It's been a while since we've been at Vineland Estates Winery, but some things will never change ... we still looove intimate Niagara winery weddings!!
Vineland Estates is still one of the most beautiful intimate winery wedding venues in Niagara and it always feels like coming home when we get to work there. It's great to see Diane and Jared and the crew ... we've got a great history of designing/hosting the most beautiful weddings together!
Mary + Dan were married in the lovely old stone Carriage House overlooking the vineyard with the Niagara Escarpment in the distance ... breathtakingly beautiful! After the ceremony, their guests were invited on a wine tour and the Carriage House was seamlessly flipped into the reception space ... a beautiful tablescape seating 17 guests in the centre of the room!
Mary's colour palette was a Forest meets Charm mash-up ... the main focus was white and ivory with just a little splash of blush for colour! We used white mini callas, orchids, freesia, sahara roses, blackberries, blushing bride, dianthus and event some antique green hydrangeas and clematis vine from our studio organic cutting garden!
This closeup of the bride's bouquet gives you a good idea of the colour palette we were working with ... white, ivory and soft blush!
Mary's bridal bouquet ... no bridesmaids this time!
Have I said how much we love this place? I'll let the pictures do the talking now ...
The long harvest or mission-style tablescape is one of our favourite things to do in the Carriage House ... there's something magical about the intimacy and ambiance that it brings to the space.
Between the ceremony and reception setup, we had a little time to sit down in the Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant and enjoy THE most decadent and tasty dessert and cappuccino I've had in a long while ... it's been a busy season! I leave you with this one mouth-watering picture ... mmmmm!
Cheers and best wishes to Mary + Dan ... it was a pleasure to be part of your special day!
