Heather + Mike's Niagara winery wedding took place at the historic Saint Mary of the Assumption Church just a few kilometers from Hernder Estate Winery where they later invited their guests to an evening of wine, food and fun!
For Heather + Mike's reception, we designed a mix of tall and low elegant romantic centrepieces that were full and flowery featuring shades of deep purple, grape, vibrant green, white and light purple in our Breeze palette. The room was loaded with green and white hydrangeas, cymbids, purple roses, deep purple vanda orchids ...
Heather's gorgeous bridal bouquet … mulled purple and white featuring Picasso callas and lady slipper and cymbidium orchids.
The altar flowers at the ceremony featured lots of hydrangeas accented with green amaranthus, bear grass, roses and autumn flowering clematis from our studio's own organic cutting gardens!
We designed a mix of tall and low elegant and romantic centrepieces and added plenty of warm candlelight ...

It was a busy first 'official' weekend of the 2011 wedding season for us ... but so nice to get back into the groove after a long winter!
Sarah + Mike were married in Niagara-on-the-Lake at St. Vincent de Paul church in an afternoon ceremony and later they celebrated with an elegant dinner reception at Queen's Landing (just around the corner), one of the Vintage Hotels.
The palette for the day consisted of ivory/champagne, white, old world gold and featured a deep fig purple in the girls' bouquets. The star blooms were definitely the most delicate and elegant phalaenopsis orchids on the table tops ... actually, orchids in general, including cymbids, vandas and lady slippers, were all over the place!
We also brought loads of candles to imbue the ballroom with warmth and romance.
Sarah was so excited and grateful ... she gushed profusely every time we met up all day long ... she certainly knew how to make us feel appreciated! It was definitely our pleasure to design for this lovely couple ... Sarah + Mike, we wish you a blessed marriage journey!!

For the wedding ceremony, we designed four large floral arrangements and a dozen cute little pew posies with white hydrangea.
These absolutely breathtaking phalaenopsis orchids stole the show in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing ... an amazing combo that also featured our exclusive Perennial glassware collection. We sketched it out for Sarah + Mike ...
We created a 'Wishing Tree' in the Atrium that featured Manzanita branches, purple vanda orchids and lovely hanging glass lanterns.
