Ariel + Andrew’s Anthropologie inspired wedding at Inn on the Twenty

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

Okay, we've got a bit of a different post for you this time ... all you wedding purists might want to hang on to your seats! ;)

When we first met with our bride, Ariel, she told us that she didn’t want her wedding to *feel* like a wedding. She said she loved the store Anthropologie! We're big Anthropologie fans and we decided to get involved a little bit more with the staging aspect of her wedding ... the fabrics, pillows and the antiques ... all the lovely, lovely details! 

It turns out that we've got this old yellow couch (it generally resides on our deck at home) that was sort of one of the main things that started the whole ball rolling ... that’s really where the idea for all the antiques and vintage details started to come into play. We used a lot of custom pillows and hand-sewn birds in the curly willow trees we created ... complete with actual bird's nests that we rescued from the garden this spring. We also designed a flag garland that uses the same fabric as the napkins (which we had commissioned specifically for the wedding). We also had a local potter create some of the mini white vessels for the flowers.  And, of course, canning jars were everywhere with flowers and candles in them!

The flowers were mainly all yellow ... we used garden roses, local dahlias, a lot of herbs from the garden, lavender, lavender foliage, camomile and yarrow ... a lot of very local things that were coming up out of the ground at that time of the year.

We were really excited about designing this wedding because it’s really different than what you’d normally see or expect at a wedding. It was the ‘un-wedding’! The bride and groom were very focused on just creating a comfortable atmosphere for their guests and we're all about that!

Most of these photos were captured by the imaginative team at Nataschia Wielink Photography ... we're so excited to share them with you!

A special shout out to Vineyard Sweets in Niagara-on-the-Lake for this spectacular, spectacular, spectacular 'stack of books' wedding cake! Uh. May. Zing.

We can't finish this post without paying homage to the infamous yellow couch that started it all. It's kinda funny how the inspiration for a whole wedding can come from a singular yellow couch. It's amusing.

Ever wonder how all those lovely details from your favourite weddings get put together?  

We worked with the super creative Mike Enns of Enns Visuals to put together a short film giving you a little 'behind the scenes' view on how Ariel + Andrew's Anthropologie 'un-wedding' wedding was created! Mike bascially followed us around, filming our every move, documenting a day in the life of Mimosa Flower Studio.

And to think ... it all started with a yellow couch!

Heather + Peter at Burlington Golf and Country Club

Heather + Peter were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the Burlington Bay at Burlington Golf and Country Club ... what a beautiful day! Immediately after the ceremony, guests were invited for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.

Heather's colour paletted featured 'Glow' in shades of yellow with an accent of white and silvery pewter.
 
We designed this wedding using orchids, gloriosa, yellow garden roses and white macrphylla hydrangeas ... with touches of sculptural curly willow for some textural fun!
 
Here's a picture of Heather's yellow bridal bouquet finished in pewter ribbon with an under-looped collar ...

Loved these lucite chiavari chairs ... looked fab with the silvery pewter linens!

Each of the reception centrepieces was one of two different heights of tall glass with a full floral arrangement and an accent of curly willow at the top and as a cascade. A little handful of rough grey gravel in the bottom of the glass vessel tied it together nicely!

Here's the sketch we did for Heather + Peter ...

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!

Reanne + Dan’s Winery Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

This weekend Reanne + Dan were married in an afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony in the headlands of the beautiful Etherington Estate vineyards, one of the many Cave Spring Cellars vineyards on the Beamville Bench wine appellation of Niagara.

It was the most perfect wedding weekend of the spring so far this year ... a beautiful vineyard setting, sunny and breezy, and, of course, delicious flowers!

We designed in our 'Glow' palette featuring predominately yellow flowers with all the coordinating napkins and other elements (such as the fans, favours, bridesmaid's dresses, etc.) all in gorgeous eggplant purple!

Flowers consisted of garden and standard roses, gerberas, craspedia, orchids, snaps, callas,  and gardeny bits such as heuchera leaves, japanese painted fern, mint and scented geranium from our own organic cutting gardens!

The very natural and organic look was completed by some awesome wooden slabs we sliced up from reclaimed local locust tree stumps and the cutest little white ceramic vessels!!
