We are in love with the elegant and romantic flowers that we did for this couple on their wedding day. We brought organic and earthy tones to fit with the most beautiful backdrops throughout the waterfronts around Victoria, BC. The bride and groom chose soft colour palettes of delicate greens, pinks, blues and peach tones with gold accents emerging organically as the dominant colours throughout. The bride, Sheilah, opted for more simplicity when it came to decor, her dress and the florals. Allowing us to have freedom to create her vision of a vintage style vibe.
With a a love for the 1920s and fashion in that era, the soft hues of the florals went perfectly with Sheilah’s fitted gown with the most beautiful details of beading and embroidery. Just as elegant and easy defines the bride, so does their bridal party who complimented the neutral tones with pale pinks and soft lavenders. We were lucky enough to work with the bride as we planned out prior to the wedding bringing to the table ideas such as the hexagonal arbor when we first met. She trust your judgment and it came out beautifully. She was thrilled to have left the design and planning to us, bring forth ideas of heather to celebrate her Scottish heritage, in which we incorporated into the design. Everything outdoors framed the space bringing her guests to the backdrop where they said ‘I Do’. The floral design from the outdoor ceremony was then brought indoors and used for the reception. What a treat to design with this bride and see the gorgeous photos bring it all together.

I came across this very informative article on Wedding Chicks this morning that explains the ins and outs of wedding budgeting. A very heady subject, especially to the first time bride and groom trying to figure out, “what should this cost?!”.
I get emails everyday asking me to ball park a wedding budget for July (insert month of choice), with very little or sometimes no more information that that. My first response is always, Yikes, I can’t! My next response is, “Can you send me a list of what you are looking for (numbers of tables, number of bridesmaids etc), and a few inspiration images that I can use as a jumping off point to start the ball rolling? As well, I will need any bloom choices that you are crushing on so that I can give you an informed budget span that you can then make choices from.”
I am certainly not trying to be evasive, I am simply trying to figure out where, when and what you like so that I can narrow down the very large list of variables to educate you of your options! You are always in the drivers seat! This is your wedding after all and you need to be comfortable with what you are spending for the look you are after! But it always helps to be well informed!!
Check out the full article here for a good read and some great insights!
Yes, we can even do small wedding orders…like this gorgeous little elopement we did for Christina and Ray on June 11th!
