Last spring I had the privilege of working with Lori from Crystal Orchid Weddings and Events to create a glamorous multicultural wedding. The rich bright colors of the wedding were in abundance! …. and the bright coloured Dendrobium orchids were a highlight.


The ceremony, held at the College Heights Seventh Day Adventist Church in Lacombe was beautiful. The bride’s father generously built a stunning mandap, and then we added the florals! Eighty feet of strung blue dendrobium orchid garland! WOW! The look was amazing!



We continued the exotic feel throughout the church with more orchids placed as aisle markers.


The bridal party bouquets were a mass of blue dendrobium accented by white calla lilies and stephanotis. I loved the deep blue or the orchids packed so tightly together. The contrast with the bridesmaid’s pink saris was beautiful!





And then there was the reception…. held at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer, the simple black and white table linens were accented with brightly lit centrepieces. Two styles of table allowed for two styles of centrepiece. Bright fuchsia dendrobium orchids filled a round fishbowl with an accent of blue flat wire on the rectangular tables. The round tables had tall pilsner vases filled with blue dendrobium and created a variance of height in the room.

I have to share these photos! This whole wedding was beyond beautiful! Kayla and Jon were amazing to work with, the weather was sunny and warm and the decor was perfect! This wedding held in beautiful Radium Hot Springs, BC incorporated both coral and the softest tones of pink which incorporated both glamorous and rustic elements. ….and in my opinion, the flowers were just the icing on the cake!

The wedding party carried hand-tied bouquets of pale pink hydrangea, coral garden roses, the palest of peach spray roses and pink lisianthus with a rustic wrap of twine and lace.


The reception was stunning! Kayla’s vision was perfect, the centrepieces created in grey stone urns placed atop hand cut tree cookies allowed the florals to shine. They were made with ivory and coral garden roses tucked amongst pale pink hydrangea with sparkling crystals providing just a little shine.
