A fall wedding

 This past weekend I put together flowers for one of my favourite weddings of the year.
The lovely couple included lots of DIY elements and really personalized every part of the day.
The bride carried a wild textural bouquet of fall blooms and greens.

 The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the same.

We didn't do any flowers for the ceremony which was held at at Greek Orthodox Church, instead the couple chose to use their floral budget on the reception space.

 Held in downtown Toronto, at Airship37, the reception had lots of character. As guests arrived they entered the unique warehouse style space and enjoyed a cocktail in the bar area. which we decorated lightly with some simple arrangements made in metallic tins. Each held a slightly sifferent selection of flowers and greens, all in the main colour theme of deep reds with  some soft peaches and pinks.

As guests moved along a small hallway they passed by this collection of tins set along a window ledge. This then opened into the main space filled with guest tables for the evening dinner.

I loved the concept we worked with for the table pieces. The bride and groom  had collected tins of various sizes which they spray painted a lovely copper colour. They used a wooden plank piece to create a charger for the  arrangements, which were lush and textured with roses, spray roses, dahlias, wax flower,cottinus greener, seeded eucalyptus and a succulent. Next to that we added a smaller tin with a simple cluster of either sedum or red hypericum berries, and this held the custom made laser cut wood table numbers.  A printed menu card was set next to the flowers, and each table had a rose gold coloured llama figurine, a nod to the story of how the couple met on a trip to Tibet.

Even the bar had a special personal touch!

This wedding had everything I love involved- a couple with a great sense of fun and creative spirit, a vintage inspired venue and an eclectic floral mix with colour and fun.
