Our Wedding Co. Show 2013 ‘Enchanted Forest’ Display

It's fun to do wedding shows, but super exhausting!  The real thrill of it all is to see the final product 'live' in front of you when it's only been in your head for far too long!!!

For 2013, we'd been dreaming of doing something very different ... we purposely avoided the traditional 'table & chairs' setup.

What we dreamt up was a kind of "The-Hobbit-meets-Twilight-meets-The-Enchanted-Forest" theme ... we only had a 6ft x 10ft space to pull it off in!

Our bride's bouquet contained garden roses, anemones, viburnum berries, ranunculus, white vanda orchids and delicate narcisus blooms. We custom created the bouquet stem wrap from fabric found at The Workroom. (Thanks to Two Birds Bridesmaid for allowing us to 'steal' their model for this image!)

The anchor elements in our display area included a pair of our giant 12ft tall 'twiggy' trees covered in cork bark, moss, ferns and more than 400 stems of white dendrobium orchids!

The featured floral centrepiece was sitting atop our newest custom creation ... a gigantic metal 'stump' (yes, it's metal!!!) repleat with root veins, bark, tree rings and little knots and knobs ... we love it and we so excited to unveil it this weekend!

So, so, SO many potential uses for this stump ... cake stand, a statement piece with florals on it or thow on a plexi round and turn it into a Sweetheart Table or a candy bar. It also splits into two pieces and can be used at a ceremony/altar site with twin florals on it ... so many things to imagine!

Of course 'Emerald Green' (2013 Colour of the Year) had to make an appearance!

In the wee minutes of the show, we threw together an impromptu photo shoot with our new 'stump and an awesome 'woodland' themed wedding cake from Sweetere!  Uber-awesome photog Nataschia Wielink (our show neighbour for the weekend!) captured a couple of shots!

The Wedding Co. Magazine - Feature

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.)

One tree done two ways ...

Ever since we debuted our new custom-fabricated artisan metal trees at The Wedding Co. Show in January, we've had an amazing response!

Just imagine exchanging your wedding vows under a couple of these jaw-dropping trees ... indoors or out ... they'd be absolutely magnificent!!!  Or how about we use it to create a statement piece in the lobby, atrium, bar or lounge area of your event space ... they could be simply bare or absolutely loaded with foliage, branches or flowers of any colour ... it's also height adjustable!

For The Wedding Co. Show, we loaded this tree with nearly 300 stems of tangerine mokara orchids, hanging glass candle-lit lanterns and delicate handcrafted glass butterflies.

At the recent Vintage Hotels Wedding Show, we wanted to show a different way to use our trees ... so, we layered birch branches, camillia foliage and tangering mokara orchids to create an intimate canopy over a sweet-heart table for two! 

Simple. Beautiful. Lovely.

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!

The Wedding Co. Magazine - Premier Issue

When we got the email from Catherine Lash of The Wedding Co. that she want to feature us in the premiere issue of her new magazine ... well, we were a little excited ... and a little scared, to be honest!!

It turns out we had a wonderful time working with the amazingly-talented Genevieve Caron as she explored every inch of our barn and work studio, catching Jennifer in action while she was creating one of fall 2011 weddings.

We think the first issue turned out wonderfully and we are so thrilled to have been a part of it!

Here are the results ...
