I have decided to create a unique segment of my blog that features local businesses in the Edmonton Wedding & Event Industry. I am a big supporter of local businesses and helping get the fabulous work they are doing out to people who may have never heard of them. I want Edmonton Weddings to be your go to place for all your wedding answers about the Edmonton Wedding Industry.
My first feature is on an Edmonton Florist Dasee Floral Boutique. You may have heard about them this week with their amazing Curated Garden! Cory Christopher the owner of Dasee Floral Boutique has completely transformed his flower shop into the most gorgeous and inspirational garden. The transformation is absolutely incredible and unbelievable if you don’t see it with your own eye.
Cory has arranged to have multiple events going on in his curated garden all last week and continuing on this week until June 8, 2013. I attended the YEG Tweet Up this last Thursday and was able to walk though the garden in his store. I made sure to take lots of photos of the garden to share with you, but to be honest this is a must see experience.

This is one of my favourite images from my visit to the Curated Garden. To most people who don’t look at everything (yes everything) with an event planners eye it is just a framed piece of wood with a dress hanging in it. But to me I visualize a gorgeous photography prop. Imagine this in a rustic barn style wedding filled with overflowing flowers hanging. The bride and groom kissing in the corner for a picture perfect image. I plan on using this item with the perfect wedding or event to come! Yes Cory I want this
Can you believe this? This is a gorgeous floral wedding dress! Yes a wedding dress! This would be so pretty at a garden wedding with a little bit of a couture twist!
This is the floor… and as a side note there is supposed to be actual tile under there! It’s not that exciting of a picture but who would be crazy enough to do that to their floor! Think of the clean up! BUT the point is if someone would do that to their own store then you know they are willing to go the extra mile to make your wedding flowers amazing!
Erin & I enjoying the Curated Garden! Such a fabulous way to spend the night with a good friend!
I plan to pop back into the store and take some photos of the shop when it is back together and no longer a garden for you to see the before and after photos. To see more of the Dasee Floral Boutique work take a look at a previous blog post featuring their talent.
