There are some couples that you just click with instantly, you know? The couples who are not only in sync with each other, but who just seemingly fall into step with you as a vendor – as though you’ve known each other forever. Mike and Deanna were ones of *those* couples, and we couldn’t have been happier to design, flower, and manage their Forest and Stream Club wedding in August 2023.

Private club weddings can be a real challenge. Most of the time, you are dealing with an historic building that wasn’t built to accommodate 100-150 guests, multiple bars, a dance floor, food service tables, a wedding ceremony, a cocktail space… the list goes on! But so often, it’s these unique spaces, with their beautiful, timeless architecture and (when you’re lucky!) mature, natural grounds, that allow for an incredible experience for the couple and their loved ones.

Flourish & Knot was lucky enough to meet Deanna and Mike early in their planning, and I remember getting off their initial consultation and crossing allllll digits that they would book with us. Warm, open, positive, and excited for their wedding day, they were exactly the sort of people that my team and I love to work with!

They decided to bring us on to create their dream, Tuscan-inspired florals, and also to design and manage their day. (You can read more about our design and management services here!) Deanna and Mike had come with a very open and flexible vision, allowing me to take their intial ideas and run. Together, we dreamed up a luxurious, warm, and romantic wedding day that was reflective of their shared Italian heritage. Working with a palette of earthy summer sunset tones accented with a deep teal, we loved designing each beautiful detail, from their stationery to florals (of course!) to place settings and linens to late-night gelato truck (!).

Mike and Deanna’s Forest and Stream Club wedding was absolutely one of our favourite weddings of the 2023 season – rich in colour, creativity, and (the best part) created for warm and kind people. We wish them happiness and love in their future together!
