Fine Art Creative with Photographer Ally Kristensen / Hamilton Niagara Wedding Florist

July 15, 2015  |  blog, style shoots & Inspiration

This week here at SGD we’ve been doing a little summer cleaning as we prepare for a very busy August and September. But today we are filled to the brim with oodles of loveliness as we share one of our beautiful collaboration with photographer Ally Kristensen. We can’t get over the gorgeousness of our 2 very distinctly different floral crowns adorned by the very sweet Malissa Otting. Ally effortlessly captured a romantic spirit with Malissa adorning almost nothing but our luscious ruby red peony floral crown. While our sage ranunculus crown and Malissa’s upscaled vintage wedding gown elude to a more innocent time. Both utterly gorgeous!

Have an amazing Wednesday and here’s to a fabulous weekend to come! Cheers & as always oodles of love xoDSCF3575-Edit_DSC6362

Cyndie & Mark wed at Ridley College | Hamilton Niagara Wedding Florist

Cyndie & Mark wed at Ridley College | Hamilton Niagara Wedding Florist

I have always wanted to attend a wedding in an old Scottish Castle. With a little thanks to Sue Gallo Designs couple Cyndie and Mark, my wish kinda came true…and I didn’t even have to leave home.

Mark had attended Ridley College in St. Catherine’s as a lad, and both were over the moon excited about exchanging vows in the Schools Private Chapel. They both gushed about how beautiful the chapel was on the very first day I met with them. But they never told me it felt like an old Scottish Castle Chapel. I was in love with the space as soon as I entered it’s arched doorway. The hallowed hall was beautiful, warm and  filled with so much tradition. I can truly see why this sweet couple wanted to start their new life together in this magical and meaningful space.

Here is a sneak peek into their beautiful wedding day so elegantly captured by Heidi Ram of Ribbons & Twine Photography.a839d78463a8c1a4631f215e2c23dad0c1872509e89fc696f467543d577ad36a01787fe42b94aa900475b2bbd289cfab2fab8573c0086b853d503d1a16b9843b62ef8bd56e1e8a419a563ba8eac11931071ce74ea3940fb003810815312b71c95bba114f54cb6336b03de441684bf816 Read More

Joan & David Wed | Junebug Weddings Feature

Joan & David Wed | Junebug Weddings Feature

June 18, 2015  |  Ancaster Mill, blog, Press

We were thrilled to discover Joan & David’s romantic Ancaster Mill Wedding featured today on the wedding blog Junebug Weddings. 

Sweet as can be Sue Gallo Designs couple Joan and David were wed last summer in the Mill’s outdoor chapel and dined in the Falls View Dining room.  With late summer dahlia, roses, eucalyptus and trailing jasmine vines in pops of oranges, pinks and corals the florals were simple and yet sweet. I truly loved the simplicity of her gorgeous bouquet and the sweet notes this crafty couple wrote on each of the up cycled bottles.  We are utterly smitten with how beautifully Eyekahfoto captured their wedding.

Sarah & Dan wed at the Ancaster Mill | Hamilton Niagara Wedding Florist

June 15, 2015  |  Ancaster Mill

We had the most inspiring weekend over here at Sue Gallo Designs, and shared in so much love as some fabulous SGD couples were wed.  We welcome Monday by sharing another SGD couple Sarah & Dan’s sneak peek photos from the ever so talented photographer Jenn Kavanagh.

 Sarah & Dan were wed in the Governor’s Room at the Ancaster Mill earlier this spring. Accents of bright blues, greens with pops of bright yellow give a sense of whimsy to Sarah & Dan’s simple but very romantic spring wedding. We are simply smitten by the images Jenn captured of their wedding day. Photos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotos by: www.jennkavanagh.comPhotography ~ Jenn Kavanagh Photography

Fine Art Shoot with Ally Kristensen Photography | Hamilton Niagara Wedding Florist

DSC5424-EditHow exciting to wake up on a Monday morning to find this lovely little creative in my in box. I had the joy of creating a stunning spring  floral crown {one of my favourites by far to date} for one of my favourite photographers Ally Kristensen. Ally as always, gave me free range when it came to choosing the florals for the shoot. All I was give was an image of the gown and a description of the orchard… and then I was off to the flower market. I couldn’t resist the sweet fragrance of Lilly of the Valley at market that day. They truly are the essence of spring. Along with  phalenopsis orchids, aster, sweet pea, yellow billy balls and honeysuckle vine… the floral crown was finished and simply perfect.

  As usual, the images Ally captured for her fine art apple orchard shoot are just gorgeous. Ally’s stunning model Starr Bowes simply looks angelic! What a perfect way to start a week…. with gorgeous inspiration!DSC5417DSC5418-4DSC5422-EditDSC5473-2DSC5460DSC5462-2DSC5409DSC5533-EditDSC5521DSC5438
