Bride and Groom, Lori + Roy, are creative, theatrical types ... we were hooked when she shared her ideas for a 'speakeasy' inspired affair that took cues from the prohibition era of the 1920's and early 1930's!
To garner inspiration, we dreamed about bird cages and nests, shoeshine boys, cigar & cigarettes, crooked gamblers, bobby cops and The Cotton Club!
We designed in bold colours (black, white, red) and florals that were feminine and textural (black and ivory lace in layers) ... garden roses, orchids, dahlias.
Complete with bird cage veil, fascinators, Marcel Wave and bob updos these flapper styled ladies looked amazing! So did the fellas ... all decked out in top hats and tails!
Cheers and best wishes to Lori + Roy ... we had a lot of fun designing for your Wedding Day!!

This weekend, Lauren + David were married in Niagara on the Lake ... we were excited to work at two of our favourite venues ... Queen's Landing and St. Mark's Anglican Church.
This little town is so full of interest and charm that it naturally enhances any wedding here ... take, for instance, the 19th century fife and drum corps parade we experienced marching down the centre of Queen St. - where else are you going to experience THAT?!?!
Lauren's colour palette was based on our 'Charm
' palette plus white and a touch of darker pink. Very soft, romantic and flow-y. The reception flowers showcased deeper medium pink tones.
We designed primarily with dahlias, pink piano garden roses, pink spray roses and some 'gardeny bits' including delicate fern fronds, astilbe and scented geranium foliage from our studio's organic cutting gardens.
Lauren's bridal bouquet included heavenly-scented gardenias ...
Bride Lauren has a thing for birds ... so we dreamt up a twiggy tree installation for her that featured these cute little birds in nests, white orchids and some of our handmade pottery vessels!
P.S. > We actually rescued these real Robin's nests from our gardens this spring ... you just never know what you'll need a bird's nest for! :) (No robins were harmed ... don't worry!).
Cheers and best wishes to Lauren + David ... it was a pleasure designing the florals for your wedding!
