Last of summer’s blossoms ~ Emma & Derek

September is that time of year when we are greeted with crisp air and mornings wrapped in cosier clothes.  We still have a scattering of warm days but we know they are fleeting.  The threat of frost on local flower fields are a constant concern but the beauty that fills the rows makes it worth the worry.  As each season turns, I vow the new sprouting season is my absolute favourite.  My love of late summer and early fall weddings are steeped in my love of textures and big romatic garden dahlias.

Lucky for me, Emma felt the same way.  Her bouquets were bursting with all of the best parts of the season. Created with lovely earth tones, blushes and frosted greens (to hint at what’s to come) with an abundance of textures, lush dahlias and adorned with succulents.

Melissa and Brett ~ Rustic Autumn Wedding

It was such a pleasure working with Melissa and Brett.  This couple had such a warm, welcoming attitude; I couldn’t imagine the bride carrying anything but sunny sunflowers.  And I am happy to say we were able to fill her bouquet  with the last of our local, seasonal textures found at Island Meadow Farm.  From local raspberry, crespidia and wheat to dainty black eyed susan and curly willow; I was over the moon to be able to add some locally grown lovelies to Melissa’s bouquet.

The maids carried simple sunflower bunches wrapped in burlap.

The groom and his men wore viking poms with seasonal textures of wheat, raspberry and dusty miller; neatly bound in hemp twine.

Gatherings of baby’s breath in clear mason jars graced the tables for this simply rustic affair.  Melissa and Brett’s table scape was designed by Sherri Stewart of  Above The Rest.

Leanne and Curtis ~ An Island Autumn Wedding

Saturday morning dawned with the crispness that let’s everyone know that autumn is indeed here.  Fresh clean air without a cloud in the sky dominated the day for Leanne and Curtis as they celebrated their special day.

Boutonnieres were viking poms, sedum and hypericum berries.

Corsages for the Mothers were annabelle hydrangea, phalaenopsis, dusty miller and plume grass.  Pure and simple; delicate and elegant.

The father of the bride wore a matching boutonniere.
I want to extend a special thank you to Mr. S. who is the best helper a bustling designer could ever ask for.  He took very special care of the bride’s bouquet until it made it safely into the proper hands.
