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 co-ordinating bridesmaids bouquet in yellow, white and grey/pewter ...
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 ...

Natalija + Marc were married in a very intimate and traditional Serbian wedding ceremony and then invited their guests to the stunning (and recently renovated) Burlington Golf and Country Club for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.
Natalija’s colour palette was a fusion of 'Spirit' and ‘Breeze’ which included tones of deep pink and magenta and shades of purple subtly set off by white hydrangea.
We designed this wedding using roses, peonies, (purple, pink and white) hydrangea, orchids, freesia, lisianthus and the-most-wonderful smelling lily of the valley! We also raided our organic cutting garden for bits of foliage such as mock orange, bridal veil spirea and the like!
Natalija's gorgeous bride's bouquet …
The matching bridesmaid's bouquets ... a big bridal party with 8 girls! The bouquets looked amazing against the shimmery fabric of their dresses ... depending on the light, you'd see tones of lavender, purple, pink, magenta or even electric blue!
We hadn't been to the Burlington Golf and Country Club since their $14 million renovation ... but, wow, what a stunning transformation! This is one gorgeous building ... and they did it all right!
The accent colour, naturally provided by the venue decor, but also brought out in the Chiavari chairs, stationery and guest favors was ... gold! It was a soft, champagne gold and it set off the room amazingly well! We designed these centerpieces to be raised up above the sacred 'line-of-sight' (we call it the 'no-fly-zone'!) and this helped lend a certain physicality to the room. With low centerpieces, the room would've felt empty ... but the height of these centerpieces scaled down the vastness of the high ceiling just the right amount!
So much of the aesthetic of well executed wedding decor is in the details ... and Natalija + Marc's wedding was loaded with perfectly placed details! We particularly loved the vintage style menu stationery and boxed Godiva thank-yous!
