Muted Cotton Candy Pastel Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

My favourite thing about Janelle and Kenny’s summer wedding at Pineridge Hollow was hands-down the colour palette: we chose a watery, muted oyster palette with dusty pinks, light blues, and lavenders. When I picked up my flower order and saw how the flowers were starting to come together, I got REALLY excited. Like, really excited. It was like a cotton candy dream come true! And just look at how beautiful the colours with the bridesmaids’ dresses were!

I think it’s pretty obvious why I loved these flowers :) It was such a lovely combination! Janelle wanted her bouquet to be a pretty good size but not too huge, and designed in a modern cascading style. The bridesmaids carried simpler handtied bouquets, all to coordinate with Janelle’s - isn’t that cotton candy pastel palette to die for?

Bridal Bouquet ingredients: several varieties of roses, dahlias, locally grown lisianthus and zinnias, delphinium, blue bells, and globe thistle with this gorgeous trailing jasmine and nagi foliages to help create that cascading shape. It’s pretty hard to choose a favourite ingredient in these bouquets, but I think it’s a tie between the “zinderella” zinnias and the globe thistle for me!

The wedding ceremony took place in front of the gardens at Pineridge Hollow, which were beautifully in bloom! I really went for it with this large, asymmetrical floral piece added to the arch. I loved adding in the very long, full branches of white poplar - they add a ton of texture thanks to the leaf’s shape and colour variegation, and of course, the shape that the full, arching stems creates can’t be beat. Mauve roses and pink lisianthus filled out the florals! We also added simple greenery bouquets down the aisle. I don’t normally recommend doing too much down the aisle as I personally prefer to keep the focus at the front, but these guys were super cute and definitely added to the woodsy feel.

Inside the tent, Janelle created a really great floor plan with a mix of both rectangular and round tables. White linens, mahogany chivari chairs and gold accents set the perfect neutral backdrop. The round tables had a low floral arrangement, with a touch more vibrancy than the bouquets but overall a very similar palette, and the rectangular tables featured loose greenery tucked along the length of the table (PSA the tables at Pineridge Hollow are quite narrow, so just keep that in mind if you’re planning a wedding there!) with individual roses in blush and mauve and gold candleholders added in. It was a very full table, but looked beautiful!

Feminine Garden-Inspired Wedding at Pineridge Hollow

Meredith and Dylan’s wedding at Pineridge Hollow was such a sweet, feminine day with a garden-inspired style. What I remember from when I sat down with her was that she really wanted the flowers to soften the inside of the tent, and make it feel like an outdoor garden party. We planned a few different ways to bring the outdoors in and kept everything really soft, pretty and girly!

Meredith’s bouquet was feminine, fragrant, and ruffled with a bit of a whimsy. I loved the pastel lavender accents mixed in with the soft pink and cream palette.

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: White o’hara garden roses, lisianthus, larkspur, stock, yarrow, scabiosa, veronica, and nagi foliage.

We also did a hair piece for each of the women - I decided to do them all on combs so that however each of the girls chose to wear their hair, the floral could be easily tucked in. Aren’t they so cute?

I love this outdoor space at Pineridge Hollow! I think they call it their woodland area, and it’s such a lovely ceremony spot (though it’s always been SUPER HOT every time I’ve been there…just a head’s up - I think this spot gets a lot of sun!). The couple provided the arch and the drapery, and we designed the airy and light floral piece on-site (it’s always a treat to be able to do this!) and added the greenery bouquets to the aisle.

One of the statements we wanted to make at the reception was at the head table. I love creating hanging installations and I think there’s no better way to bring the outdoors in. This piece was whimsical, airy, and really natural. It was built on a branch that I scoured all spring for (I have a bit of a branch hoarding tendency), using moss, airy plumosa fern, and larkspur - all chosen for their lightness!

I also built a greenery installation at the tent opening so that when guests walked in, they were greeted with a feeling of the outdoors. You can sort of see it in the picture below :) We did a few different centrepiece styles, all with candles added, and I also added fresh flowers to their cute little cutting cake.

Nicole and Zach's Country Wedding at Rustic Wedding Barn

When Nicole and I first sat down to talk about her wedding, she had a pretty clear vision of what she wanted, with one exception: the colour palette. See, her favourite colour is red, and her now-husband Zach’s favourite colour is orange. She knew she wanted the bridesmaids in a wine tone, and was really struggling to figure out how on earth to add in orange while making it look and feel elegant for their country wedding at the Rustic Wedding Barn in Steinbach. My immediate thought was to go for a deep, rich wine red in the flowers and instead of doing a florescent, Crayola kind of orange, to use peach. In the end, we decided to add in some soft corals and mixed pink tones to blend the palette and I really love the way it turned out! I so rarely get to work with any tone of red and it’s always fun to get creative.

Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: Garden roses and standard roses, ranunculus, hypericum berries, scabiosa, antique carnations, and a few little locally grown poppies in the perfect peach. I finished the bouquet with several varieties of eucalyptus foliages and dusty miller.

The colours looked great with the bridesmaids’ dresses and I think is a better take on orange than going fully orange ;) And of course, the bright navy that the guys wore just rounded it all out perfectly!

I really like the chapel space at the Rustic Wedding Barn. They built it a few years ago in a hayshed style, outfitted with soft draping, faux greenery installed above the aisle, and whitewashed wooden benches. There’s also a beautiful 3 piece wooden arch backdrop and for Nicole and Zach’s wedding, we decided to do a very large floral piece above them - and let me tell you, that sucker was huge. It doesn’t look quite so enormous in the pictures, because the centre arch itself is about 15 feet high, which I didn’t realize! We had to scale two ladders to get up there, holding up the soaked floral arrangement with water slowly dripping into our armpits 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’m not sure I would recommend this style of arrangement again - it looked fantastic, but it was truthfully just a LOT of work to get up there and get it right.

I also added two greenery garlands, added asymmetrically to the two outer wood structures. It all framed in really nicely! Nicole had added little glass terrariums down the aisle which we sprinkled bits of greenery in, along with mixed stem vases placed throughout the wooden crates around the altar. And at the very back, placed on wine barrels to flank the entrance, were two of these gorgeous brass lanterns Nicole provided me with, set atop full wreaths of greenery and floral. Lots of detail went into this overall design and it was all Nicole’s vision!

At the reception, Nicole wanted me to create an interesting focal point for the head table and left it open to my creativity. The barn already has drapery behind the table, though Nicole changed up the design to something she liked better, and it also has copper bars suspended horizontally above the table with faux greenery tucked in. First, we decided to add in some fresh greenery to the faux, just to bring a little more life to the space. Then I came up with the idea of swagging and hanging hand-strung carnations in a mix of peach, burgundy, and antique pink, also suspended from those copper bars. I really loved the way this turned out - as with any idea, it can be tough to envision and particularly with the rounded barn roof, I wasn’t confident that I was going to be able to hang the strands at the correct heights and so on. But it was something I really wanted to do and thought would look awesome, and I am so glad that Nicole trusted me. I wanted the strands to look like they were just dripping from the ceiling!

Nicole had designed the guest tables with great detail, with a champagne table linen and soft gold sequinned table runner, wood charger plates and cross-back chairs (which aren’t normally there…I feel so badly for the crew who had to set them all up because they had to be carried up the stairs by hand! Seriously, we all need to give major props to the rentals crews!), and then wanted a mix of candlelight and florals for the centrepieces. She spray-painted mason jars gold and then had me do an arrangement in similar colours and textures to the bouquets. It was a very detailed reception and one I’m sure guests loved to be a part of - particularly because there was also an EPIC candy bar, dessert station, popcorn bar, and gorgeous hand-painted cookies at each place setting. I’m confident no one could have left that wedding hungry!

Jessica and Liam's Jewel Tone Summer Wedding

Jessica and Liam are possibly the sweetest couple I've ever met. They're just adorable - and it doesn't hurt that Liam has the BEST Irish accent. It was so much fun to be a part of their wedding (and you might recognize them from this styled shoot last year that they modelled for!), specifically because Jess LOVES colour and really wanted to go for it - which, as you all know, makes my heart sing. Their wedding planner, Amanda Douglas, did a great job of guiding them to choose a vibrant and beautiful combination of jewel tones that worked beautifully together.

Bridal bouquet ingredients: peach Juliet roses, light and dark purple stock, coral ranunculus, magenta snapdragons with italian ruscus and sprengeri fern.

We wanted to go with rich jewel tones, while adding in a touch of vibrancy to bring more life to it. I can't tell you how totally perfect those garden roses were!

It's been a few years since I've been out at the Rustic Wedding Barn so the ceremony space was new to me. They have done a really great job in there! For the ceremony flowers, Jessica wanted to go a little more subtle so we toned down the colour.

Jess+Liam-836.jpg

The reception was full of flowers, from the large piece we did on their head table to the colourful centrepieces on each guest table. The champagne linens were a great, subtle base for the rest of the colour. And in a space like this, I would always recommend keeping those centrepieces low to the table - with it being a longer, narrower space, I think that tall arrangements would feel too hectic in there.

Karen and Scott's Intimate Fort Garry Hotel Wedding

Karen and Scott were married early this spring in an intimate wedding at the Fort Garry Hotel and it was basically a dream wedding for me to be involved in. The circumstances weren't the best, as Scott's mother in Winnipeg was ill and the couple (from Vancouver) decided to change their original plans from a West Coast wedding to a small Winnipeg celebration in just a few weeks. When we started emailing I think there were 4 weeks to their date, and still a number of details to be confirmed, but I'm proud to say that Winnipeg wedding vendors really came together for them. When I arrived on the morning of the wedding to deliver Karen's bouquet, she said how amazed she was that they were able to create such an incredible wedding in a short period of time and said it was all thanks to how great Winnipeggers are. Go us!

So here's why I said that their wedding was a dream: despite the sad circumstances that caused the re-scheduling, Karen and Scott still wanted to throw a really fantastic party. They wanted it to be an incredible celebration, where their families could be spoiled and have an amazing time. They went all out with the floral decor, seated everyone at one long table, and chose an awesome menu. Because the wedding was in March and the hotel wasn't busy with other weddings, they were actually able to host the reception in the foyer between the two large ballrooms on the 7th floor - and let me tell you, there is no hallway more gorgeous, anywhere.

Bridal bouquet ingredients: Spirea, peonies, ranunculus, anemones, quicksand roses, and jasmine vine.

My next favourite thing about their wedding was their attire. The couple said right off the bat that they like more modern, unique designs and then Karen showed me a pic of her INSANE red cocktail dress. Is this not incredible, or what? Scott wore a slick checked jacket with a subtle red stripe through it that my husband was literally salivating over.

The ceremony took place in the fireplace loge on the 7th floor, where I have ALWAYS dreamed of having a wedding ceremony. It's a really narrow space so it would be challenging to do with a guest list of more than 20 or so people, but it was perfect for them!

Isn't this hallway just THE most gorgeous setting? It's so luxurious and detailed. We decided to set the table fully, but simply with just two elements: repeated tall vases with organic arrangements, and clusters of tiny arrangements in cut glass stem vases. Most of the florals were white and green, but I also tucked in some soft, sandy pinks and beiges to warm it up and fit with the setting really well.
