Andrea + Jeff: Wed in Niagara on the Lake Wine Country

What a weekend for love!!! The weather was near perfect, the venues and vendors we worked with were amazing and, if you don't mind us saying, the flowers were fantastic as well!! ;)

Calgarians Andrea + Jeff were married in the Rose Garden at Pillar and Post and later that evening hosted a celebratory dinner reception in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing in Niagara on the Lake ... two fine choices indeed!

Andrea's colour palette was a version of our Shade palette augmented with accents of grey/pewter and featuring hits of chocolate and deep purply burgundy ... cool, refreshing, upscale gardeny look with attitude! Thanks to Andrea + Jeff for indulging our passion for their wedding flowers ... best wishes!!!

Andrea's bouquet featured some cascading Amaranthus and we hand-tied in the lace detailing on the stem. The bouquet also featured raspberry, mint, lavender and fern fronds from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio!

The wedding ceremony in the Rose Garden at Pillar and Post featured our Grapevine Arbour, Shepherd's Hooks lining the aisle (with rose petals!) and twin oversized floral arrangements flanking the altar area.

The wedding party looked totally amazing ... tried our best to get some good photos, but had to dance around both the official photographer and the cinematographers!!

Christine + David: Winery Wedding at Chateau des Charmes in Niagara on the Lake

Christine + David's yummy yellow and grey themed wedding took place under the tent at Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara on the Lake this holiday long weekend! What a beautiful day it was to celebrate Niagara nuptials ... love was in the air and not humidity!!

The colour palette of the flowers was yellow with hits of lime green and the punch was provided by the pewtery grey linens and black chair covers ... mod glamour with a rustic touch! 

These Gardenias in Christine's bouquet smelled amazing! They're so dainty and delicate ...

The tall centerpieces ... mix of birch branches and full florals ... helped scale the size of the tent and bring some weight to the reception space!

Robin + Dennis: A ‘Charmed’ Niagara-on-the-Lake Wedding

So we're officially in those warm, heady days of summer and holiday weekends make for super wedding celebrations ... especially in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

Robin + Dennis tied the knot this past weekend ... outdoors overlooking the Niagara River from the deck of the Queenston Heights Restaurant in Queenston. A hop and a skip down the Niagara Parkway brought their guests to quaint Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Imperial Ballroom at Queen's Landing Hotel, where they celebrated and dined in utmost style!

The bride's 'Charmed' palette was a perfectly pretty combination of blush pink, ivory and white ... classic beauty never goes out of style. Cheers to summer weddings!

Charm is one of those palettes that brides always seem to return to ... here's an idea of the colour / texture palette we were working with.

In addition to being a unique wedding destination, Queenston Heights is also a memorial to The War of 1812 where we Canadians kicked the Americans back across the River ... for the first and last time! Don't worry, it's all good ... we're friends now.

Kimberley + Les: Winery Wedding at Chateau des Charmes in Niagara on the Lake

This past weekend, Kim + Les celebrated their Niagara winery wedding ceremony and reception at the famed Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara on the Lake. Outdoor weddings in Niagara are always fantastic … but getting married out among the winery vineyards in full view of the Niagara Escarpment is truly a memorable experience unique to Niagara's wine country!

Kim's colour palette was a little bit ‘Breeze’ with emphasis on shades of light purple. To accomplish the design for Kim and Les, we used hydrangeas, roses, peonies, lisianthus and calla lilies.

To complete the 'wine' theme, we included green globe grapes in the centerpieces and even designed the place cards to be displayed in wine corks!  

The bride’s bouquet was hand-tied (as all our bouquets are!) in shades of purple, wrapped in saddle-stitched grosgrain ribbon and accented with our gold pin finish!

The reception space looked fabulous all decked out with gold chiavari chairs and white linen with gold stripe sheer overlay. It was a perfect marriage of elements ... flowers, linens, stationery and even the cute paper lanterns hanging from ceiling of the tent!

Elegant Wedding Magazine ... Featured Wedding!

It's not very often that you 'accidentally' discover your work published in a magazine ... but it happened to us this week when we found one of our favourite fall weddings from 2009 was published in the latest issue of Elegant Wedding magazine! A happy accidental discovery, for sure!!

Kara + Bryan were married on a beautiful October Saturday afternoon at our absolute favourite old stone church in Niagara on the Lake – St. Mark’s Anglican Church! Later in the evening, Kara + Bryan’s guests were invited to an exquisite evening dinner reception in the Vineyard Pavillion at Hillebrand Estates Winery.

Xero Digital did a superb job of capturing the essence of Kara + Bryan's intimate wedding celebration ... experience the day vicariously below!
