There are always a couple weddings every year that stand out perhaps just a little bit more than the others when I reflect back on all the gorgeouness of the season. Brandy and Mitchell’s wedding at the stunning Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa is definitely one of those for the 2014 wedding season with FLEURtacious. This beautiful couple were hosting a ‘local destination’ wedding as they were from Edmonton and wanted to get married on the West Coast. The Brentwood Bay Lodge really is such a treat and perhaps a place that some of us take for granted when we get to experience it in all it’s splendor on a regular basis. To see the magic that this beautiful venue holds when it’s seen through the eyes of newcomers – makes you reflect on truly how lucky we are to live in this slice of paradise.
I always look forward to working with Barb at French Kiss Events and her amazing team – she plans some of the most stunning weddings this town has seen – every detail executed exquisitely! During our initial consultation with both Brandy and Mitchell – our creative minds were overflowing with décor details and excitement – West Coast refined elegance at it’s best!
I’ve never before had a bride ask for white Allium as one of the main focal flowers in her bouquets and arrangements – I knew we were going to get along right off the bat! I love to use unique and unexpected flowers. Allium is such a stunning bloom and adds such great texture to the classic smoothness of Calla Lilies and Phaleanopsis Orchids. It was such a treat for me personally to have a unique request and be pleasantly surprised with how much depth and modernism it gave to this classic timeless style and design.The’ Meaning of Flowers’ – I truly believe that the flowers a woman chooses to carry on her wedding day reflect her values in life, love and the future she is creating – (even if this is done subconsciously). We are all drawn to certain flowers and colours – that’s what makes us all unique….
