Cannibals and bridesmaid’s bouquets

I have been a very naughty florist and biz-lady and have not kept the old blog up to date AT ALL. 

It’s one of the hazards of being married to a teacher: when no one else in your house has to wear pants or go to work for two months, it’s difficult to stay in worker bee mode!

In my defense, a lot of our spare time has been spent on Mr. Spencer’s summer project. He is writing and co-directing an indie horror film called the Stronghold. (There is an awesome Station 14 clip about the film here, and the creative team has a facebook page here.)

I volunteered as boom-mic holder to spend some time with the husband. HAAA. Do I get an ‘A’ for effort? 

When I’m not rocking it out in a suburban cannibal dystopia, I like to make beautiful bridal bouquets for Kingston area weddings! We are long overdue for some more photos of wedding season 2014. 

Kate and Alexander tied the knot on May 31. They are from Ottawa, but they love Kingston so much, they decided to have a destination wedding here. Their reception? A rainbow-themed karaoke party on board the Island Star. GET. OUT. ( I actually thought Kate was a friend pranking me when she first emailed me about her unique rainbow, fruit-and-veggie infused designs, her preferences were so similar to mine and she was so easy going about everything. I’m so glad this was real!)

Here’s Kate’s bouquet

Events Coordinator Heather and her team at Kingston 1000 Island Cruises were great to work with. If you’re considering a wedding reception on lovely Lake Ontario, I’d highly recommend getting in touch. You can reach her at
