Michelle + Shawn at Queen’s Landing, Niagara-on-the-Lake

Michelle + Shawn tied the knot in an afternoon wedding ceremony in the Atrium at Queen's Landing in lovely downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake! Later on, guests were invited back for evening cocktails and to celebrate with them in the Imperial Ballroom over dinner!

Deep purple, rose, champagne, burgundy and muted magenta were all in the colour palette for the day. A very modern vintage theme featuring classic glassware and pewter accents such as our hammered-rim votive holders, pewter linens and silver chiavari chairs.

Blooms included purple vandas, dazzling dahilias, roses, picasso callas, white and antique green hydrangeas, curly willow and toad lily plucked straight from our studio's organic cutting gardens!

Heather + Mike’s Niagara Winery Wedding

Heather + Mike's Niagara winery wedding took place at the historic Saint Mary of the Assumption Church just a few kilometers from Hernder Estate Winery where they later invited their guests to an evening of wine, food and fun!

For Heather + Mike's reception, we designed a mix of tall and low elegant romantic centrepieces that were full and flowery featuring shades of deep purple, grape, vibrant green, white and light purple in our Breeze palette. The room was loaded with green and white hydrangeas, cymbids, purple roses, deep purple vanda orchids ...

Sarah + Mike at Queen’s Landing, Niagara-on-the-Lake

It was a busy first 'official' weekend of the 2011 wedding season for us ... but so nice to get back into the groove after a long winter!

Sarah + Mike were married in Niagara-on-the-Lake at St. Vincent de Paul church in an afternoon ceremony and later they celebrated with an elegant dinner reception at Queen's Landing (just around the corner), one of the Vintage Hotels.

The palette for the day consisted of ivory/champagne, white, old world gold and featured a deep fig purple in the girls' bouquets. The star blooms were definitely the most delicate and elegant phalaenopsis orchids on the table tops ... actually, orchids in general, including cymbids, vandas and lady slippers, were all over the place!

We also brought loads of candles to imbue the ballroom with warmth and romance.

Sarah was so excited and grateful ... she gushed profusely every time we met up all day long ... she certainly knew how to make us feel appreciated! It was definitely our pleasure to design for this lovely couple ... Sarah + Mike, we wish you a blessed marriage journey!!

High Tea at Stone Mill Inn

In September we spent three days producing a suite of five different 'scenes' to inspire and excite you about all the dreamy possibilities for your wedding ... we're over the moon to finally be able to share them with you!

For this 'High Tea' inspired scene, we're featuring the heavenly yellow hues of our 'Glow' palette and the sexy hourglass shapes and classic glass designs of our 'Perennial' collection.

Luscious blooms of yellow gloriosa, garden roses, dahlias, orchids, Queen Anne's lace, hydrangea and delicate camomile pair well with raspberry foliage and mint plucked from our organic cutting gardens.

We even brought out our antique white bone china tea set for the occasion!

Jennifer + Matthew ... married in Niagara!

Usually this late into the season, our weddings tend to be more intimate and close-knit affairs ... however, this month I think we're setting some sort of all-time 'guest attendance' record!

For instance, take Jennifer + Matthew who were married this past weekend, celebrating with their nearly 400 guests, packing both the church and reception venue to the gills! And we heard it was a great party ... going until nearly 3:00am with both a live Macedonian band and DJ keeping the dance floor packed into the wee hours.

We were working with a predominately white and ivory palette with splashes of fresh chartreuse coming from the foliage of the flowers. White hydrangeas, roses, garden roses, ivory lisianthus and some gorgeous white anemones (with black centres) commanded the monobotanical floral palette.

Structural design elements included birch logs, manzanita branches and an absolute ton of glass vessels and candlelight! Set against the guest tables covered in slate crinkle linen with dramatic black chair covers, it was all very modern, clean and formal, yet relaxed and tangible at the same time!

Jennifer's bridal bouquet ... a very soft and creamy delicate bouquet of garden roses, peonies and ranunculus was a perfect compliment to her absolutely stunning Oscar de la Renta dress ... we're soooo loving those ruffles!!

Floral decor for the reception was split between two different table designs. The first consisted of a tablescape of pedestal glass in various heights filled with monobotanical flowers, birch logs and candles interspersed. The second design, on round tables, featured a single manzanita branch covered with moss and white orchids climbing up into the branches with rose petals, votive candles and hanging lanterns. Sometimes we'll do up a sketch of our planned tablescape to help our clients visualize the final design ... a background in visual art certainly comes in handy at times!!
