Kendra + Chris at Inn on the Twenty

Kendra + Chris were married outdoors in the hazy vineyards of Cave Spring Cellars on the Beamsville Bench nestled in the Niagara Escarpment!

We designed their florals primarily in white and soft green with accents of caramel, soft blush and soft lavender using annabelle and peegee hydrangeas,  dahlias, lisianthus and various gardeny cuttings from our Studio's organic gardens.

We paired our florals with a host of textural elements including long barnboard pieces, mason jars and curly willow all on a lacey overlay over oyster hued linen. Soft, vintage and natural.

We worked with The Warehouse to bring in various antique and casual elements to complete the look!

Thanks to Nat – the oh-so-talented image guru – at Nataschia Wielink Photo + Cinema for these images that captured the day to perfection!

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 ...

Ariel + Andrew’s Anthropologie inspired wedding at Inn on the Twenty

This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

Okay, we've got a bit of a different post for you this time ... all you wedding purists might want to hang on to your seats! ;)

When we first met with our bride, Ariel, she told us that she didn’t want her wedding to *feel* like a wedding. She said she loved the store Anthropologie! We're big Anthropologie fans and we decided to get involved a little bit more with the staging aspect of her wedding ... the fabrics, pillows and the antiques ... all the lovely, lovely details! 

It turns out that we've got this old yellow couch (it generally resides on our deck at home) that was sort of one of the main things that started the whole ball rolling ... that’s really where the idea for all the antiques and vintage details started to come into play. We used a lot of custom pillows and hand-sewn birds in the curly willow trees we created ... complete with actual bird's nests that we rescued from the garden this spring. We also designed a flag garland that uses the same fabric as the napkins (which we had commissioned specifically for the wedding). We also had a local potter create some of the mini white vessels for the flowers.  And, of course, canning jars were everywhere with flowers and candles in them!

The flowers were mainly all yellow ... we used garden roses, local dahlias, a lot of herbs from the garden, lavender, lavender foliage, camomile and yarrow ... a lot of very local things that were coming up out of the ground at that time of the year.

We were really excited about designing this wedding because it’s really different than what you’d normally see or expect at a wedding. It was the ‘un-wedding’! The bride and groom were very focused on just creating a comfortable atmosphere for their guests and we're all about that!

Most of these photos were captured by the imaginative team at Nataschia Wielink Photography ... we're so excited to share them with you!

We can't finish this post without paying homage to the infamous yellow couch that started it all. It's kinda funny how the inspiration for a whole wedding can come from a singular yellow couch. It's amusing.

Ever wonder how all those lovely details from your favourite weddings get put together?  

We worked with the super creative Mike Enns of Enns Visuals to put together a short film giving you a little 'behind the scenes' view on how Ariel + Andrew's Anthropologie 'un-wedding' wedding was created! Mike bascially followed us around, filming our every move, documenting a day in the life of Mimosa Flower Studio.

And to think ... it all started with a yellow couch!

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!
