A garden moment

A Bride Sends her Memories of ‘Seasons Above the Bay’

So many thanks go out to Ariel and Brian Stott, who spent their time with us last summer, as they prepared for and enjoyed their wedding, in the Cowichan Valley.

We were so happy to provide them with a sanctuary in which to work on their flower arrangements (I was delighted to complete bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids) and the remaining details for their big day.

More importantly, when they returned to champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries, and all the comforts of our ‘Memories of Paris’ suite, they knew they had made the best choice for themselves.  Breakfast on the patio each morning of their stay was replete with the antics of Lucky, our tuxedo kitty, who makes his appearance in Ariel’s photos, draining our patio fountain!

The morning after their wedding, and following breakfast, Ariel made her way around the garden, and made an exquisite job of committing to memory our flowers of summer.  We look forward to their next visit, and thank them for making us a part of such an important time.

It was our pleasure playing a part in such an important day.  We have come to realize that it is a segment of business that suits us very well, and which we would really like to develop.  Our property lends itself to weddings of an intimate size (30 people and fewer), and our gardens provide a wealth of floral backdrop.

In addition, the preparation of flower arrangements, bouquets, and even wedding cakes to fit the occasion are part of the services we would like to provide.  Moreover, we have the perfect set up to provide ideal pre-wedding preparation space, for dressing and make up application.  Our suites are really tailor made for honeymooning or for use by parents and others related to the wedding, as the most lovely and comfortable accommodation.

We would truly love to have the opportunity to help you create and host your ideal day to remember.

  1. Wonderful post, I really enjoyed it! Your B&B is perfectly suited for events like this, Bev. What a lovely home you present to your guests. We loved our time photographing it earlier and look forward to hopefully having a chance to return in the spring when the flowers bloom to do a full session of your gorgeous gardens!

    1. Thanks so much, to you, and to Mrs. Toad, too, for taking the time to tune us in, and share your kind thoughts, Toad! Did you notice that we’ve put your gorgeous photographs of our place in the slideshow on the home page of our website? It would be the greatest privilege if you were to make it into the gardens, here at http://www.seasonsabovethebay.com and work your photographic magic, come Spring; we’ll surely look forward to that, my friend!
