One tree done two ways ...

Ever since we debuted our new custom-fabricated artisan metal trees at The Wedding Co. Show in January, we've had an amazing response!

Just imagine exchanging your wedding vows under a couple of these jaw-dropping trees ... indoors or out ... they'd be absolutely magnificent!!!  Or how about we use it to create a statement piece in the lobby, atrium, bar or lounge area of your event space ... they could be simply bare or absolutely loaded with foliage, branches or flowers of any colour ... it's also height adjustable!

For The Wedding Co. Show, we loaded this tree with nearly 300 stems of tangerine mokara orchids, hanging glass candle-lit lanterns and delicate handcrafted glass butterflies.

At the recent Vintage Hotels Wedding Show, we wanted to show a different way to use our trees ... so, we layered birch branches, camillia foliage and tangering mokara orchids to create an intimate canopy over a sweet-heart table for two! 

Simple. Beautiful. Lovely.

The *Made with Love* Project Short Film

We're so excited to finally share the latest film project we've just finished  ... we call it 'Made with Love' !!!

While we were dreaming this all up, we became focused on some specific words and phrases such as ... 'local', 'heirloom', 'hand-made', 'authentic', 'community', 'nature', 'living in the moment' ... we followed our heart and really let these words become our mantra to guide us through this project.

Be sure to check out the Made with Love Project photos as well.

On most creative projects like this one, many, many hours are spent crafting a space to perfection so as to be pristinely captured for publication and then, quicker than it went up, it's all torn down and packed away and everyone runs back to their busy lives! There's something that just feels wrong about that ... so, this time around, we felt it was really important that those involved get to enjoy the fruits of our labour and share the joy of the moment!  So, at the end of day with all of our hard work behind us, we invited a few friends to join us as we sat down for dinner + drinks!

At it's heart, Made with Love is a story about beauty, friendship, connection and kindred spirits ... it's a story that is about more than just a theme or colour scheme ... it’s about more than a schedule of events or formalities and pretense.

Certainly it's about engaging the senses and creating a setting full of discovery and beauty ... but it’s also about all of the little details that have a way of bringing people closer together to celebrate our togetherness!

This story was Made with Love and the creative gifts of a few good friends ...

The Sugar Shack Canadiana Inspired Wedding

A sugar shack is not just a space where maple syrup is crafted .. it's also a traditional Canadian gathering place that houses wonderful memories, and age old traditions. It's simply the perfect setting for an early spring Canadian wedding!

We were excited to be involved in this 'concept shoot' for an intimate wedding at Crinklaw’s Sugar Shack ... an ideal setting for a sweet early spring love fest!

Bright orange tins filled to the brim with sugary maple sap provided the inspiration for the colour palette. Tangerine became our base colour and paired nicely with rustic caramel, a bold Canadian red and creamy vanilla. The custom stationary products also added a playful touch to this fete!

In keeping with the heritage vibe of this rustic setting, vintage elements such as snow shoes, copper pots and gold plated china were paired with the bride’s fun and lively, knee grazing BHLDN dress.

Pedestal vases arranged with soft and fuzzy spring pussy willows flanked the old wooden front door. Inside the cozy shack, raw wooden beams and a crackling fireplace provided the ideal atmosphere for a sweetheart table that was topped with a cheery vintage tablecloth. The tabletop was overflowing with delicate poppies, whimsical ranunculus and lush roses.

Bliss at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co.

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 outdoor scene, we first selected The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. as our location because we love it so much! Then we paired 'Bliss', (one of our all-time fave colour palettes!) with 'Twiggy' (one of our newest collections) and voila ... absolute perfection!

Twiggy inspired elements include our fabulous cork logs, the coca-cola coloured bubbled glass and funky wooden acacia balls.  Florals include garden roses, orchids, dahlias, hydrangea, red skimmia and pink pepperberries.

We're so in love with the modern vintage flair of these pictures!
