This summer I was fortunate enough to be a part of two of my best friends weddings. The second being this past weekend at my best friends parents beautiful farm just north of Port Hope, Ontario. I knew in the months building up to the wedding that her elegant, but earthy style would come through in all of the details of the wedding. I could rant and rave about her attention to detail, her loyalty to her vision and most of all the importance that everything reflected her and Alex’s personalities and love for one another, but I won’t. I will let the images speak for themselves. (Note: I was fortunate enough to steal my bouquet from the wedding – flowers from Wild Lark Studio, Toronto).
Theme parties and weddings sometimes have a way of becoming tacky and tend to get out of hand very quickly, but when I met Lina I knew… this wedding was all about the details. Clean and inviting touches of blush, champagne and ivory. Vintage luggage to hold gifts and cards. A vintage map for a seating chart and miniature luggage tags for escort cards. The couple added a personal touch by using places they had traveled to as the table names. As you can see it was all about the details.

a couple of years ago, on a warm summer evening, i remember sitting on my parents back patio talking to my mum about who of my friends i thought were going to get engaged first.
there was no question in my mind: my bestfriend miranda and her boyfriend alex.
after witnessing, first hand, their ‘courtship’ and then their budding relationship, i knew – alex was the one and the love that they share is real.
it’s funny because i think friends and family know the outcome of a relationship before the person who is actually in the relationship does.
when he finally proposed i cried. i literally sat on my couch in my condo and cried.
not because i was sad, but because i knew it. i knew it. i knew it. i knew it. i called it!
they’re so perfect and wonderful together – i couldn’t have asked for a more perfect match for my bestfriend.
when we finally sat down to discuss the vision for her save the dates and wedding invitations words like rustic, vintage and classic kept coming up. they’ve traveled all over the world together, planted trees out west together, recently moved to calgary together and have this rustic earthy style that’s indicative of their interests and personalities. i absolutely love these save the dates, but not nearly as much as i love who they’re for:
