Cindy & Adrian
October 13, 2016
This was our first introduction into Famee Furlane, which we have now dubbed a hidden gem. Completely unassuming and tucked away in a residential street, Erin and I arrived to set up Cindy & Adrian's wedding both thinking we might be at the wrong place. Doors were locked and no one was answering our multiple knocks of desperation, until we went to triple check all of our notes to confirm that this was the place, someone greeted us and let us in. After explaining that we were the flower girls there to set up, we were led up stairs. Through the doors, up a flight and around the corner we found ourselves in a ballroom of the grandest proportions! 20+ ft ceilings with widows that spanned either side from top to bottom and long flowing rose curtains, how did that fit in the building we pulled up to 10 minutes ago! - It was perfect. The woman who was showing us around was saying how they were hoping to renovate and get rid of the 'dusty pink' curtains but Erin & I (both super partial to anything dusty rose) thought why??! Cindy's vision to incorporate the dark burgundy and pinks couldn't have complimented the venue more, it showcased the awesomness that is Famee Furlane. Which couldn't have made us any happier.
Typically we meet our couples 1-2 times during the planning process and chat over e-mail and phone throughout the months prior. You get to know them on a certain level; how they met, how they see themselves as a couple and what they want their loves ones to take back from their wedding. We see how they interact and the excitement, nervousness and happiness that comes along with planning a wedding. BUT one of the best parts, is the behind the scenes. When we go to set up, a lot of the decor details have already been put in place, many this includes the welcoming table where many couple share pictures of themselves when they were children, when they first met - pretty much a Coles Notes version of their lives from the start to present in pictures. It is honestly the cutest; baby pictures, the awkward high school years, first dates! Cindy and Adrian went next level cuteness and had fun fact cards about themselves on each table. It just make you fall in love with the fact you get to do flowers for your couple even more.
We just recently received a thank you card in the mail (No. 1 underrated thing in the world, just behind flowers in the bathroom) which made us want to share this perfect October wedding with you. Her dress is stunning, his tux is sharp as can be and Simply Rose Photography captured it all perfectly. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wedding, it was such a pleasure to work with you both.
Ps. That colour pallet is now officially referred to as the Cindy G pallet ;)
