Kalie & Adam’s Coldstream Barn Wedding

Kalie & Adam’s beautiful barn wedding was held at the stunning outdoor wedding venue Silver Sage Stables in Coldstream, BC.    From the gorgeous wheat fields surrounding the property to the stunning spacious barn,  their wedding was truly beautiful from start to finish. Their day was beautifully captured by Kevin Trowbridge Photography.  Their theme of Vintage Romance was accented with touches of gold, pastel colours, lace and stunning decor from Vintage Origami Weddings & Events.   We designed and created the romantic & vintage inspired flowers in colours of peach, pink, cream, blush &  lots of eucalyptus greenery.  The centrepieces were each a bit different and designed in assorted milk glass vases.   A favourite piece  we created for their wedding was the 4th floral tier for the stunning 5 tier cake designed by Kakes by Kathie.   Check out the swoon worthy ruffle fabric backdrop created by Yuriko of Vintage Origami.  Congratulations Kalie & Adam, and thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful day!

Sara & Marc’s Rustic Wedding at the Cove Lakeside Resort

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!

Meredith & Ryan’s La Punta Norte Wedding

Meredith & Ryan’s La Punta Norte Wedding was daydreamy from beginning to end.   When I met with Meredith on a rainy spring day she had such a beautiful vision for her day; Rustic Elegance (my favourite!) using shades of coral, peach, pink and soft green. She had brought along paint chips for me to have so that I could find the best flowers to match with their colour scheme & theme.  She had some great ideas for what she wanted for flowers but allowed me to be completely creative & come up with something unique for her – floral designers thrive on this!    Succulents were the main aspect in all of the décor, so  I included them in every piece I created for them. Thanks to Kevin Trowbridge Photography for sharing all of these beautiful images from their special day.

Industrial Glamour – Okanagan Bridal Expo Booth 2014

   Well it’s that time of year again –  wedding show season!   I’ve done at least one show every year since I started Classic Creations in the Fall of 2009, and love looking back on how I’ve grown in my business and designs since my very first show October 2009 (and over 130 weddings later).    These shows are all about showcasing yourself and what you love, and finding a way to stand out against everyone else out there.   What I love most about these shows is being able to create something unique that hasn’t been seen before & that inspires me and makes me happy.  It’s also a perfect time to feature some new rental products, see what other Okanagan wedding vendors are up to,  and of course most importantly meet some lovely brides excited about planning their day!


In November I moved into a brand new industrial studio space, which is what ended up inspiring my “Industrial Glamour” booth.  The furniture pieces I have purchased for my studio space were perfect for my booth design – bringing in hints of the industrial theme,  while I made sure the flowers were bold & glamorous.   I set everything up the night before in my studio, to make sure  it was exactly how I wanted it, and I didn’t want to take it down!

In choosing my flowers I decided I wanted to do something brighter & a bit more bold than what I have been doing lately.  The 2013 wedding season was the year of muted pastels flowers – specifically blush, white & peach, so I wanted to feature something a bit different.   Don’t be afraid of colour, you can still create an elegant and glamorous look when paired with rustic pieces & gold accents!   I used Hydrangeas, Peonies, Garden Roses, Standard Roses, Ranunculus, Tulips & Orchids in shades of Orange, Peach, Coral, Pink, Purple & White with a hint of Grey Dusty Millar & Seeded Eucalyptus (I have an obsession with Dusty Millar).    I love how the colours pop off the gold vases, gold dinnerware, ornate lanterns & reclaimed grey wood.

Thank you to the talented Jon & Jenny Adrian of Adrian Photographers, who took  these beautiful photos of my booth.  I so appreciate their talent & continued support,  and I am really looking forward to working with them more this wedding season!

I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed creating my booth design, and I hope it can inspire you to create your own perfect wedding or event.

Annette & Kevin – Cedar Creek Winery & Hotel Eldorado

Annette & Kevin were married at Cedar Creek Winery this past September, on a beautiful Autumn Okanagan day.  Annette wanted an elegant & romantic feel for their day, with touches of peach, pink, white and  hints of powder blue.   With the help of Wedding Planner Laura Lebbon of English Rose Weddings  and Yuriko Larson of  Vintage Origami – I think we captured her vision perfectly.  Reception was held at The Hotel Eldorado, and the room was transformed beautifully with rectangular tables, gold chivari chairs, gold chargers and lush pastel flowers.

Keeping with the romantic theme,  I used lush & ruffled flowers for their floral arrangements, consisting of Hydrangeas, Garden & Standard Roses,  Spray Roses, Lisianthus, Brunia Berries & beautiful Dahlias (which I hand picked locally the day before the wedding).    Thank you to Jamie Willey of Studio 78 for sharing these beautiful images with us, and congratulations to Annette & Kevin!

Bridgette & Dana’s Cedar Creek Winery & Hotel Eldorado Wedding

Bridgette & Dana’s wedding was gorgeous from beginning to end, and it was an absolute pleasure to create the garden inspired floral details for their day.   Bridgette had chosen a classic colour palette of pink, peach, blush & white which was carried out throughout the entire wedding from the bridesmaids dresses – to the stationary – to the linens in the reception.  The floral arrangements I created consisted of Garden Roses, Dahlias, Spider Mums, Spray Roses, Lisianthus, Standard Roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, Wax Flower, Seeded Eucalyptus and Fern.

Thank you to Jon & Jenny of Adrian Photography for sharing these beautiful images of the floral details!

The view at Cedar Creek Winery is breathtaking and was accented with two large urn arrangements on top of the wine barrels.  A smaller arrangement in a rustic watering can was placed in front of the signing table.

Single blush roses were wrapped with ribbon & the table numbers to create a unique seating chart.  Love how it turned out, but took a fair amount of time to tie and pin each rose perfectly in line!

Vintage Teacup Inspired Wedding

Ash & Luc’s July Wedding was a vintage dream!  Their ceremony was held at the beautiful Benvoulin Heritage Church in Kelowna, BC and their  reception was held at The Hotel Eldorado.   I loved creating the soft pastel flowers in shades of peach, cream &  white with hints of grey greenery.    The arrangements consisted of Garden Roses, Spray Roses, Hydrangea, Hypericum, Stellata Pods, Stocks, Queen Anne’s Lace and Dusty Millar greens and were arranged in assorted sized vintage milk glass vases.  Vintage teacups from Vintage Origami’s collection were such a sweet addition to the décor.

Thank you so much to Barnett Photography for sharing these images from their day!

Spring Boathouse Wedding Styled Shoot

Here are some of my favorites from the shoot which was recently featured here on the Pretty Blog!
