Jenna & Chris :: Sea Breeze Lodge

This post has been a REALLY long time in the making! And since it’s Jenna & Chris’ 1st Anniversary today – It really seemed like the perfect day to get this post up on the FLEUR Blog. This year has flown by – I cannot believe looking back at these gorgeous pictures that it has really been that long! To set the tone of the story on this one – Do you remember hearing about the really unfortunate turn of events at Sea Breeze Lodge last year, where the entire main facility succumbed to fire in the middle of the night? I can honestly remember …

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, …

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 …

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 …

Dana & Michael :: Abkhazi Gardens & Parkside Wedding

Last January Ma-Luxe Studios called with a big plan. And when Ma-Luxe says big – they always mean it! I love to collaborate with other vendors who have the same passion in what they do and working to achieve the best end product possible. There’s no finer feeling at the end of the day! So here was the situation… Ma-Luxe and the Studio Collective were looking for a team of professionals to be part in a ‘Give-Away Wedding’ unlike anything Victoria had ever seen. The full process – from initial concept down to the home purchase for the happy couple at the end of …

Amy & Colin :: Sooke Prestige Wedding

With the ‘2014 Wedding Season’ officially finished for FLEURtacious, the new branding completed, new website launched and studio put back together so that it doesn’t look as if a major flower explosion had taken place… I finally have some time to reflect on all the wonderful couples who asked me to contribute to their wedding day and all the pretty flowers that came from it all! I’d like to start off with Amy & Colin’s beautiful wedding which took place in March out at the GORGEOUS Oceanfront Prestige Resort in Sooke. When I first met with Amy over coffee, I …

Bouquets of Gratitude

Mother Nature has got to be one of the coolest ‘chicks’ around! I am completely bewildered at how a gorgeous 3D, insanely coloured, beautifully smelling ‘bloom’ comes out of a stem in the dirt. But whatever she dreams up – I am MORE than happy to create with it!! Credit Kim Kalyn Photography Welcome to this great new ‘space’ for featuring all the ‘flower moments’ in FLEURtacious by Lynda Marie’s journey. I’m delighted to share in the wonderful insight of the creating process, weddings & events that I’m asked to be a part of, as well as the things & …
