KELSEY WORMSTONE & KYLE BAYLISS
August 12, 2017
FROM KELSEY: It was really important to us that the wedding would bring to life the beautiful barn venue. We also wanted the decor to complement our outgoing personalities—we used big, bold colours such as crimson and navy, with lots of lush greenery. We filled the indoor reception space with candles and globe lights to set a romantic mood, and tied in the rustic vineyard outdoor setting using oversized centrepieces mimicking a garland running down the centre of the beautiful, large harvest tables. We had Scottish thistle
boutonnieres for the men. It was a special touch for Kyle’s family, who came all the way from Scotland. Many guests travelled from the U.K. to be with us, so naturally some of the women wore fascinators, as per British wedding tradition. We said, “I do” in the rain.
The ceremony was set outdoors among the vines and it started raining lightly as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle, but we still held the ceremony under the gazebo. It stopped raining shortly after the ceremony and a rainbow appeared! My dress may have been soaked, but it was worth every minute. After lightning struck the venue my family got creative. The power went out and we were left with only a generator for the evening. The family devised a kissing game—every time the lights went out, guests cheered and clinked their glasses for us to kiss. We made the most of it and it was utterly amazing!
