Totally smitten I am, smitten with two of the best people I have ever worked with. Bryn & Jeff, you had me at hello and I am still amaze we pulled it off given that all we did at our first meeting was laugh. Bryn is all heart and Jeff is all humour two of my top qualities, so this day was an expression of love and laughs from start to finish. It helped that me and everyone that is part of the Verbena team fell in fast love with these two and their families and friends as it made the preparations and creating all the more easy.
The palette was filled with greens, whites and touches of raspberry. Easy to do at this time of year, as the flowers are all in their prime right before the frosts of early fall start to turn them. The bouquets for Bryn and her lovely bridesmaid were a perfect combination of just that using some gorgeous rich red garden roses from the gardens of Starling Lane.
Bryn is a natural beauty, she shines and glows from within, and their is an absolute breathtaking quality to her that encompasses the essence of simplicity. So with that being the starting point, we filled the floral elements with an abundance of simple and lush blooms like hydrangeas, roses, pods, berries ferns and mosses. Gorgeous magnolia foliage with it’s rich hues of green and suede like brown were the base of all the arrangements.
Bryn made an entrance in her Dad’s red pick-up, one of the better ways to get to wedding I would say. A perfect glowing bride emerged from the truck with her beautiful friend Lisa and a beaming Trevor, ready to walk down the aisle. Such sweetness and love in these moments right before the ceremony. Bryn you couldn’t have been more beautiful!
Guests were treated to another feast from the amazing Dan & Micayla of the London Chef, they mingled in the beautiful garden’s of the Starling Lane Winery for cocktails prior the fabulous dinner reception at The Brentwood Bay Lodge & Spa.
The reception was decorated with more of the same rustic beauty as the ceremony. We created large “trees” of oak leaves to surround the space, it was a gorgeous way to mark the space. The tables were laid with gorgeous linens centrepieces created in beautiful cedar boxes made by Bryn’s Dad. Candles were everywhere and they were the perfect compliment to the gorgeous space and the setting sun over Brentwood Bay.
The wedding was beautifully “branded” and coordinated by the talented Roxanne Cave from Celebrate Whistler Events. It was great to be able to collaborate with her and her team. Her touches made everything come together seamlessly.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. French, thank you from the bottom of my heart for asking me and crew to be a small part of your fantastic day.

Maybe it is because the following weddings palette brings together the best of nature’s colours. Blue like the sky and the ocean, green like the trees and the grass and white like the clouds, whatever the reason this palette re-kindles my love for the spectacular hydrangeas. Frankie and Ryan’s wedding has done just that. What a beautiful day it was, not only was the weather perfect but the hydrangeas were in a word exquisite!
We used them everywhere from the bouquets and hair flowers, to the large arrangements for the church and the centrepieces. The bouquets were a beautiful combination classic whites and greens with Frankie’s bouquet incorporating more beautiful blues and purples
This couple was a breeze to work with, I loved Frankie’s style and quick descsion making, it made this wedding a pleasure to work on.
We used masses of blue, white and green hydrangeas along with hints of vibrant purple agapanthus, and veronica in two large arrangements that flanked the altar in the church. The ceremony was held in the lovely and quaint heritage church, Holy Trinity in North Saanich. This church sits right on the water overlooking the beautiful Patricia Bay.
Watching the bridal party and all of their family and friends gather in the yard of this lovely little church, was a picture right out of the english country side.
The reception got under way under the marquee out at the beautiful Sea Cider, guests were treated to a fantastic spread from Truffles Catering and all was documented by the brilliant photography of Helene Cyr.
Congratulations Frankie & Ryan, it was a fantastic expirience putting this wedding together with you, from start to finish!

Lovely, sweet, smart, funny, sensitive, kind, endearing, thoughtful, easy going…some of the ways I use to describe this couple. Megan and Devin came to see me back in May and they “had me at yellow, white and grey” So many reasons to fall in love with these two, not the least of which was their choice of colour palette.
Megan asked that the bouquets for her girls be representative of their personalities, above was for her friend who was “80′s crossed with a bit of punk rock” and below for her other bridesmaid who is “romantic, soft and all pearls”
The bouts for the Devin and his groomsmen, were so much fun!
Sea Cider was the venue once again, we used a beautiful and rustic combination of yellows, whites and gorgeous little grey green succulents everywhere! One of the inspirations for the palette was Megan’s love of craspedia, those little yellow balls. They had a staring role in vintage bottles.
Last but certainly not least was THE most FANTASTIC guest book idea I have ever seen. Devin was the creative force behind this and how much fun! A clothes line of course! With little paper t-shirts and pants to write the wishes on. Genius I say, pure genius!
Thank you Megan and Devin for asking us to be a part of your day. It was with great pleasure and an absolute honour that we came together with you and your families today. Can’t wait to see the pictures from Lara Eichorn, they are going to be fantastic!

Ahhhhh Sea Cider, the beautiful ciderhouse and farm out on the penninsula in Central Saanich. It is just so beautiful there, especially this time of year as all the apple trees are in bloom with lovely soft pale pink blooms. Ashley and Tim had a perfect day, and I was really so very thrilled with the final product today.
Lilacs were the jumping off point today, lilacs in brilliant white, and that beautiful vibrant purple. We have worked with the colour palette three times already this season, and it is simply because it so incredibly beautiful. Greens, whites, mauves and purples mixed with some soft grey. It really doesn’t get better then this!
