Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 8, 2017

Florals have really made a surge in the wedding industry lately. It’s no wonder with these floral artists using their creativity and unique blooms to create stunning masterpieces. They photograph beautifully and are a great way to really customize your special day.

We love how natural and organic bouquets are on trend right now. We are seeing a lot of muted jewel-tones, as well as romantic monochromatic blooms. The use of unique and creative materials are on the rise – two of our featured bouquets have artichokes in them! These add charm and a different dimension to the bouquet we have never seen before. Check out the 7 bouquet trends of 2017 in detail below.


We can’t help but swoon over the romantic look – soft, natural and simply beautiful. With plenty of greenery surrounding these delicate florals it’s no wonder this look is so popular right now.

Notice the use of artichokes in this incredibly unique bouquet. The colours are soft, yet still manage to create a bold statement. The use of greenery in this one adds a natural feel.

We are in love with the jewel-tones in this bunch of blooms. The burlap wrap and lace add a romantic feel. We can truly appreciate the thought that goes into the whole look, from the hair, to the dress to the florals – each compliments each other beautifully.

In this bouquet we have a more monochromatic look with no leafy greenery which really puts the focus on the soft florals.The different mix of soft blooms creates a lovely dimension and a romantic feel.

Make It Pop

Next up we have more gorgeous jewel-tones. We love the use of a similar colour palate to tie everything together, but different enough to make the blooms pop from one another. Place some soft greenery throughout and we have another gorgeous trend.

Mix It Up

For a truly unique look, this bouquet has everything from calla lilies, to succulents to artichokes! We completely appreciate the creativity behind this one. The tones are perfection and the trailing greenery is everything!

Another on-trend look is this moody, romantic bouquet. We have some bold blooms completely surrounded by cascading greenery. This is a natural, organic look at it’s finest.

Indie Elopement in Alberta’s BadlandsStyled Wedding Shoot in Drumheller

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 19, 2016

What is the formula for a perfect shoot? We get asked this question a lot! The ‘Indie Elopement in Alberta’s Badlands’ shoot checked all the major points; distinctiveness, high quality photography and details. Even with all that, the location is what really blew us away. Local wedding vendors drove across the endless golden prairies into the hills and rock formations, Alberta’s badlands, for the perfect setting. 

Knowing that the very ground this was shot on is filled with ancient bones of dinosaurs who once ruled the land will keep you in wonderment.


I’d Stand In A Lake For YouStyled Shoot in Canmore, Alberta

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on July 25, 2015

Being in Alberta gives us the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains as the perfect backdrop. Thanks to this inspiration shoot by Lucier Photography, we get to envision what engagement or wedding photos in Canmore would look like. Rather than shooting models, Danielle with Lucier Photography chose a real-life couple she photographed in 2014 to capture a more genuine connection. Victoria’s dazzling gown was complimented by bold floral arrangements by Audrey’s Flowers. Leigh surely rose to the occasion to give us incredible shots in the lake while carrying his breathtaking wife.


The Oasis Centre’s Multi-Tiered Experience is the Height of EleganceBlush's Venue of the Year 2014

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on September 9, 2014

Looking to take centre stage on your wedding day? You can, and you can invite up to 450 guests to watch the magic happen. Outfitted with fine, subtle finishings, The Oasis Centre has become the destination for couples in the know. The superior structure, with both exterior and interior benefits, is Blush’s Venue of the Year for those of you looking to celebrate with grace.

Beginning with the Grand Hall, the indoor view boasts 24ft. ceilings adorned with German-made stunning rose quartz chandeliers imported especially for the venue. “We have discovered a way to project light on them from the balcony that has them taking on whatever color we choose- whether it be teal, pink or lavender, and we now offer that as a décor option to clients. It’s amazing how it helps pull the color scheme of the room together,” explains Anne McLennan, Wedding Director for the Oasis Centre. The Amphitheatre-shaped Hall allows for theatre-style seating for those of you who’d like to perform your vows onsite, that later transforms seamlessly into a banquet-space. “That is one of the things we have become known for– one stop shopping with your ceremony and reception at the same location. We intentionally only host one wedding per day, which allows for more privacy, relaxed atmosphere and ability to customize things, such as timeline and event flow for the day.”

An additional plus to the exclusive venue is their existing audio-visual network that includes “ceiling mounted video projectors with two 12’ x 9’ remote control retractable screens, and a full range of equipment and services. We include the audio-visual engineer in our wedding package, the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception, along with microphones, in-house speakers, background music and specialty lighting. These elements all work together in contributing to the magical ambiance that is a hallmark for our events. Our latest sought after service is the ability to provide HD cameras for recording and live webcasting to anywhere in the world, for family and friends that can’t attend in person.” For those that are attending in person, accommodating guests depends on the layout that the couple most prefers, says McLennan. “Our average wedding size is about 200, and we are able to make the room work for as few as 90, and for as many as 350 plus depending on the room design and type of catering. We did have a wedding here in the winter for over 450 with smaller lounge tables and gourmet passed appetizers; that was really an innovative refreshing set-up.”

One of the details that further sets this venue apart? The Oasis Centre is partnered with Aerial Fireworks to really make your big day outstanding. “We discovered quite by chance that our unique garden setting was zoned for fireworks when a gentleman came to us wanting to do something unique and spectacular while proposing to his bride-to-be.” Talk about tying the knot with a bang!
