A February Lavender Wedding - in Thunder Bay.

Thunder Bay is blessed with lots of sunshine, and crisp,cold days in February. while some Brides opt for Destination Weddings  on a Caribbean beach, some brave the cold in Northwestern Ontario. How cold is cold? -37 with the Windchill, gasp...! This Wedding will take place at This Old Barn. 

Tying the knot in the dead of Winter poses a weather challenge for Flowers - if you use fresh flowers, and it's minus 30, they will freeze, and if white flowers were used, they will turn a dismal shade of brown. This Bride knew she wanted Lavender in all the bouquets, here at #TheCamellia we have farm Lavender grown on Vancouver Island. 

Boutonierres for the Boys, #Lavender with dogwood blossom, tied with jute. 

Lavender with Freesia for the Groom. 

Lavender bouquets for the Bridesmaids framed by blue twigs, and faux grasses. 

The Bride's bouquet with Lavender and foam Roses, with faux purple blossoms, tied with jute twine. The Bride wanted the look and feel of a bundle of  just gathered Wildflowers. 

A wee hairpiece for a 3 year old. 

Corsages for Mums and Grandmothers, again all made with realistic looking faux blooms. 

Thinking of having Lavender Bouquets for your Wedding?  Lavender smells wonderful and as an added bonus, helps you to stay calm and collected on your big Day!

Ceremony Wreaths look lovely, with faux Hydrangeas, lilacs, and white tulips. You can purchase this Spring wreath at the Camellia.
