Rubina + Andrew at Inn on the Twenty

Rubina + Andrew were married in a vineyard in the heart of Niagara's bountiful wine country and then celebrated with their guests in the magnificent 'hidden gem' at Inn on the Twenty formally known as the Vintner's Cellar!

Loads of beauty that featured a long communal table for 50, bunches and bunches of mokara orchids, red garden roses, dahlias and a virtual floatilla of rose petals all under the auspices of the dramatically romantic tones of our Passion pallet ... rich red, deep burgundy and midnight black!!!

We so loved being a part of this intimate affair!

This wedding was featured in WedLuxe magazine!

Also, check out the photos and the full blog entry.

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!!!

If pictures are worth a thousand words, than film must be worth milllions ... check out this cinematic work of art by James Frodyma Wedding Films!

Megan + Cameron’s Alton Mill Wedding (featured on Style Me Pretty)

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

This weekend, we travelled up to the little hamblet of Alton, Ontario to design the florals and some decor elements for Megan + Cameron's wedding at the super awesome Alton Mill Arts Centre!

We were really excited to work with Kate from The Little White Dress and a bunch of friends we've met in last year ... like Selena from Hazlitt Vintage Rentals and Ida from Cake Museum!

To achieve a "Spring Harvest" vibe, we employed a variety of in-season and some locally grown flowers like peonies, dahlias, zinnias, clematis vine, safflower, gloriosa, purple hydrangeas and various garden fare (from our Studio's own organic cutting garden, of course!) such as lavender and mint foliages.

We'd describe it as relaxed, fresh, springy, heirloom, vintage and artsy!

We were working with a very bold colour palette ... tangerine, light orange, red, purple, butter and mellow yellow with light stone grey/lavender as a base and accidental green foliages. As you can see, against the printed wedding stationery, it really was a stunning match!

The outdoor reception space was set up in communal-style guest tables and our centrepieces featured a variety of full floral pieces in cement vessels, single blooms in vintage glass jars and a variety of 'fernscapes' (betcha never heard that one before!!!) intermingled with hundreds of candle-lit antique Mason jars.

The atmosphere was simply sublime!

Central to the space, we created a magnificent 12ft tall 'twiggy tree' absolutely dripping with curly willow, foliages and flowers! The trimming on the tree came in the form of hanging glass candle-lit lanterns and dozens of Monarch butterflies (to help complete the Spring Harvest theme!). The finished tree looked like it had been growing and blooming there for years and years!!!

There were loads of interesting textural elements as well ... cork, mason jars with votives, moss, ferns, rocks and branches ...

Various vintage details worked so well with the space and theme (we affectionately refer to the outdoor reception space as The Ruins!).

Congratulations again Megan + Cameron ... it was a pleasure to design the flowers for your beautiful wedding!!

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!

Cailee + Douglas at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake

We just had to share some pics from an intimate wedding we designed for Cailee + Douglas ... we love the deep red, crimson and merlot colours layered on top of black lace and saphire blue of the girl's dresses way too much!!

The wedding ceremony took place in the afternoon at the Rose Garden at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Guests gathered later in the Old Library to celebrate with Cailee + Douglas over drinks and a dinner reception!

The flowers we designed with consisted of garden roses, orchids and dahlias ... that's it! What a luscious, bold and textural palette ... so much fun!

Here's Cailee's mesmerizing bridal bouquet ... definitely one of our favourites from this year!
