AIMÉ BLANCHETTE & SCOTT HO­GAN

Weddingbells (Toronto) - - Real Weddings -

FROM AIMÉ: As a florist, I’ve seen trendy pal­ettes, clas­sic pal­ettes and bright pal­ettes. But I had yet to do a wed­ding that mixed both bright and moody. We wanted our palette to ooze fun, and I re­ally feel we achieved that, with mus­tard yel­low, emer­ald green, dusty rose, soft pink and other jewel tones. Scott is a car­pen­ter with his own side busi­ness, so he made the arch and I sourced the mus­tard yel­low vel­vet. Of course, the flow­ers were very im­por­tant, so I spent many nights try­ing to de­cide what blooms to pick for the wed­ding. I wanted some­thing bright and fun, but with enough deep­ness to mute and pop cer­tain blooms. I left the de­sign of the arch en­tirely up to Ali, the owner of Stôk Flo­ral and De­sign, and it turned out in­cred­i­ble. It was a tough de­ci­sion to do a first look. Ini­tially it felt like we were tak­ing some­thing away from the guests by hav­ing this mo­ment just to our­selves, but we wouldn’t change the way we did it: it was Scott, my­self, the pho­tog­ra­pher and a rab­bit (!), sur­rounded by trees. Do­ing the first look filled the rest of the day with ease and ex­cite­ment. Dur­ing the cock­tail hour it was so much fun see­ing friends and fam­ily spread across the town hall green and pavilion. Scott had built lots of games for ev­ery­one to play and see­ing all of his hard work come to fruition was great. Through­out the evening, Scott and I would take lit­tle mo­ments to stand back and watch ev­ery­thing. We’ll re­mem­ber those mo­ments for­ever.
