Carley & Clay, bride and groom, are both world travelers, wilderness adventures and educators. Not only was Carley looking for vibrant and bold colours for her bridal flowers and reception floral design, – she needed a bridal bouquet that could with stand a helicopter ride and mountain hike for her wedding vows atop Flatiron Mountain near Hope BC.

Sunflowers were the perfect fit as they were reaching their peak in our fields at the time of the mountain top ceremony and wedding reception in early August. The bridal bouquets consisted of blue bachelor buttons, small yellow sunflowers, orange dahlias, echinacia and sedum. The groomsmen wore a simple boutonniere of hemlock twig and budding pinecones and special feathers. The day after the intimate mountain top ceremony friends and family gathered to celebrate at the bride’s parents home in Webster’s Corners, Maple Ridge. Large sunflowers and burgundy amaranth adorned the outdoor celebration on the small farm. Edible snapdragon and borage petals garnished the lovely white buttercream cake.
We feel very privileged to be able to provide our local, organically grown flowers for this happy couples special day.
