Weddings...from the Lane.

A groom's boutonnière, below....

I have never really shared my floral designs in one post, and unless you go back through my archived entries you may miss my real passion, flowers! From growing them in my garden to arranging them for a prospective client, it is something I never tire of...

I can spend hours on the tiniest detail, that probably only a handful of people would notice...

From the vintage containers, to the natural elements collected in our woods, like fallen branches and moss..

Here, vintage silver bride's baskets waiting to be filled, in the carriage house...where I do all the work....

I never tire of the possibilities....

I strive to bring every clients vision to a reality...

Whether formal, or not so much...

A very casual vineyard wedding...

...utilizing Mason jars and collected vintage glass....and rusty, garden ornaments...

...to shiny gold chiavari chairs and chocolate brocade...

I like to create tabletop vignettes, rather than just one solitary arrangement...

Ferraro Roche chocolates and chocolate dipped biscotti under bell jars, with deep red roses, made for a beautiful wedding colour board just prior to the holidays....

I also had custom, chocolate brown tablecloths made for this wedding...

I must never lose sight of my clients wishes, at the forefront of every project...

Working on a seasonal urn, this past fall...

...a birthday luncheon....

I loved making these nest centrepieces for my friend Susan, for the baby shower celebrating her first grandchild...

...little white chocolate enrobed shortbread bird cookies were the favours....

It was a little boy....

...above, a Marie Antoinette inspired mock up for a fund raiser luncheon...

I loved making these, but they proved too cost prohibitive...

....but, my most favourite thing to do, is arranging flowers from the garden, like peonies...

...and roses...

...and hydrangeas...

Upper most in my mind, always to bring beauty to the weddings and events I create....I strive to surpass my client's expectations with every commission...this summer our wedding assignments will be in full swing beginning in June...wedding month... I hope you enjoyed these photos of a few of my floral projects...
