We had the pleasure of designing the florals for Nicole + Jonathan's wedding this past weekend. Nicole worked for Mimosa for a few summers back in her high school days ... so it was fun twist to now be designing flowers for her big day!!!
Summer has hit Southern Ontario with a vengeance this year and it was a scorcher on Saturday with humidex temperatures climbing to nearly 40C (that's nearly 105F for our American friends!) ... and the sky hasn't produced a drop of rain in weeks and weeks!!! Perfect timing for this refreshing and cool yellow, grey, white and fresh green color palette!!
Nicole's flowers included white macrophylla hydrangea, yellow craspedia, yellow garden roses and grey foliages such as lamb's ear ... plus all kinds of seasonal pickin's from our organic cutting garden ... like mint, delicate cilantro blooms, variegated hosta leaves and the last of the lady's mantle blooms. We added loads of texture and interest by using lemons, funky succulents and poppy pods!

Below: The bridemaids each carried unique bouquets in the same palette ...
We love the texture in these centerpieces!!
Table centrepieces consisted of a mix of full florals and floral wreaths around a low glass pedestal with floating candles ...
