Kathryn + Jeremy at Vineland Estates Winery

As you know, we're quite fond of design weddings at Vineland Estates Winery ... it's just one of those gorgeous, intimate Niagara winery properties that we simply cannot get enough of!!!

This weekend, Kathryn + Jeremy were married on the north deck at Vineland Estates and broke bread with their guests afterward, dining together over a superb multi-course dinner in The Carriage House prepared by Executive Chef Justin Downes. 

We were pretty excited to design the rough-luxe centrepieces for their reception! (see below for a complete description!)

It poured rain all morning, but cleared up beautifully just in time for Kathryn + Jeremy to tie the knot ... we're so happy to have been part of their Big Day!!

To achieve the 'rough-luxe' look for these centrepieces, we started with a piece of flagstone (yes, a rock!) and built up around the trinity of glass and floating candles using cream and natural coloured florals, miniature ferns, moss and cuttings (from our Studio's organic cutting gardens) such Japanese painted fern, herbs (mint and oregano), Lady's Mantle and scented geranium!

Blessings to Kathryn + Jeremy as they begin their marriage journey ... they certainly kicked it off in style!!

The *Made with Love* Project Short Film

We're so excited to finally share the latest film project we've just finished  ... we call it 'Made with Love' !!!

While we were dreaming this all up, we became focused on some specific words and phrases such as ... 'local', 'heirloom', 'hand-made', 'authentic', 'community', 'nature', 'living in the moment' ... we followed our heart and really let these words become our mantra to guide us through this project.

Be sure to check out the Made with Love Project photos as well.

On most creative projects like this one, many, many hours are spent crafting a space to perfection so as to be pristinely captured for publication and then, quicker than it went up, it's all torn down and packed away and everyone runs back to their busy lives! There's something that just feels wrong about that ... so, this time around, we felt it was really important that those involved get to enjoy the fruits of our labour and share the joy of the moment!  So, at the end of day with all of our hard work behind us, we invited a few friends to join us as we sat down for dinner + drinks!

At it's heart, Made with Love is a story about beauty, friendship, connection and kindred spirits ... it's a story that is about more than just a theme or colour scheme ... it’s about more than a schedule of events or formalities and pretense.

Certainly it's about engaging the senses and creating a setting full of discovery and beauty ... but it’s also about all of the little details that have a way of bringing people closer together to celebrate our togetherness!

This story was Made with Love and the creative gifts of a few good friends ...

Andrea + Todd at Vineland Estates Winery

Andrea came to us about her nuptials at Vineland Estates Winery ... to design and execute the florals and decor she would need for her intimate wedding of just 11 guests plus the bride and groom!!!  We had soooooo much fun!!

Here's a fun fact: Andrea's a wee bit famous! You might have seen her on Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds and Blue Bloods ... or you might know her best as Dennis Leary's ex Janet Gavin on Rescue Me. Andrea is originally from Southern Ontario and she flew back to Niagara from LA to tie the knot with her producer fiancé, Todd Biermann.

We went for a romantic and natural look and feel in mainly white with touches of lavender and some silver foliage. There was lots of variety in shapes and textures and the shades of white and ivory.

Flowers included lavender foliage, white hydrangeas, white tuberose, white calla lilies, garden roses, white dahlia, freesia and white lisianthus.

It was a very relaxed day with the afternoon ceremony taking place out in the vineyards (it's grape harvest time right now and it smells so great!) followed by a 7 course dinner in the Carriage House prepared by Executive Chef Justin Downes.

Unfortunately, due to Andrea's fame, we're unable to show you any pictures of her ... but she's gorgeous!! Here is Andrea's bridal bouquet ...
