We were back at the Vintage Hotels for another double header this weekend ... it's been a busy November!!
Heather + Greg came to us to design a natural, relaxed and clean floral palette for their wedding celebration. They were married at the incredible St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake with cocktails and an evening dinner reception following a short time later just around the corner in the Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen's Landing. This Georgian style mansion with it's imported hardwood, rich marble flooring and crystal chandeliers is simply perfection for the celebration of a wedding!
On top of a white base, we were working with a very bold palette of raspberry pink bordering on fucshia ... fully saturated and deeply intense. Much like our 'Spirit' palette! Orchids, garden and spray roses, gerbera and white hydrangea were the primary floral ingredients.
Heather + Greg ... it was a privilege to design the flowers for your wedding celebration ... we wish you much happiness in your marriage adventure! Bride Heather burst into tears of happiness when we delivered the bouquets to the bridal ready room at Queen's Landing ... she was overwhelmed! We were overwhelmed at her response!!
The bridesmaids carried a bouquet of intensely pink flowers with a contrasting black stem wrap ... an absolutely perfect match to their ensemble for the day!
It's been a long while since we've been able to work at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church ... it was under a bit of restoration outside ... beautiful inside with the boxed pews and history dating back to 1794. The current building was rebuilt in the 1830's after it was burned down by the Americans in the War of 1812.
Guests gathered for cocktails in the Atrium at Queen's Landing ... dinner followed inside the Grand Georgian Ballroom.
This ravishing cake (can you describe a cake as 'ravishing'?) was created by Ruth and Eda at Vineyard Sweets ...
