At The Wedding Co. Show 2012

We kicked off 2012 at The Wedding Co. Show in the historic Carlu ... one of Toronto's finest examples of art moderne architecture designed by Jacques Carlu in 1930 ... such a unique event space!!

Aside from meeting new clients at the show, a really important part of the weekend for us is connecting with the many talented wedding professionals that gather annually at this show. We're so proud to be associated with such a talented pool of wedding vendors and we're excited to work with a bunch of them in the coming months and years!!

For this show, we debuted our long-awaited latest addition ... a one-of-a-kind 10ft tall custom made metal tree we commissioned this past fall! We loaded the tree with nearly 300 stems of tangerine mokara orchids, hanging glass candle-lit lanterns and delicate handcrafted glass butterflies (custom made for us by our glass artisan friend, Connie Paul).

Just imagine exchanging your wedding vows under a couple of these jaw-dropping trees ... indoors or out ... they'd be absolutely magnificent!!!

We designed our *tree* to be extremely versatile ... in addition to a wedding ceremony, we can also use it to create a statement piece in the lobby, atrium, bar or lounge area of your event space ... it can be bare or loaded with foliage, branches or flowers of any colour ... it's also height adjustable!

The tree effectively lowers the ceiling and helps to creates a more intimate space ... much like in nature!

We had been dreaming about  our *tree* for quite a while ... we sketched up our idea, brought it to a metal artist friend of ours and he made our vision into reality!  

We're so happy with this first one, that we're going to get a few more made ... the possibiities for use are endless!!!

We started designing our space for this show back in September ... before we fully realized just how big the tangerine orange and grey combo would become this year!

We gathered and assembled our ideas ... custom grey felt flower vessel sleeves with inset butterfly detailing, fabric votive sleeves, butterfly tea cups from Anthropologie, antique silverware (found at Paris Market in Savannah, GA), grey-washed barnboard communal table (from The Warehouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake), pinwheel crystal stemware ... it all came together nicely!

Back in the late fall, Catherine Lash of The Wedding Co. sent photographer Geneviève Caron over to the studio to catch Jennifer in her element ... for an article for the premier of The Wedding Co. magazine.

When we showed up at The Carlu to install our display, weren't we surprised to find Jennifer had become the poster-girl for the "Meet the Makers" feature ... is it a little hot in here?!?!

All-in-all, it was a wonderful way to kick off the 2012 wedding season ... we're really looking forward to how this year will unfold!

corporate event at chateau des charmes winery

On Saturday night we had the pleasure of designing a 64ft long tablescape for a corporate excursion dinner at Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake ... we had so much fun with this!  

We were designing a very "Old World" look for this special dinner ... naturally, we pulled out our cork logs, acacia balls, mason jars with votive candles and some really awesome green swirl vessels. And our Twiggy lanterns were an absolute must to add some ambience to this outdoor event! The linens featured a deep merlot with gold filigree accent and moss napkins. 

For the floral colour palette, we designed in deep yellow, orange/gold and moss green using garden roses, oncidium orchids, pin-cushion protea, green hydrangeas, succulents, leucadendron and fresh moss. 

Special thanks to Kim and Catherine at Strategic Meetings Solutions for giving us the freedom to flex our creative muscles!
