The *Made with Love* Project Short Film

We're so excited to finally share the latest film project we've just finished  ... we call it 'Made with Love' !!!

While we were dreaming this all up, we became focused on some specific words and phrases such as ... 'local', 'heirloom', 'hand-made', 'authentic', 'community', 'nature', 'living in the moment' ... we followed our heart and really let these words become our mantra to guide us through this project.

Be sure to check out the Made with Love Project photos as well.

On most creative projects like this one, many, many hours are spent crafting a space to perfection so as to be pristinely captured for publication and then, quicker than it went up, it's all torn down and packed away and everyone runs back to their busy lives! There's something that just feels wrong about that ... so, this time around, we felt it was really important that those involved get to enjoy the fruits of our labour and share the joy of the moment!  So, at the end of day with all of our hard work behind us, we invited a few friends to join us as we sat down for dinner + drinks!

At it's heart, Made with Love is a story about beauty, friendship, connection and kindred spirits ... it's a story that is about more than just a theme or colour scheme ... it’s about more than a schedule of events or formalities and pretense.

Certainly it's about engaging the senses and creating a setting full of discovery and beauty ... but it’s also about all of the little details that have a way of bringing people closer together to celebrate our togetherness!

This story was Made with Love and the creative gifts of a few good friends ...

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!

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! :)
