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!).

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!
