This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!
Alyssa + Jay were wed this past weekend and celebrated their Niagara wedding ceremony at the Cave Spring Cellars Vineyard Retreat on the Niagara Escarpment. After the ceremony, Alyssa + Jay 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.
This wedding was jam packed with luscious and intense colour ... bright and bold tones of deep pink, red and burgundy ... the girls wore stunning peacock blue dresses! A feast for the eyes.
The floral colours borrowed heavily from our ‘Spirit’ palette and featured oodles and oodles of peonies, garden roses, orchids and pink hydrangea ... mmmmm.
Alyssa's bridal bouquet was one of our favourites coming out of the studio this weekend ...
The bridesmaids bouquets looked absolutely delicious against their peacock blue dresses!
The scrambling roses on the Vineyard Retreat were in full bloom ... just perfect!

We had so much fun designing these reception centrepieces ... the silver vessels reflected the hues from the linens, the blooms and the twinkling candlelight! Each centrepiece was packed full of heavenly blooms of peonies, garden roses and orchids ... the Windows Room was dazzling!

Rebecca + Mark currently reside in Toronto and made Niagara-on-the-Lake their destination wedding location this past weekend!
After tying the knot at the gorgeous St. Mark's Anglican Church in lovely downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake, Rebecca + Mark invited their guests to celebrate with them in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing just around the corner! The two venues are so close, it's just a short walk in the shade of the beautiful overhead tree canopy!
For Rebecca + Mark's reception, we designed tall, elegant romantic centrepieces that were full and flowery featuring shades of rich red, raspberry, medium pink and burgundy in a combo of our Passion and Spirit palettes. The ballroom was loaded with peony blooms, garden and standard roses, hydrangeas, mokara orchids, callas and amaranthus.
Rebecca's gorgeous bride's bouquet … loving those garden roses so much!!!
The lovely ladies looking mighty fine!
St. Mark's is such a goregous old church ... a couple of wreaths on the doors is about all it needs outside!!
Rebecca is a stunning beauty ... what a gorgeous bride!
The reception centrepieces in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing were a mix of tall full floral pieces and some with curly willow and mokara orchids tied-in ...

This past weekend, Agnes + Geoff celebrated their Niagara wedding in Jordan Village. After the wedding ceremony at the local United Church, their guests were invited to the Windows Room at Inn on the Twenty for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.
The colour palette for the day was ‘Spirit’ featuring shades of cranberry, raspberry with blush and shots of white. We were going for a contemporary yet vintage feel with romantic blooms such as garden roses, hydrangeas, orchids, freesia and peonies.
Spring finally 'sprung' last week and Jordan Village was looking and smelling amazing in full bloom ...

In September we spent three days producing a suite of five different 'scenes' to inspire and excite you about all the dreamy possibilities for your wedding ... we're over the moon to finally be able to share them with you!
In this scene, we're featuring our 'Spirit' colour palette done up in our 'Swirl' collection. There are an absolute ton of dazzling of pink hydrangea, dahlia, garden roses and nerine lilies in combination with crushed pink linens and crisp white chiavari chairs ... mmm! We custom made the pink felted lantern specifically for this scene.
During production, we affectionately nicknamed this scene 'The Wave' due to the appearance of all those gorgeous pink blooms looking as though they'd just washed right up onto the table ... like a big, pink wave!

So now that the 2010 wedding season is officially behind us and the end of the year is upon us, it's time again to reflect on the year that was.
If you're a regular visitor, you'll recall that each year around this time we kick off our annual 'Best Of' blog series. In keeping with tradition, we're doing it again to recap 2010.
Below is just part one of what will be a number of installments to come over the winter! We've been compiling an album called 'Best Wedding Bouquets of 2010 and we're excited to revisit some love stories and images with you! In subsequent entries, we'll feature some of our favourite centerpieces, reception, church and ceremony décor as well!
We hope you enjoy the recap as much as we enjoy the memories it brings us!
One of our first weddings of the season was Natalija + Marc at Burlington Golf and Country Club. Natalija’s colour palette was a fusion of 'Spirit' and ‘Breeze’ which included tones of deep pink and magenta and shades of purple subtly set off by white hydrangea.
The matching bridesmaid's bouquets ... a big bridal party with 8 girls! The bouquets looked amazing against the shimmery fabric of their dresses ... depending on the light, you'd see tones of lavender, purple, pink, magenta or even electric blue!
We were loving the rich, deep colours and textures of Melissa + Dave's wedding flowers at Vineland Estates Winery The colours of the flowers we were working with prominently featured our Passion theme in shades of deep red, burgundy and cerise. Luscious and romantic! Don't these colours just knock your socks off??? Unbelievable! Notice the little fluffy detailing on the stem of Melissa's bouquet ... we affectionately referred to it as a 'tutu' around the studio all weekend! A perfect match for the ruffles on Melissa's wedding dress ...
Caley + Richard's outdoor wedding ceremony took place at Richmond Hill Golf and Country Club ... the colour palette for the ceremony and the wear and carry pieces was our 'Forest' theme! How adorable does Caley look ... a picture of complete serenity!!
Lots of floral goodness at Jennifer + Robert's wedding in September ... dahlias, red and pink orchids, red hydrangeas, amaranthus, curly willow, celosia, burgundy cordeline, light pink nerines and the most absolutely delicious garden roses ... ever. The colour palette was based on 'Bliss' This closeup of Jennifer's bridal bouquet gives you a good idea of the colour palette we were working with ... soft and muted tones.
Each of the five bridesmaids bouquets carried through the colours, but were slightly different in texture and ingredients ...
This particular weekend, we designed the flowers for Julia + David's vineyard wedding. We were working with very 'modern vintage' palette featuring muted and antique shades of lavender and purple, muted mulberry, blush, blue, tan and sage green. To accomplish this very relaxed and assorted look, we used fluffy flowers like dahlias and antique green hydrangeas, as well as seeded eucalyptus and all sorts of gardeny goodness!! The lacy detailing on Julia's bridal bouquet is the perfect tell-tale sign of the 'modern vintage' feel we were going for ...
The bridesmaid's bouquets were little more bold ... they were certainly feeling a little playful just moments before gliding down the aisle!
Part 2 coming soon ... stay tuned!
