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!

Christina + George tied the knot in an afternoon wedding ceremony in the Atrium at Queen's Landing in lovely downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake! Afterward, guests were invited for evening cocktails and to celebrate with them in the Imperial Ballroom over dinner!
Pale tones of blush and ivory with accents of pale peach, light creamy yellow and pale lavender were all in the colour palette for the day. A very modern vintage / English garden theme featuring lace, chargers, brown chiavari chairs, mercury and clear footed glass.
Blooms included peonies (of course!!!), roses, delphiniums, lilacs, ranunculus and ... wait for it ... baby's breath! Yup, it's baaack.
We had a ton of fun designing the ceremony in the Atrium ... the couple provided the oh-so-cute Hers & His night tables that we incorporated.
The centrepieces were a mix of short full floral compotes (flanked by our Dutz glass candlesticks with ivory pillar candles) and tall Venture glassware capped with a full floral underlaid with mercury glass votives.

We're thrilled to once again be featured in The Wedding Co. Magazine for 2013! It's always a lot of fun working with the girls from the Wedding Co. ... always a twist on the ordinary!
This time, we were given only a single word and a colour palette as inspiration! From this little glimspse of inspiration, we were to create a bouquet that would be married with both a wedding cake and wedding stationery for a 'group' shot in the studio! We had no idea who the other two creative contributors would be and so we couldn't chat amongst ourselves ahead of time!
We were up for the challenge ... check our 'featured' page below! (The entire feature can be found on pages 36 - 41 here.)

If you've been following us for a while, you know that we absolutely love colour ... so we were pretty excited to take full advantage of a palette featuring shades of purple, magenta, orchid and blush tones for Ruby + Ty's Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding at Queen's Landing.
We employed very seasonal flowers such as tulips and muscari and combined them with lushious english garden roses, super-stunning Vanda orchids and loads of mokara orchid sprays ... just dripping with beauty!
Ruby was all smiles ... it was contagious! She looked oh-so fabulous ...
The reception centerpieces were half tall full-florals perched a top a glistening glass vase and half short full-florals flanked by twin glass candlesticks.
Ruby + Ty ... we wish you every blessing in your marriage journey ... it was such a pleasure to design the flowers for your wedding day!!!

This weekend we gathered up the Mimosa Team and headed up the 400 to King City for Chloe + Herbert's wedding ceremony and reception at the lovely King Valley Golf Club.
Confessional moment: We'd never heard of King City before now ... but that's some gorgeous country up there!
We absolutely love colour and so does Chloe ... so we 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.
Our chuppah canopy was just dripping with loads of vanda and mokara orchids, the venue was draped in silvery linens and the bridesmaids rocked it in pretty blue patterned dresses with black ruffled boleros!
To accomplish this rich and romantic look, we used plenty of dazzling Yves Paiget garden roses, deep purple vanda orchids, hydrangea blooms in blue and purple as well as purple mokaras ... virtually no foliage anywhere!
Our beautiful bride Chloe was accompanied down the aisle by her dad ... check out that dress! Sigh.
We layered orchid stems to create dripping panicles of blooms on our chuppah/canopy frame ... they almost look like wisteria!
The centrepieces at the reception were a mix of short full florals (flanked with tall glass candlesticks and swirl glass vessels) and tall full florals perched a top a vase with submersed purple vanda orchids!
The coolest idea ever .... hire a caricature artist to hang out with your wedding guests for a couple of hours during cocktails!!!
We wish Chloe + Herbert every blessing in their marriage journey ... it was such a pleasure to design the flowers for your wedding day!!!
