From the planner:

Nadia’s dream bouquet was comprised of a variety of florals and greenery with a special emphasis to be on the anemone as they have such a sticking centre.  While keeping the bouquet a mix of modern and luxe garden style, the eucalyptus foliage was left longer to create drama while also incorporating hand dipped metallic eucalyptus to add highlight and shimmer to the photos.  Garden roses, ranunculus, and other varieties of dahlia and tea roses were used to bring softness and contrast from the darker centres of the anemone. Nadia and AJ particularly wanted to emphasize their walk down the aisle.  By having lush garden style floral arrangements lining either side, there was sure to be a heavy floral presence from any angle. By using softer, romantic blooms like hydrangea, roses and dahlia, these arrangements were kept a bit more simplistic so that their volume did not detract for Nadia and AJ’s stunning arbour! The arbour was softened with an initial base layer of fabric again, with particular focus on the champagne dipped eucalyptus and anemone to add those modern touches and really bring out the darker wood accents.We kept the ceremony simple, allowing the couple and the stunning florals to be the main focus. Black chiavaris stood out against the lush green grass. White pillars topped by metallic vessels filled with hydrangeas, dahlias and roses and a gorgeous arbour made for the perfect backdrop for Nadia and AJ to exchange vows.The couple’s personal taste and style came through in every detail of their wedding day. From the sleek bridesmaids gowns to the tuxedos and bow ties on the groomsmen, Nadia and Aj were ready to treat their guests to an unforgettable experience with style and elegance.  Crushed champagne linen, black chiavaris and a custom dance floor embellished with the couples logo was an absolute delight to design. Dozens of warm candles, overflowing floral centerpieces, and a hanging floral installation that made the room breathtaking in the most refined & brilliant way.
