An Intimate Winter Elopement at The Symes


This was a jaw-dropping collaboration brought together by an amazing group of industry creatives. With over 15 vendors involved, it was a whirlwind of a day that captured the tale of an intimate elopement full of romance.

Our favourite vendors included the to-die-for custom made weddings bands provided by Stor by Margot. We spend a good portion of our day trying on each and every piece she had in her collection. We also loved working along side industry leader Scarlet O’Neill. Her energy did not faded from the first shot to the last, and her talent is seen in every single Shot! The Symes was an incredible venue to work at. The open space is so versatile, with so much thought and detail put into the finishings of the intimate rooms and reception spaces.

We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed being part of this collaboration!

Kaitlin & Drew's Boho Barn Wedding


Kait & Drew are a fun-loving couple that I also have the pleasure of calling good friends! As a couple, their light-hearted nature and hilarious sense of humour is something you feel right away when spending time with them. When we got together for their floral consultation, Kait knew she wanted to incorporate some amazing boho inspired pieces into the floral decor. Her ideas were inspiring and I was instantly excited to be part of their big day. Drew had one thing and one thing only in mind - He wanted a floral chandelier!


Kait’s ivory & neutral bouquet was garden inspired with local peonies and garden roses as focal florals. We added lisianthus, spray roses and fresh local lilac as complimentary florals. It all came together with a textured blend of eucalyptus and ruscus foliages. Thanks to the fresh white lilac, this bouquet smelled as good as it looked!


Kait’s maid’s carried floral hoops down the aisle, a refreshing alternative to the traditional bridesmaid bouquet. Along with the floral hoops, their multi-coloured and mix-matched skirts created a boho inspired look for this countryside barn wedding.


The ceremony decor was natural, earthy and California inspired. The copper arbour was solely decorated with eucalyptus and white delphinium florals.


As a friend of the couple, I was able to take in their ceremony as a guest. The officiant told the tale of how they met, what they love most about each other, and their accomplishments as a couple (and fur-parents). I was laughing one second, and in tears the next. It was a touching ceremony for two people with a serendipitous love story.


Kait & Drew wanted to bring the outside in for their rustic barn reception. We excentuated this all-wooden space with lush foliage floating up the pillars of the barn. The long harvest tables were lined with hand laid mixed foliage runners. The show stopper was without a doubt the garden inspired floral chandelier above the dance floor. This was not your average floral chandelier! It included local peonies, English garden roses, and whimsical flowing foliage. I would be willing to bet that it was the second most beautiful thing Drew set his eyes on that day!


Behind the head table hung five copper hoops with mixed foliage and ivory floral decor, perfectly framed by the romantic drapery hung from beam to beam. A romantic touch that always softens the look of this rustic space.


This wedding was so inspiring and fun to bring together. I know my team and I enjoyed building the floral chandelier, just as much as Kait and Drew enjoyed dancing the night away under it. If you are asking yourself “Do I need a floral chandelier at my reception?”. The answer is - YES!


K + D, Thank you so much for having us as part of your day!

Sharon & Fayyaz Tie The Knot at Historic Hart House

Hart House Wedding by Jeremie Dupont-9.jpg

If you are looking for a romantic castle setting for your fairy-tale wedding, then Hart House is the venue for you! We couldn't resist getting lost in the historical stone hallways and marble staircases during set-up that afternoon. Hart House was without a doubt a bucket list venue for us, and we were thrilled when Sharon and Fayyaz asked us to be part of their wedding day!

We knew when we met Sharon that she was smart, graceful and very kind. When she told us she was looking for a soft and feminine look, we were envisioning lots of dusty blush, creamy ivory and subtle whites. The bridal bouquet we made for Sharon was a romantic garden inspired rose bouquet that will definitely steal your heart.

Sharon & Fayyaz's wedding included two ceremonies to honour both of their Religions. They had two lush garden style urn arrangements that they were able to re-purpose and enjoy for both ceremonies. We used an ivory linen to drape over the acrylic pedestals for an elegant look in the Hart House courtyard.

The Great Hall is a breathtaking space to host your wedding guests for a post-ceremony reception and dinner. Sharon and Fayyaz opted for harvest tables with simple yet elegant foliage and linen runners with minimal floral accents.

Our favourite piece from this unforgettable wedding was hands down the garden inspired head table centrepiece. Some of the best floral pieces are the ones designed on site, in the space they are intended for. I think it is evident that we found our surrounding inspiring when we created this floral magic!

Congratulations to this lovely couple! Thank you for having us as part of your day. It is one my team and I will remember for years to come! 

Thank You to Jeremie Dupont Photography for perfectly capturing this day, and for             providing us with the above images. 

Sandi & Mike's Timeless Garden Wedding at Evergreen Brickworks

Sandi and Mike threw a June wedding to remember! Their vision of simple and elegant decor perfectly complimented their industrial reception space and the surrounding natural gardens. 


The breezy June afternoon and lush gardens at Evergreen Brickworks provided the perfect backdrop for their romantic first look photos. 


Sandi's Pronovias wedding gown was a modern and feminine silhouette with vintage lace and button down details. She was a vision of natural beauty, and this dress perfectly captured the timeless and classic feel of her wedding day. 


The bridal bouquet was garden inspired, with lush foliage and a neutral ivory palette. The focal florals included local peonies, English garden roses, and premium white roses. The focal blooms were accented with white lilac, lisianthus, queen annes lace, stock flower and local orange blossom. 


Sandi's maids wore matching dusty blue off-the-shoulder dresses. Their garden inspired bouquets were neutral and ivory posies to match Sandi’s bouquet. 


Mike looked draper in a modern version of your classic black tuxedo. His white ranunculus boutonniere was a subtle symbol of the couples dutch ancestry. 


The ceremony was held on the pavilion overlooking the pond and extensive natural gardens. The industrial copper arch was decorated with foraged greens and minimal white florals in an asymmetrical design. It was the perfect focal piece to accent the natural surroundings. 


The tablescape included delicate glass bud vases with majolica spray roses, lisianthus, delphinium and queen annes lace. A trio of pillar candles was at the centre of these long harvest style tables, with a flowing runner of Italian ruscus to bring everything together. 


With a classic palette of ivory, glass, and natural greens this wedding was the perfect combination of effortless style with subtle hints of glamour. Congratulations Sandi & Mike - we are thrilled to have been part of your day, and will remember this wedding for years to come!

Samie & Luke's Parkdale Wedding


When I first met Samie & Luke, I could tell right away that they were going to be a fun-loving couple to work with. Samie began our consultation by telling me about their new puppy Pepper and laughed as she showed me pictures and told me about her latest puppy-antics.

I loved that Luke joined us for the consultation. I find that grooms often opt out of this part of wedding planning. He asked lots of questions about different flowers, and it was refreshing to see that they were taking on their floral decor together, as a couple. Throughout the planning stages of their wedding, I was touched when I read an e-mail from Luke who reached out to me about a copper arbour he knew would make Samies wedding day complete. His efforts to make their day everything she had dreamed of was so very evident and heart warming to be part of. 


For her bouquet, Samie knew she wanted to go with neutral colours, but said she wanted to add one focal flower with a bold hue to stand out. I knew the perfect rose would be the amnesia rose. I paired the mauve blooms with some champagne coloured sahara roses, white dahlias, white majolica spray roses, white veronica, some astrantia for some whimsical texture, and hanging hellebore for a touch of romance. 

When their wedding day arrived, I delivered Samies bouquets to her and her reaction was everything I could have asked for. Nothing in this line of work is better than a bride who falls in love with her bouquet at first sight! After a congratulatory hug, I was on my way to their venue in Parkdale.

The Only One Gallery is a beautiful urban venue which is unique because it is so versatile. You truly have the ability to create your own atmosphere in this industrial and exposed brick art gallery. Samie & Luke went with the modern minimalist style of the space. I designed their copper arbour with light Italian ruscus foliage and peekaboo lisianthus flowers. I draped a light mauve fabric over the structure to add a soft feminine romance to the installation.  



Their table top decor was modern with lots of greenery. It included Italian ruscus garland runners, metallic geometric decor, golden candle votives, and bud vases with lisianthus and baby breath.

In the corner of the room against an exposed brick backdrop was their three tiered naked wedding cake designed by Tracy Gomes. Together Tracy and I added the fresh floral decor to the wedding cake. The flowers included the same amnesia, sahara and white majolica roses to match Samies bouquet. This cake was a showstopper!



All together this wedding was one of my favourites of the season. Not only were Samie & Luke a pleasure to work with, but their entire day and urban chic wedding style came together seamlessly. They brought elegance and minimalism to Parkdale, and they did it down the graffiti alley just off Brock Avenue. The photographs by Bows & Lavender are hands down the most unique and authentic wedding portraits I have ever seen, and they perfectly capture the style and love shared by this lovely couple.

A Copper and Blush Styled Shoot with Modern Accents | WedLuxe Magazine

Back in April, we planned our first ever styled shoot with the help of our friends at Cambium Farms. We so much enjoyed dreaming up different ideas for this shoot, finally settling on a copper inspired theme with lots of soft blush colours and modern accents. We couldn't believe our eyes when we read that the photos taken by the amazing Holly from Hipnotik Photography would be featured on the WEDLUXE blog this July. Not only was it fun to plan out this styled shoot, but it was a fantastic experience working together with other wedding creatives. I truly could not have pulled this off without their talent and passion.

An oasis filled with metallic copper, dusty blush, and rose gold geometric accents comes to life at the elegant Cambium Farms in Caledon, Ontario. The antique setting, muted colour palette, and lush foliage juxtaposed with the modern tablescape ultimately makes for one eye-catching design statement.
