Heather + Mike's Niagara winery wedding took place at the historic Saint Mary of the Assumption Church just a few kilometers from Hernder Estate Winery where they later invited their guests to an evening of wine, food and fun!
For Heather + Mike's reception, we designed a mix of tall and low elegant romantic centrepieces that were full and flowery featuring shades of deep purple, grape, vibrant green, white and light purple in our Breeze palette. The room was loaded with green and white hydrangeas, cymbids, purple roses, deep purple vanda orchids ...
Heather's gorgeous bridal bouquet … mulled purple and white featuring Picasso callas and lady slipper and cymbidium orchids.
The altar flowers at the ceremony featured lots of hydrangeas accented with green amaranthus, bear grass, roses and autumn flowering clematis from our studio's own organic cutting gardens!
We designed a mix of tall and low elegant and romantic centrepieces and added plenty of warm candlelight ...

Beth + Adam were wed in an outdoor Niagara winery wedding on a breezy and cool September Sunday afternoon! After the ceremony, guests were invited to an evening dinner reception in the converted barn at Hernder Estate Winery in St. Catharines. The winery’s barn is a grand structure of stone, wood and glass and lends a very rustic feel to a wedding celebration in Niagara’s wine country
Beth's colour palette for the big day featured muted tones of soft purples, greens, blush, soft white and champagne ... a very modern vintage 'Anthropologie' type feel.
We design the florals using roses, hydrangeas (purple, annabelle and antique), dahlias, lisianthus and all kinds of gardeny bits such as sedum 'autumn joy', mint, herbs, lavender foliage. Other textural and off-the-beaten-path elements included succulents, cork bark, various wooden 'slices', canning jars and burlap runners (provided by the bride).
Beth's bridal bouquet wins the award for the most sentimental bouquet of 2011 ... the antique lace we wrapped the stem of her bouquet in was part of her mother's own wedding dress. As well, the gold heart locket wrapped around the stem was given to Beth by her father before he passed away earlier this year. Taking parts of the past into a new future ... it's heart warming! :)
Each of the full floral table centrepieces was designed in a different vintage or antique vessel and was surrounded by brightly lit votive candles in canning jars!
