This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!
Alyssa + Jay were wed this past weekend and celebrated their Niagara wedding ceremony at the Cave Spring Cellars Vineyard Retreat on the Niagara Escarpment. After the ceremony, Alyssa + Jay hosted an evening dinner reception for their guests in the Windows Room at the nearby Inn on the Twenty on Main Street in quaint Jordan Village.
This wedding was jam packed with luscious and intense colour ... bright and bold tones of deep pink, red and burgundy ... the girls wore stunning peacock blue dresses! A feast for the eyes.
The floral colours borrowed heavily from our ‘Spirit’ palette and featured oodles and oodles of peonies, garden roses, orchids and pink hydrangea ... mmmmm.
Alyssa's bridal bouquet was one of our favourites coming out of the studio this weekend ...
The bridesmaids bouquets looked absolutely delicious against their peacock blue dresses!
The scrambling roses on the Vineyard Retreat were in full bloom ... just perfect!

We had so much fun designing these reception centrepieces ... the silver vessels reflected the hues from the linens, the blooms and the twinkling candlelight! Each centrepiece was packed full of heavenly blooms of peonies, garden roses and orchids ... the Windows Room was dazzling!

This past weekend, Lynn + Mike celebrated their Niagara winery wedding ceremony and reception at the always wonderful Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara on the Lake.
Outdoor weddings in Niagara are always fantastic … but getting married out among the winery vineyards in full view of the Niagara Escarpment is truly a memorable experience unique to Niagara's wine country!
Lynn's colour palette featured predominately yellows and golds with bold teal and peacock blue accents. To accomplish the floral design for Lynn + Mike, we used white hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, orchids and some lady's mantle plucked right from our organic cutting gardens here at the studio.
This wedding was full of gorgeous eye-candy including the gold chiavari chairs and sheer overlays, the paper lanterns, custom chopstick wedding favours, stunning stationery and the fantabulous cake by Cake Opera Co.
Congrats and best wishes to Lynn + Mike ... we loved being a part of your wedding celebration!!!

This weekend Reanne + Dan were married in an afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony in the headlands of the beautiful Etherington Estate vineyards, one of the many Cave Spring Cellars vineyards on the Beamville Bench wine appellation of Niagara.
It was the most perfect wedding weekend of the spring so far this year ... a beautiful vineyard setting, sunny and breezy, and, of course, delicious flowers!
We designed in our 'Glow' palette featuring predominately yellow flowers with all the coordinating napkins and other elements (such as the fans, favours, bridesmaid's dresses, etc.) all in gorgeous eggplant purple!
Flowers consisted of garden and standard roses, gerberas, craspedia, orchids, snaps, callas, and gardeny bits such as heuchera leaves, japanese painted fern, mint and scented geranium from our own organic cutting gardens!
The very natural and organic look was completed by some awesome wooden slabs we sliced up from reclaimed local locust tree stumps and the cutest little white ceramic vessels!!
The bride's bouquet in yellow featuring lots of gardeny bits and a special pendant detailing on the stem ...
Reanne + Dan were married outdoors right in the Cave Spring Cellars Vineyard!
The happy couple ... just married!
Guests joined Reanne + Dan over at Inn on the Twenty on Main St. in Jordan for cocktails and evening dinner reception ...
Blessings and best wishes to Reanne + Dan at the start of their marriage journey ... it was a pleasure being a part of your special day!!

The wedding ceremony has evolved significantly over the past decade and what might have been considered 'non-traditional' a few years ago, is now the norm. In terms of location, we do far more wedding ceremonies outdoors (at wineries, in vineyards and intimate gardens) and at venues than we do in church settings ... a total reversal of the 'traditional' ceremony.
We're pretty lucky to live and work here in Niagara where we've got a multitude of ceremony locations to choose from ... including resplendent winery vineyards, lush gardens, glass atriums AND exquisite old stone churches!
We hope you enjoy this look at a few of the wedding ceremonies we were blessed to be a part of last year!
We love wedding ceremonies out in the middle of a winery vineyard ...
If your wedding ceremony or reception requires a Chuppah, Mandap or Canopy, we’ve got you covered … literally!
Our unique custom-made frame base is a flexible, one-of-a-kind design which allows us to build any style onto it … birch logs, bamboo, curly willow, etc. From the base design, we can add flowers, foliages, hanging candles, fabric and lanterns.
Some of our most favourite venues in Niagara (think Pillar and Post, Riverbend Inn and Grand Victorian) have gardens on their property which are just perfect for tying the knot!
Queen's Landing in Niagara on the Lake has an open concept glass-enclosed atrium complete with stunning inlaid hardwood floor and chandelier which is often used for wedding ceremonies ...
There are also quite a number of beautiful old stone historic churches in Niagara on the Lake and Jordan (Roman Catholic, Anglican, Prebyterian) which we love for wedding ceremonies ...
We've even a couple of Greek Orthodox wedding ceremonies last year!
