Being an Okanagan destination wedding florist I often don’t get the opportunity to meet my clients in person before their wedding day, with details being planned over email & phone. Sara & Marc were no exception – planning their wedding from out of country with quite a time change. Luckily I had the privilege to plan the floral arrangements for this beautiful wedding with the help of Sara’s mother Susan – who really brought their wedding vision to life. The result was a gorgeous Rustic Chic affair, held at The Cove Lakeside Resort in West Kelowna. Sara & Marc wanted to have very soft & simple designs so we used babies breath in the bridesmaids bouquets, filled in our hobnail jars down the aisle, and as accents on the tables & in white wood painted boxes. The brides bouquet was stunning, with the last of the seasons White Peonies, Spray Roses, Lisianthus, Freesia, Hypericum Berries, Hints of Babies Breath & Eucalyptus Greenery – I think it complemented Sara’s amazing dress perfectly. Hints of fresh lavender purchased from the Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm were added throughout the reception room. The centrepieces were simple mercury glass hurricane holders provided by the couple with groupings of water picked roses & babies breath around. The highlight was the transformation of the Cove’s wooden arbor, which we covered in Curly Willow Branches & Hanging Amaranthus accented by a crystal chandelier – providing a perfect backdrop for their nuptials. The day was beautifully captured by the incredible Jessica Zais Photography. Congratulations to Sara & Marc & thank you for letting us create these flowers for your day!
