INCORPORATING fresh florals

WRITTEN BY ISABELLE NOVAK  *  PHOTOS BY RITA STEENSSENS

Rook and Rose’s luxurious floral boutique is a breath of fresh spring air. And what says spring better than flowers? Located in Victoria, BC, this flower shop has expanded beyond unexpected arrangements and exotic blooms. They now offer a range of home decor as well as styling services and wedding consultations. 

Get inspired by fresh florals and greenery for a chic, rustic spring wedding. Spring is the perfect time to experiment with elements of nature and an uplifting color palette. Rook and Rose owner Erica Smolders shares her floral and design expertise with REstyleSOURCE through a recent wedding photo shoot. 

“We just wanted something that reflected the surroundings, shot in an abandoned greenhouse, with the natural architecture, wood beams and gravel floor. It was really undone,” Smolders says. 

Although this whimsical method of decor appears haphazard, it takes a careful eye to put the “undone” look together. 

“I find it’s more complicated to do undone styles. Things need to be perfectly asymmetrical if you work with garden flowers and field flowers; great texture and whimsical shapes that you can play with a little bit more,” Smolders says. 

Another way to incorporate a breezy spring atmosphere is through a strategic color palette. Smolders used peach, apricot, and cream tones for the shoot, along with pillar candles stacked on wooden planks. Fall in love with the effortless look of nature and beauty of spring for your wedding.

TIP

WE LOVE THE LOOK OF FRESH, BRIGHT GREENS PAIRED WITH VINTAGE TOUCHES. SEARCH FOR ANTIQUE PLATES, SILVERWARE, AND CAKE STANDS TO INCORPORATE ON YOUR TABLE. THIS GIVES AN AUTHENTIC AND SWEET LOOK TO YOUR FLORALS AND DELICATE COLORS.
