Our Wedding Co. Show 2013 ‘Enchanted Forest’ Display

It's fun to do wedding shows, but super exhausting!  The real thrill of it all is to see the final product 'live' in front of you when it's only been in your head for far too long!!!

For 2013, we'd been dreaming of doing something very different ... we purposely avoided the traditional 'table & chairs' setup.

What we dreamt up was a kind of "The-Hobbit-meets-Twilight-meets-The-Enchanted-Forest" theme ... we only had a 6ft x 10ft space to pull it off in!

Our bride's bouquet contained garden roses, anemones, viburnum berries, ranunculus, white vanda orchids and delicate narcisus blooms. We custom created the bouquet stem wrap from fabric found at The Workroom. (Thanks to Two Birds Bridesmaid for allowing us to 'steal' their model for this image!)

The Wedding Co. Show 2013 - Featuring Mimosa Flower Studio

The anchor elements in our display area included a pair of our giant 12ft tall 'twiggy' trees covered in cork bark, moss, ferns and more than 400 stems of white dendrobium orchids!

The Wedding Co. Show 2013 - White Orchid Display

The featured floral centrepiece was sitting atop our newest custom creation ... a gigantic metal 'stump' (yes, it's metal!!!) repleat with root veins, bark, tree rings and little knots and knobs ... we love it and we so excited to unveil it this weekend!

So, so, SO many potential uses for this stump ... cake stand, a statement piece with florals on it or thow on a plexi round and turn it into a Sweetheart Table or a candy bar. It also splits into two pieces and can be used at a ceremony/altar site with twin florals on it ... so many things to imagine!

Of course 'Emerald Green' (2013 Colour of the Year) had to make an appearance!

In the wee minutes of the show, we threw together an impromptu photo shoot with our new 'stump and an awesome 'woodland' themed wedding cake from Sweetere!  Uber-awesome photog Nataschia Wielink (our show neighbour for the weekend!) captured a couple of shots!

Raewyn + Charlie’s Private Blue Mountain Wedding (featured in Wedluxe)

This wedding was featured in WedLuxe magazine!

Raewyn + Charlie's wedding was held on her family's private horse farm at the base of the Blue Mountains on a perfect early summer day in June!

We had soooo much fun working with Crystal (Distinct Occasions) and Paras (Design 2 Decor) to put together this elegant and organic feeling landscape-inspired gem!!!

This wedding was chock full of pale pastels ... lavender, blush, butter, ivory, soft green ... and seaonal florals including peonies, garden roses, delphiniums, lavender, herb and fern plants, moss, lily of the valley, succulents, lisianthus, clematis vine and other tidbits of gardeny goodness!

All the lovely rough luxe details worked to tie the 'look and feel' together ... cork bark, natural wood tables, crystal stemware, custom floral chandelier, co-ordinated oatmeal linens and tent draping and even the custom carpeted flooring and dance floor!

Here are some of our own photos of the day ... enjoy!

We created a couple of enormous 'twiggy trees' (15 ft high) which not only looked fab, they also served to help increase the intimacy of the space by making the ceiling feel a little lower!

Private Wedding Reception at Blue Mountain - Tall Trees

We designed a few types of centrepieces ... the first was a a low and lush, landscape-inspired floral for the round tables. There was no visible vessel and they featured ferns, moss, succulents and garden blooms married with cork bark.

The second style of centrepiece was for the long communal tables and featured a continuous landscape of florals and ferns interspersed with candles, succulents and moss stretching along the full length of the tablescape.

Hanging in the centre of the space, the 6ft x 5ft metal and wood base for this jaw-dropping floral chandelier was custom-made by Design 2 Decor and then we infused it with a ton of floral goodness!

Sarah + Greg at The Observatory (Spencers at the Waterfront)

We had a lot of fun dreaming up, designing and installing the florals and elements for Sarah + Greg's wedding in The Observatory at Spencer's at the Waterfront in Burlington on the north shore of Lake Ontario!

The Observatory is a relatively new venue with gianormous floor to ceiling glass windows (nearly 20ft high) overlooking Lake Ontario, right on Burlington's revitalized waterfront ... the space and view are magnificent!

Sarah's floral colour palette showcased shades of green, grey, stone, ivory and white in a very natural and organic fashion.

Elements and flowers included birch branches and birch bark, cork, flagstone, moss, succulents, jute, pods, ferns, anemones, antique hydrangea, ranunculus, dusty miller and host of other textural bits and pieces!

The ceiling in The Observatory is amazing, but very, very high ... so we created and installed a couple of nearly 20ft tall 'birch' trees that were covered in moss, succulents and dripping with warm candlelight!

Lori + Roy at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Bride and Groom, Lori + Roy, are creative, theatrical types ... we were hooked when she shared her ideas for a 'speakeasy' inspired affair that took cues from the prohibition era of the 1920's and early 1930's!

To garner inspiration, we dreamed about bird cages and nests, shoeshine boys, cigar & cigarettes, crooked gamblers, bobby cops and The Cotton Club!

We designed in bold colours (black, white, red) and florals that were feminine and textural (black and ivory lace in layers) ... garden roses, orchids, dahlias.

Joyce + Jon at Stratus Vineyards

Joyce + Jon were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the edge of the vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake at Stratus ... which, if you've never been, is a MUST visit when in Niagara's wine country!

From the way it was built to the way it operates every day, Stratus Vineyards is one of the world’s most sustainable wineries and became the first fully LEED-certified winery in the world in 2005. From their four-storey gravity based tank elevator to their 1000 barrel above ground cellar, Stratus is truly a facilty that is a work of art, as much as the wine it produces!!!

We were excited to design the florals and the space in the Press Gallery at Stratus along one 75ft long communal table ... such a magnificent structural, raw and elemental modern space that would be juxtaposed against living elements that are natural, local and organic in look and feel.

Working with a palette that consisted of white, ivory, butter, natural green and muted gold, we designed the florals using roses, white mums, green apples, textural grasses (millet, flowey ditch grasses, roadsidia), dahlias, green/white hydrangeas and fun foliages from our cutting gardens including mint and raspberry foliage.

Each of the three enormously tall 'twiggy' trees was covered in over 2000 orchid blooms and were absolutely dripping with candlelight providing a soft glow to warm up the reception space after dark.
