Vancouver Art Gallery Wedding

Here is a sneak peek into Jackie & Paula's Wedding
July 24th 2010 at The Vancouver Art Gallery...The Current Exhibit... Coincidence?
This was an Italian Wedding & the couple wanted a natural garden feel for the larger arrangements...
The Bride's colours were Hot pink, Orange, Magenta, and Chartreuse.
LOVE this mix... Roses, Hydrangea, Dahlias, Asclepias, Phalaenopsis Orchids
and Raspberry Cane!

There were three different styles of centrepieces running the length of each of the 50 ft. long tables...

There were shorter arrangements of Dahlias & Roses in Hot Pink & Orange, And taller vases full of chartreuse Hydrangea,
And finally, Magenta Phalaenopsis Orchids in a medium tall vase.
The three different heights & styles created a beautiful story down the length of the tables
Each Centrepiece has a white light box underneath so as the evening progresses the light boxes will create a glow in the water of each vase, illuminating the stems.
The 5 Gentlemen wore Hot Pink Roses with Sempervivum & English Ivy leaves...
And the 5 Ladies wore Bright Orange(Yes, that is the real colour!) Roses detailed with light grey chiffon ribbon & slate grey pearl Bracelets.
These photos were all taken during a very rushed set-up (45 minutes... Whew!) so I didn't have a chance to photograph either of the Brides or the final set-up! In a perfect world I'll be able to get some from the photographer, the superfabulous Jennifer Picard.

Feeling Green...

Today I was shopping for flowers (yes, I have a cool job.)
& I was just SO really loving all the green....
Long & cool & smooth stems of Garlic, tender & rough light green stems with fluffy fiber optic tufts of grass. Thick, mossy Green Trick Dianthus, and crazy long stemmed bright green fresh Lotus Pods.
Now I need to go water my lawn...
Keep it GREEN.

More of Robyn & Justin...

Well, it's pretty rare one wedding gets 2 posts, but the photos from photographer Jenn Best are so much better than the ones I took I thought I better add them to the blog!

Thanks Jenn for these beautiful shots!
