Elegant And Natural Wedding

This wedding was the highlight of a weekend full of festivities. A welcome party the night before gave old family and friends a chance to reconnect and new acquaintances the opportunity to meet. That in itself would have been more than enough but the best was yet to come.

This elegant and natural wedding is absolutely flawless! Simplicity mixed with stunning seems to be the perfect mix for making a wedding shine. See more in the full gallery here, photographed by Jessica Rose Photography.

Perfect Day For A Wedding

It was a wonderful August summer’s day made comfortable by a gentle breeze. We were surrounded by those closest to us as we said our vows under a canopy of trees and elegant foliage. After dinner in the barn, comprised of locally selected produce, we danced the night away to an amazingly talented ten piece band. Looking back to that day, it would not have been possible without all the people who contributed to the occasion. We both felt so encouraged by the love and support as we started the rest of our lives together.

Talk To Your Guests

I wish we had a little more time during the dinner. We made it about half way through saying hello to each of our guests, then we needed to move onto speeches! Once the dinner was done my husband and I made it a point to say hello to the rest of our guests during the dancing. So, it all worked out in the end. Brides, your guests appreciate it so much when you take the time to say hello and acknowledge their presence! Especially those who have traveled so far.

Let’s just say my mom and I did a lot of the details ourselves! So, that saved money right off the bat. I designed and screen printed the menus on the napkins. We also ironed on our wedding logo I designed to pillows. Not to mention we made our own terrariums! It was a very artsy labor of love on our part, lots of DIY’s! You can be so creative! When you are inspired by something, take it, run with it, and make it your own! You will save yourself room within your budget, and put it towards things that you can’t do yourself.

Sweet Vintage Yellow Wedding

blush and white bridesmaid bouquet @weddingchicks

This wedding is so super cute, we can’t get enough! From the typewriter note that said “meet me at the altar” to all of the carefully selected vintage decor borrowed from family members, the day is one of a kind and oh so beautiful.

This couple is so sweet and a little rain couldn’t even begin to ruin their day with such beautiful and bright spirits in attendance. Feel free to fawn over more of the details from their sweet vintage yellow wedding in the full gallery here, photographed by AMBphoto.

Wedding Dreams Do Come True

From the moment we became engaged, we knew what was most important to us. Our wedding would be personal, brimming with love, laughter, and praise of the Lord, and reflect who we are as a couple. Somehow, all of our wedding dreams came true. We are blessed to have shared our personal vows in my parent’s backyard in Merrickville, Ontario. We feel tremendously fortunate to call the place we were married “our family home.” There is great love there, and it meant the world to us to preserve it.

Be Inspired By You

For our decor, we were inspired by our life together and what we love to do – spend time outside, thrift shop, play games, dance to our records, choose colorful art, and eat great food. In addition, we wanted our guests, the people we love and cherish most, to feel our love for them. Personal details were very important to us. As a result, we pulled special items, photographs, and furniture from our home and the homes of our relatives. Graham and I share an unwavering love of antiques, and it felt special to incorporate personal belongings into our decor.

Thrift Your Heart Out

With the help of my beautiful bridesmaids, we thrifted all of our vases, later to hold the fresh cut flowers of Full Bloom Floral Design. We made wooden signs out of my dad’s scrap barn wood and made a seating chart out of old antique windows. Our centerpieces consisted of florals, table numbers made of scrabble pieces (one of our favorite board games), and vintage trinkets, some as small as tea tins and some as large as sewing machines. It was also important to us that our wedding capture our unique interests. Craft beer, Polaroid cameras, and the color yellow were obvious themes.

Embrace The Imperfections

This is going to sound cliché, but I wouldn’t change a thing. That isn’t to say that things didn’t go wrong. I left Graham’s boutonniere in our hotel room. We forgot two bags of petals, intended for the aisle of our ceremony. It rained incessantly from the moment we finished our photos until the moment we said our goodbyes. But none of it mattered. It was the most perfect day of our lives. To be honest, it’s three months later and we are still completely in awe. Small imperfections only made it feel more genuine (and funny)!
