The colours were our favourites: soft pinks and blush, pale peaches, spring green, creamy whites. Her dress was a the palest shade of blush and was layers and layers of tule.

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.

The gorgeous succulents were grown just for this wedding. This was the first time we used our fancy new rustic bar, which we rent out as a set along with rustic stands for cocktail tables and more. It was well loved while guests and the couple and their family danced the night away to a swinging jazz trio.Can you spot the stunning merlot coloured lady slipper orchid? A last minute addition, we added them to Yu Nong’s bouquet without knowing the national flower of Singapore is an orchid! Yu Nong and Alex were both so touched.

On a sunny summer day, our dear, creatively gifted, hilarious, sweet (seriously, she’s the whole package) friend Daisy pulled off a surprise vow renewal and birthday party for her husband’s 40th. She did an incredible job secretly preparing this amazing event and while Adam was out fishing, we quickly transformed their home for the ceremony, sit-down dinner and party. Barb Raymond of French Kiss Events coordinated, Truffles Catering did the amazing meal, Mel Baird did make up and Elena Roberts of Conscious Hair styled her hair. The whole day was captured by one of the best photographers around, Ryan McDonald.
Vanessa helps with Daisy’s floral crown–isn’t it a fresh, bright take on the traditional floral crown? It’s perfectly Daisy, who loves quirky, unique things.
The guests were in for a surprise of their own! They thought they were coming for a surprise party for Adam, which they were, but they had no idea about the vow renewal. Daisy designed and wrote all the notes, signs and collages at the party, and everything reflected her creative talent and warmth.
Spot the lemons, artichokes, cabbage and other produce? We featured local produce heavily in the arrangements because the couple are the owners of The Root Cellar and their inspiration for opening the store was to enable Victoria residents to purchase local food from the many Vancouver Island farmers that have delicious, healthy food to offer.
Done! Now let’s get this party started, shall we?
