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!

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!

The Sugar Shack Canadiana Inspired Wedding

A sugar shack is not just a space where maple syrup is crafted .. it's also a traditional Canadian gathering place that houses wonderful memories, and age old traditions. It's simply the perfect setting for an early spring Canadian wedding!

We were excited to be involved in this 'concept shoot' for an intimate wedding at Crinklaw’s Sugar Shack ... an ideal setting for a sweet early spring love fest!

Bright orange tins filled to the brim with sugary maple sap provided the inspiration for the colour palette. Tangerine became our base colour and paired nicely with rustic caramel, a bold Canadian red and creamy vanilla. The custom stationary products also added a playful touch to this fete!

In keeping with the heritage vibe of this rustic setting, vintage elements such as snow shoes, copper pots and gold plated china were paired with the bride’s fun and lively, knee grazing BHLDN dress.

Pedestal vases arranged with soft and fuzzy spring pussy willows flanked the old wooden front door. Inside the cozy shack, raw wooden beams and a crackling fireplace provided the ideal atmosphere for a sweetheart table that was topped with a cheery vintage tablecloth. The tabletop was overflowing with delicate poppies, whimsical ranunculus and lush roses.

Beth + Adam’s Niagara Winery Wedding

Beth + Adam were wed in an outdoor Niagara winery wedding on a breezy and cool September Sunday afternoon! After the ceremony, guests were invited to an evening dinner reception in the converted barn at Hernder Estate Winery in St. Catharines. The winery’s barn is a grand structure of stone, wood and glass and lends a very rustic feel to a wedding celebration in Niagara’s wine country

Beth's colour palette for the big day featured muted tones of soft purples, greens, blush, soft white and champagne ... a very modern vintage 'Anthropologie' type feel.

We design the florals using roses, hydrangeas (purple, annabelle and antique), dahlias, lisianthus and all kinds of gardeny bits such as sedum 'autumn joy', mint, herbs, lavender foliage. Other textural and off-the-beaten-path elements included succulents, cork bark, various wooden 'slices', canning jars and burlap runners (provided by the bride). 

Beth's bridal bouquet wins the award for the most sentimental bouquet of 2011 ... the antique lace we wrapped the stem of her bouquet in was part of her mother's own wedding dress. As well, the gold heart locket wrapped around the stem was given to Beth by her father before he passed away earlier this year. Taking parts of the past into a new future ... it's heart warming! :)

Julia + David’s Niagara Winery Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

Oh how we love autumn weddings in Niagara's wine country ... we're so lucky to live and work here! Fall is definitely our favourite time of the year for weddings ... the intensity of colours ... the smell of plump grapes waiting to be harvested ... there's nothing like it!

This weekend, we designed the flowers for Julia + David's vineyard wedding ceremony and their dinner reception which followed at the lovely Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in Jordan.

We were working with very 'modern vintage' palette featuring muted and antique shades of lavender and purple, muted mulberry, blush, blue, tan and sage green. To accomplish this very relaxed and assorted look, we used fluffy flowers like dahlias and antique green hydrangeas, as well as seeded eucalyptus and all sorts of gardeny goodness!!

The lacy detailing on Julia's bridal bouquet is the perfect tell-tale sign of the 'modern vintage' feel we were going for ...

Shannon + Kirk: Niagara on the Lake Wedding at Pillar and Post

Shannon + Kirk tied the knot this past weekend and celebrated in style at the lovely Pillar and Post (one of the Vintage Hotels) in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario! It was a perfect May Saturday afternoon to get married in Niagara's wine country.

Bliss was the colour palette for the day ... featuring muted tones of antique green, ivory, warm blush and light peach. To achieve this 'modern vintage' look, we chose flowers that have a particular rustic, heritage appeal ... garden and standard roses, dahlias, antique green hydrangea and peonies! We piled on the old-world charm by incorporating fern fronds, heuchera and even some oregano sprigs from our organic cutting gardens!

We're crazy about the details ... we tied in this funky custom-made ceramic 'button' detail to Shannon's bouquet stem. Something borrowed, something blue ...
