Katie The Bride:
It seemed like a perfect day, in fact it felt magical. We chose to get married in the field that we walk our dog in daily. It is such a beautiful field, with a stunning tree line back drop and perfect view of the sunset.
I created my own dress by matching a wedding dress topper, bought from Anthropologie’s wedding line BHLDN
with a simple wedding dress from Brides by Tara in Peterborough. The groom was dressed in a suit from Got Style
in Toronto. We wanted to keep it casual but classy so the groomsman wore navy pants with navy polka dot ties. The bridesmaids were dressed in a variety of cream/blush colours. Bridesmaids and brides hair was done by the very talented Angela Young. Makeup was done by the also very talented Britany Freeburn.
Rebecca Vanhoof, the groom’s aunt, was the wedding planner. She provided the ideas for the tent set up. Everything from the vintage gold candle holders to the massive picture wall, kissing game wheel, flower wall and individualized name cards at each place setting were her ideas. All decorations where homemade and yes, Rebecca and her husband made the pallet furniture in the lounge too! They also made the picture wall and massive kissing game wheel. With the help of her sisters they set up the entire tent, not missing a single detail. Not a sprig of rosemary turned on the wrong angle.
The brides aunt, Shirrill Freeburn, was responsible for the appetizers and cookies. She made over 900 homemade cookies to make the brides cookie bar dream come true. Cam Green provided delicious homemade gelato to compliment the cookies. HornDawgs from Pickering, Ontario, catered the delicious meal.
Flowers were done by Kathy Taylor.
The wedding ceremony took place at Immaculate Conception Church by Father Bill. Music was played by the very talented Melissa Payne and Cathy Young. Speeches were heartfelt and funny. Toasts to the groom father (who had passed a few years previous) were an emotional moment. The bride and groom chose to have their wedding date on the grooms dads birthday, August 22nd as it was and will always be a very special day.
Photography was done by the very talented and creative Jessica Latone of J.Lee Photography
. She provides such a unique, fun feel to all of her pictures. Not missing a single detail of the day!
