Whimsically Boho Wedding Inspiration :: Junebug Weddings

I absolutely love this time of summer… The sunsets are so vibrant, the warm breeze smells so sweet with all the gorgeous summer flowers out in full abundance and the aura surrounding most people is generally happy, free-spirited and easy going… we’re all soaking in the smoothness of the season.  This is what I consider ‘Boho Summer’ evenings… This stunning styled wedding shoot has been featured on Junebug Weddings which is VERY exciting!! Our fabulous photographer Becca at Rivkah Photography was really hoping for a feature with this publication and once submitted, we heard back in record time for a feature date… (shot, edited, submitted …

Il Covo Elopement :: Real Weddings Feature

‘Real Weddings’ named this Elopement shoot ‘Dark, Luxurious and Romantic’ – And oooohhh it’s a stunner!! Elopement with an Edge. Picture this… a gorgeous black dress, ultra modern couple and bright vibrant colour base. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!   Our beautiful city of Victoria, BC holds so many fantastic venue spaces for this type of celebration, and this one is definitely a gem! We chose to use the beautiful garden space of Il Covo Trattoria in James Bay. There is something so wonderfully romantic about Elopements – the intimacy, the ‘moments’, the details and above all – the full attention love.      “You must allow me to tell you …

Tuscany Inspiration :: Vale & Vine

Most of my dreams seem to take place in Italy…. Somewhere along the rolling hillsides of Tuscany or sprawling coastline of Amalfi to be exact. Maybe it’s a sign. I should go back… ‘La Dolce Vita’ rolls off the tongue so eloquently – (but that’s probably thanks to my recent night school classes* in Italiano). *Sidenote: My studying techniques have NOT improved much since the good ol’ school days <‘sigh’> and trying to BS in a language you barely know is not an easy feat – but I am determined to prevail! “What is the fatal charm of Italy?  What do we find there that can be found nowhere …

Natosha & Bryant :: Hatley Castle

Welcome to 2016 Friends! Phew! With the close of yet another year and wedding season – I’m looking forward to reminiscing through the beauty from the 2015 season. What a wild ride it was! 2015 was the first FULL year for FLEURtacious and I’m quite literally blown away by the love and support that I’ve received for the work I create. Thank You, Thank You, Always! To start things off rather ‘epic’ly – I decided to feature Natosha and Bryant’s wedding as the first in review. This beauty wedding is published in the Spring / Summer 2016 Issue of Weddingbells (on magazine …

Vintage Marsala Wedding Inspiration :: Artfully Wed

With the close of the year coming quickly upon us – I’ve been reflecting on what the year 2015 held in store for FLEURtacious…. I’ve been so fortunate to become great friends with many of the talented people within Victoria and Vancouver Island’s Wedding Industry. The calibre of passionate people doing their absolute best to a create THE perfect day for our Bride & Groom’s  – completely inspires and amazes me!  On the rare occasion that we can get a large group of us together – all on the same day, to create a collaborative styled photoshoot – Well those days we honestly turn into …

Romantic Orchard Wedding :: Weddingbells.ca

If ever there were a more picturesque location on Vancouver Island for a spring blossom editorial shoot than Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse – these images would definitely beg to differ! In late spring when all the apple blossoms are in full force, it’s one of the most magical places around! Kim Kalyn Photography was in touch earlier in the year to discuss her vision of a wedding editorial gushing of soft ‘pretty-ness’ and all the wonderment that an apple orchard holds in it’s early season glory.  Details… Details… Quite possibly my favourite part of editorials are the incredible close-ups of all …

Brandy & Mitchell :: Brentwood Bay Resort

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 …
