TWO YEARS OF THORN

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!?

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!

FLORIST + BRIDESMAID

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!
