It’s been another incredible year. Kelly and Bill’s wedding was perfect, and now even sweeter! Thank you to everyone at the BC Wedding Awards for honouring us for the second year in a row as Best Wedding Florist. We are so lucky to be a part of couples’ once-in-a-lifetime celebrations, and we get to do what we love (work with the beauty of nature) with people we love! If you haven’t seen Kelly and Bill’s wedding, please check it out. Kelly is the daughter of Verbena co-founder Jenny Dagg and it was an indescribable wedding for us.

I am still in shock! On Thursday, November 27, 2013 the Professional BC Wedding Awards took place at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier in North Vancouver and I was lucky enough to win Best Wedding Florist – Overall.

You can see the photos from the submission (Anjali & Alex, July 2013) on my Facebook page or here on my blog.

Those who know me know that this means a lot to me – I am a small florist from the island – and it is an honour to be a finalist with companies like Just Fresh Concepts and Sunflower Florist.

As some of you know, 100% of my business is from referrals and online, but I wanted everyone to know that I have a team of great friends, family and colleagues who all pitch in to help and I couldn’t do what I do without them.

Thanks again to Vasia Weddings who’s stunning photos I used for the submission and to the team at Petite Pearl Events for their exceptional planning of this wedding. Congratulations to all the winners and finalist of the Professional BC Wedding Awards.

You can hear my thoughts on how I work as I was recently interviewed by Adam Sawatsky at CTV Vancouver Island news.
