Sarah + Sumit at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co.

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!

Flowers for “The Good Book” launch party

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.

How apropos!!

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!

Bronwen + Mark: Niagara Winery Wedding at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co.

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 ...
