If you've been following us for a while, you know that we absolutely love colour ... so we were pretty excited to take full advantage of a palette featuring shades of purple, magenta, orchid and blush tones for Ruby + Ty's Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding at Queen's Landing.
We employed very seasonal flowers such as tulips and muscari and combined them with lushious english garden roses, super-stunning Vanda orchids and loads of mokara orchid sprays ... just dripping with beauty!
Ruby was all smiles ... it was contagious! She looked oh-so fabulous ...
The reception centerpieces were half tall full-florals perched a top a glistening glass vase and half short full-florals flanked by twin glass candlesticks.
Ruby + Ty ... we wish you every blessing in your marriage journey ... it was such a pleasure to design the flowers for your wedding day!!!

This weekend we gathered up the Mimosa Team and headed up the 400 to King City for Chloe + Herbert's wedding ceremony and reception at the lovely King Valley Golf Club.
Confessional moment: We'd never heard of King City before now ... but that's some gorgeous country up there!
We absolutely love colour and so does Chloe ... so we punched it up a notch and took full advantage of a palette featuring intense shades of cobalt blue, magenta, deep pink, deep purple and fucshia tones.
Our chuppah canopy was just dripping with loads of vanda and mokara orchids, the venue was draped in silvery linens and the bridesmaids rocked it in pretty blue patterned dresses with black ruffled boleros!
To accomplish this rich and romantic look, we used plenty of dazzling Yves Paiget garden roses, deep purple vanda orchids, hydrangea blooms in blue and purple as well as purple mokaras ... virtually no foliage anywhere!
Our beautiful bride Chloe was accompanied down the aisle by her dad ... check out that dress! Sigh.
We layered orchid stems to create dripping panicles of blooms on our chuppah/canopy frame ... they almost look like wisteria!
The centrepieces at the reception were a mix of short full florals (flanked with tall glass candlesticks and swirl glass vessels) and tall full florals perched a top a vase with submersed purple vanda orchids!
The coolest idea ever .... hire a caricature artist to hang out with your wedding guests for a couple of hours during cocktails!!!
We wish Chloe + Herbert every blessing in their marriage journey ... it was such a pleasure to design the flowers for your wedding day!!!

Michelle + Shawn tied the knot in an afternoon wedding ceremony in the Atrium at Queen's Landing in lovely downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake! Later on, guests were invited back for evening cocktails and to celebrate with them in the Imperial Ballroom over dinner!
Deep purple, rose, champagne, burgundy and muted magenta were all in the colour palette for the day. A very modern vintage theme featuring classic glassware and pewter accents such as our hammered-rim votive holders, pewter linens and silver chiavari chairs.
Blooms included purple vandas, dazzling dahilias, roses, picasso callas, white and antique green hydrangeas, curly willow and toad lily plucked straight from our studio's organic cutting gardens!

Michelle + Shawn's afternoon wedding ceremony took place in the Atrium at Queen's Landing ...
The centrepieces at the reception in the Imperial Ballroom featured our classic glassware with a full floral arrangement at the top. Soft and romantic ... with few purple vanda orchids submersed in water and pewter rimmed votive candles at the base of each. Pewter linens and chiavari chairs by Simply Beautiful Décor.
A half-dozen of our twiggy lanterns were positioned around the Imperial Ballroom to add to the vintage charm ...

Congratulations to Lucy + Paul who were wed this weekend in an afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony in Oakville. It was a blisteringly hot day out ... there was not a cloud in the sky! A perfect summer day in July.
We were excited to design the organic, texture-laden, earthy and informal flowers for the ceremony and reception. The colour palette followed shades of medium pink, silver/grey, white, deep taupe and blush.
We brought in so much texture by using Manzanita branches, curly willow, hydrangeas, garden roses, calla lilies, orchids, celosia, dusty miller, air plants, pink protea and Hens 'n Chicks (fresh picked from our studio cutting garden!!!).
Lucy's bridal bouquet ... pretty in pink ... love, love, love the Hens 'n Chicks in there!!!
The centrepieces were a mix of tall and short full-floral pieces with our signature glass candlesticks and ivory pillar candles.

In September we spent three days producing a suite of five different 'scenes' to inspire and excite you about all the dreamy possibilities for your wedding ... we're over the moon to finally be able to share them with you!
For this 'High Tea' inspired scene, we're featuring the heavenly yellow hues of our 'Glow' palette and the sexy hourglass shapes and classic glass designs of our 'Perennial' collection.
Luscious blooms of yellow gloriosa, garden roses, dahlias, orchids, Queen Anne's lace, hydrangea and delicate camomile pair well with raspberry foliage and mint plucked from our organic cutting gardens.
We even brought out our antique white bone china tea set for the occasion!
