We’ve been calling Julie our cheeriest bride this year … it's not that our other brides are grumps, it’s just that Julie is so, well, extra cheery!
Julie’s colour palette was a fusion of ‘Glow’ and ‘Fire’ … perfect for her early fall Niagara on the Lake wedding! We designed this wedding with lots of yellow and orange flowers, including sunflowers, dahlias, garden and spray roses, callas and safflower … these cheery flowers totally matched Julie’s cheery personality! We also threw in a few ‘gardeny’ bits and pieces from our organic cutting garden, here at the studio.
We were aiming for a relaxed and natural feel that fit with the casually refined Coach House space at the Riverbend Inn. It was fun using some different non-floral elements, such as whole oranges and sliced lemons to add to the organic, earthy feel.
Julie's bouquet … wrapped in lace!
The cutest little gazebo out back at the Riverbend ... if you could look over to your right, you'd see a stunning view of the vineyards over looking the nearby Peller Estates Winery.
Our brides are really loving our custom-made Shepherd's Hooks ... we love 'em too!
Here she is ... the lovely Julie, our cheeriest bride of 2009!
We had a lot of fun with these centerpieces ... everyone really loved them and they suited the theme and space so perfectly!!!
Julie + Matthew also had all this great stationery created ... we loved the modern vintage feel!
Willow Cakes + Pastries created these wonderful Macaroon Cookies complete with little 'M's and 'J's ... the candy table was so delicious!
Congrats to Julie + Matthew … thanks for letting us share in your big day!
