Sunflowers are, simply put, a happy flower. So when our bride Shirley requested them as her main design element for her early fall wedding we knew they’d take over. Complemented with regal, rich purple these sunny blooms took center stage in the design for a lovely wedding at Archeo in the historic Toronto Distillery District.

Bride Shirley carried a bouquet of sunflowers, dark purple asters, lisianthus, solidago and greenery. The girls popped in flowing royal purple dresses with simple bouquets of sunflowers and greenery. The men looked chic in classic black suits, bow ties and playful boutonnieres of yellow craspedia.

The ceremony took place on Acheo’s outdoor patio on a lovely early fall day. Large feature arrangements of hydrangea, purple stock, greenery and more sunflowers flanked the altar space atop rustic wine barrels. Small arrangements of the same flowers hung from iron shepherds hooks down the aisle.

But the true focal point  of the room was the suspended arrangement over the head table showcasing the feature flower. Amidst lush greenery, bright sunflowers and purple asters injected the space with rich colour while votive candles, hung from purple ribbons, floated above the tabletop.

As a floral designer, nothing excites us more than a unique colour palette. So when bride Sarah requested something different for her wedding at the gorgeous Berkeley Church we were happy to oblige. So with a vintage feel in mind we set out to design a unique palette with pops of bold coral, soft peach and blush accented with purple, captured flawlessly by ME Creative.

Sarah’s bridesmaids brought colour to the table with mismatched gowns in blush, purple, fuchsia and eggplant. Their bouquets of coral and peach roses, blush ranunculus and purple waxflower tied the colourful palette together.

The head table displayed the bouquets in glass cylinder vases along with more low arrangements and glass chalices with floating candles while strings of edison bulbs glowed from above.

When we were introduced to bride Kara through a past client her eagerness to collaborate on the design was refreshing. She was excited to discuss ways to incorporate her vision of lush white flowers mixed with Scottish elements for her relaxed and non-traditional wedding at Bronte Harbour in Oakville.

Since her husband to be was wearing his family tartan kilt Kara decided to dress her wedding party in dark colours and keep all the flowers light and airy. For her bridal bouquet we combined magnificent white ranunculus blooms with cream garden roses, white lisianthus and fluttery queen anne’s lace. Bridesmaids carried smaller versions and even the adorable flower girl got a matching bouquet.

Theme weddings can be tricky, but a unique theme can result in a fabulous event with a look that has never been seen before. So when  Denise from WeDDings Jubliee sent us a couple looking for a Great Canadian wedding we were intrigued. Then we got excited because the couple wanted a colour scheme based on the Hudson’s Bay iconic striped blanket. What a GREAT idea! Who doesn’t love stripes, really. And this fun wedding was even featured in WeddingBells Magazine both in the print magazine and online here! Fabulous photos by Bloom Photography so be sure to check out the feature too!

Shaun and Daniel are all about Canada and sought a simple but rustic look for their same sex wedding. The little gem of a venue, Hotel Ocho, in downtown Toronto features an open work ceiling, brick walls and reclaimed wood floors and was the perfect setting for these intimate nuptials. So we set to work to design simple but natural inspired floral elements while keeping the stripes in mind.

Both Groom’s wore navy blue suits with a Hudson’s Bay striped tie and socks. The white calla lily boutonnieres set off perfectly and were detailed with rustic twine.

For the on site ceremony on the venue’s lower level we crafted two large arrangements of hydrangea, white tulips, hanging amaranthus and various greenery. They perched atop birch planters set in the street level windows for a bit of privacy.

Rustic Canadiana Altar Flowers

On the upper level the reception space was set with tulips centerpieces on each table. A pair of either red, yellow or white tulip arrangements with ribbon wrap in the Hudson colours alternated each table and added a pop of colour to the space.

Great detail and thought was put into this wedding as each table was set with a Hudson’s Bay striped cracker purchased from the store. Attached to each cracker was a tag with each guests name as a place card, and on the back was a hand written note from one of the groom’s with a personal anecdote. Such a thoughtful detail!

Hudson's Bay Stripe Favour

The scrumptious looking cake table featured a simple two tiered cake with butter cream frosting and burlap and ribbon wrap detailing by Rainy’s Cookie Cafe. Additionally personal sized pies, with an adorable heart cutout were displayed tiered wooded racks. Of course we added a little floral and greenery flourish to the display to make it pop.

We loved all the thought and detail that went into this wedding and it was such a joy to see two people so obviously in love share that with their family and friends. Best of luck to Shaun and Daniel on your lives together!

It’s always special when friends get married and as a vendor it makes us want to do everything in our power to make their day perfect. Such was the case for my friends Kat & Ken’s beautiful late summer wedding at Archeo in Toronto’s Distillery District. With an emphasis on friends and family, this intimate affair full of homemade touches sought to evoke a relaxed rustic feel and lots of fun! Beautifully captured by Danijela Weddings this wedding is sure to make you smile!

Bride Kat had trouble deciding on a colour scheme initially as she liked many options and couldn’t narrow it down. She did know that she wanted to stay away from anything typical. So I designed the florals with a cheery palette of yellow, peach, wine and ivory with lots of textural greenery to give everything a more natural and organic look. I combined yellow and peach roses, white lisianthus, craspedia, yellow ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus and new zealand pittsporum greens for a lovely wild and organic bouquet. The finishing touch was a stunning cranberry striped ribbon treatment to tie in the colour of the bridesmaids dresses.

Yellow, Peach and Berry Bridal Bouquet

With her two sisters acting as bridesmaids their bouquets were smaller versions of Kat’s with a mix of peach and yellow roses, white lisianthus, seeded eucalyptus and new zealand pittsporum greens.

We also crafted a floral crown for Kat to wear (the thing she was most excited about!) of peach and yellow spray roses, white wax flower and delicate stephanotis blooms. The result tied in with her low hairstyle perfectly and embodied Kat’s carefree and cheerful personality.

Groom Ken and his brothers, who love to horse around, wore mismatched patterned shirts and suspenders for a fun and relaxed vibe. Small boutonnieres of yellow spray roses and greenery kept the look simple and easy.

Both the ceremony and reception took place at Archeo restaurant in the distillery district in downtown Toronto. The outdoor ceremony featured a pair of large gold trees adorned with floral and hanging foliage. These trees were later moved inside to the receiving tables as additional decor.

The reception space featured gallery style tables with multiple floral arrangements down the length. White wooden vases brushed with gold were filled with roses, spray roses, lisianthus, agonis, seeded eucalyptus and new zealand pittsporum greens. These sat atop table runners made by the bride from black and white photographs of the groom and her as children and though their courtship. A fun, personal touch that everyone (even the archeo staff) loved and commented on! Mercury votives and burlap table numbers (also made by the crafty bride) finished off the look.

I loved how everything turned out for this wedding, and since I was lucky enough to be a guest as well, it was one of the most genuine and enjoyable weddings I have had the pleasure of attending. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming and the esthetic was creative, unique and entirely Kat & Ken. I wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness together and can’t wait to see what life has in store for them!

We love an easy going bride as much as the next and Evelyn was the perfect example of someone who knows what she likes but is open to the opinion of a professional. So for her summer wedding at the Rosewater Room in downtown Toronto she envisioned simple florals with lots of soft pink roses and elegant gold accents. Today we share the lovely details of the wedding beautifully captured by the fabulous team at Mango Studios.

Evelyn decided she wanted to use predominantly roses in her design scheme, but wanted to add a few different blooms for texture and interest so we fashioned her bridal bouquet using a gorgeous combination of garden roses, roses, ranunculus, freesia, waxflower in shades of pink and ivory and accented with gold tinted greenery. Her bridesmaids carried simplier bouquets of roses, spray roses and freesia blooms that paired beautifully with their soft and playful pink dresses. For the groom a ranunculus bloom was paired with freesia and waxflower as a compliment to her bouquet.

The Rosewater Room was the setting for both the ceremony and reception. A simple aisle lined with pink rose petals and small pink and gold flowers hanging from iron shepherd’s hook lead the way to the large wall of windows in front of which the bride and groom would say their “I do’s”.  A pair of large white urns were filled with tall curly willow branches and stuffed with assorted greenery and fluffy white hydrangea blooms. A few hydrangea were wired to the branches and appeared to be floating to create a backdrop that was simple yet a touch whimsical.

Designing a wedding for another wedding professional can sometimes be intimidating, but when we were contacted by Alyssa of Alyssa Anne Events, we knew working hand in hand with her would be easy. As a wedding planner Alyssa had a very specific idea of what she wanted her day to look like, but also knew that she was hiring a fellow professional for a reason and placed her trust in us to execute her vision. So together we created a classic white wedding design befitting a fairytale, gorgeously captured by Ikonica.

Alyssa was definitely a classically oriented bride and there is nothing more classic than a bouquet of cascading white blooms. We fashioned her bouquet with roses, spray roses and dendrobium orchids accented with hints of greenery for a touch of contrast against her white gown. Greg’s boutonniere incorporated green thistles with a white rose as a nod to his Scottish heritage.

The ceremony was held at the breathtaking Merciful Redeemer Parish in Mississauga with it’s light and airy feel and grand open scheme. The aisle was lined with globes of full white hydrangea and roses on glass pedestal vases creating a regal entrance for the bride. Soft summer light filtered through the windows and the mounds of white flowers created a ethereal ambiance for the ceremony full of love and joy.

Today we share a pretty wedding that embodied everything soft and feminine when it came to flowers. Bride Gloria wanted a look that was beautiful yet effortless surrounding a spring palette of blush pinks, whites and soft green. These gorgeous photos by Catherine Farquharson captured both the church ceremony and following ceremony at Malaparte at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in downtown Toronto.

Gloria’s bridal bouquet combined full white and blush roses, spray roses, white lisianthus and fluffy white stock flower accented with seeded eucalyptus greens. Soft and entirely feminine the bouquet complemented her fitted lace gown beautifully.

The traditional church ceremony was decorated with baby’s breath entirely on it’s own so a soft and ethereal design. Cluster’s of baby’s breath were tied to the pews with blush pink satin ribbon and a pair of large baby’s breath globes flanked the altar table.

When we first met with bride Lauren, she knew she wanted to incorporate a rich jewel toned purple into her wedding colour scheme for her late fall nuptials. She fell in love with purple mokara orchids when we showed them to her and the design took flight from there. Mixed with crisp white and silver accents the royal purple flowers added a little pop to her overall floral scheme.

The bridal bouquet combined crisp white commercial mums, purple edged lisianthus, picasso calla lilies, white roses and purple mokara orchids. The bouquet was finished off with a silver satin ribbon wrap with rhinestone trim.

Purple and White Bridal BouquetThe bridesmaids carried smaller, simpler versions of the bridal bouquet consisting of white roses, purple edged lisianthus, picasso calla lilies and mokara orchids. They contrasted beautifully with their rich purple floor length gowns.

Perched atop each napkin was a handmade origami crane, a nod to the bride’s Japanese heritage. The head table and mantlepieces were adorned with more submerged orchid arrangements with floating candles but included a lace wrap detail.

Another fabulous collaboration with our friend Arthur K at Fusion Events introduced us to beautiful Bride Sarah for a lovely vintage inspired wedding at the historic Burroughes Building in downtown Toronto. With a soft and highly romantic palette of ivory, cream, blush, gold and silver we crafted the florals around Sarah’s love of the classic rose. We are so thankful to Scarlet from Scarlet O’Neill Photography for the gorgeous images.

Sarah’s bridal bouquet was a ruffly confection of blush and cream roses and spray roses tied with ivory satin ribbon and accented with her grandmother’s brooch which also acted as her “something blue.”

Bridesmaids carried smaller rose and spray rose bouquets in shades of ivory and cream to accent their mismatched dresses, also in a neutral palette. The affect was lovely, soft and entirely pretty!

Both the ceremony and reception took place inside the historic Burroughes Building in downtown Toronto. The ceremony space was accented with a pair of large glass vases filled with gold branches. Strings of crystals and pearls were draped over the branches and hanging votive candles twinkled softly.  It was a beautiful alternative to the usual floral pieces and fit the vintage theme perfectly.

In the adjoining room gallery tables were set with blush linens and gorgeous lace overlays. Mercury bud vases in gold, rose and silver filled with roses were set along the table length with lots of romantic candlelight. Vintage looking frames with photographs of family weddings portraits added conversation pieces to the table setting and a personal touch.

The final request from the bride, who spent a few years in Paris, France was to incorporate a “flower market” for guests to take home long stemmed roses. A rustic wooden table was covered with silver tins filled with roses, complete with chalkboard signs of the rose variety names and a custom gold framed sign handmade by a friend of the family.
