We are so excited to finally show you these pictures!  What a blast it was designing and decorating for this wedding.  It was beautifully bohemian down to the last detail.  We submitted this wedding to the Vancouver Island Wedding Ring awards and won Wedding Planner of the year for 2015!  Woohoo!


A little run-down on the bride and groom: Teresa was living in Abu Dhabi while her fiancé, Engel, was living in Bali.  They both share a passion for yoga, vegan food (all of the food at their wedding was vegan) and the West Coast of Canada.  It was a lot of fun working with this earthy couple, even if we did plan the wedding from across the globe!  They chose Pacific Shores Resort & Spa for their wedding venue and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

Whew!  Now that the rush of wedding season is over, we would love to show you some of the things we have been working on.  Here’s a wedding from last summer – it’s just too good to skip over.  One of our most favourite photographers to work with, Erin Wallis, was wed on September 20, 2014 to her longtime love, Bryce.  They had an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends at the Dolphins Resort in Campbell River.  And, the best part – they hired a helicopter so that they could have photos taken on a mountain overlooking the Sutil channel, Reid, Cortes, Quadra and Vancouver Island.  Amazing!

Actually, on second thought, the best part was that she hired us to do her flowers!  A true honour, Erin – thank you!

For the next couple weeks we will be highlighting some of our favourite Vancouver Island wedding venues.  And what better place to start than the truly exceptional Tigh-na-mara Seaside Spa Resort.

It is rustic elegance at it’s finest.  If you are looking for a complete Island Wedding experience, you need not look further.

The Tigh-na-mara Resort boasts enchanting forests with arbutus trees and log bungalows.  And nestled among the woods, the Grotto Spa; a perfect way to kick off your wedding weekend.

At Petal & Kettle, we want to see your wedding theme and vision come to life.  We can provide charmingly rustic details like vintage table numbers, romantic chandeliers and fabric ceilings and walls.  And perhaps a sea of coral, peach and cream blooms.  Whatever your vision, we will help you make it a reality.


We can not forget to mention the amazing team of professionals at Tigh-na-mara that truly want to make sure you and your guests get the most out of your Island Wedding experience.

What better way to ring in the New Year than with a cocktail wedding at the stunning Tigh-na-mara Seaside Resort in Parksville, BC. This event was filled to the brim with style, class, and hours upon hours of dancing…  the best combination!


We received this sweet testimonial from the beautiful bride, and just had to share!

“Karen was a pleasure to work with; she went above and beyond with every detail. My husband and I were delighted when we walked into the ceremony and the reception, every detail of the floral and décor was exactly how we had envisioned it.” – Jessica Schaper

*totally blushing*


We also had the great privilege of working again with one of our favourite vendors, Coastal Cake Company.  Aren’t these cupcakes to die for?


(Shout out to Cindy Mash of Sozo Photography for taking these stunning photos – thank you!)

Happy almost March!

Seeing that it’s just about time to say goodbye to the Winter blues (hip hip hooray!), we decided to feature a very special blue & white wedding to ease your transition into Spring.  Take a look at this beauty:



Blue skies, beautiful location (The Beach Club), luscious flowers (yours truly), stunning photography (Jennifer Jayde) = just what the doctor ordered.

Modern & Rustic mix

What a fun wedding this was!

We were totally up for the challenge when this beautiful bride approached us with the idea of having a pink & silver wedding at the West Coast style Tigh-na-mara Resort.  And we just love the end results!  This mix of modern & rustic ended up being the perfect combination to showcase the personalities of this wonderful couple.

And who better to capture the mood than Greg Howard Photography.  (Greg you are a delight to work with!)


(Make sure to check out this beautiful resort if you are looking into venues for your wedding.  The staff is amazing, it’s right on the water, the food is delish, and the atmosphere is stunning.  We highly recommend it!)


Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box when planning your wedding.  It’s your special day – so it should reflect your unique style.

If you are finding it difficult to narrow down a specific theme or style, have no fear – we can help!  Send us an email or give us a call to schedule a consultation with our wedding designer.


There’s nothing like a classic white wedding.

We were absolutely thrilled when we were asked to design the decor and flowers for this stunning event.  It truly felt like we were in the middle of a storybook  romance.  And apparently we weren’t the only ones that thought so…  Style Me Pretty (one of the leading bridal blogs on the web) wanted to get in on the action too.  {Click here} for the full post & even more gorgeous photos.

(BTW: thanks Erin Wallis Photography!  You rock.)
