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 …

Lindsay & Ritch :: Church & State Winery

Well this is a little embarrassing to admit, but it seems I have not blogged since July… eek! Wow – how time really does fly when you’re having fun! To say the FLEUR site is in dire need of some updating is an understatement!! But then again, that’s what this time of the year is for… relaxing (a bit) and reliving all of the beauty from the season. There has definitely been some wonderful events that were created in 2016 and I can’t wait to share them with you! I’d like to begin with this beautiful intimate ceremony from a couple months ago… Now, …

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 …

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.     …

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 …

Kelowna Wedding :: Hotel Eldorado

‘Local destination’ weddings are such a thrill for me!! Summers are always so chaotic and busy, that while I love being home in Victoria to enjoy our beautiful summers, creating gorgeous florals for my clients… There are a lot of fun ‘summer events’ that I don’t get to partake in due the workload. But hey – I LOVE what I do – so I re-live the stories of great summer escapades through my friends and family upon their return. That wasn’t the case this time… Needless to say – when I was asked to create wedding flowers for some great friends on a gorgeous August weekend in Kelowna, BC  last summer –  I …

Megan & Justin :: English Inn

I took the month of April off from blogging to get ready for the upcoming wedding season – there’s just never enough hours in day as you all know full well! To make up for my lack of posting beautiful weddings that I’ve had a chance to work on throughout the year – I thought I’d make it up to you in featuring this gorgeous wedding with a beautiful colour pallet. They’re some of my favourite tones for a classic, romantic, pretty wedding… I first met with Megan to chat about bridal hairpieces through my company Lynda Marie Couture Millinery. During our consult, we chatted …

Lisa & Phil :: The Beach House

Well Easter is on the way at the end of this beautiful week – and it’s feeling like the perfect time to feature a beautiful blush wedding from last summer. Pretty pastels always feel so clean and refreshing!! FLEURtacious is officially a year and a month old now, so it’s been fun to reflect on the gorgeous weddings I was asked to be a part of in 2014 and to build on the excitement of what the coming season has in store! I first met with Lisa over a coffee chat with Barb from French Kiss Events. She was super easy going, fun …

Megan & Shelby :: Victoria, BC

Have you ever had the pleasure of meeting someone for the first time – but instantly felt as if you’ve known them all along? That happened to me with Megan – this beautiful bride. We met for a consultation only a few weeks before her wedding at the end of summer and the more we talked, the more we discovered how many connections we had in common. And to top it off – she’s pretty much one of the sweetest people I’ve ever encountered. This talented lady is the owner of The Green Kiss which is a natural cosmetics company based right here in Victoria, …

Professional BC Wedding Awards 2014

I was going to attempt to ‘Blog’ in the order of events throughout the year – but some events are just too exciting not to share right away! At the end of the summer each year, ’tis the season of awards submissions. The deadlines for submitting work is usually the middle of September which is the tail end of the crazy busy season for most of the industry vendors. I’m sure that photographers secretly dread this time of year too – all the industry vendors desperately seeking photos that showcase their work from a particular wedding that fits within the submission period… This year was my …
