Jess + John : High School Sweethearts

Maggie McTaggart (Friend) Thurlow, ON
Jessica and John were highschool sweethearts, which is where I first met them both! I have known them for quite a few years now, and when Jess asked me to play a very important role in their wedding and create her wedding florals, I was ecstatic! Jess and I quickly sat down and discussed her venue, the dress, her bridesmaids, and of course, the BLOOMS! Her wedding colors were blush, mint, and gold. So pretty and feminine! We picked some great flowers to compliment her flirty, feminine color palette. Dahlias, seeded eucalyptus, spray roses, seedum, astilbe, and cosmos were the perfect pairing. I decided to add a pop of color in the bridesmaids bouquets--as well as the bride's--so they would ... really stand out against the soft blush dresses. The dark merlot dahlias were a perfect fit for their early Fall boho-chic wedding. Even with all of the rain on their September 12th wedding date, the flowers looked beautiful! Jessica, John, and their bridal party looked incredible. The photos say it all! Congratulations you two! Show more

White Dahlia Flower ( 75 stems )

After a slight mix up these dahlias showed up the night before the wedding and hardly any of them were open. I also was not expecting them to be so small.

These posy pink spray roses were beautiful! They were easy to work with and to boot, they were very fragrant. They were perfect.

The dusty miller showed up on time and was perfect except it became very wilted while working with it and unfortunately most of it was not used.

This seeded eucalyptus was GORGEOUS. It was a dream to work with and was very hearty. I would certainly purchase again.
