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!
Stunning purple vanda orchids for the boutonnieres ...
Cute and romantic floral pomander balls on the front doors of the Vineland Estates Carriage House ...
This tablescape in the Carriage House features loads of flowers, romantic candlelight, textural elements (such as wood slabs and cork logs) and the gleam of pristine glass (Mason jars and our signature glass candlesticks).
Would loooooved to have stayed for dinner ... :)

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.
The altar flowers at the ceremony featured lots of hydrangeas accented with green amaranthus, bear grass, roses and autumn flowering clematis from our studio's own organic cutting gardens!
We designed a mix of tall and low elegant and romantic centrepieces and added plenty of warm candlelight ...

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!
We wish Sarah + Adam much happiness at the start of their marriage journey ... thanks for letting us share in your big day!!

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!
We designed a few different bouquets for the bridesmaids ...
Groom Mike hamming it up for the camera ... nice boutonniere Mike!
The ceremony featured a backdrop of Mazanita branches with those gorgeous Vanda orchid blooms and some cute little hanging glass lanterns! Our custom wrought iron Shepherd's Hooks and loads of rose petals lined the aisle ...

Loving this incredible cake by Wedding Cakes by Design ... we tucked in a giant slab of walnut tree underneath and designed a complimentary posy of succulents, moss and orchids ... a forest of goodness!
