As a Vernon Wedding Photographer, I have decided to interview some of the vendors that I have the pleasure of working with when we are both a part of someone’s big day! This is a fun way for you, as a soon-to-be bride, a couple, or even those of you who just happened to stumble across this blog, to get to know who the people are behind these brilliant companies, and to get a personal view of what they went through to get to where they are today.
INTERVIEWS with WEDDED BLISS PHOTOGRAPHY!
VENDOR: 27th Street Florist and Gift Boutique
LOCATION: 3801 27th Street, Vernon, British Columbia
INTERVIEWEE: Elsie Reid
-Who inspires you?
I am inspired by beautiful English gardens and flowers in general. One beautiful bloom can be an inspiration for an entire event.
-How did you get started in floral arrangements?
I have always been a very creative person so when the opportunity came 11 years ago to purchase 27th Street Florist I was in, quickly enrolled in a basic floral course at our local college and then continue to take courses with world famous designers who have really taught me an amazing amount.
-What has been your proudest accomplishment?
There are so many – I love making a sympathy arrangement for a family member that has meaning and significance to the deceased, that means everything to the family and pleases me that I can bring them some sort of comfort at that time. I have done some absolutely stunning wedding events and I love when we get to do the entire wedding and make it a themed event. To be voted Best Florist in the North Okanagan over and over again always makes me very proud.
-Where can people find your business?
My Mission is to keep people smiling with meaningful flowers
3 qualities that our business excels in are:
We really do care, we have compassion and we will go above and beyond to make sure everything is as perfect as it can be.
I can personally attest to Elsie amazing florals! For my own Wedding in 2007, I worked with her to create stunning bouquets and boutonniere’s. She is truly an artist with florals!

Really love your photographs!
