I know, I know, you’re all thinking “Summer Wedding”?? Yes, it is autumn but I just received some pictures from a wedding this past July that I had to share! It was a four hour drive from Victoria up-island  to Strathcona Lodge, the wedding location, and I was blown away with the scenery. To be married beside a lake, surrounded by forest, with mountains in the distance is absolutely dreamy. Not to mention arriving to the ceremony in a dug out canoe is pretty romantic for a west coast wedding!

Michael the bride didn’t want anything tight and formal, no roses and nothing too big. The color palette was green and ivory/white. To keep things from being too fussy I used dahlias, lisianthus, astillbe, stocks and scabiosa throughout the wedding. Her bouquet was a mass of cream astillbe, lisianthus buds and one large focal dahlia.


It’s always great when the ceremony flowers can be moved and also used in the reception. These designs did double duty.

This picture of the bride and groom is one of my favorites! That dress just looks soooo gorgeous sitting in the grass and the red kilt I must say is perfect. I would like to give credit to Brawns Photography for such an amazing job of the photos.To see more of Michael and Jesse’s wedding go to http://brawns.ca/blog/2010/09/05/jesse-and-michael-married
