Flower Lantern floral design
Penny and Mike came from Calgary to say their vows. They had a fabulous wedding at the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort. There wedding day was very personalized in many ways, by finding vintage containers for the flower arrangements, making picnic blankets for the quests, beautiful tags for seating, and even a local accordion player was hired.
Here is what the couple had to say about the Flower Lantern,
Kathryn, You made our wedding perfect with the amazing flowers and all the suggestions for baker, accordion players, make-up and hair. You really went above and beyond being a florist. We couldn’t have pulled off such a special day without you. Thanks you for setting up the flowers too. They were beautiful and we moved them upstairs after dinner and enjoyed them all night also. Thank you Kathryn. I’m so glad we found you to be part of our wedding, you’re amazing! Penny and Mike
Vikki and Brad’s wedding took place at the Painted Boat Resort. This busy and fun couple decided on a colour theme of ivory, yellow and greens. Freesias, roses and kermit mums took first place for flower choice, with the always stunning, seeded eucalyptus as a foliage.
The photos were taken by the talented Scott McAlpine, visit him at http://www.scottmcalpinephoto.com
Loving the colour combination of this wedding with peach, yellow, white and pink to create their fresh yet romantic event. Their wedding flowers were planned completely over the internet and through phone conversations as the couple resides in Boston. Morgan and Mike tied the knot in June, 2011 in Egmont, BC at the West Coast Wilderness Lodge http://wcwl.com/
The highly recommend photographer Alana Couch graciously http://www.alanacouch.com/ gave us these brilliant shots. Checking out her site and blog, it is always inspiring.
Thanks to Linsey Hull’s skilled eye at “Select Photography” www.selectphotography.ca I am able to show you this lovely couple that “tied the knot” at a breath taking resort located in Madeira Park on the Sunshine Coast, the Painted Boat www.paintedboat.com.
I was honoured to design a bridal bouquet and boutonniere for this couple. With spring in the air and green and purple as the colour theme the flower selection was green cymbiduim, purple tulips and purple anemone and a touch of bear’s grass pulling it all together.
Sophie and Dave’s wedding was such a pleasure to work on. Most of the planning was done through email and over the phone as the couple was coming from afar. The colour theme was deep purple, light green, and white. Seasonal flowers of white peony, white dahlia, green hydrangea, green hypericum and maiden hair fern were used.
Here is what the couple had to say =)
Kathryn, I just wanted to thank you for the incredible job that you did for me. All the flowers were absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t stop smelling my bouquet all day! The green bouquets were beautiful with my bridesmaids’ dresses and the boys loved their kermit mums (they were calling them broccoli flower which was funny).
Dave and I managed to take the large bouquets back to Vancouver without them wilting which was great. Also, thank you Kathryn for putting in those peonies into the center pieces. I loved the little flecks of purple, they were incredible!
Good luck on the rest of your weddings this summer and again, thank you so much! Sophie and Dave
Unfortunately, for this wedding I was unable to beg, steal or find any photos from a photographer, except for the first two, which are from the bride (thank you). I did take some pictures of my own especially for your viewing pleasure.
The colours this bride chose were grand, fresh and bright. Seasonal, affordable and striking.
Jen and Mike picked a simple colour theme of green and white with a touch of yellow. They were surrounded by their loved ones and took over the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort for the affair.
As I got to know Jen over a short time period of emails and a consultation discussing her flower order it was clear that Mike was a lucky man. What a wonderful way to start the wedding season with a couple such as this.
Here is a photo spread that Eirn from Erin Gilmore Photography was gracious to create for us here at the Flower Lantern.
Beautiful images, thanks Erin!
Also, if you have a moment, check out their wedding at the two links to Erin’s site list below.
How wonderful pink can be! Pink is everywhere this year, so sweet, so spring and so luscious.
You can’t go wrong with cymbidiums and roses no matter what colour you choose for your wedding flowers!
Salan and John are a couple that wed at the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort on the Sunshine Coast. Their photos were taken by a dear friend of theirs who just happens to take amazing photos for a living, Rebecca Blissett.
I just love her style, edgy, fun and modern. She makes me want to be a rock star, check out her site and you will know what I am talking about ◊ ◊ ◊
This young and beautiful couple went with white and purple for the floral colours. Thank you so much for the lovely photos which were provided by Spark Photography.
