[All Photos - The Grower's Daughter, and Family]
As promised, here are a few photos from our first wedding, my sister's, this past Friday.
I was in the wedding party, and when I wasn't busy with pictures and other duties, I was styling the set up for the reception which took place in the same barn afterwards. It was so busy that I just didn't have time to take as many photos as I would have liked, but I was busy with more important things!
It was quite literally the perfect day. The weather was as good as it could possibly be and everything went as planned and looked gorgeous. Really, the photos don't nearly do it justice.
Congratulations Rebecca and Nathan!
She was the most stunning bride in her antique white dress that was simple and elegant. Her veil was trimmed in pretty lace and she wore a simple strand of pearls. Isn't she gorgeous?
She carried a simple bouquet of luscious cream and soft pink peonies tied with lace.
The tables were simple with cream tablecloths, truffle brown napkins and a burlap table runner. The guests got homemade biscotti as a favour, which was made by my mom.
We stenciled the table runners with a monogram which really personalized them.
The front of the barn was decorated with old sap buckets full of white Hydrangeas and cream Garden Roses, as well as huge bundles of curly willow.
I used old windows as place settings and my chalkboards to write out the menus for the evening.
This was the entrance she walked through during the ceremony, and then all of us again later for the reception.
The head table was decorated with all of my old crates and ironstone, carriers and anything else I had stored in my garage!
I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes for dessert, which matched the cream and brown colours.
As well, I did her wedding cake. It's a vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream and a chocolate truffle filling between one layer and a Robin's egg blue buttercream filling between the other layer.
And because I couldn't resist - my son. He was the ring bearer and he was just the most handsome little guy ever! I was so proud.
