This past weekend, Lynn + Mike celebrated their Niagara winery wedding ceremony and reception at the always wonderful Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara on the Lake.
Outdoor weddings in Niagara are always fantastic … but getting married out among the winery vineyards in full view of the Niagara Escarpment is truly a memorable experience unique to Niagara's wine country!
Lynn's colour palette featured predominately yellows and golds with bold teal and peacock blue accents. To accomplish the floral design for Lynn + Mike, we used white hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, orchids and some lady's mantle plucked right from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio.
This wedding was full of gorgeous eye-candy including the gold chiavari chairs and sheer overlays, the paper lanterns, custom chopstick wedding favours, stunning stationery and the fantabulous cake by Cake Opera Co.
Congrats and best wishes to Lynn + Mike ... we loved being a part of your wedding celebration!!!

This weekend we were so excited to design the flowers for Kendra + Miles' destination wedding at Riverbend Inn & Vineyard in Niagara on the Lake!
Kendra and Miles have Canadian roots, but both now call London, UK home. We haven't had a chance to work at the Riverbend since last wedding season, but it is definitely one of our fave wedding venues in Niagara on the Lake. The views across the vineyards are simply spectacular ... as is the gorgeous Inn itself!
We were also loving the crisp and clean pale blue, deep eggplant and lavender colour palette ... it was simply delicious and suited the environs to absolute perfection! There's just something so special about an outdoor wedding in Niagara's wine country ... you can't put words to it ... you just have to experience it for yourself.
Our congratulations to Kendra + Miles ... we wish you many blessings in your married life!
The bride’s bouquet was hand-tied (as all our bouquets are!) and featured some of the most beautiful dahlias we've experienced in a long, long time!
Kendra + Miles' outdoor wedding ceremony took place on the back lawn at The Rivebend Inn, just in front of their white-washed gazebo. The views to the north, across the vineyards, are simply spectacular!!
The tented outdoor wedding reception consisted of multiple 16ft long tablescapes. We created our table top design using clusters of dahlias and potted lavender plants in cute white ceramic vessels (affectionately known as 'eggs' around the studio) interspersed with plenty of candlelight in some gorgeous new hand-blown glass containers. So many lovely little details to share ... it's all in the details!!!

Carmen + Andy were wed this past weekend and celebrated their Niagara wedding ceremony at the historic (and oh-so-cute!) Balls Falls Chapel in Niagara’s Twenty Valley region. After their wedding chapel ceremony, Carmen + Andy hosted an evening dinner reception for their guests in the Windows Room at the nearby Inn on the Twenty on Main Street in quaint Jordan Village.
Their wedding colour palette was ‘Shade’ featuring blue hydrangea, burgundy cordeline, white roses, green amaranthus and callas.
We also found these really spectacular white mini pumpkins which added a really seasonal eclectic touch to the reception centerpieces! A beautiful day for a beautiful couple!
The girl’s bouquets …
The Balls Falls Chapel is the cutest little wedding chapel in Niagara …
The Windows Room overlooks the Twenty Valley below Balls Falls ... it's a spectacular view in the autumn!
We created this Manzanita branch 'Wishing Tree' for Carmen + Andy's guests to leave their well-wishes for the newly married couple!
