Hannah and Matthew had an absolute beautiful and perfect day to celebrate their new life together! These two got married on Mother’s Day 2019 ❤ Matt is from Alberta and Hannah is from Saskatchewan – They have a strong love for all things outdoors; especially hiking 🙂 During our floral consultation, Matthew Facetimed in from AB while Hannah and I met in her kitchen to talk about all the wedding details. I wanted to bring the Alberta and Saskatchewan terrains together for their wedding. What wild flowers + grasses would they see during a hike in AB and in SK? My inspiration for their wedding flowers came from that thought. Continue reading

This past spring, I had the honour of doing the flowers for one of my cousins weddings; Danae, the lovely bride, was such a joy to work with. The vision she had for her and Dallas’ big day was very exciting, and I am so blessed to have been able to play a part in their beautiful day!
Sharelle and Dallas had an absolutely enchanting day! I was so lucky to have the opportunity of designing the stunning Gold couple’s wedding flowers for their Fall wedding on October 21st, 2017. Sharelle is such a sweet soul and I adored getting to know her more while we collaborated on her wedding flowers. I’ve been blessed with doing wedding flowers for several brides now – but Sharelle wins the prize of most relaxed bride ever! Together, we talked about her wedding flowers over the phone for a just over an hour and she let me run with her inspiration! Enchanting was to be the wedding theme; a romantic blend of modern burgundies and elegant blushes with mixed greens and a touch of sparkle to hint at a wonderful fairy Godmother. I was so thankful for both Dallas and Sharelle’s laid back and relaxed wedding style! Thank you for trusting me lady – Thank you for giving my floral design juices to flow freely! I believe you brought your graceful wedding vision to life on your special day! Continue reading
What a beautiful day! I had the honour of designing the beautiful Shaylee [now] Durston’s wedding flowers for her and Levi’s wedding in May 2017. Shaylee wanted an elegant blend of romantic, old character to compliment the celebration of their new, young life together! I believe she brought her vision to life on this special day:
One of my favorite projects from Interior Design school was probably the retail project at the very end of the program. We studied residential design for the first year, and tackled commercial design in the second year. When I was 15 my very first job was in a flower shop and I adored it. When I first started, I didn’t think of it any more than a job to make money and save for my future little green VW Buggy – but the longer I worked there and the more I learned about floral design, I saw myself becoming a florist professionally more and more! Now that I’m in Interior Design, I though it’d be ultra cool to design my own future flower shop! I have always loved the word “Alchemy” I don’t really know why… I like the shape my mouth makes when I say it and I enjoy hearing that word… it’s weird.

Flowers are amazing; there is so much you can do with them, and they bring encouragement where ever they go! Petals by Payton is my personal floral design business. I do floral arrangements for nearly every occasion whether it’s just because or for a wedding! I started working with flowers when I was fifteen years old. Continue reading
