Ash and Robin decided to escape the cold of Canadian winter and head to the Paradisus Punta Cana Resort last December. I had the honour of creating two similar but different faux floral bouquets for them to pack along with them to head to the tropics. Sadly, I didn’t get packed up with them too.
When their planner, Olivia from Joy Events and Co., got in touch asking if I could do some faux florals for them, I was so excited knowing that my designs would travel all the way to the Dominican. They both wanted something similar – pretty, ruffly, and romantic but with their own personal spin on it. Ash – being more edgy, had a king protea as her focal, a giant monstera leaf, and a cascading orchid. Robin – who wanted something a bit more romantic and soft, got all the ruffles with roses, ranunculus, and peonies. I added a couple of anthurium to give it that tropical flare to match Ash’s bouquet and bring them both together.
To have Susie and Will capture these designs seems almost like a once in a lifetime opportunity as they are destination photographers based in Las Vegas. The way their day was captured truly allowed me to feel transported to the tropics. Seeing the love between these two and being able to feel like a part of it is truly something special.
Celebrating these two today and celebrating love, no matter what, always.
