Helen + Steven at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Our little Helen finally married her Steven this weekend ... and we were absolutely delighted to be a part of their Big Day at Queen's Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Helen came to us because she connected with our work ... she also quickly became a friend and confidant. A total kindred spirit! We love it when those magical little friendships blossom because it makes doing 'our thing' for the wedding extra special!

The oh-so-romantic shades of red, burgundy and cerise that comprise a palette we like to call Passion featured prominently in Helen + Steven's wedding day floral decor. Garden roses, orchids, pink/red hydrangeas, pink pepperberries and some off-beat elements such as pomegranates, chestnuts and curly willow appeared in spades.

We knew we had nailed it when Helen (still in her PJ's!) came running barefoot into the Ballroom giving us all exuberant hugs of appreciation ... and we hadn't even finished our floral installation yet!! Helen + Steven ... it was our great privilege to be a part of your wedding celebration ... we're sure it was some sort of divine appointment!

This was Helen's bridal bouquet ... loving those amazing orchids and gorgeous garden roses!!! A perfect match to the detailing her in dazzling wedding dress ...

Helen's bridesmaids carried slightly smaller coordinating bouquets ... they really rocked against their black dresses!

Helen + Steven's wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful glass encompassed Atrium at Queen's Landing.

Guests later returned to the Atrium for cocktails followed by an evening dinner reception in the Grand Georgian Ballroom. Once the Ceremony had taken place, we created this large floral piece underneath the chandelier in the Atrium ...

In the Grand Georgian Ballroom, we installed various elements of floral decor including table centrepieces and number of oversized 'branchy' pieces made of curly willow, orchids and our glass bell lanterns!

We really appreciate Helen's quirky sense of humour ... case in point: her and Steven's fascination with Squirrels. Hilarious! They even went so far as to procure a boat-load of Squirrel Nut Zippers candy for their wedding ... apparently we missed out on these little delights as kids.

Steven made this great photo booth vignette replete with pictures of their doggies ... we hear it was a hit with guests lined up to pose!

These are the first photos I have seen of the wedding and they are unbelievable. Mark, you are uber talented! To be able not only to have the most incredible flowers imaginable but to have the most incredible friends there to share their gifts and talents with me, I couldn't have asked God for anything more perfect than that! It is rare and truly a blessing to meet people like you and I feel so blessed to be able to share the most special of days with you all. Words cannot express how I feel about everything you have done for us. I hope you know how very special you are to both Steven and I. Thank you so much.
