There is nothing I love more than a spring winery wedding in Niagara. Blooms in abundance and the vineyards coming alive for the season. Denise came to me with a vibrant purple colour scheme and love for foliage and garlands. It was a perfect pairing for Sue Anne Staff Winery where their ceremony and reception took place. We created a natural flowing design for their ceremony arbor which stood up even on the windiest of days. We were so excited to work with Andrew Mark Photography, Simply Beautiful, Allure Hair and Makeup and Sweet Avenue Cakery on this wedding.
I would have to say hands down this was my favorite wedding of 2016. Why do I love it so? I think it was most importantly the easy going nature of this couple. They gave me a feeling and a vibe that they wanted to create and let me run with it. Mixed metallics (love), vintage flower vessels (love), barely there lavender and caramel with cream colour scheme (sigh…love)! No table was exactly alike as was no centerpiece. I loved incorporating so many goodies from my farmer in unexpected hues and textures.
Then on top of all of this I got to work with my seriously stellar stylist friend Amanda Cowley who coordinated and styled the heck out of this day. Wonder why I posted so many pictures? Reed Photography took so many amazing shots I simply could not choose.
The romantic blush and marsala colour scheme, the changing fall colours, the dripping ceremony florals…I simply loved everything about this wedding.
Sarah and Taylor were married at the Cave Springs Retreat building with their reception at Inn on the Twenty (which is one of our ultimate venue’s). They got to experience Niagara’s wine country at one of the most perfect times, with the leaves changing against the escarpment and in the twenty valley. This brunch wedding was packed with emotion and music. I simply love the feeling that Emily Foster Photography captured in her images.
This wedding was recently featured on Vineyard bride.
Sandra and David had a quaint and intimate wedding in the Cellar of Ravine Winery. It is the perfect place to host a small affair and is just dripping with a unique and cozy vibe.
If you are considering a Niagara wedding especially in off season this is a wonderful venue that still gives the vineyard feel (even in December). My friend Samantha from Darling Mine captured the simple yet elegant flowers we created. Enjoy!
A small intimate venue, rolling vineyards, exquisite food and romantic blooms: the making for a perfect Niagara wedding.
Emalie and Steve Were married at Vineland Estates Wedding in the spring. Emalie as open to some interesting combinations and undulating textures, it was a florists dream. Wood containers, hanging hyacinths and fragrant lily of the valley would define pure bliss for this gal. e also got to work with our friends sweet celebrations on this.

Every consultation I have I ask the bride what her favorite bloom for her wedding would be. The most common flower is obviously a peony. Who wouldn’t love these gorgeous large layers of soft fluffy petals? The downside to this love affair is the short time frame of availability (Late May-June locally). Karina and Kostya just squeaked into the last few weeks of availability for these beauties. More shocking is that they were coral!! FYI for all my late June brides…don’t bet on a coral peony. (they are one of the first colours to leave us for the season)
Karina and Kostya were married at Cave Springs Vineyards under a gorgeous garland of blooms. Karina carried a bouquet of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and sweet pea. Their Inn on the Twenty reception was filled with layers of blush, peach and coral blooms. I loved that they mixed up their centerpieces with a tall and short option. It creates tons of interest in the room (in my humble opinion). Decor was provided by our fabulous friends Gala Decor. Manifesto Photography did an excellent job capturing all of the pretty that went into this stunner of a wedding.
How I love creative photoshoots! The chance to work with different wedding vendors and go outside of your comfort zone. People often wonder why we do so many shoots as wedding vendors, because it is fun! We decided to go for a nautical/ Hamptons/ Preppy vibe for this creative shoot. We were all in love with the 2013 Pantone colour of the year (Emerald) and wanted to incorporate it with layers of navy, mint, lime and white. Enjoy!
While shopping for flowers for this shoot I spoted the cobra lily (green and white mottled bloom). I was in love and needed to incorporate it! In the wild this plant actually eats insects when they fall into it’s long tube….no worries, no insects here! Okay plant nerd rant over.
Thanks to the amazing vendors who worked very hard to make this shoot perfect:
