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.

Earth + Textural Purple Bouquet ...

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

The flowers in Ariel's bridal bouquet were purple local dahlias, lavender, lavender foliage, butterfly bush and japanese painted fern from our organic cutting gardens here at the Studio. The stem was wrapped in jute with a handmade ceramic button finishing it all off!

Sunny Yellow Bride's Bouquet ...

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

Reanne's bridal bouquet in yellow featured a special pendant detailing on the stem!

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! :)

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 ...

Alyssa + Jay at Inn on the Twenty in Jordan

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

Alyssa + Jay were wed this past weekend and celebrated their Niagara wedding ceremony at the Cave Spring Cellars Vineyard Retreat on the Niagara Escarpment. After the ceremony, Alyssa + Jay hosted an evening dinner reception for their guests in the Windows Room at the nearby Inn on the Twenty on Main Street in quaint Jordan Village.

This 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.

Alyssa's bridal bouquet was one of our favourites coming out of the studio this weekend ...

We had so much fun designing these reception centrepieces ... the silver vessels reflected the hues from the linens, the blooms and the twinkling candlelight!  Each centrepiece was packed full of heavenly blooms of peonies, garden roses and orchids ... the Windows Room was dazzling!

The look and feel for the day was soft, local, romantic with mason jars, cork logs and slices of birch and walnut slabs ... sort of a Northern California meets Niagara feel!
