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!

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 ...

Have we ever mentioned how much we love Vineland Estates? I think so ...

We designed a 14ft long tablescape featuring a stunning 'cloud' of silvery foliages, white flowers and an absolute ton of the cutest little hanging glass lanterns hovering above the table!

Heather + Peter at Burlington Golf and Country Club

Heather + Peter were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the Burlington Bay at Burlington Golf and Country Club ... what a beautiful day! Immediately after the ceremony, guests were invited for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.

Heather's colour paletted featured 'Glow' in shades of yellow with an accent of white and silvery pewter.
 
We designed this wedding using orchids, gloriosa, yellow garden roses and white macrphylla hydrangeas ... with touches of sculptural curly willow for some textural fun!
 
Here's a picture of Heather's yellow bridal bouquet finished in pewter ribbon with an under-looped collar ...

The Burlington Golf and Country Club received a make-over a few years back ... a great looking venue with spectacular views of the bay and west end of Lake Ontario!

Loved these lucite chiavari chairs ... looked fab with the silvery pewter linens!

Each of the reception centrepieces was one of two different heights of tall glass with a full floral arrangement and an accent of curly willow at the top and as a cascade. A little handful of rough grey gravel in the bottom of the glass vessel tied it together nicely!

Here's the sketch we did for Heather + Peter ...

2011 Vintage Hotels Wedding Show

The 2011 Vintage Hotels Wedding Show was our first time out as Mimosa Flower Studio ... since recently changing our name and identity ... a coming out party, of sorts!

In truth, there were some nerves ... would colleagues and potential clients  'get it'? How would we be received as Mimosa Flower Studio? Would our hard work and creative efforts go unnoticed? Always there are questions ... we recognize that it's a big change.

And yet ... not so big a change.

In fact, this 'change' is really more of a metamorphosis ... a visual movement into the next natural state of being. We're still the same people behind the scenes ... it's really just the paint on the walls that's been updated.

At any rate, we were totally overwhelmed with the positive feedback and exciting comments of old and new colleagues and clients alike ... thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Here are a few photos of our booth at the show ... of course we used loads of Mimosa!!
