A Pink Rose Wedding at Cecil green....

Last weekend we had a part in decorating Cecil green Park House for the wedding of Darren & Francesca...A sea of 1200 stems of Sweet Avalanche Roses locally grown in our own Fraser Valley, along with another thousand combined stems of locally grown white Avalanche Roses, celery green Annabelle Hydrangea, white Hydrangea,and pink Winter Berry plus (imported from northern California) heavenly scented Stephanotis blossoms.
We worked with Maurizio & David of Debut Event Designs to transform the rooms into a romantic setting based on the traditional & romantic floral paintings of traditional Cuban cigar boxes God is in the details....
Cake by Indulgence Desserts...Decor by Debut Events, Flowers by Hilary Miles, and photography by the lovely Tristan Casey.
And a reminder, if you are planning a wedding always check out Style me Pretty, my absolute favourite wedding resource guide!!!

A Persian Wedding...

Okay, so I am browsing The Yaletown Wedding Gallery Blog checking to see if there are any recent photos of weddings I have worked on....The one I was looking for isn't posted yet, but as I scrolled back I came across some beautiful photos of a wedding from June 2008...
Fereshteh & Kouros are from from San Francisco (my second favourite city)
Here, Fereshteh adorns her groom with a cluster of Ivory Dendrobium Orchids
Timeless white Tulip Bouquet...and Persian sweets.

Apricot Dahlias...Delicious!

Well, summer is drawing to a close....and sadly that means the inevitable end of Dahlia season in Vancouver. We should have availability for the next few weeks, but with less choice in colours & varieties. The variety pictured above is called an "Apricot Pom Pom" and are just the most precious little flowers. They are about 6cm across & comprised of many perfect little spoon shaped petals. With a vase life of 4-7 days, and an average price of $1.00 each they are a great way to brighten up the house as the clouds roll in!
