Canadian Backyard Wedding

This relaxed Ontario wedding is all about style. Matthew from This Moment Forever sent me this wedding and I knew at first glance this one was so Ruffled. Their intimate affair took place at Kristin’s parents’ backyard in Ontario, Canada. Favors and most of the decor were made by Kristin, another great point such lovely DIY, budget conscious wedding. The groom, Andrew, wore jeans – an idea that I am sure many grooms out there will consider after seeing this!

Caterer: Howard the Butcher (Caledon East, ON)
Tent: Party Magic (Bolton, ON)

A few words from Kristin’s mom about her daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day:

The entire wedding (preparation, ceremony, photo shoot, and reception) took place at Kristin’s parent’s house, located in the country north of Brampton, Ontario. The ceremony was simple; the seats were bails of straw draped in white sheets; Andrew (the groom) built a rustic fence for a backdrop; the music was performed by Kristin’s family and friends (she’s one of eleven children, and they’re all quite musical). The photo shoot took place a few meters away from the ceremony on a grassy hill, and a few more choice spots (like a crumbly old house and some broken down walls) were also on location.

The reception was in a tent at the bottom of the hill – again, just a few minutes walk from the ceremony. The tent was surrounded by game areas, so the guests could play things like horseshoes and croquet while they mingled during cocktail hour. The decorations and favours were done by Kristin and her family (like the homemade applesauce and strawberry jam) as well as all the treats on the dessert table.

Big thanks to Matt from This Moment Forever for sending this incredible wedding!

Happy Halloween!

Have a fabulous Halloween!

Emma + Cameron’s Oregon Countryside Wedding

Loving this colorful wedding shot by the talented Oregon photographer Carl from Carl Zoch Photography!

A little bit from the bride, Emma:

We fell in love with the site at Garden Vineyards the very first time we saw it–even in the middle of December in the pouring rain. The old wooden train tressle at the road’s entry was also an incentive to go with the site–it’s just so cool! Our family and friends were coming from all over the country, so we thought Oregon’s countryside would be a special place, and it is just 20 miles from our Portland home.

The ceremony and reception were both held outdoors at the vineyard. The weather was dramatic but magical: on and off rain with bursts of sunshine and even a rainbow. A bagpipe piped us down the isle, a family friend was our officiant, and Cameron and I surprised each other with personal vows. We had a ring pillow made out of my great-great grandmother’s wedding dress, I made custom gold and freshwater pearl necklaces and earrings for my bridesmaids, and there were many other personal touches such as my grandmother’s wedding band and my late sister’s childhood doll necklace tucked into my bouquet that made the day true to us.

The flowers were by Liza Lubell and Heather Hollern of Quince Flowers–very very talented gals! Our wedding cake was made by a friend (my mom’s carrot cake with cream cheese frosting). My dress, Cameron’s suit and the bridesmaids all wore J Crew. I wore a vintage 1930′s headpiece and veil that I found from Paris 1900 in Los Angeles.
