Inspired by nature and unstructured + modern style; we enjoy creating designs full of texture that resemble what you may see in gardens or fields, and even take inspiration from art and fashion. Each wedding is created custom and designed to best reflect you as a couple, by working closely with you to understand your vision. Incorporating local blooms always when possible, designing heavily based on season as we love supporting local flower farmers and greenhouses. We even have our own small cutting garden with a variety of home grown blooms featuring favourites like dahlias and peonies to give a personal touch to our clients. More than just your wedding florist, we love creating relationships that last beyond the wedding day! Download 2023 + 2024 Pricing Guides
As a previous wedding planner before going full time in florals; I completely understand how overwhelming everything can be! After filling out the online inquiry form and providing details, initial pricing will be sent to ensure we are a good fit. This follows with a custom personalized quote, and typically a quick initial consult over video or phone. If you would love to have us be apart of your day we only require a 10% non-refundable deposit (or $500 if no quote total) to secure the date!
As we dream together after booking, inspiration boards and additional elements like decor and tablescapes come into place. Each floral package includes up to 2 additional meetings leading up to your wedding, with the final detail meeting happening 6-8 weeks before your wedding (Typically in person at our flower shop). We are always happy to offer any advice and expertise during your wedding planning, and also offer additional set-up options for personal decor (place cards, guest favours, menus, signage, etc).
As your wedding florist, we want to make this process easy and enjoyable, and always provide transparency around pricing and design options. Many variables depend on what you spend on your wedding flowers. Typically, sizing, abundance, special flower types, labour/setup involve, distance, and season all are factored into pricing. No two weddings are the same, this is why we believe in custom quoting for each wedding.

Many factors go on behind the scenes with wedding florals before your special day! so much love goes into your blooms, and all of these things come into play:
Consults, email responses and messaging, quotes, research and inspiration gathering, recipes/stem counts, sourcing and ordering
Driving to multiple suppliers to get florals and supplies
Unpacking flowers, trimming, hydrating, strip/remove foliage, de-thorn, placing in buckets with fresh water
Keeping flowers alive, allowing roses to open up, changing water when needed, creating actual arrangements and bouquets, ensuring final product is stored properly and kept fresh until the wedding day

Factors like time of the year, importing/freight restrictions and constant increases, even 'trendy' flower types and colours can be more pricey
