Rubina + Andrew at Inn on the Twenty

Rubina + Andrew were married in a vineyard in the heart of Niagara's bountiful wine country and then celebrated with their guests in the magnificent 'hidden gem' at Inn on the Twenty formally known as the Vintner's Cellar!

Loads of beauty that featured a long communal table for 50, bunches and bunches of mokara orchids, red garden roses, dahlias and a virtual floatilla of rose petals all under the auspices of the dramatically romantic tones of our Passion pallet ... rich red, deep burgundy and midnight black!!!

We so loved being a part of this intimate affair!

Kathryn + Jeremy at Vineland Estates Winery

As you know, we're quite fond of design weddings at Vineland Estates Winery ... it's just one of those gorgeous, intimate Niagara winery properties that we simply cannot get enough of!!!

This weekend, Kathryn + Jeremy were married on the north deck at Vineland Estates and broke bread with their guests afterward, dining together over a superb multi-course dinner in The Carriage House prepared by Executive Chef Justin Downes. 

We were pretty excited to design the rough-luxe centrepieces for their reception! (see below for a complete description!)

It poured rain all morning, but cleared up beautifully just in time for Kathryn + Jeremy to tie the knot ... we're so happy to have been part of their Big Day!!

To achieve the 'rough-luxe' look for these centrepieces, we started with a piece of flagstone (yes, a rock!) and built up around the trinity of glass and floating candles using cream and natural coloured florals, miniature ferns, moss and cuttings (from our Studio's organic cutting gardens) such Japanese painted fern, herbs (mint and oregano), Lady's Mantle and scented geranium!

Blessings to Kathryn + Jeremy as they begin their marriage journey ... they certainly kicked it off in style!!

15 of our favourite bridal bouquets ... part 3

Before all of this fabulous spring weather we've been having recently, we started our look back at some of the best moments of the last year's wedding season!  Here's part 3 in the series of our favourite bridal bouquets from last wedding season ... enjoy!

 

Luscious Bride's Bouquet ...

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

Alyssa + Jay's wedding was jam packed with luscious and intense colour ... bright and bold tones of deep pink, red and burgundy ... the girls wore stunning peacock blue dresses! A feast for the eyes.

The floral colours borrowed heavily from our ‘Spirit’ palette and featured oodles and oodles of peonies, garden roses, orchids and pink hydrangea ... mmmmm.

See the whole wedding here.

Mid-Summer Night's Dream Inspired Bouquet ...

Muted tones of blush, butter, light purple, ivory and soft green were the colour palette for the big day ... a very Mid-Summer Night's Dream feel! The bride was so excited about her bridal bouquet and gushed about how 'we must've read her mind' ... we love it when that happens!!! :))

We used soft and romantic blooms such as garden roses, antique green and white hydrangeas, blushing bride, pieres and even some seasonal mint foliage, japanese painted fern fronds and variegated hosta leaves from our organic cutting gardens!

Earthy + Textural Bride's Bouquet ...

The color palette for this wedding was 'Forest' featuring shots of caramel and butter with accidental indigo, deep pink and mango tones and loads of texture. 

To accomplish the 'look and feel', we designed with green mums, garden roses, viburnum, hydrangea, cobra lilies and gardeny bits (from our Studio's organic cutting gardens!) including mint, heuchera and japanese painted fern.

Modern Vintage Bridal Bouquet ...

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!

The *Made with Love* Bouquet ...

While we were dreaming up our most recent photo / film shoot, we were really 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.

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.

See the whole photoshoot here or watch the short film we made!

Bold + Beautiful Bouquet ...

We absolutely love colour ... for Chloe + Herbert's wedding we really 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.

Flirty + Fragrant Bridal Bouquet ...

The dreamy tones of our 'Glow' palette featuring soft yellow, ivory and cognac set the mood for this wedding, while the garden roses, white hydrangeas, tulips, heaven-scented lily of the valley and peonies did all the heavy lifting design wise!

Organic + Textural Bride's Bouquet ...

We were excited to design the organic, texture-laden, earthy and informal flowers for this wedding.  The colour palette followed shades of medium pink, silver/grey, white, deep taupe and blush.

We brought in so much texture by using 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!!!).

Pretty in pink ... love, love, love the Hens 'n Chicks in there!!!

Purple Bride's Bouquet ...

Purple was still a huge colour in 2011 ... this wedding featured hues from our 'Breeze' colour palette ... mainly purple with acents of green and white/cream and a touch of butter.

Flowers we designed with included green and white hydrangeas, stunning purple Vanda orchid blooms, dahlias, roses and pieris. Quirky elements included cork logs, Manzanita branches, giant slabs of walnut and canning jars with oodles of glass candlelight!

The Jonathan Adler Inspired Bouquet ...

In the last summer of 2011 we worked with Cynthia Martyn Events Inc. to put together a wedding day design inspired by a favoured designer (Cynthia chose famed housewares and accessories designer Jonathan Adler as her muse)  

The feature appears in the Winter/Spring 2012 issue of WedLuxe Magazine ... pages 68 - 70.

15 of our favourite bridal bouquets ... part 1

It that time of the year when we look back at the best moments of the last year's wedding season!  We're going to start with some of our favourite bridal bouquets from 2011 ... enjoy!

Classic + Romantic White Bouquet ...

Here's a fun fact: our bride Andrea is a wee bit famous! You might have seen her on Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds and Blue Bloods ... or you might know her best as Dennis Leary's ex Janet Gavin on Rescue Me. Andrea is originally from Southern Ontario and she flew back to Niagara from LA to tie the knot with her producer fiancé, Todd Biermann.

Flowers in her predominately white bouquet included lavender foliage, white calla lilies, garden roses, freesia and white lisianthus .. we wrapped and pinned the stem with a length of lace.

See the whole wedding here.

The Sentimental Bridal Bouquet ...

The colour palette for this bouquet features muted tones of soft purples, greens, blush, soft white and champagne ... a very modern vintage 'Anthropologie' type feel.

Beth's bridal bouquet wins the award for the most sentimental bouquet of 2011 ... the antique lace we wrapped around the stem of her bouquet 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 in the year.

Taking parts of the past into a new future ... it's heart warming! :)
