Wedding: Karen & David – Bellamere Winery & Event Centre

Another fabulous wedding at Bellamere!  Fall weddings are some of my favourite.  On this warm October day, you could almost feel the fruit ripening and the colours depending.  For Karen and David’s afternoon wedding, we combined rich berry tones to create bouquets perfectly suited for a winery wedding!  The always amazing HRM Photography captured this picture perfect day.

As each wedding by Designs in Bloom is custom designed, it can often be hard to envision what the end combination of flowers will be. For Karen, we wanted lush berry shades that drew inspiration from the rich grapes and wines found at a vineyard.  Often I will create an outline for my clients that can help them to picture the overall design and medley of colours.

Here is the “storyboard” or outline of flowers picked to achieve the “vineyard rich look” this bride wanted. We incorporated deep tones of burgundy, merlot and plum along with rich pinks.

And here is the outcome!

Bride with her Bouquet

We couldn’t let go of the fresh summer greens yet! – For the two bridesmaid bouquets we incorporated a bit of summery green by bringing in the green berries and cymbidium orchids.

Bouquets

I always love when personal details can be incorporated into the bouquets. Here we used lace from Karen’s mom’s wedding dress. Karen also purchased crystal monogrammed letters that were attached to all the bouquets. Here is Karen’s:

The rings were carried down the aisle in a wooden box that had special meaning to the couple. We filled with moss and pinned the rings in!

Combination centerpieces have become very popular. Why pick one centerpiece when you can have two? For this wedding we had an earthy wooden box of moss, floating candles and orchids on half the tables and a full floral centerpiece arrangement on the other half.

Vintage family wedding photos were hung in the Manzanita tree along with crystals and orchid bloom.

Another amazingly delicious cupcake display by Razzle Dazzle.  All that was needed were a few orchids to top it off.

Cupcakes and Candy Bouquet

If you love candy, you’ll love these custom made candy bouquets. (I think I’ve admitted in a previous post to snacking just a wee bit when making them!) Looks like the guests at this wedding love candy as much as I do!

Wedding: Rema and Zhowan – Marconi Club

Early August, Rema and Zhowan had their Friday ceremony at Windermere Manor and the next day they held their reception at Marconi Club.  Friday was a beautiful and hot August day, perfect for an outdoor ceremony.  Rema had thought in advance to provide all her guests with fans on their chairs in case it became a bit too hot for some.  As I write this on a cold January day, I’d sure like some of that heat now!

The bride’s bouquet was made up of phaleanopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, roses, and callas.

Bride's Bouquet

We dressed up the ribbon wrap by attaching Rema’s antique brooch.  To compliment the bride’s bouquet, the groom wore a mini cymbid with a mini calla.

Bouquet Ribbon & Groom's Boutonniere

Orange was incorporated in the bridesmaids’ bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres. The Groomsmen wore orange callas while the bridesmaids carried bouquets consisting of roses, orchids, callas and berries.
