It was a spontaneous request to take park in this styled bridal shoot and we couldn’t help ourselves. Deanna (one of our wedding designers) used burgundy peonies, alstroemeria, roses, berries and veronica along with foraged apple blossoms and foliage to create an over-sized garden bouquet. Thank you to the other vendors who allowed us to participate!

Wedding season is quickly approaching and we figured it was time to pull up our sleeves and buckle our seat-belts because it is going to be a beautiful year full of amazing flowers and designs!

Our main booking season runs between January and May. That is when we do the bulk of our consultations. We do have some dates still available for weddings in the 2015 season so if you’ve been thinking of booking your flowers, do it quickly! We would hate to miss out on being part of your special day.

It was such a pleasure to take part in Katie and Claude’s wedding day. The weather was warm and the sun was out. What more could you ask for on a Saturday in February! The combination of florals, trailing ribbons and greenery came together to fit the wedding aesthetic perfectly. Thank you to This Sweet Love Photography for capturing our blooms so beautifully! Venue: Fort Gibraltar

On a chilly autumn morning we drove out to a beautiful little old house just past Portage La Prairie for a portfolio photo-shoot of some of our wedding designer’s work. These gorgeous images shot by Simply Rosie Photography paired with the delicate papered walls was a match made in heaven. Enjoy these gorgeous images!

Tracy was such a beautiful bride. When she came into the shop for her consultation she already had some beautiful ideas about what she wanted her wedding flowers to be. Each bridesmaid bouquet was unique in it’s own way yet suited the wedding aesthetic perfectly. And from her hair flowers to the cake flowers Tracey’s vision came to life. It was such a lovely combination of roses, spray roses and orchids. The reception was held at The Gates on Roblin and the gorgeous photos were captured by Kamp Photography.

We are so glad to finally put these gorgeous photos up for you all to see! (Taken by the incredible talent, Simply Rosie Photography) This wedding was recently featured in Style Me Pretty and we were more than thrilled. Jewel and Connor’s wedding was the perfect combination of beautiful decor and meaningful sentiment. This was a family event through and through and by the end of it all we truly felt like part of the family. Jewel’s flowers were composed of Juliet Garden Roses, Pink O’Hara garden roses, pink spray roses, a variety of foraged foliage, foraged apples, Engagement roses, Hydrangea, olive leaf and Queen Anne’s Lace. Enjoy this beautiful Winnipeg wedding inspiration!
