Kira + Mike tied the knot right around the corner from our design studio at the lovely and rustic Honsberger Estate on an amazing Canada Day weekend!!! It's always fun to work in your own backyard!!
Working with Kira and her mom to pull together the details of her wedding day was a lot of fun ... two of the most laid back people you'll ever meet!!
There were many meaningful details ... ... the hand sewn chuppah that Mike’s sister made ... the rustic barn at Honsberger Estate with it’s stone walls and exposed beams ... the outdoor vintage-inspired lounge area designed by The Warehouse Niagara for their guests to enjoy right under the stars ... the late night food truck and who can forget the over-the-top fireworks display!
Thanks to the beautiful girls at Gush Events for calling us in on this one!
These wonderful photos captured by the team at Love Madly ... thanks for sharing with us!!!

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!

"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!

Kendra + Chris were married outdoors in the hazy vineyards of Cave Spring Cellars on the Beamsville Bench nestled in the Niagara Escarpment!
We designed their florals primarily in white and soft green with accents of caramel, soft blush and soft lavender using annabelle and peegee hydrangeas, dahlias, lisianthus and various gardeny cuttings from our Studio's organic gardens.
We paired our florals with a host of textural elements including long barnboard pieces, mason jars and curly willow all on a lacey overlay over oyster hued linen. Soft, vintage and natural.
We worked with The Warehouse to bring in various antique and casual elements to complete the look!
Thanks to Nat – the oh-so-talented image guru – at Nataschia Wielink Photo + Cinema for these images that captured the day to perfection!
