Express Yourself

A wedding is a snapshot of a couple for all their guests to see. Their taste, likes, loves is all captured in a wonderful celebration. Don't be afraid to show your guests who you are!  A recent bride reminded me of how important this is.

Lauren and David had a large, high style affair held at Copper Creek Golf Club. Yet, everything about the wedding was planned with an earthy, warm-hearted style that was a perfect fit for this beautiful couple.

Lauren's bouquet of calla lilies helped capture her sophisticated personality, while the rest of the decor was designed to show the couples love for organic things.

When entering the clubhouse, guests were greeted by a large tall pussy willow and white hydrangea arrangement. Birch poles pin wheeled around the massive arrangement holding place card’s that welcomed their guests.

Overlooking the 18th hole, a simple birch pole chuppah framed the ceremony.

During cocktails, antique copper pots sat on the cruiser tables brimming with hens 'n chick's.

The centrepieces were arranged in more then one design, yet both incorporated Lauren's must have: pussy willows. Even healthy beeswax candles were used to create a lightly fragranced room.

A special thanks to Ikonica for capturing our work and Lauren & David's perfect day.
