I’ve been a busy little florist bee so far in 2015 and I thought it was time to share what’s been going on at Presh lately.
I started off the year with some great photo shoots, the first was for a floral tutorial series shot by Grace & Gold Studios featured on Satin & Snow. We broke down the steps to make a hand-tied bouquet, a table arrangement using a flower frog, and a boutonniere. Stay tuned for our tutorial on how to make a flower crown.
I also worked on two photo shoots with Laura Kelly Photography and Makin’It Lovely. The first one is being kept under wraps until it is published, but the second you can view on Laura Kelly’s blog here (and I’ve included a couple of pictures below!). For the second shoot I made a floral chandelier and had to install it standing on a table that was shifting in the snow, in socked feet and without gloves. It wasn’t the easiest task but I think the end result was worth it.
Last month Presh exhibited at our first wedding show, Tie the Knot, a boutique show at the Museum of Nature. Leading up to the show we had three of our floral designs featured on CTV Ottawa Morning Live which was pretty exciting. At the show, I designed florals not just for our booth but for Satin & Snow and J S Creations Cake Emporium as well. I’m still waiting on pro photos of our booth, but below is a look at what we put together for Satin & Snow. Presh also designed the florals for a Satin & Snow tablescape at Mastermind Events’ annual open house (pics to come)!
We had our wedding published on one of my favourite blogs, A Practical Wedding. And our very first styled shoot ever was published on Burnett’s Boards! My friend Kitty got glammed up and modeled a vintage Dior dress for The Love Studio in this Parisian inspired editorial that I’m so proud of.
Finally, we had our first wedding of 2015, the sweetest little elopement on the Rideau Canal and I just can’t wait to share pictures soon. Up next, we’ll be exhibiting at Love, Handmade an indie wedding show on April 4th doing a joint display with the fabulous Makin’ it Lovely. All in all I’ve been keeping pretty busy and loving every minute of it!
