Wedding: Michelle & Justin – The Old Court House

Look out, there are new rules in town!  Well, not so new really.  Whoever said that you can’t mix pink and red, or brown and black?  This wedding shows just how awesome pinks and reds can look together! For this September wedding at The Old Court House, we paired gorgeous pink and red flowers with rich chocolate browns, and light mocha browns to create a dramatic effect!

The bridesmaids’ bouquets consisted of hot pink roses, vibrant red roses and pink cymbidium orchids.

To soften things up a bit for the bride, soft pink roses were incorporated in her bouquet.

Inside The Old Court House, the centerpieces were a combination of short and tall. See if you can spot the red dahlias, they’re locally grown in all sorts of glorious colours and my favourite for late summer!

Wedding: Jennifer & Pete

Jennifer’s parent’s farm outside London was an idyllic location for this July wedding! Jen’s bouquets were vintage inspired, but in the outdoor tent we went a bit more whimsical and introduced vibrant orange into the neutral colour palette!  This wedding proves that an unexpected mix of colours and flowers can work out fabulously!

Jen’s bridal bouquet consisted of all pink peonies! The bride had her heart set on peonies even though it was a bit late in the season for them. We had our back-up flowers planned, but at the last minute I was able to inform Jen “We got our peonies!” I think we got the very last peonies available anywhere!

The fluffy peony bouquets really worked well with the wedding’s vintage feel and Jen’s gorgeous dress!

If the weather cooperates, nothing is more perfect than an outdoor ceremony. Check out the AMAZING tree that served as the ideal backdrop for this ceremony.

The bridesmaids carried bouquets of peonies, roses and freesia. The white with a hint of green really popped against their stunning blue dresses!

Bridesmaids' Bouquets

In the open tent, the centerpieces were a triad of vases composed of a unique mix of flowers. As the groom is Australian (Jen met Pete in Australia!), we incorporated a unique mix of succulents and pods that pay homage to warmer climates and brought a little of the feel of his homeland to this Canadian farm.
