Ever wonder how all those lovely details from your favourite weddings get put together?
We worked with the super creative Mike Enns of Enns Visuals to put together a short film giving you a little 'behind the scenes' view on how Ariel + Andrew's Anthropologie 'un-wedding' wedding was created! Mike bascially followed us around, filming our every move, documenting a day in the life of Mimosa Flower Studio.
And to think ... it all started with a yellow couch!
Heather + Peter were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the Burlington Bay at Burlington Golf and Country Club ... what a beautiful day! Immediately after the ceremony, guests were invited for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.
Heather's colour paletted featured 'Glow
' in shades of yellow with an accent of white and silvery pewter.
We designed this wedding using orchids, gloriosa, yellow garden roses and white macrphylla hydrangeas ... with touches of sculptural curly willow for some textural fun!
Here's a picture of Heather's yellow bridal bouquet finished in pewter ribbon with an under-looped collar ...
The co-ordinating bridesmaids bouquet in yellow, white and grey/pewter ...
The Burlington Golf and Country Club received a make-over a few years back ... a great looking venue with spectacular views of the bay and west end of Lake Ontario!
Loved these lucite chiavari chairs ... looked fab with the silvery pewter linens!
Each of the reception centrepieces was one of two different heights of tall glass with a full floral arrangement and an accent of curly willow at the top and as a cascade. A little handful of rough grey gravel in the bottom of the glass vessel tied it together nicely!
Here's the sketch we did for Heather + Peter ...

Sarah + Daniel tied the knot in a late afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony on the Terrace at Legends on the Niagara. Cocktails immediately followed the ceremony and later in the evening, guests enjoyed an evening dinner reception with the newlyweds!
Sarah's floral colour palette featured a mix of our Glow and Bliss palettes in shades of yellow, buttercup and cream with accents of peach, blush and salmon particularly evident in the bridesmaid's bouquets and dresses.
We designed using some dazzling yellow garden roses, yellow craspedia, white orchids and hydrangeas, dahlias, delicate cammomile, gloriosa blooms and oodles of gardeny bits such as mint and raspberry foliage from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio!
These custom-built Twiggy lantern 'street lights' made of birch poles looked absolutely awesome with the natural stone and wood elements in the room and on the terrace at Legends!
The wood cut-out Bride + Groom was sourced on Etsy ... bride Sarah sent in a photo which was turned into a sketch and hand-crafted into the cupcake topper!!
We wish Sarah + Daniel a blessed start to their marriage journey ... it was an honour to have had a part in making your big day so special!!
This weekend Reanne + Dan were married in an afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony in the headlands of the beautiful Etherington Estate vineyards, one of the many Cave Spring Cellars vineyards on the Beamville Bench wine appellation of Niagara.
It was the most perfect wedding weekend of the spring so far this year ... a beautiful vineyard setting, sunny and breezy, and, of course, delicious flowers!
We designed in our 'Glow' palette featuring predominately yellow flowers with all the coordinating napkins and other elements (such as the fans, favours, bridesmaid's dresses, etc.) all in gorgeous eggplant purple!
Flowers consisted of garden and standard roses, gerberas, craspedia, orchids, snaps, callas, and gardeny bits such as heuchera leaves, japanese painted fern, mint and scented geranium from our own organic cutting gardens!
The very natural and organic look was completed by some awesome wooden slabs we sliced up from reclaimed local locust tree stumps and the cutest little white ceramic vessels!!
The bride's bouquet in yellow featuring lots of gardeny bits and a special pendant detailing on the stem ...
Reanne + Dan were married outdoors right in the Cave Spring Cellars Vineyard!
The happy couple ... just married!
Guests joined Reanne + Dan over at Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in Jordan for cocktails and evening dinner reception ...
Blessings and best wishes to Reanne + Dan at the start of their marriage journey ... it was a pleasure being a part of your special day!!
Jennifer + Noel were married this past weekend in historic fashion (literally!) at Queenston Heights in Niagara-on-the-Lake, site of Brock's Monument, Canada's famous War of 1812 memorial tower overlooking the breathtaking Niagara River.
The dreamy tones of our 'Glow' palette featuring soft yellow, ivory and cognac set the mood for the space, while the garden roses, white hydrangeas, tulips, heaven-scented lily of the valley and peonies did all the heavy lifting design wise!
Best wishes and many blessings to Jennifer + Noel!
Noel's hat pin from his days in the Canadian military provided the emblem detailing on Jennifer's soft yellow bridal bouquet! Check out the cute bouquet 'collar' ruffles ...
We caught the Mr. and Mrs. shortly after having made it official ... loving the wardrobe!!
