Taren + Gus Vineyard Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

One of the great joys of living and working in Niagara is getting to do weddings right out in the vineyards, amongst the year's budding vintage!

Taren + Gus were married up in the Cave Spring Vineyard headlands this past weekend in a lovely traditional Greek ceremony ... well, as traditional as you can be while getting married in a vineyard!

The colour palette for this wedding featured predominately pale pink, blush and white offset with some fresh hits of spring green and silver/grey.

Florals included lamb's ear, peonies, garden roses and gardenias with lavender foliage, clematis vine, mock orange and sprigs of mint from our studio's organic cutting gardens!

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!

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!

A couple of weeks ago, we started our look back at some of the best moments of the last year's wedding season!  Here's part 2 in the series of our favourite bridal bouquets from 2011 ... enjoy!

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!
