Erin and Stephen.

Balls Falls. A Conservation area just outside Niagara. Beautiful, right?

A sweet and simple (teeny tiny!) Church ceremony, and dinner in a lovely old barn. 

Simple budvases with candles graced the long harvest tables, filled with blooms in shades of peach, pink and coral.

And, I think it was all just perfectly sweet.

How lovely are these photos from Ben Kane Photography?


Special thanks to Caryn of As You Wish, it was so great working with you!

And, to Erin + Stephen: Congratulations! xo

Coral is pretty popular over here at the BB, so when we are asked to do a pretty coral and pink wedding at Miller Lash House under a tent? Yes please!

It was another wedding we created the following year at the same Venue that got Claudia's attention. She knew then she wanted a coral and pink wedding filled with garden blooms, and for us to help her create it!

We met with her, and she was so excited about flowers and booked us on the spot. It was love at first sight on both ends :)

Claudia wanted a garden party wedding on the lovely grounds of Miller Lash U of T with Coral being the all-star colour, and of course, peonies had to be the starting point. 

Claudia's florals spilled from gold footed compotes, place settings were beautiful gold chargers, and were surrounded by gold votive candles.

We draped loose foliages over ML's white hanging chandeliers, bringing the outside garden inside.

C & A's head table had a garland of foliages spilling over the edges, with coral and pink blooms interspersed. It was pretty magical, if I do say so myself!

Huge thanks to my BB team, and to Jan of Willow Rose who kept everything on track with the planning of the wedding! 

Take a peek at these lovely images from the talented Magnolia Studios, aren't they just magical?

C+A, congratulations and thank you for being so lovely to work with! xo

Sharing a few lovely captures on this cold winter January day, from a much warmer time~ a pretty pastel wedding last summer.

Kayla was such a fun bride to work with, and I loved the simplicity of her brunch wedding at Archeo.

Simple budvases with a few blooms of flowers, thoughtfully placed in collected vintage milk glass bottles by the bride and loose foliages layed down on the lovely restaurant wood tables of Archeo.

Simple. Sweet.Pretty.

This year I decided to invest in something wonderful.

I signed up for a Floral Wellness Retreat with the incredible Kate Holt of Flowerwild and her crew, photgraphed by Jose Villa

On a ranch.

With yoga. Wine. Flowers. California.

And, I am so, so, SO glad I invested in myself and my business with this amazing journey.

I met so many wonderful + crazy talented flower friends, who I hope will be present in my life from now on.

Take a look at the amazing captures from my weekend in San Inez this ( well, last!)  February.

Models: Newmark Models

Hair and Makeup: Amy Clarke

I miss this time so much, and I can't wait to see all of my flower friends again sometime soon!

Huge thank you to Kate and her team for a wonderful time in sunny Cali, the place I feel I was born to be. 

Your encouragement and validation of Blush and Bloom mean so much! xo

Here's one from April of this year.

I was so happy when Lynzie Kent of Love by Lynzie booked us to work with her adorable clients Allison + Curtis.

Lynzie always has such fun and outgoing clients who really trust her to bring something edgy and different to their event.

It is so refreshing for me to work with event planners and stylists who are not afraid to bring something new to the table, thanks Lynz!

For this one, Lynzie created custom watercolour floral runners in corals and pinks for the tables, and glitter vessels of all assorted sizes and shape.

A+C wed at the Design Exchange, on Bay Street.

The palette was all about pink and coral, with LOTS of gold ::no exceptions!

The Ceremony was a pillar candle-lined aisle, with gold chairs and a custom backdrop of bulb string lights by the LBL team.

We created two large florals to flank the Altar area with bright pinks and corals.

The room was lit with candle light glow.

Truth? Allison's bouquet is still one of my all time faves!

Here are some of the lovely captures of this coral+pink magic from this April, captured by the talented Michelle Peek:



Congratulations to both of you, and I am so grateful we had the chance to work together! It was our pleasure.
