Nestled in the heart of Kitsilano is the gorgeous Celsia Floral, a boutique floral design studio with a love of whimsy and an eye for the unique. We were overjoyed to have Celsia Florist
at the 2013 Crème de la Crème
Showcase at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver
Known for their natural, botanical-inspired design where romantic meets luxe, Celsia
takes great pride in ensuring their clients’ wedding visions are brought to life in the most beautiful way possible.
“Every part of a wedding should be a reflection of the couple and we believe this extends to the flowers,” says owner Johanna Siu. “We see every consultation as an opportunity to get creative and design timeless and elegant florals that are uniquely you. Rather than focusing on trend, we like to focus on the individual.” Using the best that nature has to offer, Celsia has a strong emphasis on using seasonal, locally-grown flowers wherever possible.
“Nature is most certainly our inspiration. Sometimes the most interesting part of floral design is not necessarily the well-known flowers. It can be the more unique elements like branches and fruit, wildflowers, vines or a little-known bloom. These are the extra touches that will take your guests’ breath away when they enter your wedding and see something truly special – after the sight of the bride of course!”
It is evident to see the talent behind these gorgeous floral arrangements. Celsia
flowers will not only enhance a space, room or venue - it will help transform it in the most beautiful way! Be sure to follow them on Facebook
for more inspiration & visual candy!
