Wedding: Dora & Travis – St. Mary’s Church & FireRock Golf Club

These two were great clients to work with! Dora booked without having met me as she was living in Manitoba where her and her ‘husband to be’ were both working as RCMP officers. Even though she was planning from afar, this wedding was one of the smoothest and easiest to plan of the entire season. And I have to say,  I just loved how it came together (so did the happy couple and their guests!)

When Dora first contacted me she wanted a “white wedding” with a bit of red. Travis planned on wearing his red serge RCMP uniform instead of a traditional suit, which left Dora struggling to balance the red of his uniform. A few months later, after seeing a wedding on my website, Dora changed her colour palette to pink and red.  I’ve said it before but don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Pink and red can be best friends! Shades of pink can be a nice balance to strong reds and add a dimension in colour.

Dora chose her original favourite- a white rose bouquet. We dressed it up with a bit of sparkle.  For the rest of the flowers we used the vibrant pink and red colour palette.

Quick Pics: Best of Spring 2010

Since it will probably be a while before we get professional photos and have time to put together full posts for some of our Spring weddings, I thought I would share a few of the photos we took along the way, as a sort of “sneak peek”.

Wedding: Cassandra & Justin – FireRock Golf Club

Cassandra and Justin were married on a beautiful early-October Saturday. Their reception took place at the FireRock Golf Club, one of my favourite venues – especially if you’re looking for a modern feel.

It was a privilege to work with Cassandra, who is a very sweet but hardworking perfectionist.  This was one of those weddings that took a while to plan. Over months of planning, we ended up with completely different arrangements, flowers and colours from where we started. What we ended up with perfectly complemented this couple’s style as well as FireRock!

The bouquets consisted of roses, mokara and cymbidium orchids, callas and Photinia foliage.

Looks like their little pooch was enjoying the day too! (Check out the pearls!)

The centerpieces were a combination of tall and low. The tall were a simple, yet stunning, monochromatic centerpiece of red mokara, with just a hint of black feathers around the base!

An orchid on each napkin and a mass of petals (orchid and rose petals) completed the head table.

I’ve done a few of these Candy bouquets and love them every time! They are a great addition to a candy buffet.  Each time it’s fun to shop for candy that works with specific floral “colour schemes”. (But it is hard not to snack when creating them! YUM!)
