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!

Kendra + Chris at Inn on the Twenty

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!

Francesca + Ryan at Knollwood

It was so satisfying to finally bring all the deliciousness of Francesca + Ryan's wedding to life this weekend after working the better part of a year with the couple (who are soooo AWESOME) and Melissa from One Fine Day Event Planning to dream it up and give it legs!!!

One thing you need to know about Francesca + Ryan ... they put an incredible amount of creative energy into their big day ... this might actually be a bit of an understatment! From the custom wedding stationery (designed and printed by Ryan) to the wedding cake (designed and created by Francesca) they were beyond knee-deep in the details.

We crafted all the florals and provided design and theme consulting for things like the vintage details, outdoor lounge (kudos to The Warehouse) and room decor as well!

The end result was simply amazing ... and not just because of the details, but because these two love-birds finally said "I do" ... as they were meant too all along.
