THORN floral opened up June 1, 2017. I’d been meaning to write a blog reflecting on the last two years – the ups, downs, learning curves & growth of THORN. And here we are – A month overdue and blogging on a Saturday night. Maybe that gives you an indication on how things are going… Busy, as heck!?
Leading up to THORN floral’s 2nd anniversary, I had the pleasure of hanging with the lovely & talented photographer, Emily Suzanne Harris.
White + green – so clean, classic + bridal! Photographed by Frances Beatty Photography This city wedding was held at 99 Sudbury – a one of a kind loft space in the heart of Queen Street West.
HOLY… Is this bride’s style game strong or what?! Let me start off by saying, there was a pool + private cabanas at this wedding! Held at Toronto Event Centre (Beach Paris) patio deck, Dalia + Corey shared their vows at sunset on warm summers night. Starry-eyed from love and the chic paradise oasis of the space – you hardly feel like you’re in downtown Toronto. Shot by the ever-so talented + local Angie Choi (Eyekahfoto).
THORN was delighted to build florals for the first-ever wedding (what,what?!) at this unique venue! Hold on tight, this is going to be a long blog!
I’m a west-end Toronto gal – so I don’t visit the east side all that often. I know, I know – alllllll the way across the city!? It’s a sad excuse, I am aware! Especially when there’s so many beautiful gems on the other side – like Archeo.
Rock n roll, baby!! From an early age, I was always certain of two things – I really loved loud tunes and fun, off beat florals! So this shoot was as sweet as my favourite song – Totally chimed into my deep-rooted love of music, especially if it’s got a little edge.
A quaint, funky place setting for a backyard session in The Junction neighbourhood. Built in collaboration with lovely, talented Michelle – founder of Magnolia Studios.
Held at Mint Room Studios last month – interior designer Christine Dovey + stylist/art dealer Alessandra Salituri lead an interactive workshop focusing on the art of home styling. Feminine + fluffy florals handmade by THORN.
Toronto based photographer, Danica Oliva hand-selected an amazing team of female entrepreneurs for a bridal session. So naturally, when she asked THORN to join the crew – I was grinning from ear to ear!

Couples can plan their heart out when it comes to their wedding day. Down to every 15 minute interval – but you know what?! Life is unpredictable as heck! Much like who we fall in love with. You just gotta roll with it – And for this couple, that’s exactly what they did! (Spoiler alert: the groom was injured on their wedding day)
On February 17, 2018 – Steph + Conor weren’t going to let a little accident stand in the way of proclaiming their love for one another. A few weeks shy of their wedding date, the groom became injured while playing basketball – which resulted in a boot-like cast, crutches and at times, even a wheel chair. Shot by talented Tamara Lockwood, Steph + Conor’s small, intimate wedding had a big, adorable story!

As a wedding florist, you get the chance to build the magical day so many little girls and boys dreamt about… Their wedding day!
If you’re like me – you’ve had the lucky opportunity of getting picked as wedding florist + bridesmaid on the same wedding. Not once, but twice has this happened in my career. It’s amazing, stressful and so so so heartwarming! But since, we’re just a few days shy of an anniversary – I’ll chat about my oldest gal pal’s wedding day at Hart House (October 2017).
Meet the Mr & Mrs! Aren’t they so adorably in love?! Talk about a match made in heaven!
