The brilliant Jenna Tye came with us on yet another wedding set up, to capture some images for us. Her work speaks for itself and her intuituition and eye for the story behind the scenes are second to none. We are absolutly smitten with her and her photography and are eagerly awaiting her wedding day in a few weeks when we can return the favour of beauty with our floral designs. Jenna suggested we do a post with some b&w images of us “hard” at work. Our work days are often filled with gales of laughter, fun and inspiring beauty. We always end up having a great time with our clients, and love the chance we get to know them as we work with them to make thier visons become a reality. Here are some moments behind the scenes from a recent job.
It was an absolute honour in every sense of the word, for us to be asked by three of our “idols” in the Floral Design world, to create a piece for this year’s World Rose Festival.
Hilary Miles, Maureen Sullivan and Donna Hutton contacted us in early January and asked if we would like to represent Vancouver Island in the Floral Design component of the festival. It took place in the spectacular new Vancouver Convention Centre and was displayed in the “floral promenade”. We used over 200 stems of imported roses in all shades ranging from pale champagne to bright orange. Jenna Tye the brilliant photographer from Victoria accompanied us and our design all the way from our studio, on the ferry too the massive convention centre. Jenna never disapoints no matter what the subject is to so keep checking our website for Rose Festival spread in the galleries. In the mean time here are a few sneak peaks. Thank you, to our mentors Hilary, Maureen and Donna for this most amazing opportunity.

Another magical day for a wedding at Sea Cider that we were thrilled to be a part of. Emily and Beau were married in the evening on June 12th while looking out over the view from the deck in the ciderhouse. The couple, from New Zealand, had flown in a few days prior and the day could not have been more perfect for them. Once again we met and planned with Emily over lots of emails and a few spotty calls back and forth. We chose to go with a rustic, west coast elegant theme, using several different kinds of textural folliage and filler. Waxflower, buplereum, pittisporum and salal were the base of all the table centres and they were accented with beautiful soft apricot roses. The tables were set with the most extrordinary individual sets of antique china that the brides mother has been lovingly collecting over the years. Between the china, roses, shells and driftwood the tables looked fantastic and the tent was simply stunning. . The large arrangements flanking the ceremony site were overflowing with light green Annabelle hydrangeas, soft white lisianthus and whispy fiber optic grass. Emily’s bouquet was a perfect posy of lush white and soft pink peonies accented with the clean elegant lines of lavendar calla lilies, and white orchids. Her bridesmaids carried small posies with similar blooms including the highlights of soft apricot spray roses. Our lovely friend Margaret joined us on Thursday in our studio to lend her talented hands to the 21 centrepieces we made. How lucky we were to have our talented and beloved friend Jenna Tye follow us to capture the floral journey from start to finish. The abundently talented Christine Smart coordinated the event and was the magic touch that made things go so smoothly for us as we arrived to set up. Thank you Christine! Truffles expertly catered and executed the dinner and drinks for the evening. We can’t wait to see photos of the beautiful Emily in her dress and more images of the entire day captured by Erica Chan, check out her blog teaser. Thank you to both Emily and Beau we wish you much love and hapiness.
This past weekend we were honoured to be asked by our friends at Bernstien & Gold to participate in their annual Fashion Show benefiting the Women’s Transition House Society. They teamed up with the best clothing stores in Victoria; Rebel Rebel, Addiction, Luv It Boutique and put on a spectacular show in the front garden of a private home in Rockland. The theme of the event was “Marie Antoinette”, which for us conjured up images of giant blooms in white, and pink. Big, lush and full. We created the arrangements using the most divine pink and white roses, peonies in pale pink and white and of course the most decadent of blooms the giant white hydrangea. Our beautiful friend, and uber talented Jenna Tye came with us and captured these fabulous images for us. Check out her own blog about Let Them Eat Cake . We had a blast being a part of this event and loved working for a great cause with such amazing local business women. Truly an exceptional bunch that we are proud to call our peers.
