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 ...

Jenna + Ian: Niagara Winery Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

Jenna + Ian's Niagara wedding celebration was at the lovely Inn on the Twenty in Jordan Village, Ontario ... where some of the most beautiful Niagara wine country weddings take place!

The colour palette for the day was our ever popular 'Breeze' featuring shades of grape, eggplant, mulberry, light cranberry with some champagne and honeydew melon mixed in. We loved the bouquets and the centerpieces were gorgeous in the Windows Room! 

Jenna's bridal bouquet ... with her grandmother's broach that we tied into the stem! We really love these personal details ...

These centerpieces looked amazing in The Windows Room ... instead of the traditional glass votives around the base, we raised a couple of pillar candles to spill their warm light on each table!

We designed a Manzanita tree on the credenza in foyer ... a nice 'entrance' piece as this is the area where the guests first arrived.

We wish Jenna + Ian many blessings in their marriage journey ... it was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding celebration!

Carmen + Andy: Niagara Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

Carmen + Andy were wed this past weekend and celebrated their Niagara wedding ceremony at the historic (and oh-so-cute!) Balls Falls Chapel in Niagara’s Twenty Valley region. After their wedding chapel ceremony, Carmen + Andy 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.

Their wedding colour palette was ‘Shade’ featuring blue hydrangea, burgundy cordeline, white roses, green amaranthus and callas.

We also found these really spectacular white mini pumpkins which added a really seasonal eclectic touch to the reception centerpieces! A beautiful day for a beautiful couple!

Holly + Rodolfo: Niagara Winery Wedding at Inn on the Twenty

We absolutely love, love, love Niagara winery weddings … especially this time of year!

This weekend, Holly + Rodolfo were wed at Cave Spring Winery’s ‘Vineyard Retreat’ among the grape rows in the vineyard where some of Niagara’s best vintages begin! After their wedding ceremony, Holly + Rodolfo invited their guests to an evening dinner reception in the Vintner’s Cellar at the nearby Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in Jordan Village.

The colour palette for the day was ‘Fire’ featuring shades of cherry, rust, pumpkin, chocolate and saffron. To achieve Holly’s look, we designed with dahlias, roses, hydrangeas, orchids and mango callas.

The bride’s bouquet …

The wedding ceremony was supposed to be in the vineyard, but was changed to the Retreat at the last minute because the weather was not cooperating!

There's this creepy / cool grotto in the Vintner's Cellar ... I think it used to be a cistern for the original winery back in the 1800's.

We designed a Wishing Tree out of Manzanita branches in glass.
