When I first started talking with Stephanie and Kurt about their wedding flowers, it was actually at an open house for Cielo's Garden! I was struck by the way they interacted with each other. Kurt was just SO sweet in the way that he deferred to Stephanie, allowing her to explain their vision and how they wanted their wedding day to look and feel.
That laidback attitude was going to be a large part of the wedding day - the couple really wanted to have a simple, comfortable wedding. The colour palette of deep plum, watery grey/blue, nude, blush and gold brought an elegant feel to the overall design, and was really fitting for the setting.
Any time I have a chance to play with berry tones I am a happy lady! This was a very feminine take on a berry tone palette.
Bridal bouquet ingredients: roses, dahlias, ranunculus, cosmos, anemones, succulents, Queen Anne's Lace, silver dollar eucalyptus and agonis foliage.
And here we are, back at one of my favourite places for couples to get married at! The chapel at Cielo's Garden is an incredible building. With open sides and stone walls, complete with a bell to ring post-ceremony, it's basically perfect on its own but I think it's even better with something at the front to frame the altar. Planner Amanda Douglas shared this awesome sketch with me when we started planning, and I love that the design turned out just right:
First off, Amanda helped Stephanie and Kurt to choose this two-toned drapery to create a dreamy focal point at the front of the chapel. We then added in all of the floral-accented lanterns that were being used as the centrepieces. Some of them were placed down the aisle on crates, and some were hung from the open rafters at the front. And of course, that colour palette is gorgeous for an elegant, fall feel - sage greens, burgundy, berry pinks, light pinks, and cream. Dy-na-mite.
So, this was a different guest book table than I'm typically used to. Ha! When Stephanie first told me that she wanted to me to floralize a skull for the guest book table, I'll be honest: I had a really hard time envisioning how this could be nice. And while it felt super weird while I was doing the designing, I have to say that I love how it turned out. It's sort of like this deer gets to have a beautiful floral halo.
