If you have ever considered having a winter wedding, this one might just tip the scales from maybe to definitely yes! Angela and Dario got married last December, and I had the pleasure of creating the florals for their big day. Angela had a pretty clear vision for what she wanted but she also was happy to allow me some creative freedom to do my thing and build upon her initial ideas, which basically made her a dream client!
The wedding date was December 19, 6 short days before Christmas so we wanted to make sure that the florals said “Winter” not “Christmas”. We worked with lots of evergreens and stuck to whites, creams, frosty grey and even a little navy blue in the colour scheme using, roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, cedar, fir, cotton blooms, succulents, dusty miller, brunia, and privet berries. The muted colour pallet was really brought alive by all the different textures mixed together.
A common way to save on costs is to try and re-use certain items throughout the day, we were able to do that by re-using the cedar wreaths made to hang on the pews at the ceremony as some of the centrepieces. For the reception we laid them flat on tables, added a few succulent blooms and had cylinder vase with floating candles placed in the middle. They had quite a few tables so we mixed it up by doing the wreaths on 1/3 of the tables, another 1/3 had a collection of bud vases with evergreen woven through them, and the last 1/3 had a more substantial floral piece in a mercury glass pedestal vase. The head table was framed by a soft flowy draped backdrop edged with a cedar garland.
The rest of the reception decor included lots of warm whites and creams accented with gold, creating a warm and inviting scene for their guests at the Roma Hall in New Westminster.
