Miranda & Ian :: Villa Marco Polo

The Villa Marco Polo Inn has to be one of the most perfect places in all of Victoria! Not only are the Innkeepers of this gem absolute sweethearts, but there just isn’t another venue quite like it with the same Italian flair. My first conversations regarding flowers with Miranda were over the phone. She started out by telling me that she wasn’t looking for soft romantic colours, but a bold statement of colour that was fun and radiant. (Colour!? I’m IN!!) We eventually met up in Victoria for a coffee chat and once we discussed further I could tell this bride has a vibrant and beautiful personality – Very …

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 …

Lindsay & Derek :: The Guild

Where do I even begin when it comes to writing a blog post for two of my favourite people on their wedding day!? I’m sure these two will look familiar to you if you’ve ever attended a wedding or basically any fun event on Vancouver Island – (I’m still not entirely sure how they are able to be everywhere at the same time)… but yes, this is Derek & Lindsay from Four Frames Photo Booth. This is Derek. He’s cool! This is Lindsay (his soon to be wife at the moment this photo was taken… notice his face in the reflection of …

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 …

Crystal & Dan :: Hatley Castle

I can’t resist it! I’m posting another stunner from last summer at none other than the gorgeous Hatley Castle. Figured I’d go for a hat trick – 3 posts in a row of one of my favourite venues on Vancouver Island! From the moment I met Crystal and Dan, with Barb from French Kiss Events, I knew this wedding was going to be so beautifully presented. Picture perfect for a castle setting with so many beautiful details… I just love to meet couples who are so in tune and sweet with each other. Crystal and Dan were no exception.     …

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 …
