Flower Dogs brings to mind only one, Preston Bailey....

What do you think, would the great Preston Bailey approve of Phoebe?

 

 

 

Tamara (with a bad hair day) and the Great One....Preston Bailey, at Brides on Bloor in 06. It was an honour and a pleasure to have met and chatted with Preston, he is truly a gentleman and had only the sweetest compliments towards our work, the detail and finishings inclusive.

Phoebe!


A few shots of a wedding that we did in November with Cynthia Martyn Events at The Boulevard Club in Luscious Corals. The groom is a vetrenarian, fittingly we had the opportunity to create a flower dog. Not any dog, I might add, but a replica of the couples beloved shnauzer, Pheobe. Since there aren't many black flowers to draw from, we decorated her in a celebratory wedding white with all seasonal flat mums.

 Without further adue, we present you Phoebe...

Wedluxe, Iconic Inspiration

Our first editorial in Wedluxe is another project that we are over the moon ecstatic to be a part of, with a celebratory champagne kudos to Cindy Johnson of Platinum Event Group,. We were working simultaneously on "the Big Give" organized by photographer, Joee Wong , www.jwphotography.ca , when Cindy invited us to join her in creating the below Iconic inspiration photo shoot, in theme and style of the ever classic Ralph Lauren. It was both an honour and a effervescent challenge, to pay tribute and respect the style of the great Ralph Lauren. We drew on our commonalities, the love of all things fashion and the islands. The Lauren home in Jamaica was one of our inspirations when styling the tablescape and bouquets.We loved the colour palette, a striking combination of mostly white and cobalt blue with yellow accents, as seen below The day of the shoot was so much fun and such an awesome experience that left Kevin and I wanting to style more photo shoots....., as mentioned previously there is nothing like carte blanche and working with such an elite calibur of professionals (listed below)....the artistic energy is beyond sensational...even better than chocolate and shopping!

Sadly and notably a hiccup.....Kevins name was left out as Fuscia Designs Partner Principal Creative Director, so do know that he was very much present , a part of the planning, design and installation of the set up. The wavy calla lily bouquets wrapped with rope, set atop of the etched silver vases...all him!

Thank you to our very talented colleagues, wedding professionals and friends for making this a reality!
