Karen & Dean's Wedding

The Third of June - perfect day for a wedding bloom! This past Saturday I had the special honour of bringing the floral flourish to the marriage ceremony of my friends, Karen and Dean. Through a labour of love, my team and I were able to transform their cozy East Vancouver backyard into a private mini cathedral. From the comments overheard, it sounds like the wedding party and guests thoroughly enjoyed our creations for their elegance, originality and functionality. ***

We all know weddings bring people together - not only for the celebration, but also for the extensive work that goes into pulling it off. From my end, planning and construction of the bar, wedding bower and arches (adjoined to the backyard fence as perimeter enhancements) was executed with my 'Life Of The Party' business partner, Luc Seguin. Together we planned key furniture elements that would function well and look at home in the bride and groom’s backyard. Fresh flowers were generously provided by a friend of the bride, my mother and cousin assisted with the floral arrangements, and my wonderful crew lent a helping hand with installation transport, set-up and take-down. ***

'Life of the Party', specializing in floral and events, recently developed as an offshoot of my Head Gardener landscaping design business. Whether you’re hosting a private ceremony or a public event, we're here to freshen it up with unique natural elements and designs.
