Sophisticated Outdoor Wedding - Galiano Island, Bodega Ridge BC, Canada - Award Winning Wedding

Wednesday, 18 September 2019

Where do we start? This wonderful couple had an amazing vision for their wedding and pulled out all the stops for a stunning and unforgettable day located on Galiano Island, Bodega Ridge, BC, Canada! This incredible day caught the eye of many others and won Best Canadian West Wedding at the 2018 Wedding Bells Awards, and took home a finalist position via Vancouver Island Weddings Awards - Best Bridal Bouquet 2018.  Our team traveled to Galiano the day prior to set up our 'traveling floral studio',  slowly taking over one of our Airbnb rentals, bringing all our gear and our best game faces on to provide this couple with one memorable day.  What a blast!

The bridal bouquet has so many amazing elements in it including: alabaster garden roses, juliet garden roses, blue delphinium, lisianthus, spray roses, scabiosa, sweet peas, spray roses, and eucalyptus. We were lucky enough to get our hands on locally grown items right here on Vancouver Island.  

The gorgeous colour palette continues in the boutonnieres with spray roses, hypericum and eucalyptus and tied in beautifully with the grooms tie choice. 

Wild smilax, eucalyptus and other locally foraged greens form the base of this stunning ceremony arch perched on top of Bodega Ridges ceremony location with a most stunning view of the ocean and surrounding islands.  Truly a west coast vibe.
Flowers include blue delphinium, spray roses, and juliet garden roses. 

The special feature of this arch are the small white spray roses throughout adding that fantastic texture. They are a special spray rose grown locally on the island by Lorna at Ninebark Farm. They only bloom a couple weeks of the year, so timing was just all too perfect to use them in this arch. We love sourcing locally when possible and supporting small businesses in our community.  Truly making our displays just that much more amazing.

No one was forgotten on this special day! The greenery collar looks adorable on the couple's furry friend. Bud vases and lanterns were cascading from reception to ceremony area.  No detail was left to the way side.


Emerald green bud vases provided by Trend Decor added so much depth to the lounge displays, just can't get enough.  

Long table greenery and lounge areas filled the reception tents provided by The Wise Co. for an intimate evening amongst friends and family.
The hanging installation on this dance floor truly made for an epic display! Wild smilax, locally sourced greens and lights hang overhead creating a truly magical space. 

What better way to finish off all the celebrations than this shared special moment for the bride and groom. Cheers to these two lovelies!
