The wedding took place on what seemed like the coldest day of the year... so far! Moving flowers in -33 windchill is no walk in the park. The flowers were delivered to the bride at the Auberge Le Saint-Gabriel- - in the Old Port and the ceremony was being held just down the street at the Basilica. The bride envisioned herself carrying her bouquet with her on the walk to the church but I had to explain that they just would not resist the cold for a fraction of a second. All bouquets were packed tight in paper and thick plastic and then carefully placed into a box. The logistics of a winter wedding for a florist are enough to induce a migraine. The staff at the Auberge were amazing, as always. They helped wherever they could to make the transition from the truck to the hall without any freezer burn. :)

The brides bouquet (shown above) is composed of white chrysanthemums, white hydrangea, white ranunculus, white tulips and white freesia. At her request we sprinkled the flowers with a little silver glitz.

The Maid of Honor bouquet (shown below) is designed of white hydrangea, white freesia, white tulips and white alstromeria.

Aren't these baskets just the cutest?
Each flower girl carried a basket of white alstromeria, white wax flower, white Veronicas and peach hypericum berry
