Shabby Chic Canadian Wedding
Sophie, the bride, sent over her wedding to share with you all and it is so gorgeous! A really cool fact that I love: both the bride’s sister’s band and the groom’s band played at the reception! Many gracious thanks to Evan McMaster for the wonderful photographs!
From the stylish bride, Sophie: We wanted a very relaxed feeling something that felt like a family picnic. The style we aimed for was vintage meets shabby chic.
We didn’t have a color scheme per se but we were sticking with creamy colors like ivory, peach, light seafoam green, those types of colors. There were lots of DIY projects for our wedding, we made two large monogrammed letters (S for Sophie and L for Laurent) that hung from two large barn doors; we made all of the bridesmaids bouquets; we also made all the utensil packages.
We also made the bunting banner that hung behind the head table; we made all the flower arrangements on the tables; we made the photobooth sign; all the cakes on all the tables were homemade by different friends and family; our wedding cake was made by one of my best friends; the table markers were another DIY… the list goes on.

wow….very beautiful! i love the thank you bunting, & decor! so cute
Amazing!! I am getting married in 12 days and hope my wedding feels this relaxed and magical.
Yay! Somewhere relatively close to my home in St. John’s, Newfoundland! Congrats to the couple, especially for making their day look amazing – I know how hard it can be in a smaller Atlantic Canadian city where resources are uber-limited. What an inspiration!
Love Love Love her dress! Never seen anything like that!
Really good photography! All the images are amazing, looks like a fantastic wedding!
This wedding is so beautiful, the DIY projects turned out wonderful! Great photography, thanks for the post!
love the dress and the barn.
Such a delightful wedding! They look like they had a blast and the photographer captured all of that beautifully!
This wedding makes me so proud…being a Canadian and all!
The rustic barn setting makes for a beautiful backdrop, especially with those flowers in lovely shades of pink! And the hats, did I mention how great those hats are?! <3
I LOVE rustic weddings!!
omg this is SO, SO beautiful!!!
Sophie- If your reselling your dress..please let me know!
Hi Desiree, I actually am reselling it… here is the link the listing!
so beautiful, this couple has great taste!
I absolutely love the bridesmaid dresses! I’m getting married in june 2011 and i would love to use those for my bridesmaids….it says that they are from Priscilla of Boston but i just cant find them. Could you give me the exact link to them?
Unfortunately, there is no link for them, I was lucky enough to get all of them at a Priscilla of Boston Sample sale. Good luck in your search!
Unfortunately, I purchased them at a sample sale, so there is not link for the dresses. Sorry about that 🙁 Good luck in your search !!
Now that I am planning my wedding. I’m looking in every nook and cranny for ideas and inspiration…and no matter what I do I cannot stop thinking about YOUR wedding Sophie! From your beautiful dance with your Dad to the corn bread in the dresser drawers, I loved every minute of it.
If you have time I’d love to go have coffee and pick your brain… give me a call anytime or call the shop and leave derek your number for me.
Thank you soo much Melissa! I just left the message with Derek 🙂 Talk to you soon xo
Cute and stylish but also so pulled together. Beautiful photography that captures the quirkiness. Love that barn! Sarah, London
My name is Melanie and I am thinking of getting married at “the music barn”. I am from New Brunswick but live in Calgary. I have a few questions I would like to ask you. I could send you my email or you send me yours….not sure how to do it via this website, but its worth a try!
Thanks for your time,
