The Design Co.: A bloomin' arrangement in Ottawa - Ottawa CitizenFriday, February 05, 2016
Evermore Weddings and Events near Almonte, Stonefields Heritage Farm south of Carleton Place, and Temple’s Sugar Bush in Lanark County. Dressy linens, smart chairs and days-gone-by charm typify such spots.Whatever your taste in venues, she says to first add up the number of guests to make sure the location can actually accommodate them.Price says there are a number of other wedding trends that people tying the knot should be aware of. Matchy, matchy bridesmaids dresses, for instance, are giving way to gowns in the same hue but different styles. During the ceremony, the wedding party no longer has to gather around the couple with groomsmen on one side and bridesmaids on the other, thereby putting an end to the military-like arrays that typified your parents’ nuptials.As to colour, watch for more purple flowers in 2016, florist Erin Carmichael says. Large classic white blooms are always in fashion, too. MIV PhotographyWhat hasn’t changed over the decades is the minimal role the groom usually plays in planning his own wedding, a fact to which most men don’t actually object. The opinion of the groom is sought on food, venue and music, says Price, but, “our boss that day is that person in the big white dress.”Also unchanging: the skyrocketing cost of weddings. A recent reader survey by Weddingbells and Mariage Québec magazines pegged the expected cost in 2015 of an average Canadian wedding including honeymoon at $30,717.And if you think you can shave costs by, for example, holding the entire event at the family’s beloved lakeside property, think again, according to Price — unless, that is, your folks own a rental company (think dishware for all those guests), a catering business, a, well, you get the picture. She notes that her company works with a minimum budget of $40,000.The team behind Ottawa’s Design Co. MIV PhotographyA final word to brides-to-be: don’t get your garters in a knot if you haven’t a clue about what sort of wedding you want. Says Carmichael, “A lot of time they don’t (know) so then Stacey and I have the freedom to create something for them based on their personality and style. I love it!”Few aspects of a wedding are as important as photography.

After running The Blossom Shop in Carleton Place for 35 years, owner Yvonne Kilpatrick is stopping to smell the roses.“I am 71-years-old and I am ready to retire,” Kilpatrick tells the Canadian Gazette.While her last day is Dec. 29, Kilpatrick assures the community the landmark business is continuing...just under new ownership, and she is keeping mum on the buyers’ identity.“They are not local,” the longtime florist says, “and you will never see them.”The Blossom Shop, located at 167 Bridge St., was on the market for nearly a year, finally selling in October.The same trusted staff will be staying on, with Beth Portt as manager.

Texas Florist Who Admitted to Being in Pelosi’s Office Wants Case Moved from D.C. Because of ‘Cancel Culture’ - Law & CrimeWednesday, March 31, 2021
Washington, D.C. because of “cancel culture.” The defense for Texas florist Jenny Louise Cudd, who was on video happily admitting to being in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asserted authorities were creating the “illusion” of a conspiracy between her and Eliel Rosa by linking their cases.“According to the Government’s Statement of Facts, the two were seen on security footage walking into the building, walking around, and walking out,” attorney Marina Medvin said in a filing Wednesday. “There is no evidence of communications or a plan between the two to enter the Capitol. Instead, the evidence is purported to be that they were at the same place, at the same time, followed a crowd into the open doors of the Capitol building, then walked out. They didn’t take anything, they didn’t break anything.”Cudd was among rioters raiding the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, after then-President Donald Trump continued to lie that he actually won the 2020 presidential election. The invaders postponed but did not prevent Congress for counting electoral college votes weighing in favor of the real winner, President Joe ... https://lawandcrime.com/u-s-capitol-siege/texas-florist-who-admitted-to-being-in-pelosis-office-wants-case-moved-from-d-c-because-of-cancel-culture/
