Sara and Brent's All-Greenery Wedding

When it comes to simple weddings, I don't think there's anything quite so simple and pretty as an all-greenery wedding. Sara and Brent's wedding was such a fun one to be a part of - it was an intimate wedding, without need for too terribly much floral decor, so Sara chose to go with tons of greenery and texture instead!

I love the St Norbert Arts Centre. It is such a cool place for weddings! It's pretty small so it's ideal for intimate weddings like this one, and it's also such a neutral space that you can go really minimal OR you can go super bright and colourful. For Sara and Brent, we kept greenery on all the tables but alternated styles - half with a full garland and half with just really loose greenery laid down the length of the table, tucked in with candles.

We did a very simple sweetheart table design for them, with a greenery garland. The showstopper was definitely the cafe light string backdrop behind, from Event Light!

Lana and Carlos's Naturally Elegant Wedding at Clear Lake

There is something extra special about designing wedding flowers for a couple who shares my anniversary! Although technically, Lana and Carlos got married the day before my anniversary, their wedding was a few hours way (up at Clear Lake) so my husband came with me and we stayed the weekend! We snuck in a mini vacation at Elkhorn Resort and explored the town of Clear Lake a bit (which is ADORABLE). 

But back to the wedding! Lana and I did all the planning via email, since they live out of town. She pretty much left it up to me, after selecting the colour palette, vases, and communicating her style to me. I loved the way it turned out! We went with a very naturally elegant feel, using mostly creams with touches of blush tucked in to the bouquets.

I just happened to get these perfect cafe latte roses that week as a complete fluke, My wholesaler was testing them out and I knew they'd be perfect. That warm, rose golden tone was just incredible! I tucked them into a combination of standard roses, garden roses, locally grown foxglove, lisianthus, Queen Anne's Lace, delphinium and straw flower.

The ceremony was set on the lawn of a heritage building called Elkhorn Manor. They had built this wood arbor, and we added an asymmetrical eucalyptus garland with white roses. At the end of the aisle, I placed two large hydrangea arrangements - one on top of a wine barrel and the other set on the ground, both flanking custom-made wood signs.

I loved the custom barnwood backdrop the couple made that was set up behind the head table. It spanned the entire width, and brought the perfect rustic, natural feel to Danceland (which is a very cool place!). Lana had this cool idea for me to add eucalyptus garlands to swag along the top of it, along with hanging strands as well. It looked really cool! 

The entire interior of Danceland is wood, so it could get pretty dark in there. The choice of light pink linens was a great way to add some femininity to the space. Gold mercury glass votives flanked a low white floral arrangement in a stone urn, and it all came together really nicely!

Celia and Cam's Intimate, Warm Fall Wedding

I LOVE designing for intimate weddings. There's something so very special about being able to really narrow down your guest list to just the people that you love the most and who you love the most. While I couldn't do it, I certainly envy those who can! Celia and Cam are one of those couples, and their intimate, warm fall wedding was a dream.

Celia is just the most adorable. She's this tiny little package of beauty and also happens to have this adorable Australian accent that you cannot get enough of. I only got to meet her in person on the day of her wedding to Cam, so I loved seeing these incredible photos from Mel at Sugar & Soul!

I LOVED CELIA'S FLOWERS. This palette was full of life and was the perfect way to end my busy season. Those delicate peach dahlias finished the bouquet in the very best way. Bridal Bouquet Ingredients: dahlias, mums, scabiosa, garden roses, eryngium, spray roses, blushing bride protea, and several types of eucalyptus.

Leo Mol, part of Assiniboine Park, is one of the most beautiful areas in the city for a wedding ceremony. Given that they were having a fall wedding, though, we had no idea if there were still going to be any leaves on the trees to bring colour. We lucked out with literally the most gorgeous fall day! But, I still wanted to add some colour and romance to the ceremony space so I created this petal altar for them, which was on the platform where they said their vows. It was simple but made a statement.

This was my first time working at Kitchen Sync, which is an incredible space for smaller events. I would LOVE to do a 50 person wedding here once a month :) The stone walls are just gorgeous! 

We started off with this gorgeous escort card display. I can't tell you how much I LOVE escort cards - I'm not sure why. I think it has something to do with the luxurious feeling they create! I chose a stone vessel for this greenery arrangement and offset it with more of those gorgeous dahlias. Simple touches of feather eucalyptus lined the table!

Celia and Cam chose to do 2 different centrepiece styles, which was suggested by their wedding planner, Amanda Douglas (I love working with wedding planners!). This worked really well, as they did a combination of round and rectangular tables. On the rectangular tables, I laid out loose greenery, sort of like a viney garland, and tucked in individual blooms and candles. On the round tables, a bronze urn with low floral arrangements featuring decorative artichokes!

And, to finish it all off, the sweets! Since they didn't have a full cake, we didn't need to do much in the way of cake flowers, but I really loved adding the greenery and floral accents to the table and around the base of the cupcake stand.

Ashley and Bobby's Elegant Garden Wedding at the Fort Garry Hotel

Talk about a dream wedding. No, seriously. Ashley and Bobby's elegant garden wedding at the Fort Garry Hotel is one that I'd be happy to re-do every single weekend of the year. Ashley requested a refined design with classic style, and for roses to take centre stage. You know, there was a time in my life when I thought I didn't like roses. What on earth was I thinking?

PS Sorry in advance for a looooong post. The photos from Brittany Mahood are just WAY too good.

Provencher Room Fort Garry Hotel - Provencher Room Wedding

The Provencher Room is my favourite formal ballroom setting in the city, because it has this incredible sense of elegance with a neutral palette. Some of the other ballrooms have a more distinct colour palette (other ballrooms at the Fort Garry feature navy or emerald drapery, for example), while the Provencher Room is more of a timeless setting, in my opinion

Danica and Braden's Summer Wedding at Ashgrove Acres

Danica and Braden's summer wedding my first time being out at Ashgrove Acres (which is just outside of Niverville) and it was such a gorgeous day! The weather was perfect, the flowers were gorgeous, and the bride? Woah nelly. Talk about a knock-out.

Danica's bouquet gave me SUCH serious shivers. I couldn't handle my excitement when I was putting it together! It had just a few different varieties in different shades, and was just perfect.
Bridal bouquet ingredients: standard roses and garden roses, sweet pea, ranunculus, Queen Anne's Lace, laurel leaves, silver willow foliage, Italian ruscus, foraged smokebush, and foraged olive.

I don't know where they took these photos, but could it be a more perfect location? Those tall purplish blooms are actually weeds, but man, they create such a dreamy atmosphere. The pale dove grey bridesmaids' dresses were a gorgeous compliment to the soft palette.

The venue at Ashgrove Acres is really quite beautiful. The sheer draping along the ceilings creates a really soft, delicate effect and this particular colour palette works really well there. When it came to the centrepieces, Danica loved the idea of long, trailing arrangements without the hindrance of a container. I designed these arrangements to sit low along the table, in this romantic palette using a few varieties of roses, locally grown lisianthus, and locally grown Queen Anne's Lace. Personally, I don't think it could have been prettier!
