Lush Florals, Niagara wedding florist, John Michaels wedding

To say it was cold on Valentines day 2015 would be an understatement.  I believe we hit -30 with the wind chill.  Do flowers like -30?  not so much.  With a lot of wrapping and protecting these precious flowers we made it to John Michaels and helped to create a stunning and romantic wedding.  Of course our friends Gala Decor added the lovely layers of linens and decor that sets this wedding apart.  The fabulous stationery for the day was… Read more »

Vintage Hotels Wedding, Lush Florals, Niagara wedding florist

Last Spring we exhibited at the Vintage Hotels Wedding Show.  Along with our friends Gala Decor, Liquid Entertainment, Defining Moments Stationery, Candy By Katie and The Warehouse we transformed the Royal Cambridge at Prince of Whales.  We worked with a watercolour theme bringing it into the stationary, the candy table and the varying shades of the centerpieces.  It was so much fun to take this idea and run with it in a neutral space. These gorgeous images of our work… Read more »

Brimstone Brewery wedding, The Sanctuary wedding, Fort Erie wedding, Blush and white white wedding, Lush Florals

Can you tell blush was the colour of 2015 for us?  THIS is how you do blush!  soft foliage, many textural blooms and accented with gold. (I am in love). Kayse and Steve were married at the sweetest little church (Holloway Bay Memorial) out by Point Abino in Ridgeway.  They even were able to take pictures by the iconic lighthouse.    Their reception was held at The Sanctuary which also houses Brimstone Brewery.  It is a great location for a… Read more »

I cannot believe I am just posting this shoot.  It shows what a crazy year 2014……………and 2015 has been. A group of fabulously talented vendors came together to create a shoot to commemorate the Olympics in Russia, 2014.  It was the coldest day of the year, flowers froze and our model was the biggest trouper ever.  Would I change a thing? Nope! Here is our fabulous team: Photography: Joel Hannigan Photography Styling: Amanda Cowley Sweet Events Decor: Gala Decor Stationary:… Read more »

Kate Spade inspiration, Lush Florals, floral ring

A sweet little bridal shower shoot was planned with a handful of fabulous ladies.  Kate Spade seemed like a natural fit for this girly shower.  We used Bold bright flowers for the fun champagne filled Niagara party.  Where better to pop the vino than at Penninsula Ridge Winery.  One of my favorite elements of this shoot was the sweets table.  Sweet Celebrations created a funky eclair tower and cotton candy.  We provided a flower filled frame backdrop with paper accents… Read more »

Lush Florals, Cave Springs Vineyards, Niagara wedding Florist, marsala wedding

Sometimes I just need to create, just for myself.  No models, major set-ups, contracts….just for me.  I wanted to try out a few new styles, have fun with flowers and have it captured perfectly.  I think my friend Daniel Ricci Wedding Photography helped me out with that.  He let the flowers sing in his images, which is all I can ask for.   Our first look was inspired by my latest obsession: Marsala.  (another fancy word for a shade of… Read more »

What a treat to work with these two.  Such a sweet couple and a groom who gave it his all during wedding set-up day of.  I just love it when the groom offers to help : ) The fantastic images by Zekar Photography show that rain on your wedding day can be beautiful, as well as arctic temperatures on a May day. (the flowers love it!) We created rustic yet romantic centerpieces of delphinium and curly willow alternated with low… Read more »

Lush Florals, Niagara wedding florist, Peach and blush wedding

A European sunset inspired the colour pallette for this lovely September wedding.  We blended shades of peach, blush and even some red into the centerpieces to portray the sun’s last glint of the day.  Layers of ranunculus, dahlia, garden roses and spray roses perfected the bride’s soft rounded bouquet. We were very excited to use our new “like real” pillar candles to line the aisle at the church.  So real in fact that the groom thought I had used real… Read more »

Niagara wedding florist, Wedding Show, Lush Florals

This year we were lucky enough to have Eva Derrick capture our Niagara Wedding Studio Booth.  Gala Decor, Liquid Entertainment and Dynasty Limousine along with Lush created a gorgeous display.  We mixed soft blush and peach which are so popular this year with bold marsala.  I am a huge fan of adding a pop of colour to a peach and blush colour scheme, what do you think? We also had a great deal of help from our fabulous friends Defining… Read more »

Lush Florals, Niagara wedding florist

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… Read more »
