This past summer I finally had the “dream clients” that everyone wishes for. What makes dream clients you ask? People who are open to ideas, appreciate the art of flowers and design, are trusting, genuine, and are thankful. 
This wedding was a dream come true for me in many ways. One being, with my background in interior design, my favourite environment for flowers is the home. And I was very excited to have clients who wanted flowers to play a major role in their home for their daughter’s wedding.

We decided to clear the dining room and living room shelves of all books etc. and flood them with various flowers and a few photos of the bride and groom. We kept to a crisp white color scheme, and mostly clear glass vessels throughout. The bride’s parents had the black and white print hanging on the wall of St. Paul’s Cathedral made just for the wedding. Such a cool touch.

The couple was married under an old hydrangea vine climbing up an oak tree. The vine wasn’t actually in bloom at the time of the wedding, so I covered it with white hydrangea and dahlias in water picks and it turned out to be a beautiful natural arbour.

The bride’s lovely dress was from White Peony a local shop here in Victoria. The bride let the bridesmaids choose there own dress colors. Either grey, soft pink or soft yellow.
After the ceremony while the couple was getting photographed the guests had the opportunity to hop on a local “tourist” bus and explore a couple spots in Victoria. I loved this idea! What a treat for the out of town guests.

The reception dinner and dancing took place in the back yard under a white tent softened with draping by En Vied Events

 Look at these lovely desserts by Delish Catering who catered the whole evening. I am so in love with this gorgeous wedding cake!! 
I am a big fan of floating flowers. We floated dahlias in various pots outside the the entry of the home and also in the back yard pond. I was super excited to have the opportunity to make a floating wreath and also use floating tea light holders!

According to the bride and groom the day went off without a hitch, which I’m always happy to hear. All the best to L&G and your new adventures in New York City! And thanks to everyone who helped out on this wedding, you know who you are.
