Tuyet + Grant recently celebrated their nuptials in an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. in Lincoln. If you're a regular reader of the blog, you already know how much we love The Good Earth ... a little slice of heaven on earth!
The floral colour palette was based on 'Spirit' featuring primarily fucshia and chartreuse. Floral ingredients included hydrangea, dahlias, pink heather, green pepperberries, orchids and spray roses.
Best wishes to Tuyet + Grant as they begin their marriage life together!

Sarah + Sumit celebrated their nuptials outdoors in Niagara's wine country at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. in Lincoln. If you're a regular reader of the blog, you already know how much we love The Good Earth ... a little slice of heaven on earth!
Sumit's background is Indian and the blending of his and Sarah's cultures is such a beautiful love story. It was an intimate affair that was very big on gorgeous, rich and saturated colour!
Feast your eyes on this colour palette ... it's our 'Passion' with an Indian spin ... plus some gold and copper thrown in for kicks! A perfect late summer palette that's also reflective of Sumit's family heritage.
The colour palette ... rich reds, deep burgundies, passionate pinks ... lovin' it!
The matching bridesmaid's bouquet ... also very yummy!
Our wrought iron Shepherd's Hooks are so versatile ... they look right at home here lining the aisle at Sarah + Summit's wedding ceremony in one of the gardens at The Good Earth.
The reception table centerpieces consisted of a trio of mixed height satellite arrangements in the aforementioned lush and rich hues of red, merlot and burgundy.
Lots of delicious details to love here also ... how cute are these little Jasmine tea and strainer wedding favours!
We wish blessings on Sarah + Sumit as they begin their marriage journey!

Our good friend Nicolette and her band of merry food alchemists over at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. launched their first ever cookbook this weekend! We're so happy and excited for them!!!
We jumped at the chance to flex our creative muscles and come up with some funky, fresh, foodie-themed flower arrangements for the cookbook launch party!
So ... where to start? We went to the market of course!! We came back to the studio with our mitts full of raw ingredients like okra, spring onions, jalapeno peppers, swiss chard, potatoes and raddishes ... and then proceeded to marry them with flowers.
Check out the pics below ... 'The Good Book' is pumped full of delicious Niagara delights AND it's a beauty to look at with mouth-watering photos of each recipe (some of the 'mood' images were taken by our close pal and uber talented photog Nataschia Wielink) ... be sure to pick one up!
Dahlias and Swiss Chard ...
Shampoo Maracas and Okra ...
Cobra Lillies and Spring Onions ...
Fire-Engine Red Dahlias and Mini-Tomatoes ...
Yellow Dahlias and Jalapeno Peppers ...
Sunflowers and Mini-Cucumbers ...
These awesome cork log arrangements featured sunflowers, Annabelle hydrangeas (from our organic cutting garden), potatoes and raddishes!

If you've never been to The Good Earth or met Nicolette Novak, it's an experience you must put on your 'to do' list when in Niagara!
The Good Earth is not merely a place to visit ... it is something to be experienced. A tranquil slice of heaven in the shade of the Beamsville Bench wine appellation of Niagara!
This weekend, Bronwen + Mark and their guests had a glorious chance to 'experience' the Good Earth for themselves! The couple were married amongst the vast gardens on the property and later celebrated in upscale garden party fashion with delicious delectables including wood-fired roasted pork and ... an oyster bar!
Side note ... Bronwen is the daughter of Rodney Clark of Toronto's famed Rodney's Oyster House.
Working with an organic and natural feeling green and white palette, we designed our pieces for Bronwen + Mark using flowers such as peonies, roses, hydrangea and viburnum. We 'garnished' our pieces with various cuttings from our organic gardens here at the Studio ... including lady's mantle, astilbe, fern fronds, mulberry springs and oregano.
Elements included birch logs, cork vessels, wrought iron Shepherd's Hooks and glass Mason jardinieres! There's nothing quite like an early summer outdoor winery wedding in Niagara ... you have to experience it for yourself!
Welcome to the Good Earth Food and Wine Company ...
Browen's bouquet … featuring peonies, pieris and japanese painted ferns and wrapped in a gorgeous silvery-blue-pewter satin ribbon.
Coordinating bridesmaid's bouquet ... slight more petite and with a darker ribbon.
Our custom-made Shepherd's Hooks have turned out to be quite a hit amongst our brides this year!
Isn't she angelic? I think I say this about every flower girl!
Here comes the bride!
We created tablescapes of flowers for the 32 foot long mission-style seating arrangements ...
Four of these little cloches marked the tables ... apples, grapes, pears and mulberries!
We cozied up one of the garden seating areas with these birch log lantern standards ...
