We're always excited to find our work in the pages of Weddingbells magazine!
This particularly bold and beautiful tablescape is featured in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Weddingbells - on newsstands now!

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!
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!

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!
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.
Complete with bird cage veil, fascinators, Marcel Wave and bob updos these flapper styled ladies looked amazing! So did the fellas ... all decked out in top hats and tails!
Cheers and best wishes to Lori + Roy ... we had a lot of fun designing for your Wedding Day!!

This weekend we travelled up the 400 to the little town of Port Carling in Muskoka Lakes to work with Anne Anderson Events on Lindsay + Will's wedding at Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club!
Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club opened 90 years ago in 1922 and today members can reserve the waterfront Clubhouse for private parties and weddings ... needless to say, the view was spectacular! (The Clubhouse is built right out over the water and is totally surrounded by glass!)
The look and feel for the day was what you might call 'Upscale Muskoka' ... cottage resort glamour with varied organic and natural elements such as jute, cork, willow, barnboard/wood and glass.
The colour palette for the reception space was ivory, pale blush, deep olive green, slate grey and medium pink. We had a separate colour palette for the outdoor signature drink bar area which featured green, white and pale yellow.
The bride and bridesmaid's bouquets ...
The gorgeous Windermere United Church ... Lindsay + Will tied the knot here!
This rockin' Signature Drink Bar was custom made from barnboard by the fine folks at Hazlitt Vintage Rentals!
We created and installed a couple of massive 12ft tall trees spanning the space where the wedding cake would later sit and helping to divide the lounge area from the dance floor/band space.
Blooms included garden roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, dahlias, lamb's ear, ranunculus and absolute ton of our 'gardeny bits' including raspberry foliage, mint, geranium and bloomed-out clematis vine. Moss and succulents also made an appearance!
Textural elements and containers included cork, mint julep, glass, mason jars and green glass bottles.
Congratulations again Lindsay + Will ... it was a pleasure to design the flowers for your beautiful wedding!!
