Christal + Ki’s NIagara Winery Wedding at Vineland Estates Winery

We so looove intimate Niagara winery weddings ... it seems that we get to do quite a few in the fall season!

Vineland Estates Winery is one of the most beautiful intimate winery wedding venues in Niagara and it always feels like coming home when we get to work there. It's great to see Diane and the crew ... we've got a great history of designing/hosting the most beautiful weddings together!

Christal + Ki were married in an outdoor wedding ceremony on the deck overlooking the vineyards with the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario in the distance ... breathtakingly beautiful! After the ceremony, their guests were invited on a wine tour and then back to the Carriage House for dinner where a beautiful tablescape in the centre of the room was awaiting them!

This wedding featured hues from our 'Breeze' colour palette ... mainly purple with acents of green and white/cream and a touch of butter.

Flowers we designed with included green and white hydrangeas, stunning purple Vanda orchid blooms, dahlias, roses and pieris. Quirky elements included cork logs, Manzanita branches, giant slabs of walnut and canning jars with oodles of glass candlelight!

This tablescape in the Carriage House features loads of flowers, romantic candlelight, textural elements (such as wood slabs and cork logs) and the gleam of pristine glass (Mason jars and our signature glass candlesticks).

Heather + Colin at Vineland Estates Winery

Every once in a while we have to take a step back and realize how lucky we are to live and work in Niagara ... it's easy to miss the beauty around you when you see it daily.

One of the beautiful places we get to work at often this time of year is the dizzyingly gorgeous Vineland Estates Winery! That's where Heather + Colin were married this weekend ... lucky ducks!

Heather's colour palette featured mulled purple, champagne and silver ... just like our 'Breeze' palette. Her dress was knock-you-out amazing ... check out the pics below!!!

Our best wishes go out to Heather + Colin ... cheers to love, life and wedded bliss!!!

Heather's bridal bouquet was a perfect match for her silver wedding dress ... don't you just love the dress! Brilliant.

The Carriage House usually plays double duty ... wedding ceremony first, followed by a wine tour and tasting while staff quickly transform the space for the dinner reception when the guests return! It's quite a brilliant setup, really.

Melissa + Keith: Niagara Winery Wedding at Vineland Estates

Melissa + Keith were married in an intimate Niagara wedding ceremony in the Carriage House at the stunningly gorgeous Vineland Estates Winery this past Thanksgiving weekend.

After the ceremony, their guests were treated to a winery tour and tasting followed by an exquisite five course dinner ... one of the best views of Niagara's vineyards (with Lake Ontario in the distance) can be had from this Niagara wedding venue!

Melissa's color palette focused on hues of white, light purple, lavender and green with some 'accidental' pink thrown in. For a deliberate and clean look with a touch of whimsy, we used white orchids, green cymbids, green hypericum berries, white mini callas, light purple lisianthus, purple mokaras, white hydrangeas, sterling roses, looped foliage and curly willow. There were also lots of 'gardeny' bits from our studio organic cutting garden ... such as raspberry foliage, catmint and toad lilies (which were in perfect bloom this week!!).

Cheers and best wishes to Melissa + Keith ... it was a pleasure to be part of your special day!

We designed these two large altar arrangements to flank the ceremony space ... when the Carriage House was flipped for the reception, we reused them around the head table!

Melissa + Dave’s Niagara Winery Wedding at Vineland Estates

We were loving the rich, deep colours and textures of Melissa + Dave's wedding flowers this weekend ... lots of 'Ooooos' and 'Ahhhhhs' around the studio!!!

Vineland Estates Winery (if you've never been) is just one of those amazing places where everything somehow seems richer, fuller, more vibrant ... that's why we absolutely love working autumn weddings in The Carriage House! Melissa + Dave's wedding was no exception ... a beautiful intimate affair for twelve guests!

The colours of the flowers we were working with prominently featured our Passion theme in shades of deep red, burgundy and cerise. Luscious and romantic! 

Don't these colours just knock your socks off??? Unbelievable! Notice the little fluffy detailing on the stem of Melissa's bouquet ... we affectionately referred to it as a 'tutu' around the studio all weekend! A perfect match for the ruffles on Melissa's wedding dress ...
