Fox Glove :: Alix Goolden Hall

Last Saturday, I was asked to be a part of a very special event in our city. A ‘Love-In’. According to the ladies from Fox Glove, I wasn’t the only one who was a little in the dark of what exactly a ‘Love-In’ is. So I Googled it, as we do. Wikipedia:: A ‘Love-In’ is a peaceful public gathering focused on meditation, love and music… (There’s a little more to this, but we will keep it PG for the Blog). My friend Chelsea who you may know as the talent force behind Paperheart Films, is also one third of the fabulous ladies that are ‘Fox …

Tessa & Brad :: Parkside Hotel

I absolutely love this time of year, looking through all the past season’s work and reliving all the beauty… Today I’m gushing over this bride’s beautiful Truvelle dress and the soft, modern, west coast vibes throughout the whole wedding. Tessa was one of the first brides who reached out to me for the 2016 season and is definitely one of the sweetest I’ve ever met.      Travelling from Alberta to the bride’s hometown here in Victoria – Tessa & Brad decided to host a beautiful intimate wedding with their closest family & friends. Stealing a few moments to themselves before the ceremony, they chose to have a first …

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 …

Anya Caliendo :: MBFW SS2015 Ghost Gardens

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to blog about THIS amazing event – so here goes, the final blog event for FLEURtacious in 2014, and quite possibly the most amazing event I have ever been a part of… . . . . . . I woke to a message one morning last summer, asking what the plans were for my Birthday – September 6th, 2014. It was from my incredibly talented friend and mentor Anya Caliendo in New York – Eek! As you can imagine, I have never leapt out of bed so quickly – barely able to contain the excitement running through …

Celebration of Flowers

The branding for the Lynda Marie companies have really been ‘a long time coming’ – more so for the Couture Millinery company, but that just meant that FLEURtacious needed to ‘play’ on the same level! This whole year has brought on so many changes and this new journey with FLEURtacious has been right on par with keeping me running – but I LOVE every second of it! It’s been very exciting to see it all came together – nothing like re-branding and designing new websites right in the thick of wedding season! But WE got there! And by ‘we’ I …
