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!!
I apologize for the wait! Wedding season has officially begun and the blog took the back seat for a little while. I’m excited to share some of the amazing weddings that we’ve already completely this season, but want to try and wrap up 2009 weddings first!
Amy and Daryl were married at a beautiful church in St. Thomas and then had their reception at the Best Western Lamplighter in London. The fresh colour palette of whites and greens is always one of my favourites as it is timeless and classic yet very fresh at the same time. The bouquets really looked great against the black bridesmaids’ dresses!
The bouquets consist of hydrangea, peonies, hypercium berries, roses and cymbidium orchids.
Since the groom is a Firefighter a fire engine was ‘borrowed’for a few shots. I just LOVE the vibrant red! What a great backdrop!
The centerpieces were a combination of submerged green orchids with a floating candle low hydrangea arrangements.

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!
Laura and Adam were married at his parent’s home just outside London. It is a spectacular property with sprawling lawns- perfect for an outdoor tent wedding! It was an incredibly hot July day (I must admit I was very tempted by their glistening blue pool), but the couple had planned for the heat and had two gigantic fans helping to keep the tent cool. From the looks of the photos, the heat didn’t bother anyone in the least! Congratulations Laura and Adam, I wish you all the best!
Laura’s bouquet was composed of dahlias, roses, orchids and celosia.
The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets except we also added in mini orange gerberas and green berries. Check out their neat dresses! (You may not be able to notice this detail in the photos, but the two-toned pink roses in the bouquets are the same two pinks found in the dresses!)
The men wore pink callas to compliment their ties.
The ceremony was held outdoors framed by an archway of gerberas and two large arrangements.
Inside the tent, we continued the bright and fun theme with square centerpieces of hydrangea, gerberas, roses and hypericum berries.
Always re-use! The ceremony arrangements served double duty when they became the backdrop. They held up really well too considering it was over 30 degrees!
I just love my job and that I get to play a part in such amazing events. Just look at the joy on this adorable bride’s face! Another fantastic and fun wedding!
