carolyn and grant…ravine

The outdoor wedding of Carolyn and Grant could not have been more perfect. Amazing weather, gorgeous location, and, of course, stunning flowers! These two were married among the vines of Ravine Winery in St. David’s, Ontario, with the reception to follow under the tend beside the winery. The inspiration for this wedding was no doubt the winery itself, with a whimsical and natural style with a sophisticated twist. Ivories, creams and blush were prominent in this beautiful Niagara wedding.

At the ceremony, mason jars with various blooms lined the aisle. Over at the reception, long harvest tables were set up with a collection of carefully planned jars which sat in clusters of similar blooms to the ceremony flowers. Small sterling silver oil lights were weaved among the arrangements. The flowers that were used for this wedding included hydrangea, garden roses, dahlias, lisianthus, spray roses, astilbe, and trichelium.

It was a truly beautiful wedding! Congratulations Carolyn and Grant!

jessica and cabrel…southbrook

Jessica and Cabrel’s day started with unsettled skies, but turned out to be a gorgeous wedding in the end. With stunning whites and ivory among the vines of Southbrook Winery in Niagara on the Lake, their modern wedding matched perfectly with the location. White hydrangea trees were scattered throughout the ceremony and reception, while freshly cut greens were used for centrepieces.

For the bride and bridesmaids bouquets, bunches of astilbe were put together for a romantic look. The ceremony took place inside of Southbrook, in a light and airy room, overlooking the vineyard. The outdoor reception was held under a tent behind the winery. The centrepieces that Jessica and Cabrel chose were tall vases of fresh cut greens from the bride’s backyard, stemmed cylinder candles and clusters of hydrangea and astilbe. A row of beautiful hydrangea lined the head table, cascading to the floor. Light, crisp, and airy enraptured this modern wedding at Southbrook.

Congratulations Jessica and Cabrel!

ellen and steve

One of the many perks of living near the Niagara Escarpment and the numerous vineyards that our region has to offer is the gorgeous settings we sometimes find ourselves in. Our latest wedding happen to be both along the escarpment and looking into the vineyards at Cave Springs. Ellen and Steve were married in an intimate and private wedding, in the rustic and natural appeal of the vineyards. Their reception was later held overlooking the Jordan Hollow, at the Inn on the Twenty in Jordan Village. The flowers that were used included hydrangea, lavender roses, dahlias, garden roses, stock, lisianthus, and clematis, with white, ivory and purple as their colours of choice. For the ceremony, two classic arrangements on dark wooden pillars stood near a tranquil pond, while the guests chairs were draped with dark purple fabric and small arrangements. Over at Inn on the Twenty, arrangements in flirt vases were placed on each of the guest tables, with a larger piece on the head table. Various candles in sterling votives and vases were placed around the room to create a warm atmosphere. The purple linens and charger plates were supplied by Simply Beautiful decor.

Congratulations Ellen and Steve!

sarah and jeff

Sarah and Jeff were married on June 22, 2013 in Niagara on the Lake, with the ceremony at St. Marks and a dinner and dance to follow at Queen’s Landing, in the Imperial Room.

Their soft blush, ivory and creams were beautifully accented with deep pink, rich burgundy and sparkling gold, a perfect palette for Queen’s Landing in this timeless and classic wedding.

For the ceremony, Sarah and Jeff chose large manzanita trees for the front of the church, with hanging hydrangeas and peonies and floating candles alternating throughout the branches to create a warm and romantic feel. Over at the reception, Simply Beautiful provided the delicate golden linens, burgundy napkins, and gold chiavari chairs. For the guest tables, mirrored circles were placed down first, while three circular arrangements of peonies, hydrangea, garden roses, and small spray roses were laid on top. The centrepieces were then lit up with a variation of stemmed cylinder candle holders, and small sterling votives surrounding the base.

Congratulations Sarah and Jeff!
