Secret Garden

back by popular demand (from the 80's) is baby's breath.  The staple flower from the era of the big shoulder pads and big hair is front and center for 2013.  Chynna & Mike choose 'a secret garden' for their April wedding.  Lots of moss/clay pots and baby's breath graced the doors and tables.

pots which had been 'weathered' over the winter carried the secret garden theme from the garden to the table

2012 favourite bouquets

As the wedding season winds down we'd like to give you a look at some of our favourite bouquets from 2012. We moved away from the popular hand tied tight bouquets to an open and organic style incorporating lots of succulents and natural elements

Nathalie & Mark

What a delightful palette the bride choose for her late Nov romantic wedding.  Gone are the reds, oranges and yellows of fall and the Christmas greenery has not yet arrived.  Succulents, scabiosa pods, star of bethlehem, brunia silver, roses and seeded eucalyptus made up the bouquets.

In place of the 'typical' pedstals topped with floral arrangements for the ceremony, the bride opted for a large hanging wreath to be the backdrop for their nuptuals.  The wreath then became the backdrop for the head table once the venue was turned around for the reception.  Both the ceremony and reception took place at Inn On The Twenty in Jordan Village. The wreath was framed by the floor to ceiling/wall to wall windows which gave the guests a view of the Twenty Mile Creek.

Hanging arrangements on shepherd hooks lined the ceremony aisle which then became the table centerpieces.

Amy & Adam

Amy arrived at the Cave Spring Retreat in her father's pick up ready for her nuptials to Adam

I like to refer to Amy & Adam's wedding as herb magic. The couple centered their colour scheme around their guest favours which were potted herbs in luscious raspberry red clay pots.  The result was the red pop of colour throughout the wedding flowers.  Accentuate with brown pods and fasciated pussy willow, surround with coffee beans and the result is eyecatching designs.

Congratulations Amy & Adam
