Ashley and Jordan are almost too cute for words! They were a couple that exuded joy and excitement for the future! {As you can tell by the amazing photo’s by Joel Ross Photography!} We loved working with their pastel colour palette to create a soft and lush bridal bouquet. Enjoy this peachy pink wedding inspiration!

The more we work with flowers the more we understand that each variety seems to have it’s own personality. Moody was the word of the day as we planned and prepared for this beautiful styled photo shoot by The Glamour Effect Events. With the elements of deep purples, velvet fabrics and soft sunlight, the end result of the captures by Brittany Mahood Photography were stunning, moody. We were thrilled to work with some of the city’s best: Laugh Love Cakes, Makeup Expressions by Rimpal and Vanhoft Hair to create the look for the day.

Lorena and Tim were stunning from head to toe. They had a vision for their wedding day that we loved.  Incorporating little touches of their heritage and adding small details to their day to make it extra meaningful. From the rosery on Lorena’s stunning lush winter bouquet to the centerpieces arranged in their family heirloom beer mugs, this was a wedding we were honored to be a part of.  Thank you to Brittany Mahood Photography for the beautiful captures. Location: Fort Gibraltar.

This was a couple that knew how to do a winter wedding: In Hawaii! After they were married in the tropical paradise islands they came home to a reception in the most tropical place they could find amidst the bitter Winnipeg winter: The Conservatory in Assinaboine Park. These photos are simply beautiful as is the blushing (and beautifully tanned) bride. Thank you to Sugar + Soul Photography for the gorgeous photos.

Rachel and Ryan are such a beautiful couple and we LOVED working on their wedding flowers. The mix of peach stock, white o’hara garden roses, pink spray roses and peach classic roses was simply gorgeous! As spring approaches we are anticipating many more bright and happy colour schemes. Enjoy this wedding inspiration from this past wedding season! Thank you to Kamp Photography for the beautiful captures!

Thank you to all of the beautiful blushing brides that came to our booth at the Wonderful Wedding Show this year! Here are a few shots of our booth in case you missed us. We went for a natural organic feel with a few special touches of some rustic elements. We wanted the flowers to shine amongst a palette of natural textures and classic silver pieces. We hope you were inspired! If you would like to book a consultation with Tessa, our Academy Florist Wedding Consultant, email us at or call 204-488-4822 for more information! Thank you to Kat Willson Photography for the photos!

This shoot was so much fun to be a part of. The use of so many natural foliages, moss, ferns, and the rustic and edgy take on the Alice in Wonderland theme was stunning. We were so happy to take part!

We love when brides want color in their bouquets! Erik and Michelle’s wedding florals were full of personality and fresh purple tones. Michelle’s bouquet was filled with beautiful blooms such as lisianthus, anemone, mums, carnations, calla lilies and touches of curly willow branches. Thank you to the oh so talented Janique Tessier for the gorgeous captures!
