Here’s what we’ve been up to!
Back in January we had the pleasure of working with Asian Fusion Weddings to create this shoot inspired by Chinese New Year. We created this traditional table scape, as well as a modern set, both inspired by Oriental design.
We were inspired by Ikebana style for our traditional pieces, emphasizing shape, line and form as well as minimalism. The use of line was created by grouping of snake grass, with a focal point being created by clustering cymbidium orchids in a deep red.
In Chinese culture red plays a vital role, it is associated with success, loyalty, honor, fertility, and love, amongst others. Because of this, decorations at Chinese weddings are generally in red, which we stayed true to in our design, while combining with gold vases, which is also a symbolic colour, portraying wealth and fortune.

Sophisticated Elegance sums up A & V’s magical day. The couple came to us with a vision of black and white, romance mixed with drama and a hint of blush, we knew we would have so much fun working with them to bring their dream to life.
The Trump Hotel could not have been more perfect for the monochromatic theme, and acted as the perfect canvas for our designs. We layered beautiful hydrangeas, peonies and roses to create the beautiful cloud like arrangements.
Black vases, and luxe silver linens added richness to the room, while beautiful crystal accents completed the scene. One of our favourite details was the lavish floral table we designed for Bobette & Belle beautiful cake creations.
Gorgeous pink peonies, white orchids and stunning Toronto views made C & R’s day a dream come true. We loved working with the talented ladies of Rebecca Chan Weddings on this event at the beautiful Shangri La Hotel in downtown Toronto.
Floor to ceiling windows offered amazing natural light, creating a heavenly glow on the ceremony space. We designed beautiful pastel arrangements to sit atop traditional Chinese vases provided by Plate Occasions.
Rose petals lined the aisle for the beautiful bride to walk down with her stunning white orchid bouquet. After the ceremony the room was quickly transformed into a reception space, with beautiful blush table linens and cotton candy soft blooms. What a stunning day!
Everything is coming up roses with this rose-inspired, pretty-in-pink photo shoot photographed by Melanie Rebane Photography. Our beautiful branding was taken to the next level in this La Vie En Rose shoot where we were able to apply our marketing to this stunning wedding theme. The hand-painted rose motif seen throughout was illustrated by Wedluxe’s editor in chief Angela Desveaux.
We focused on using beautiful garden and spray roses in a variety of pink hues to really make a statement, and keep within our brand. We feel roses never go out of style and look great paired with almost any other blooms.
Opulent details in the plates and flatware by Plate Occasions were the perfect addition to our lush table scape, and were the perfect canvas for the stunning sweets by The Rolling Pin, and teas from The Tea Emporium. So Pretty in Print applied the gorgeous graphics of our branding created by Wedluxe to the invitation and stationery suite, which tied everything together beautifully. Even the chairs were adorned with floral decals to really make an impact.
Girly-girls are sure to be smitten with the style elements, especially the frothy Vera Wang gown and fairytale-like jewellery from the ever-talented jewelry designer Tara Fava. We loved being able to expand on our brand by creating this ultra-feminine, pink-on-pink palette with glamorous gold details. Here at The Social Rose there is no such thing as too much pink!

Soft blooms, lush greenery and romantic details are what brought this whimsical styled shoot together, along with an incredibly talented group of vendors. The Social Rose brought to life the magic of the classic novel The Secret Garden at the beautiful Madsen’s Greenhouse Banquet and Chapel.
Layers of pink hued florals and a variety of foliages created the stunning oasis, with pops of gold and blue in the table scape and romantic candlelight to complete the intimate setting. The beautiful plates by Plate Ocassions contrasted nicely with our soft blooms, and antique gold accents added the perfect amount of elegance.
The magic was in the details, with stunning stationery by So Pretty in Print and sweets by Sweet Regards, every tiny detail brought the beauty of the story to life. A three tier floral fountain we created for the gorgeous cake creation was the cherry on top of this magical shoot.
Sweet glass terrarium favors, and antique keys added a Victorian accent while natural materials like moss and wood brought in an organic feel keeping to the theme of the enchanted garden. We had so much fun with this shoot and it today still remains one of our favourites!
