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 …

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 …

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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …
