Sarah + Greg at The Observatory (Spencers at the Waterfront)

We had a lot of fun dreaming up, designing and installing the florals and elements for Sarah + Greg's wedding in The Observatory at Spencer's at the Waterfront in Burlington on the north shore of Lake Ontario!

The Observatory is a relatively new venue with gianormous floor to ceiling glass windows (nearly 20ft high) overlooking Lake Ontario, right on Burlington's revitalized waterfront ... the space and view are magnificent!

Sarah's floral colour palette showcased shades of green, grey, stone, ivory and white in a very natural and organic fashion.

Elements and flowers included birch branches and birch bark, cork, flagstone, moss, succulents, jute, pods, ferns, anemones, antique hydrangea, ranunculus, dusty miller and host of other textural bits and pieces!

The ceiling in The Observatory is amazing, but very, very high ... so we created and installed a couple of nearly 20ft tall 'birch' trees that were covered in moss, succulents and dripping with warm candlelight!

Francesca + Ryan at Knollwood

It was so satisfying to finally bring all the deliciousness of Francesca + Ryan's wedding to life this weekend after working the better part of a year with the couple (who are soooo AWESOME) and Melissa from One Fine Day Event Planning to dream it up and give it legs!!!

One thing you need to know about Francesca + Ryan ... they put an incredible amount of creative energy into their big day ... this might actually be a bit of an understatment! From the custom wedding stationery (designed and printed by Ryan) to the wedding cake (designed and created by Francesca) they were beyond knee-deep in the details.

We crafted all the florals and provided design and theme consulting for things like the vintage details, outdoor lounge (kudos to The Warehouse) and room decor as well!

The end result was simply amazing ... and not just because of the details, but because these two love-birds finally said "I do" ... as they were meant too all along.

Francesca + Ryan are very serious about sweets!  Francesca created her own amazing wedding cake ... and the home-baked goods abounded ... plentifully! (Confessional Moment: we sampled a few!)

One tree done two ways ...

Ever since we debuted our new custom-fabricated artisan metal trees at The Wedding Co. Show in January, we've had an amazing response!

Just imagine exchanging your wedding vows under a couple of these jaw-dropping trees ... indoors or out ... they'd be absolutely magnificent!!!  Or how about we use it to create a statement piece in the lobby, atrium, bar or lounge area of your event space ... they could be simply bare or absolutely loaded with foliage, branches or flowers of any colour ... it's also height adjustable!

For The Wedding Co. Show, we loaded this tree with nearly 300 stems of tangerine mokara orchids, hanging glass candle-lit lanterns and delicate handcrafted glass butterflies.

At the recent Vintage Hotels Wedding Show, we wanted to show a different way to use our trees ... so, we layered birch branches, camillia foliage and tangering mokara orchids to create an intimate canopy over a sweet-heart table for two! 

Simple. Beautiful. Lovely.

Sarah + Daniel at Legends on the Niagara

Sarah + Daniel tied the knot in a late afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony on the Terrace at Legends on the Niagara. Cocktails immediately followed the ceremony and later in the evening, guests enjoyed an evening dinner reception with the newlyweds!

Sarah's floral colour palette featured a mix of our Glow and Bliss palettes in shades of yellow, buttercup and cream with accents of peach, blush and salmon particularly evident in the bridesmaid's bouquets and dresses.

We designed using some dazzling yellow garden roses, yellow craspedia, white orchids and hydrangeas, dahlias, delicate cammomile, gloriosa blooms and oodles of gardeny bits such as mint and raspberry foliage from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio!

These custom-built Twiggy lantern 'street lights' made of birch poles looked absolutely awesome with the natural stone and wood elements in the room and on the terrace at Legends!

Erinn + Matthew at Inn on the Twenty in Jordan

All week long, we had beautiful weather in Niagara's wine country ... finally!!! And then, suddenly, the weather gods were again displeased for some reason and sent us rain on wedding Saturday!!!  In some ways, rain is good ... it certainly makes for a better party because the guests seem to stick closer together, as if bound by nature!

In spite of the weather ups and downs, Erinn + Matt's wedding marched on and it was a wonderful affair!  After celebrating their marriage ceremony at the Cave Spring Vineyard Retreat, guests were invited back to The Windows Room at Inn on the Twenty on Main Street in Jordan Village to wine and dine the night away.

Erinn's color palette was 'Forest' featuring shots of caramel and butter with accidental indigo, deep pink and mango tones and loads of texture. 

To accomplish the 'look and feel', we designed with green mums, garden roses, viburnum, hydrangea, cobra lilies and gardeny bits (from our Studio's organic cutting gardens!) including mint, heuchera and japanese painted fern.

Congratulations and best wishes to Erinn + Matt ... we loved being part of your wedding day!!!

Erinn + Matt did such a great job on their stationery, we just had to show it to you!  It's the attention to the details (like stationery) that can really tie the whole day together!
