Winter Wonderland Wedding in the Snow: Briar & Simon
March 21, 2013
We may be finally edging our way into Spring but I couldn’t help but share this delicious winter wedding with you today. Rather than avoiding the enviable snow situation, Briar & Simon embraced it with a winter wonderland theme and blue colour scheme! The wedding was held at
Boynton Bros Farm in Ontario, Canada. The ceremony was held outside in the woods (brrr!) and the reception in on of the farm sheds (double brrr – these guys are HARDY!)
“Our wedding was a winter wonderland – cold and blue with lots of sparkle”, explained Briar. I loved that we were able to have an outdoor wedding despite the temperature. It couldn’t have worked out better. We actually first started dating when I was playing hockey at a local ice rink where Simon worked so the cold was also kind of appropriate! I also loved doing the photos with just me and Simon outside in the snow.”
“For the reception décor we had face boards for pictures, hand made polar bears, snowmobiles, a sleigh, Christmas trees, light up bears and over a two hundred snowflakes. I handmade the centrepieces with suckers and trees. Our candle holders were igloos and frozen stars. We even had fake snow!”
So what do you think? Would you ever be tempted to go all-out winter wonderland – or are you already!? I’d love to hear your plans. Thank you Briar & Simon for sharing your wedding with us today.

Both air traffic controllers, and with a mutual attention to detail and love for planes, Robyn & Tom were thrilled when they were allowed to get married on a Pacific Western plane at Edmonton Aviation Museum. "It took a lot of convincing but the museum were gracious to allow the bride and groom to use the airplane", explained their Canadian wedding photographer Elizabeth of ENV Photography. "Guests were assigned seats on a seating chart that mimicked the chart that you pick your seat from when booking your plane ticket! Prior to the groom walking down, his sons and daughter walked down the aisle and handed out cookies to all the guests - just like a real airline!"

A Broadway Musical Wedding: Carin & Pouya
September 28, 2012
When Carin & Pouya got engaged, the bride instantly knew what their wedding theme would be - Broadway musical! "I have always loved Broadway musicals and three years ago Pouya took me to my first live production - The Wizard of Oz", Carin writes. "I was instantly hooked! Since then I've got season tickets to Broadway performances across Canada including our hometown of Edmonton. I never thought of incorporating that into the wedding, but after a while the Broadway musical theme came to me while I was bored one day in a class in University. I was looking around on the internet when I saw a wedding program that looked like a playbill and the ideas spiraled from there!"

A 1940s & Vegan Wedding in Canada: Sarah & Carol
November 22, 2012
Sarah & Carol had a destination wedding in Canada. With Sarah originally from Canada the pair, who now live in Brighton, wanted to fly back for the wedding. "We decided to be married in Sarnia because Carol is incredibly attached to her hometown and the beaches and water of Lake Huron (can you blame her?)", wrote newlywed Carol. "At the time we booked the venue we thought we would both be living in Canada, so it seemed a natural choice. We chose Sarnia Riding Club as our venue so we could be right next to the water. We knew that whatever continent we decided to do the wedding on, a lot of people who wouldn't be able to attend, we're so pleased that so many people made it – and we've promised to dance with those who didn't make it very soon."
Geeky & Movie Themed Ironworks Wedding: Ellery & Arlyn
October 24, 2012
Back to the future, Indiana Jones, zombies... If you were to ask me to list my all time favourite things they would all be way up there. So when Ellery & Arlyn's geeky gorgeous wedding landed on my lap I was more than a little bit excited to blog it... but also rather gutted that we didn't do our wedding this way!
The Canadian couple were married at The Ironworks Studios in Vancouver. "The Ironworks used to be an old iron factory near the train tracks just outside of Gastown," began the bride. "It's now an eclectic venue used mainly for concerts and TV or movie shoots. We went to our friend’s book signing event there a few years ago and when we started talking about venues, the Ironworks was the place we both thought of first."

August 20, 2012
"Teresa & Russell’s wedding was like an elopement which included family and close friends", wrote wedding photographer Melina of Lucinda Photography. "They left their East Vancouver home with suitcases packed for their Montreal honeymoon for which they were leaving only a couple of hours after the ceremony! We did some whirlwind portraits in their neighbourhood before heading to Vanier Park to help friends set up some chairs and refreshments. Guests arrived, they were married, the mingled and they left. It was great."
