Who – Larissa & Richie

Where – Family property in Maple Ridge

When – August, 2013

From the moment Larissa emailed me, i knew this was the one wedding i HAD TO DO!! Larissa works as a Colour Designer at Arc’teryx , so the vision board she present me at our first meeting was AMAZING!! I loved all her details; the pop of teal against the rust / orange tones,  her idea to incorporate a Love Lock in her designs, and all the amazing DIY pieces her family had planned for their acreage in Maple Ridge.

“Larissa did an excellent job on my Wedding Flowers. From the initial consultation with her I could tell she is really passionate about the work she does, and was willing to work within my budget. I gave her free reign on the flowers, but let her know my colour scheme – and I was in awe with the results. She put together a wonderful I would highly recommend Larissa, she was a pleasure to work with!combination of Calla Lilies and Succulents, Spray Roses and completed them with some of my personal touches. The Bouquets were beautiful! “



After their ceremony in Pitt Meadows, their Photographer Will Pursell took them out for their formal photos in the rural areas around Maple Ridge

Afterward they made their way back to Larissa’s families average, where her parents have been working forever to prepare the property for the wedding ; the attention to the details is evident in every single corner!!! Her mother ( even tried her hands at some floral designing and photography ,  I can easily say she did a FABULOUS job
