Relationships with our brides make working on their wedding flowers that much more special and this was no exception with our bride Vanessa. A former co-worker of mine (before I got into the flower business full swing) Vanessa always talked about using my services for her wedding day when the time came. Well as soon as her long time boyfriend Marco popped the question she contacted me to book and we couldn’t have been happier!
Loving all things “pretty, girlie and typically wedding” Vanessa felt the flowers were an integral part of her day. Opting for softness, romance with a touch of vintage flair together we designed a scheme of ivory, soft pinks and grey with a multitude of spring flowers.
Vanessa’s bridal bouquet was an abundance of soft spring flowers in pastel shades of pink and ivory. Fragrant roses & spray roses combined with fluttery lisianthus and ranunculus made up this beautiful bouquet accented with lots of dusty miller. The bouquet was wrapped in grey satin ribbon with a lace overlay and crystal border for it’s finishing touch.
The bridesmaids carried a pretty combination of roses, spray roses and lisianthus blooms accented with more dusty miller and touches of baby’s breath for added softness. We loved how they complimented the dusty blue colour of the dresses and even the teal of the Maid of Honour. Such a pretty and different colour palette!
The Groom’s boutonniere matched the bridal bouquet with soft ranunculus blooms accented with dusty miller. The various family members wore boutonnieres or corsages of white mini cymbidium orchids & wax flower.
For the church ceremony Vanessa requested altar pieces of baby’s breath since the church itself needed little decoration. Perched atop clear vases the pieces looked like soft clouds.
The reception took place at Hazelton Manor in Vaughan which is a beautiful and well run venue. Such a pleasure to work with them! Vanessa chose a mix of high and low centerpieces to give a little variation in the room. White hydrangea & pink roses were mixed with wax flower, seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller while curly willow branches added even more height to the tops. Set atop a clear vase for the tall centerpieces or on the table for the low, these pieces added just a touch of colour and lots of texture to this pretty reception room.
Finally the head table, set as a King’s Table, was filled with small arrangements of hydrangea, roses, lisianthus & baby’s breath all along it’s length. We then filled in the spaces with lots and lots of candles to create a romantic glow.
We were so happy to be a part of this wonderful couple’s special day and even more happy to witness the strong love between them. To Vanessa and Marco we wish you a long a happy marriage filled with lots of laughs and love.
