From the team
From Britt: The table top was curated to offer a nod to the spring season while keeping the French garden wedding feel throughout the design. Mixing floral textures, fresh fruits and veggies, it also featured little ceramic birds to evoke the spring season and its lively energy. Britt says, “I would recommend to never be afraid of colour or patterns. Although it can feel scary to get out of your comfort zone, that exact thing you are uncomfortable could be just the ingredient to take the design to the next level”
Kate from Kate Asire Flowers brought all the textures and colors together in her creations. Striving for a dreamy yet, colourful palette of pinks, our focus was to use more dainty, feminine blooms like Sweet pea, Hellebore and, garden roses. Featuring three dresses from Delana Muse and Anne Barge, I absolutely loved all three and wanted to feature them all. They all had a wonderful flow to them and romance.
With impending rain on the horizon we made the decision to set up both inside and out to show how a possible rain back up could look like. I’ll admit, I love both but think the indoor set up shows off the intimacy of the dining experience.
