfect! And I had so, so much fun planning, dreaming up, and designing these flowers. Kristen always wanted a rich, vibrant summer colour palette but a few months before the wedding, she changed it up a bit to make it even moreso - and let’s talk about how excited I was! This woman obviously has great style and it wasn’t hard at all to see her vision. It was an honour to bring it to life!
This bouquet. Oh, this bouquet! I just LOVED putting it together. Each and every stem was just perfect. Shades of coral, peach, mixed berry pinks, orange, and a hint of yellow with rich, jewel toned greenery came together as the perfect colour combination for this vibrant, summer wedding - and looked phenomenal with the guys’ blue suits and the girls’ forest green gowns. Even better, most of these flowers were locally grown!
Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: garden roses, zinnias, lisianthus, scabiosa, strawflower, sweet pea, asters, and phlox with italian ruscus, nagi, and jasmine vine.
The Cube has never looked so good :)
When Kristen changed her colour palette, she also changed the plan for the ceremony design. I can’t even remember what the original plan was…this was just THAT MUCH BETTER. She had an inspiration picture that was built off an arch structure, so I had some serious figuring to do in terms of the mechanics and how to make this big beast work - it’s actually several different pieces designed together. We kept the vibrant colour palette going here to make a major statement in the otherwise very neutral chapel: orange, coral, peach, berry pinks, and TONS OF GREENERY. Doesn’t it look so good? (PS this was a SUPER hot day and making this baby resulted in a lot of sweat. I actually sweat through my entire bra that day 😂)
Seeing this much colour in the tent at Cielo’s Garden brought a LOT of happiness into my life. I feel like we normally see a lot of soft, feminine tones or rustic wood tones here and while those both look really good here, one of the things I love the most about Cielo’s is that it’s so easily adaptable to any colour palette and almost any style. Kristen ordered these dusty rose table runners online and they added a really nice layer of texture to the tables.
We focused the florals on one large arrangement per table, designed in my favourite copper bowls. Aside from the greenery, these arrangements were actually 100% locally grown - woohoo! That always makes me SO happy - I love that I can be supporting a local farmer, while minimizing our environmental impact. Not needing to ship flowers in means not needing a large amount of fuels to trek those flowers across the world. Plus, local flowers are just more special!
Kristen, thank you so much for choosing me to carry out your vision! It was such a thrill to be a part of your wedding day.
