This wedding was full of sweet, heartfelt details celebrating love, family and honouring heritage.
The farmhouse at Cambium Farms was bustling with activity when I arrived to deliver the bouquets. Amongst the giddy excitement of bridal party members getting hair and makeup done, were close family and friends busily crafting the prettiest dreamcatchers that were set to decorate the barn. To celebrate Celina's First Nations heritage, we included symbolic loon and turkey feathers in her bouquet and wrapped it's handle with a braid of fragrant sweetgrass. A family processional preceded the bride and her father; each of the ladies carried a pretty posy and the men wore buttonholes of greenery and berries. Celina and Mike's siblings followed, carrying a simple birch Chuppah, an imporatant tradition in Mike's Jewish background, trimmed with trails of ribbon, cedar, sweetgrass and feathers.
Inside the barn, vintage milk glass compotes filled with coral charm peonies, feathery astilbe and lush garden roses adorned the guest tables, each highlighted by the cutest pair of handpainted antlers.
A huge thank you to Cynthia Martyn for dreaming up all the pretty details and Michelle from Mango Studios for the capturing all the beauty.
