7/17/11 - Shari & Trent

Today it rained & rained & rained! But despite the rain & how soaking wet we got setting up the flowers, I still had a lot of fun. I was told the rain didn't dampen the mood at the ceremony either. Which doesn't surprise me knowing the bride & her family. Such a fun group! I can't wait to see the professional pictures from Evantide Photography to see all of Lairmont Manor's white umbrellas being used during the ceremony. I'm sure it made for some sweet pictures!

Congratulations Shari & Trent! Thank you so much for choosing me as your florist & allowing me to design the flowers for yet another Heeringa wedding!!

Bride's bouquet with mini gerber daisies, garden spray roses, freesia, billy balls, bouvardia, sage, scented geranium & succulents. The stems were wrapped in ivory double face satin ribbon & rhinestone trimming.

The reception under the tents at Lairmont Manor had both tall & low centerpieces. Two beautiful "floral chandeliers" filled with greenery & snapdragons.

The sweetheart table which will have the addition of the bride's bouquet at the reception in the center.

The low centerpieces were in groupings of jars, milk glasses & bottles. These set on records as the Groom business in Vancouver, B.C. is called Lotusland Electronics and Music. He sells vintage turntables, receivers, amps, records, musical instruments & other items too. So the records are a perfect personal touch!

The ceremony in the courtyard by the fountain had a cluster of flowers on the chairs down the center aisle & a cluster of gerber daisies along the back row of chairs. The flowers added much needed pop of color on cloudy rainy day. Two Ginkgo trees were at the of my favorite trees! Shari used some ginkgo leaf details on some of the decor at the reception to tie everything together.
