16 May 2011
It was a busy first 'official' weekend of the 2011 wedding season for us ... but so nice to get back into the groove after a long winter!
Sarah + Mike were married in Niagara-on-the-Lake at St. Vincent de Paul church in an afternoon ceremony and later they celebrated with an elegant dinner reception at Queen's Landing (just around the corner), one of the Vintage Hotels.
The palette for the day consisted of ivory/champagne, white, old world gold and featured a deep fig purple in the girls' bouquets. The star blooms were definitely the most delicate and elegant phalaenopsis orchids on the table tops ... actually, orchids in general, including cymbids, vandas and lady slippers, were all over the place!
We also brought loads of candles to imbue the ballroom with warmth and romance.
Sarah was so excited and grateful ... she gushed profusely every time we met up all day long ... she certainly knew how to make us feel appreciated! It was definitely our pleasure to design for this lovely couple ... Sarah + Mike, we wish you a blessed marriage journey!!

For the wedding ceremony, we designed four large floral arrangements and a dozen cute little pew posies with white hydrangea.
These absolutely breathtaking phalaenopsis orchids stole the show in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing ... an amazing combo that also featured our exclusive Perennial glassware collection. We sketched it out for Sarah + Mike ...
We created a 'Wishing Tree' in the Atrium that featured Manzanita branches, purple vanda orchids and lovely hanging glass lanterns.
