What a weekend for love!!! The weather was near perfect, the venues and vendors we worked with were amazing and, if you don't mind us saying, the flowers were fantastic as well!! ;)
Calgarians Andrea + Jeff were married in the Rose Garden at Pillar and Post and later that evening hosted a celebratory dinner reception in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing in Niagara on the Lake ... two fine choices indeed!
Andrea's colour palette was a version of our Shade palette augmented with accents of grey/pewter and featuring hits of chocolate and deep purply burgundy ... cool, refreshing, upscale gardeny look with attitude! Thanks to Andrea + Jeff for indulging our passion for their wedding flowers ... best wishes!!!
Andrea's bouquet featured some cascading Amaranthus and we hand-tied in the lace detailing on the stem. The bouquet also featured raspberry, mint, lavender and fern fronds from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio!
The wedding ceremony in the Rose Garden at Pillar and Post featured our Grapevine Arbour, Shepherd's Hooks lining the aisle (with rose petals!) and twin oversized floral arrangements flanking the altar area.
Lately we're loving how Parasols are showing up at the wedding ceremony ... form and function!
The wedding party looked totally amazing ... tried our best to get some good photos, but had to dance around both the official photographer and the cinematographers!!
And finally our modelicious bride Andrea and her father ... about to escort her down the aisle!!
In the Grand Georgian Ballroom, we created a birch and willow canopy under which the head table was placed ... all lit up with soft glowing lantern and flood lights, it was ammmmmazing ... wish we coulda dined under there!
The guest tables featured our full floral centerpieces with Simply Beautiful Décor providing the crystal globe lanterns, chargers, linens and chiavari chairs.
In the Atrium (which was the cocktail area) under the giant chandelier we created this big conversation piece from cork, large slabs of walnut tree, willow and a plethora of flowers and candlelight!
These absolutely delicious cupcakes and wedding cake were designed by the talented team at Vineyard Sweets ... as beautiful to taste as they are to look at!
