Christal + Ki’s NIagara Winery Wedding at Vineland Estates Winery

We so looove intimate Niagara winery weddings ... it seems that we get to do quite a few in the fall season!

Vineland Estates Winery is one of the most beautiful intimate winery wedding venues in Niagara and it always feels like coming home when we get to work there. It's great to see Diane and the crew ... we've got a great history of designing/hosting the most beautiful weddings together!

Christal + Ki were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the deck overlooking the vineyards with the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario in the distance ... breathtakingly beautiful! After the ceremony, their guests were invited on a wine tour and then back to the Carriage House for dinner where a beautiful tablescape in the centre of the room was awaiting them!

This wedding featured hues from our 'Breeze' colour palette ... mainly purple with acents of green and white/cream and a touch of butter.

Flowers we designed with included green and white hydrangeas, stunning purple Vanda orchid blooms, dahlias, roses and pieris. Quirky elements included cork logs, Manzanita branches, giant slabs of walnut and canning jars with oodles of glass candlelight!

Heather + Mike’s Niagara Winery Wedding

Heather + Mike's Niagara winery wedding took place at the historic Saint Mary of the Assumption Church just a few kilometers from Hernder Estate Winery where they later invited their guests to an evening of wine, food and fun!

For Heather + Mike's reception, we designed a mix of tall and low elegant romantic centrepieces that were full and flowery featuring shades of deep purple, grape, vibrant green, white and light purple in our Breeze palette. The room was loaded with green and white hydrangeas, cymbids, purple roses, deep purple vanda orchids ...

Heather's gorgeous bridal bouquet  … mulled purple and white featuring Picasso callas and lady slipper and cymbidium orchids.

Sarah + Adam married at Inn on the Twenty

Sarah + Adam's Niagara wine country wedding was celebrated at the Cave Spring Vineyard, where they were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony at the base of the Niagara Escarpment.  Cocktails and an evening dinner reception followed at the always lovely Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in quaint Jordan Village ... absolutely perfect this time of the year!

The colour palette for the big day featured 'Breeze' in deep purple with hits of fresh green. We used white macrophylla hydrangeas, purple vanda orchids, schwarzwalder calla and cymbidium orchids, as well as annabelle hydrangea and sedum freshly plucked from our studio's organic cutting gardens!

Hard not to love the deep purple throats of the calla's in Sara's bridal bouquet ...

The full floral centrepieces for the reception in the Windows Room showcased some amazingly intense purple Vanda orchids which were offset nicely by the bright green in the annabelle hydrangea and floating candles!

Carolyn + Mike at Pillar and Post in Niagara on the Lake

We were back at the Vintage Hotels for another double header this weekend ... it's been a busy November!!

Carolyn + Mike's Niagara on the Lake wedding celebration was held at the Pillar and Post, with the wedding ceremony taking place upstairs in The Gallery room followed by cocktails and a lovely dinner reception downstairs in the Upper Canada room. We love the rustic charm of this warm and inviting property nestled right in the heart the village, just a couple of steps off the beaten path.

The long harvest style tables at the reception in The Upper Canada room featured tablescapes we designed in eggplant and olive/fresh green with deep and intense tones. A modern and eclectic yet natural feel incorporating such varied florals and elements as orchids, mums, succulents, Manzanita branches, moss and an absolute ton of candlelight and glass!

Congrats and best wishes to Carolyn + Mike ... thanks for letting us share in your big day! The purple Vanda orchids and Schwarzwalder callas in Carolyn's bouquet were unbelievable!
