Tracy Nolan~ Owner/ Lead Coordinator & Senior Floral Designer

*WPIC Certified Wedding Planner *CIFD Certified Floral Designer *Gay Certified by 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute

We started 2013 in lovely Muskoka where we had the pleasure working with a great couple, providing wedding flowers & décor for their Winter Wedding!

We then flew to Montreal to work with a Corporate client, helping design a Winter Wonderland Gala for over 400 people. It was my very first time flying Porter & I loved it!

Next was the WPIC Kick Off Event! In 2013, I was the WPIC Regional Representative for Durham Region. Myself & fellow Reg. Reps from Muskoka, Halton/Peel, Kitchener/Waterloo, Niagara & Ottawa all collaborated together & planned an amazing event for our fellow WPIC alumni

Durham Region has a new WPIC Regional Representative, as we change it up every 6-12 months. It just so happens to be a wonderful friend & colleague of mine who is the Wedding coordinator at Mill Run Golf Club, Amy Stevenson

During Wedding Season, we were very busy! Creating beautiful wedding bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, centerpieces & ceremony flowers for several couples. We also provided Wedding Day Management for a few of them as well

I can’t express enough the “priceless” feeling I get when I hand a bride her bouquet & she gushes!

I truly love flowers & floral design and being able to combine my passion & a business is a blessing that I never thought possible….until now

Working with couples on their Special Day & taking over the stress & management of the day so they can relax & enjoy every single, precious moment is so rewarding. Watching them smile, eat, drink, dance without a worry, is why I do what I do

I provide my clients with that peace of mind & trust that comes through in my passion

Thank you to all of our past clients who took the time to share their kind words & experience working with us! Because of that, we were just notified that FCL Weddings & Floral Designs has been awarded the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards for 2014!!!

In July, we decided to open an office in the downtown Oshawa area. We share that space with 2 other great wedding vendors,

In-Style Weddings & Décor and Your Captured Moments Photography

It’s a great opportunity & convenience for couples planning their weddings, as it is a one-stop-shop! You can book a wedding planner, florist, photographer, photo booth, wedding décor, & candy buffet all under 1 roof

Clients are not obligated to book with all the vendors & we never push them to do so, but we have discovered that several clients love the idea of booking our services & having meetings on the same day, in the same location!

We are located at 70 Albert St. Oshawa~ By Appointment Only

We had an amazing year & we are looking forward to the 2014 Wedding Season! We learned a lot from all the weddings & clients we worked with in 2013. We will continue to give all our clients the BEST service we can as we continue to better ourselves & learn from past mistakes

We will continue to network with other wedding professionals, attend conferences and seminars to provide our clients with the confidence they made the right choice hiring FCL Weddings!

See you in 2014

Happy Planning!

We loved working with this couple! They were the most calm & coolest clients we have worked with

Nothing phased them, even when they had to stop in the middle of the ceremony to call 911 because one of their groomsmen passed out & hit his head

Thankfully, he was alright & returned to the reception after a brief visit to the hospital

The venue of choice for their Winter Wedding was the gorgeous JW Marriott~ The Rosseau in beautiful Muskoka

We provided all Wedding Flowers & décor for this wedding. The B&G put us up in the stunning hotel for the night. Our room was a gorgeous suite complete with a full eat-in kitchen, fireplace & balcony which overlooked the snow covered property

We had so much fun, we stayed an extra night!

 

 

Such a beautiful couple that we had the pleasure working with! We provided Wedding Day Management & all wedding flowers. Ceremony was held at the very stunning & historic Casa Loma & the reception at the Mississauga Grand

Not only were the bride & groom amazing to work with but their families were also fantastic, such a loving family!

Christine & Stuart had over 300 guests attend their wedding & the FCL team had everyone & everything on schedule

Christine chose  ivory, creams, & blush/soft pink as her colour pallet for her flowers with just a splash of cranberry in her arrangements

Every wedding that we provide flowers for, we always make corsages & boutonniere’s for parents & grand parents but in their culture, they provide all close family members with a flower. So in addition to the groom’s, groomsmen & parent/ grandparent bouts/corsages, we made an additional 77 “pin on” boutonniere’s

We were provided with the amazing “same day” edited video from Tie The Knot Pictures of their wedding ceremony *See Christine & Stu’s Wedding Video~ Blog post

Our next September Wedding

Victoria & Daniel~ Sept. 7, 2013~Royal Ambassador

Not only did we provide all the flowers for this lovely couple, but we also provided Wedding Day Management

The bride & groom chose the Royal Ambassador as their wedding due to the gorgeous outdoor ceremony site. The gazebo & stunning manicured gardens overlook a tree lined pond.

Unfortunately Mother Nature did not co-operate & she rained, hard all day!

Victoria called my cell phone just as she was en route to the venue, hoping I was going to tell her that it was not raining & the sun was shining……um, no

I had to be the bearer of bad news. I had to tell her, her dream wedding wasn’t going to be exactly as she dreamed, we had plan B (inside) set-up & ready to go

All 300+ guests have arrived & are seated, waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle……..then……the rain stopped!

Daniel insisted that his bride was going to have the wedding she dreamed of & myself, my assistant & the amazing RA staff sprung into action & we flipped the ceremony site. All the guests moved outside, after the staff dried off all the chairs, moved all the flowers & lanterns & the DJ moved all their equipment, all in 15 minutes!

Mother Nature kept the rest of the day/night dry from that point on & our couple was so happy as they surprised their guests with an awesome fireworks display!

Here are a few photos of Victoria & Daniel’s wedding

This was the moment the bride was told that we were going to flip the ceremony & move it outside. I think she was happy, no?
