Emily & Martin were wed at Sainte-Famille Wines in Windsor back in June. She chose soft pinks, crisp whites and hints mixed foliages for her flowers. Thank you to Emily & Martin and Kristen Dunlop Photography for sharing your beautiful memories with us!
We ended our 2017 wedding season with Bobby & Kimberly's celebration at Keith's Brewery in Halifax. Photographed by Evan McMaster, we could not have asked for a sweeter couple or more beautiful wedding to cap off a wonderful year.

Excited to share a peek of Lauren & Devon's beautiful wedding from this past June at The Prince George in Halifax. At the bottom of the post we've listed a vendor source of all the wonderful people who helped make their big day a reality.
Back in December my husband and I took a little trip to Toronto. Nothing special, just some time to relax and recenter after a busy wedding season. While we were there I attended a table top workshop at Bloom School. The day I went, they were hosting a Holiday Market and there were a bunch of different vendors and makers selling their wares, a Flower Bar set up by Blush & Bloom (who also own Bloom School). I walked around the studio, looking at their beautiful set up and thought what an inspiring place it must feel like to come to work everyday.
For the past 2 summers I've spent working from home sharing a small unfinished space in our basement with my pups Chole & Lady. I've never really felt that space matched how I wanted my business to feel and it often limited the things I wanted to do. When we got home, I started looking for a small commercial space. I wanted something with a short commute, reasonably priced, where I could have a bigger space for production and a pretty area for client meetings and photography.
Our new home is located on Fairbanks Street in Downtown Dartmouth. Our studio which is just under 700 sq ft is on the 2nd floor of a shared warehouse and is made up of three parts. The first is the office, the place where we are excited to have our clients come meet with us to hash out all the dreams of their big day. One of my favorite parts about the office is that it has two huge windows which overlook the Harbour with a gorgeous view of Halifax. They fill the entire space with such beautiful natural light. The second is workshop. This is where we will receive, sort and process all the flowers for our events. All of the production magic will happen here! The third is our storage area which is a small separate room lined with shelves which will house all of our supplies and rentals.
While we've already made our self at home in the office, we'll be taking over the workshop space in June, once we are in the full swing of weddings! My family and I have been busy painting, assembling and shopping for the new space over the past couple months. I've always been pretty intentional about building our tiny family business without creating debt; so we've made due with what we have and bargain shopped for the rest. I found a few second hand vintage pieces that I really loved and my dad built our benches and flower risers. So far we're loving the way things have turned out and we'll keep you update on how the process goes throughout the summer.
One of my favorite things to do in the down season is participate in collaborative shoots with other vendors in the Maritimes. Not only do you get gorgeous photos like these incredible shots from J Wells Photography, but you get the chance to meet such wonderful people who are also so passionate about what they do. I had so much fun working on this project at Lot six with an awesome team.

I really love when other friends who work in our wedding community ask me to create something beautiful for their day. I met Kelsie for the first time back at Bliss the Bridal Event last year. Kelsie is an incredibly talented Make Up Artist and back in the summer we had so much fun collaborating on a styled shoot at my parents house on the river (Check it out!). Not only does Kelsie have a gift with make up - she can also plan one gorgeous wedding!
Ian + Kelsie tied the knot at Merseys River Chalet & Nature Retreat back in October. I think these gorgeous photos taken by Sydney MacLennan Photography do the perfect job of capturing what a special place this really is. Kelsie's flowers were a soft and wild mix of dried lavender, caspea, wax flower, babies breath and mixed foliage.
Congratulations Kelsie + Ian!
