Raewyn + Charlie’s Private Blue Mountain Wedding (featured in Wedluxe)

This wedding was featured in WedLuxe magazine!

Raewyn + Charlie's wedding was held on her family's private horse farm at the base of the Blue Mountains on a perfect early summer day in June!

We had soooo much fun working with Crystal (Distinct Occasions) and Paras (Design 2 Decor) to put together this elegant and organic feeling landscape-inspired gem!!!

This wedding was chock full of pale pastels ... lavender, blush, butter, ivory, soft green ... and seaonal florals including peonies, garden roses, delphiniums, lavender, herb and fern plants, moss, lily of the valley, succulents, lisianthus, clematis vine and other tidbits of gardeny goodness!

All the lovely rough luxe details worked to tie the 'look and feel' together ... cork bark, natural wood tables, crystal stemware, custom floral chandelier, co-ordinated oatmeal linens and tent draping and even the custom carpeted flooring and dance floor!

Here are some of our own photos of the day ... enjoy!

We created a couple of enormous 'twiggy trees' (15 ft high) which not only looked fab, they also served to help increase the intimacy of the space by making the ceiling feel a little lower!

We designed a few types of centrepieces ... the first was a a low and lush, landscape-inspired floral for the round tables. There was no visible vessel and they featured ferns, moss, succulents and garden blooms married with cork bark.

The second style of centrepiece was for the long communal tables and featured a continuous landscape of florals and ferns interspersed with candles, succulents and moss stretching along the full length of the tablescape.

Hanging in the centre of the space, the 6ft x 5ft metal and wood base for this jaw-dropping floral chandelier was custom-made by Design 2 Decor and then we infused it with a ton of floral goodness!

Nicole + Jonathan

We had the pleasure of designing the florals for Nicole + Jonathan's wedding this past weekend.  Nicole worked for Mimosa for a few summers back in her high school days ... so it was fun twist to now be designing flowers for her big day!!!

Summer has hit Southern Ontario with a vengeance this year and it was a scorcher on Saturday with humidex temperatures climbing to nearly 40C (that's nearly 105F for our American friends!) ... and the sky hasn't produced a drop of rain in weeks and weeks!!!  Perfect timing for this refreshing and cool yellow, grey, white and fresh green color palette!!

Nicole's flowers included white macrophylla hydrangea, yellow craspedia, yellow garden roses and grey foliages such as lamb's ear ... plus all kinds of seasonal pickin's from our organic cutting garden ... like mint, delicate cilantro blooms, variegated hosta leaves and the last of the lady's mantle blooms. We added loads of texture and interest by using lemons, funky succulents and poppy pods!
