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!
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!).
Congratulations again Megan + Cameron ... it was a pleasure to design the flowers for your beautiful wedding!!
