I’m so excited to share this stylish wild flower infused summer wedding. The truth is, we are still swooning over the images from NHL Player Lawson Crouse and his beautiful bride, Claire Stewarts’ stunning wedding at Harding Waterfront Estate.
Claire, a model/stylist and Lawson, a professional hockey player for the Arizona Coyotes, crossed paths throughout his hockey career, but it was after Lawson reached out on instagram, (usually replying to Claires cooking posts), and a conversation over a cheesecake that sealed the deal, and ultimately lead to a dinner date. “When you know you know, and after our first date we both told our friends that “he/she is the one”, recalls Claire. During a memorable summer trip to France, on one knee and in front of the Eiffle, Lawson proposed. The couple celebrated their new engagement for the following weeks on the French Riviera.
We loved working with Claire on the design for her wedding. Her love for personal styling, interior design and her modelling career, brought to the table fresh ideas and a keen eye for style. Modern elements breathed sophistication a chic-ness to the look, while wild flowers and artistic stationery, brought an ‘un-done’, yet fashionable feel to the table. My favourite floral feature to design was the oversized and very dramatic floral urn created which created a visual focal point in the reception tent and towered over the circular wood bar. It was a pleasure to work with wedding planner Ashley Pigott on this one and as expected, the day was executed to perfection. Thank you Claire and Lawson for trusting us with your flowers and decor design. It was such a pleasure working with you.
Thank you to our talented friends at 5ive 15ifteen for sharing their incredible captures of the day. For a full list of vendors, see bottom of post.
I always enjoy receiving feedback from our clients. I asked Claire what her thoughts were on working with our team, but wow, such sweet and thoughtful response. “I will start by saying how much fun we had with the process of working with you and your team. It is not enough to say that you exceeded our expectations, because everywhere our heads turned on the wedding day was lightyears beyond that!!! The aisle was breathtaking… but when when we walked into the tent, we were absolutely speechless. I remember being blown away by your posts and past event images when I was first looking at wedding vendors. It was very clear to me that if I wanted floral magic, that you are the best of the best!! I had such high expectations from the photos alone, but after meeting with you and your team in the studio, it really solidified that you guys are all that, and so much more. I loved coming in and seeing the table mock ups, and sample arrangements brought to life. The process was so creative, and welcoming, and just fun to experience! I felt like my wants, and over all vision was taken by you and amped up beyond anything I could have imagined. Your personalities and passion for what you do makes all the difference in not only the process, but the end result. I don’t have the words for how grateful we are for the wildflower heaven you curated for us at Harding. The pleasure was all ours, and I will be looking for any excuse to work with you again.”
