Christina + George at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Christina + George tied the knot in an afternoon wedding ceremony in the Atrium at Queen's Landing in lovely downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake! Afterward, guests were invited for evening cocktails and to celebrate with them in the Imperial Ballroom over dinner!

Pale tones of blush and ivory with accents of pale peach, light creamy yellow and pale lavender were all in the colour palette for the day. A very modern vintage / English garden theme featuring lace, chargers, brown chiavari chairs, mercury and clear footed glass.

Blooms included peonies (of course!!!), roses, delphiniums, lilacs, ranunculus and ... wait for it ... baby's breath! Yup, it's baaack.

We had a ton of fun designing the ceremony in the Atrium ... the couple provided the oh-so-cute Hers & His night tables that we incorporated.

The centrepieces were a mix of short full floral compotes (flanked by our Dutz glass candlesticks with ivory pillar candles) and tall Venture glassware capped with a full floral underlaid with mercury glass votives.

Lori + Roy at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Bride and Groom, Lori + Roy, are creative, theatrical types ... we were hooked when she shared her ideas for a 'speakeasy' inspired affair that took cues from the prohibition era of the 1920's and early 1930's!

To garner inspiration, we dreamed about bird cages and nests, shoeshine boys, cigar & cigarettes, crooked gamblers, bobby cops and The Cotton Club!

We designed in bold colours (black, white, red) and florals that were feminine and textural (black and ivory lace in layers) ... garden roses, orchids, dahlias.

Lindsay + Will at Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club

This weekend we travelled up the 400 to the little town of Port Carling in Muskoka Lakes to work with Anne Anderson Events on Lindsay + Will's wedding at Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club! 

Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club opened 90 years ago in 1922 and today members can reserve the waterfront Clubhouse for private parties and weddings ... needless to say, the view was spectacular! (The Clubhouse is built right out over the water and is totally surrounded by glass!)

The look and feel for the day was what you might call 'Upscale Muskoka' ... cottage resort glamour with varied organic and natural elements such as jute, cork, willow, barnboard/wood and glass.

The colour palette for the reception space was ivory, pale blush, deep olive green, slate grey and medium pink. We had a separate colour palette for the outdoor signature drink bar area which featured green, white and pale yellow.

We created and installed a couple of massive 12ft tall trees spanning the space where the wedding cake would later sit and helping to divide the lounge area from the dance floor/band space.

Blooms included garden roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, dahlias, lamb's ear, ranunculus and absolute ton of our 'gardeny bits' including raspberry foliage, mint, geranium and bloomed-out clematis vine. Moss and succulents also made an appearance!

Janine + Roberto at Good Earth Food and Wine Co. (featured on Style Me Pretty)

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!

"Fortunato in amore, fortunato nella vita. Siamo molto benedetti."  (Translates to "fortunate in love, fortunate in life … we are very blessed!")

When the summer heat hits its peak, wise Italians escape the city and head to the country to join their loved ones for the mid-summer festival of Ferragosto on August 15. This was the inspiration for Janine + Roberto's Ferragosto wedding among the vineyards at Good Earth Food and Wine Co. in Niagara’s wine country.

The wedding ceremony was held in a verdant meadow under century old willow and sugar maple trees. Our nieces and nephews helped out in the religious service with a rousing responsorial psalm and handmade alleluia signs. The groom’s papa led the guests in reciting an Italian version of the Our Father – Il Padre Nostro. The ceremony ended with a prosecco toast: viva gli sposi! and we were deluged with handfuls of rice thrown from every direction. 

As the sun was setting behind the orchard, guests strolled toward the winery bistro alongside the vineyard. The communal dinner table was waiting under the pergola, softly lit by sparkling crystal chandeliers and votives in a combination of mercury glass and custom hand-sewn vintage fabric sleeves in tones of muted mauve, pale lavender and mulled grape. 

The last word goes to Janine + Roberto's five-year old nephew who whispered into the groom's ear: “Zio, can I tell you something?” “Yes, Ryan, what is it?” “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been to. It’s only the first wedding I’ve ever been to, but it’s the best!” 

This wedding was perfectly captured by our good friend and uber-talented wedding photographer Nataschia Wielink!

Kendra + Chris at Inn on the Twenty

Kendra + Chris were married outdoors in the hazy vineyards of Cave Spring Cellars on the Beamsville Bench nestled in the Niagara Escarpment!

We designed their florals primarily in white and soft green with accents of caramel, soft blush and soft lavender using annabelle and peegee hydrangeas,  dahlias, lisianthus and various gardeny cuttings from our Studio's organic gardens.

We paired our florals with a host of textural elements including long barnboard pieces, mason jars and curly willow all on a lacey overlay over oyster hued linen. Soft, vintage and natural.

We worked with The Warehouse to bring in various antique and casual elements to complete the look!

Thanks to Nat – the oh-so-talented image guru – at Nataschia Wielink Photo + Cinema for these images that captured the day to perfection!
