Lynn + Mike at Chateau des Charmes Winery

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!!!

corporate event at chateau des charmes winery

On Saturday night we had the pleasure of designing a 64ft long tablescape for a corporate excursion dinner at Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake ... we had so much fun with this!  

We were designing a very "Old World" look for this special dinner ... naturally, we pulled out our cork logs, acacia balls, mason jars with votive candles and some really awesome green swirl vessels. And our Twiggy lanterns were an absolute must to add some ambience to this outdoor event! The linens featured a deep merlot with gold filigree accent and moss napkins. 

For the floral colour palette, we designed in deep yellow, orange/gold and moss green using garden roses, oncidium orchids, pin-cushion protea, green hydrangeas, succulents, leucadendron and fresh moss. 

Special thanks to Kim and Catherine at Strategic Meetings Solutions for giving us the freedom to flex our creative muscles!

Best Wedding Bouquets of 2010 ... Part 3

Here's the next installment in the 'Best Wedding Bouquets of 2010' album. This will be it for a few weeks ... we're taking a little time off. In the meantime, enjoy these love stories from our <i>'Best Wedding Bouquets of 2010</i> album! Turn up the thermostat ... baby, it's cold outside. Ciao for now!

Sara + Helena were married in an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony by the pond at the foot of the Niagara Escarpement in the Cave Spring Vineyards ... it was a perfect October afternoon in Niagara's wine country! We could help but fall in love with the texture of the flowers and the intensity of the jewel tones in this palette ... this bridal bouquet was unbelievable!!!

Jo-Anne + Sean sealed the deal in a late afternoon ceremony at the Cave Springs Vineyard Retreat and invited their guests to a dinner reception which followed at the lovely Windows Room upstairs at Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in Jordan. Jo-Anne's bridal bouquet ... ahhhh. We ALL loved this one ... Fire is definitely a favourite!

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!

Back in August, we designed 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. Kendra's bridal 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!

Christine + David: Winery Wedding at Chateau des Charmes in Niagara on the Lake

Christine + David's yummy yellow and grey themed wedding took place under the tent at Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara on the Lake this holiday long weekend! What a beautiful day it was to celebrate Niagara nuptials ... love was in the air and not humidity!!

The colour palette of the flowers was yellow with hits of lime green and the punch was provided by the pewtery grey linens and black chair covers ... mod glamour with a rustic touch! 

These Gardenias in Christine's bouquet smelled amazing! They're so dainty and delicate ...

The tall centerpieces ... mix of birch branches and full florals ... helped scale the size of the tent and bring some weight to the reception space!

Kimberley + Les: Winery Wedding at Chateau des Charmes in Niagara on the Lake

This past weekend, Kim + Les celebrated their Niagara winery wedding ceremony and reception at the famed 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!

Kim's colour palette was a little bit ‘Breeze’ with emphasis on shades of light purple. To accomplish the design for Kim and Les, we used hydrangeas, roses, peonies, lisianthus and calla lilies.

To complete the 'wine' theme, we included green globe grapes in the centerpieces and even designed the place cards to be displayed in wine corks!  

The bride’s bouquet was hand-tied (as all our bouquets are!) in shades of purple, wrapped in saddle-stitched grosgrain ribbon and accented with our gold pin finish!

The reception space looked fabulous all decked out with gold chiavari chairs and white linen with gold stripe sheer overlay. It was a perfect marriage of elements ... flowers, linens, stationery and even the cute paper lanterns hanging from ceiling of the tent!
