Crisp cool air, cinnamon coloured grape vines, the last few fall leaves drifting to the ground. Late November is absolutely gorgeous in wine country, and Anna’s wedding proved just that.   When I think back to the planning of Anna and Ricardo’s wedding I most distinctly remember her father.  A plant aficionado and greenhouse grower who really kept me on my toes about cut flower availability and blooming times.  Sometimes moments like that make me thankful for my horticulture years… Read more »

Julie and Paul had a peach and blush masterpiece of a wedding set in amongst the vines at Southbrook Vineyards.  An arbor draped in eucalyptus greeted the couple after a walk down the aisle which was lined in hanging blooms.  The dreamy tent was draped in flowing fabric and long rows of undulating flowers on wooden runners finished the breathtaking reception. Christine Lim’s pictures speak of the dreamy atmosphere and the loving couple.  Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of… Read more »

Ravine Vineyards wedding, winery wedding, Niagara wedding florist, Niagara florist, Lush Florals

Wedding dreams are made of long harvest tables, natural and cascading bouquets, wineries in the fall, mixed metallic containers and blush blooms. (At least mine are) Alexandra had me in love with her wedding from the moment she detailed her plans.  Her Ravine Vineyards Wedding was to be held in the Wine cellar at a long harvest table (sigh).  They were to be married beside the vineyard under a canopy with hanging roses (double sigh).  She would carry a cascading… Read more »

Meredith was a bride that from the very beginning was a complete dream.  She loved our work and booked us without even meeting.  Plans came together without a hitch and her wedding design was just breathtaking.  Then came the rain….alot of it. When planning an outdoor wedding you have to think that there is a small…minuscule possibility of rain.  All outdoor venues have a plan, we as florists have a plan as do the decorators.  Although Meredith’s dream ceremony did… Read more »

Lush Florals Niagara wedding floris

For Our second look at the photoshoot I created a free-form coral and blush bouquet with accents of burgundy as well as a deep fuchsia and pale pink bouquet. With pink being such a huge colour for 2015 I wanted to take a slight twist and add some other colour options for brides to consider.  Coral pairs nicely with blush and fuchsia…who knew!?

Lush Florals, Backyard wedding, Niagara wedding florist

I have known Amy since she was barely able to walk.  We grew up together, our houses side by side.  Naturally I HAD to create Amy’s wedding flowers and they had to be perfect. Amy had a big fancy hall wedding planned and was sweating out the details when she just said forget it.  This couple is as relaxed and country as it gets, so somehow this big hall wedding just wasn’t going to work.  There needed to be more… Read more »
