September Wedding

I hope you will enjoy these summery pictures of Amanda & Deanna's wedding that took place September 2013.  We thoroughly enjoyed creating the bright colourful arrangements for them.  

Amanda and Deanna drove out to the farm a week before their wedding and we took a tour of all the gardens, checking out the different flowers and colours.  It really is a unique experience to walk through gardens and choose the flowers to be used on your wedding day.  They were both drawn to the bold bright colours of late summer, orange, burgundy, and deep pink.


They chose Dahlias as their focal flowers and we used Scabiosa, Black Knight Queen Annes Lace, Zinnias and Ageratum as the secondary and fillers. 

The Bridesmaids bouquets included Rudbeckia, Dianthus, Celosia, Zinnia, couple of Dahlias, Ageratum, Black Knight, and Bachelor buttons.

 Amanda fell in love with the blue Bachelor Buttons so we used several stems of those in her bouquet and included at least one or two in Deanna's.

The photographer, Amanda Smith, captured the fun everyone was having. 
Congratulations Deanna and Amanda.  Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your fabulous day.

Photos of Maui.

We headed off to Maui, Hawaii in November and stayed for a few weeks.  We had a great time exploring the beaches, inland and the Haleakala crater, highest elevation on the island.  From the pictures I chose to post you can get an idea of what I enjoyed the most. There were flowers EVERYWHERE.  The sights and smells were intoxicating.  We visited three of the four botanical gardens on the island and hiked along paths throughout the forests and along the coasts.  The weather was fabulous and we came home rested and feeling great.

Flower Lei

Blue Jade vine.  These flowers were fabulous.

Painted Gum Eucalyptus
These trees were everywhere and very fascinating.  The colours were unbelievable.

Not sure what these were.


Don`t know what these are either, but assuming a fruit of some kind.


Type of Agave, I believe.

Of course the ocean.  

The coast and ocean were spectacular.  Lots of turtles swimming around the rocks eating the green foliage growing on the rocks.   Our daily beach walks were often highlighted with glimpses of the turtles.  The Humpback Whales were starting to arrive in the area to give birth and mate, so we were fortunate to see several sightings.  If you have the opportunity to visit, go for it.
