It’s always a privilege to help a couple with their wedding. A wedding day is such a special time in someone’s life. One of the lovely couples I helped with their wedding this summer sent me some kind words recently and I have shared their wedding testimonial below. Thank you so much Desiree and Bradley!

“We just wanted to thank you for all your hours of work in perfecting our best day ever. We had so many compliments about the entire day and how smoothly it ran. Also so many compliments about how we thought of everything. It wasn’t us it was you and we are so grateful. You made things stress free and allowed us to truly enjoy our day. You made our vision come to life and it was a pleasure to work with you.”

Thanks so much for everything,
Desiree and Bradley

Lilies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday I would like to discuss lilies. There are various types of lilies including calla, oriental and stargazer lilies…to name a few. These beautiful, exotic flowers are sometimes used in wedding bouquets, boutonnières and floral arrangements. If lilies will be included in your special day there is something you may want to address. If you look at the picture of the lily above you will notice little tentacles (or filaments is the technical term) in the middle of the lily. The fuzzy ends on the tentacles are called anthers. The anthers make pollen and the pollen can get on your wedding attire and stain it. Therefore, you may want to consider having the anthers removed from the lilies you will be using at your wedding or special event. I hope everyone is having a great week!

Sincerely,
Heather

Ring Bearer Pillows

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe phrase “ring bearer pillow” tends to elicit images of traditional, white, satin fabric ring pillows. A lot of couples select fabric ring bearer pillows and these pillows are available in a wide variety of colors and themes. However, today I would like to talk a little about another type of “pillow” your ring bearer can carry down the aisle on your wedding day. As you can see in the picture above, an alternative is to incorporate real flowers into your ring bearer pillow. The flowers may have a separate base (similar to what is pictured above) or in some cases real flowers are woven together to form an entire pillow. I think either of these options can be quite lovely and add a little extra dimension to your wedding decor!

Sincerely,
Heather

Summer Wedding Pictures

Canola FieldThe summer months provide ample picturesque settings for photographs in the Maritimes. During the warmest months of the year we have the opportunity to stroll through beautiful botanical gardens, hike forested mountains and dip our toes in the Atlantic Ocean. However, today I would like to talk about a different type of setting. Canola fields are in full bloom this time of year and these yellow fields are absolutely stunning! I think they would make a wonderful backdrop for summer wedding pictures or family pictures. I hope you are enjoying your summer!

Sincerely,
Heather

Roses

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALet’s talk a little about roses today. Roses, more than any other flower, seem to symbolize love. This is undoubtedly one of the reasons why they are very popular on Valentine’s Day, at weddings and during various other special occasions. In addition, to their symbolic nature, roses have other qualities that make them a worthy option. For instance, roses come in a variety of colors which may make them easier to incorporate into your events’ color scheme. They also can be fairly hearty and survive for quite a while out of water. Thus, helping to make roses a more attractive flower option for wedding bouquets or boutonnières. However, you will want to make sure all thorns are removed from their stems if roses are going to be used in this manner!

Sincerely,
Heather
