Sarah & Darren were married on a beautiful, wintery November day (November 9, 2013 to be exact) at Gunn's Dairy Barn at Heritage Park Historial Village. Flowers by Janie was delighted to be chosen as their wedding florist! It was so much fun working with this couple to bring in their wedding colour palette of yellow and charcoal while choosing flowers that would survive the pre-ceremony photography session in below 0 degree Celsius weather! The results were rustic styled bouquets tied with twine using flowers that could withstand cooler conditions such as; eryngium thistle, craspedia, gypsophila (baby's breath), scabiosa pods and solidago. We also added in non floral elements such as wheat, pussy willow, silver brunia and cotton to add more interest and texture! The men wore boutonnieres made of craspedia & wheat, while Darren's had a bloom of thistle added to it.Sarah & Darren found the charming silver crackle tea light holders that adorned the guests' tables which looked wonderful encircled by rustic wreath's with fresh flowers! The flowers were perfect for the interior of the Gunn's Dairy Barn which is very quaint and ideal for a rustic, country themed wedding! Congratulations Sarah & Darren we are so happy for you both!Thank you to Sergei Belski Photography for supplying us with all the images below!Venue: Heritage ParkFloral Designs: Flowers ...

Chantel & Byron are engaged! Christy D. Swanberg from Christy D. Swanberg photography contacted us at the end of August to help give this sweet couple an extra special engagement session. We were happy to provide the florals for this stylized real life e-session which were an eclectic mix of orange roses, erynigum (thistle), scabiosa pods, delphinium, pieris buds, bupleurum, solidago & mint! Our colour inspiration was navy blue & orange and the couple even arrived in attire to match! Christy and stylist, Andrea Hodgson, set up colourful homemade quilts, pillows, old books & crates to create a movie in the park atmosphere at the barn in Inglewood. Most of the engagement session took place here and the couple loved the comfy, rustic yet romantic set up and especially the details Christy included of having bowls full of kettle corn, licorice, fuzzy peaches, M & M's & mini Reeses pieces to share! Below are some beautiful images of this unique fall e-session. Chantel & Byron will be getting married this December. Congratulations to the two of you!Photo: Christy D.
