Silken + Patch

Our team at Verbena was over the moon when we were hired for the wedding of rowing champs Silken Laumann and David Patchell Evans. The Olympic gold medallist and GoodLife Fitness owner were planning an intimate wedding at their home in Victoria, BC, and asked us to create large floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres, and also to put together the table decor.

We combined white and green flowers with touches of burgundy and merlot as a subtle and sophisticated nod to the colours of the Canadian Flag. The team drew on nature-evoking foliage like ferns and grasses, and used gorgeous lime green hops, fluffy white hydrangeas and breathtaking roses. On the table, we used touches of dark grey, antique-inspired votives and tall dark grey tapers to set the mood. Laura Prpich from Tuktu Paper was the genius behind all the paper goods and the gorgeous turquoise leather journals at the place settings (an ode to Silken’s love of journaling). She created all the place cards (each with a hand-stamped wax seal), the menus and programs. Each place setting also had a beautiful velvety chocolate cosmo on the napkin.

Truffles created the amazing food for the sit-down dinner for 30 people on Friday and the party for 100 the next night. Side One, the best wedding Band in BC came over from Vancouver and had the dance floor full til the wee hours of the morning.
