Wedding Bells (West) - - Details -

FROM EMMA: Though El­liot and I moved to Bri­tish Columbia a year-and-a-half ago, we knew we had to get mar­ried in our home­town of Creemore, On­tario. The rolling hills of Creemore are so beau­ti­ful. We’ve known each other since high school, so get­ting mar­ried there was ex­tremely spe­cial. We started the laven­der farm as a fam­ily project the sum­mer be­fore the wed­ding, so it was all hands on deck to get the farm har­vested and wed­ding-ready in the weeks lead­ing up to the event. A bo­hemian and re­laxed back­yard wed­ding vibe was the goal. We wanted a chill evening and a fun sum­mer­time party for the guests. The cer­e­mony was a high­light of the day. Ev­ery­one was so re­laxed but ex­cited and we couldn’t stop smil­ing. See­ing all our favourite peo­ple to­gether with cock­tails in hand, cheer­ing us on, was so amaz­ing. All the laven­der ac­cents were in­cred­i­ble. El­liot’s mother used laven­der from the farm to make the flower girls’ head­bands. We also had laven­der cheese­cake from one of our favourite Creemore restau­rants, sa­chets filled with laven­der as favours for the guests and laven­der sprigs on ev­ery place set­ting. It truly was the per­fect ac­cent to the wed­ding decor and to top it off, it smelled won­der­ful. The clear-top tent was the crown­ing back­drop for the evening. Lots of string lights and the beau­ti­ful sum­mer night made the tent a cosy place to watch the stars and the fire­works at the end of the evening. The grooms­men and my brother-in-law had spent the en­tire pre­vi­ous day set­ting up the fire­works and it was an in­cred­i­ble show that seemed to last for­ever!
