Andrea came to us about her nuptials at Vineland Estates Winery ... to design and execute the florals and decor she would need for her intimate wedding of just 11 guests plus the bride and groom!!! We had soooooo much fun!!
Here's a fun fact: Andrea's a wee bit famous! You might have seen her on Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds and Blue Bloods ... or you might know her best as Dennis Leary's ex Janet Gavin on Rescue Me. Andrea is originally from Southern Ontario and she flew back to Niagara from LA to tie the knot with her producer fiancé, Todd Biermann.
We went for a romantic and natural look and feel in mainly white with touches of lavender and some silver foliage. There was lots of variety in shapes and textures and the shades of white and ivory.
Flowers included lavender foliage, white hydrangeas, white tuberose, white calla lilies, garden roses, white dahlia, freesia and white lisianthus.
It was a very relaxed day with the afternoon ceremony taking place out in the vineyards (it's grape harvest time right now and it smells so great!) followed by a 7 course dinner in the Carriage House prepared by Executive Chef Justin Downes.
Unfortunately, due to Andrea's fame, we're unable to show you any pictures of her ... but she's gorgeous!! Here is Andrea's bridal bouquet ...
And the co-ordinating bridesmaid's bouquet ...
Have we ever mentioned how much we love Vineland Estates? I think so ...
We designed a 14ft long tablescape featuring a stunning 'cloud' of silvery foliages, white flowers and an absolute ton of the cutest little hanging glass lanterns hovering above the table!
The toad lillies are in full bloom right now ... we plucked a few from our organic cutting garden to put in Andrea's centrepieces!
