There’s not much time for blogging during the busy wedding season, but I’ll take a moment to share some beautiful spring/summer bouquets!!
This April wedding was one of the first weddings of the 2009 season and what a great way to begin! Leeann and Kyle wanted something organic and earthy but also fun, fresh and unique! We combined a palette of fresh greens, whites and blacks to create just that!
The bouquets were composed of ornamental grasses, green berries, ivory hydrangea, green spider mums and (mini green hydrangea and ivory roses in the bride’s bouquet only).
For the ring bearer we created a moss pillow. The flowergirl carried a pomander made out of green Kermit mums!
A few quick “driveway shots” before we’re off on delivery!

The black, white and green colour palette was carried through into the reception with alternating black and white damask linens paired with solid black linens. On the tables we alternated very simple tall leafy arrangements with low white and green arrangements in grass. For a bit of height and to add that earthy element, willow is incorporated into all the arrangements.
In lieu of favours, Leann and Kyle made a donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Society. They then offered their guests a table of pink M&M’s to snack on! A great splash of colour for a great cause!
And check out the great cake! I visited Melrose Bakery a few times to make a template in order to be able to surround the cake with grass. I love how it turned out!
Congratulations to Megan and Darren who were married at the beautiful Hunt Club last fall. When asking for Megan’s address early on in our meetings together, I found out we had a bit of a connection. She lives on the same street as my fiance’s parents (a few houses down). And not only that, the house my fiance’s parents are in was sold to them years ago by her aunt and uncle. Small world!
The bride carried a vivid red bouquet of roses, callas and ranunculus with bear grass woven in. The groom wore a red calla to match.
Since the bridesmaids wore beautiful red dresses, they carried white bouquets of hydrangea, roses, freesia and callas.
I love photos that capture just how well the colour scheme all came together. (All that planning really does pay off!) Just look at the perfectly coordinated reds, blacks and whites!
Even though the Hunt Club is a bit more traditional, we decided to do modern and fun flowers! The vibrant red gerberas and roses really stood out among the fresh green grass! On each guest napkin we placed a single Kermit bloom.
