Helen + Steven at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Our little Helen finally married her Steven this weekend ... and we were absolutely delighted to be a part of their Big Day at Queen's Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Helen came to us because she connected with our work ... she also quickly became a friend and confidant. A total kindred spirit! We love it when those magical little friendships blossom because it makes doing 'our thing' for the wedding extra special!

The oh-so-romantic shades of red, burgundy and cerise that comprise a palette we like to call Passion featured prominently in Helen + Steven's wedding day floral decor. Garden roses, orchids, pink/red hydrangeas, pink pepperberries and some off-beat elements such as pomegranates, chestnuts and curly willow appeared in spades.

We knew we had nailed it when Helen (still in her PJ's!) came running barefoot into the Ballroom giving us all exuberant hugs of appreciation ... and we hadn't even finished our floral installation yet!! Helen + Steven ... it was our great privilege to be a part of your wedding celebration ... we're sure it was some sort of divine appointment!

This was Helen's bridal bouquet ... loving those amazing orchids and gorgeous garden roses!!! A perfect match to the detailing her in dazzling wedding dress ...

Helen + Steven's wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful glass encompassed Atrium at Queen's Landing.

Guests later returned to the Atrium for cocktails followed by an evening dinner reception in the Grand Georgian Ballroom. Once the Ceremony had taken place, we created this large floral piece underneath the chandelier in the Atrium ...

In the Grand Georgian Ballroom, we installed various elements of floral decor including table centrepieces and number of oversized 'branchy' pieces made of curly willow, orchids and our glass bell lanterns!

We really appreciate Helen's quirky sense of humour ... case in point: her and Steven's fascination with Squirrels. Hilarious! They even went so far as to procure a boat-load of Squirrel Nut Zippers candy for their wedding ... apparently we missed out on these little delights as kids.

Steven made this great photo booth vignette replete with pictures of their doggies ... we hear it was a hit with guests lined up to pose!

Calli + Tim’s Niagara-on-the-Lake Wedding at Pillar and Post

Wow, November is here already ... and we're back after after a much needed weekend off!

We'd like to send best wishes out to Calli + Tim who were wed this weekend in a lovely Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding ceremony at The Pillar and Post, one of the Vintage Hotels.

It's starting to get a little chilly outside, so these love-birds tied the knot upstairs in The Gallery Room before sending their guests on a tour at a local winery and then rejoining them for cocktails and an evening dinner reception in The Upper Canada room ... brilliant!

Passion was the colour palette of the day ... featuring deep tones of burgundy, deep crimson and black. Hydrangea, garden roses, amaranthus, red mokara orchids, pepperberries and smokebush comprised the majority of the florals we used in our design. 

Calli's passionately red bridal bouquet ... yes girls, those are peonies you see in there ... in November!!

The reception centrepieces were a mix of tall glass pedestals with flowers at the top alternating with flowers and a dark brown pillar candle with a glass hurricane at the top.

Jennifer + Chris at Prince of Wales in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Jennifer + Chris win this year's 'Longest Distance' award ... travelling to our little corner of the world all the way from Australia for their destination wedding!

Usually when we work with distance couples, there is generally some sort of family tie to the greater Niagara area, but in this case, Jennifer + Chris simply fell in love with the idea of getting married in Niagara on the Lake!! It turns out Jennifer's family had taken a recent trip to the area and when it came time for their wedding to be planned, Niagara on the Lake became the perfect destination wedding locale for this Ozzy couple!

Jennifer and Chris' wedding took place at St. Ilja Macedonia Orthodox Church in Mississauga with their dinner reception following in the Victoria and Albert Rooms at the lovely Prince of Wales Hotel in 'downtown' Niagara-on-the-Lake! It's been a while since we've worked at the 'Prince' ... what a gorgeous period property!

Today's colour palette was Charm featuring warm shades of mocha, ivory and white with soft touches of warm blush. A very modern vintage palette ... truly 'charming'! 

Jennifer's bridal bouquet was very soft and romantic ... but we spiced it up a bit with some seasonally appropriate berries!

The wedding ceremony was traditional Macedonian Orthodox ... very symbolically and culturally rich!

Janice + Mike at The Grand Victorian in Niagara on the Lake

Janice + Mike's intimate outdoor Niagara wedding took place at the stately Grand Victorian mansion B&B along the gorgeous winding curves of the Niagara River Parkway.

The Grand Vic, as we like to call her, is a spectacular Victorian mansion featuring Queen Anne Revival influences and is set on an acre and a half of gardens, surrounded by the award winning vineyards of Reif Estate Winery. The outdoor wedding ceremony took place on the property's gardens just a stone's throw from the mansion, where Janice + Mike later hosted their guests to a cozy dinner reception on the wrap-around verandah.

The seclusion and intimacy of this exclusive property feels half a world away from the hustle of the 'traditional' wedding ... it really transforms your perspective on what a great wedding celebration should be!! 

Janice's colour palette was plum with a touch of butter yellow, burgundy and ivory. Her bouquet in purple and yellow was absolutely gorgeous ... the giant Lady Slipper orchids were beyond amazing!!!

We absolutely adored the idea of designing a tablescape on the wrap-around verandah ... what a brilliant idea!! No need for a tent ... you have the completely jaw-dropping charm of Victorian mansion as your protection from the elements. Genius!!!
