Here’s what we’ve been up to!
This sunny tented engagement party was full of sweet details. We had the pleasure of planning and designing this event and were so happy to bring the couple’s vision to life. From the gorgeous blooms to the lavender face mist that kept guests refreshed, no detail was missed. The venue grounds acted as a perfect canvas for the tented affair, while Alicia Thurston Photography captured the day beautifully.
Long banquet tables with soft blush linens made our florals pop, while soft blue plates and gold cutlery from Plate Occasions were the perfect compliment. The mix of full floral garlands and petit arrangements on the tables perfectly filled the tent while still allowing a sense of airiness.
Our beautiful cherry blossom trees were the perfect house for the delicate rose bud favors, which were a hit amongst guests, as was the beautiful sweets table created by Sweet Regards. The evening was magical and guests could not stay off the custom floor by Event Grafitti as they danced the night away.
Vanguard is a word creatives in our industry are always striving to embody, and when Wedluxe came to us with this theme for a styled shoot we knew we had to push outside the box. Our Art of Amadeus shoot is a visual symphonic ode to the musical genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the opulent beauty of his beloved city, Vienna.
Antique gold décor and soft pastel blooms set the tone for this trendsetting shoot. Our lush floral table runner acted as a bed for a stunning crystal chandelier, while beautiful arrangements and candelabras at varying heights framed the scene. Pastel hued blooms of roses, ranunculus and sweet pea added a soft romantic feel to the table while the custom backdrop designed by So Pretty In Print added the final touch to the beautiful space at Hart House.
Venetian and musical influences were sculpted into the tiniest of details, from the grand backdrop to the dainty sweets and cakes created by Nadia & Co. Vanguard was still the true influence behind every move we made, through hanging cakes and the romantic boudoir scene with beautiful floral soaps created by Bare Naked Soap Co. Our creative limits were pushed, allowing us to design something beyond words.
We could not have put this shoot together without the help of all the amazing creatives involved.

This purple and blue hued shoot, inspired by The Paintings of Renoir was full of beautiful blooms and unique details. From the engraved wooden menus by So Pretty In Print, to the ornate cakes by Fine Cakes by Zehra, every detail offered brides to be incredible inspiration.
Hy’s Steakhouse offered the perfect venue with its beautiful French inspired décor and elegant fireplace, which we enhanced with beautiful gold floral frames and luxe arrangements of hydrangeas, garden roses and orchids. We strived to capture the movement of light and shadow that the impressionist was most celebrated for through the use of colour and line in our florals.

All this snow has us reminiscing of this bright coral shoot we shot with Photographers Name. Bride to be’s with a bold side will love these sunny candy coloured blooms. Soft linens and white accents complimented the statement blooms while crystal accents added a dreamy feel to intimate table setting at The Doctor’s House. The perfect choice for the bride who is not afraid of colour!

Many of our Bride’s have come to us asking how they can preserve their bouquet or other personal touches from their weddings. While drying your flowers does elongate their life span, the originally beauty of the fresh product is lost in the process. An option we love for creating an everlasting bouquet is using silk flowers.
Many of you may cringe when you picture silk flowers, the image of the dusty arrangement at your Grandmothers house is not the silk blooms we are talking about though! Silk florals have come leaps and bounds in the last few years, looking so realistic you won’t believe you can touch them, and coming in every variety you could imagine from garden roses to ranunculus.
We are so happy to announce that we have opened an Etsy shop catering to the bride that dreams of a bridal bouquet she can keep forever. We offer beautiful designs made of the highest quality silk blooms, bouquets, flower crowns, corsages and even boutonnieres!
