Rustic Wedding on Kildara Farms

Today, we are so excited to share with you this intimate and rustic wedding on Kildara Farms in Victoria B.C. It was the perfect setting for Sarah and Kevin’s unplugged I DOs.

How They Met…

Sarah and Kevin met 10 years ago while Sarah was giving out free hugs downtown. The two became instant friends, and several years later, they decided to take their friendship to the next level. After living together,  they had two amazing little boys named Jack and Finn.

Wedding Details…

Sarah and Kevin both have a love for all things geeky. They decided on having R2D2 bride and groom figurines as their cake toppers! This reflects their personality perfectly. Sarah’s vision for the wedding was to feel like home. She spent a lot of time with her grandparents in Armstrong and Vernon B.C. exploring orchard fields, farms, and barns; so when they found Kildara Farm in Victoria B.C. it was the perfect place to have their intimate unplugged wedding.

The bride got ready with her two adorable sons. Her hair and makeup was done by Make Up by Alexa Rae. She wore a custom dress which featured a sweetheart front, and scalloped lace bottom. Sarah added a custom jacket and adorable lace-up shoes with a floral print to her outfit. Her boys wore blue vests and matching pants which matched the groom’s attire.

Tucked behind an apple orchard, the couple got married in a grassy clearing with family and sunshine surrounding them. Shortly after vows were exchanged, the couple retreated with their guests to the barn for cocktails as dinner was being prepared. Guests were presented with mason jar glasses with personalized name tags. Tables were set indoors and outdoors; they were decorated with white linens, long burlap runners, and wooden slabs creating a perfect base for vintage tea cups to sit filled with gorgeous flower arrangements made by Poppies the Florist. Chalkboard table numbers, Macaroons displayed beautifully in tiny cake stands, and vintage romance novels stacked beside them added to this rustic and romantic setting.

A lot of the decor the couple incorporated, were items from around their home to ensure that extra homey feel. The couple had a traditional two-tier cake to represent the groom, and an additional pie table which included all kinds of pies (lots of pies) picked by the bride. Sarah ordered and ate pies from every bakery in Victoria over the year leading up to the date. When she found Cascadia Whole Foods Bakery, she knew she found a winner. They make delicious pies that are fresh, and use local fruit! They are affiliated with Rebar, the vegan restaurant, one of the better eateries in downtown Victoria. Guests were presented with sweet mason jars filled with cotton candy provided by Petite Puf in Vancouver as a thank you. Guests were able to choose from 3 custom flavors which included Peach, Blueberry, and Vanilla.

This wedding was small, intimate, and gorgeous and photographing it was a dream!

Fall Wedding with a Little Red Barn

Today, we are elated to be sharing this real wedding of Clarissa and Sean. They tied the knot at the Mountain Springs Lake, a stunning Pocono resort located in the mountains of Pennsylvania. We love the pops of purple, navy, and white throughout their wedding decorations.

Their classic, soft colors work for any season. But we really love how their wedding venue speaks to the fullness and unique beauty that autumn always brings. Could anything be more adorable than this little red barn? This rustic, lakeside wedding nestled within the mountains is wonderfully romantic!

Real Wedding: Anna & Alex

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Anna and Alex. Anna and Alex both fled from the former Soviet Union and came to America as young refugees. In this land of opportunity, both became successful entrepreneurs. Anna is the CFO in her family’s export business and Alex runs his own law practice. Busy as they were, finding love proved to be elusive. As fate would have it, Anna was looking to hire a lawyer for her business and Alex showed up at her door. It was a trip to Burning Man where Anna let all her fears go and started getting butterflies at the thought of being with Alex for the rest of her life. Several months later, in classic Russian style, Alex proposed to Anna in front of her whole family on a crowded night at Central Kitchen in San Francisco.

The wedding took place on a private estate named Relais Du Soleilin in Glen Ellen CA, where larger than life metal art sculptures from Burning Man adorn a quiet wind-swept meadow. These enormities are lit up at night and along with the private swimming hole and guest cottages on the property make this a great venue for an event that can creep into the morning hours. Anna and Alex wed underneath a chuppah made by their friends and decorated with flowers and green garlands. Guests enjoyed cocktails created by the skilled mixologists at Goose & Gander in St. Helena. The scene at dinner could be best described as French country style tables each with homemade vodka by Anna’s father and overflowing dishes of Russian-meets-Wine Country fare. The romantic dinner tent, dancing under the stars and open air lounge made the night unforgettable.

Featured Wedding Paper Divas Wedding Invitation: Verdant Bouquet

Photo Source: Bridesmaids | Bouquet | Favor Bag | Wedding Signs | Table Details

Verdant Bouquet invitation: This invitation is the perfect combination of rustic and modern. While its white background and ticket trim give your invite a clean and modern foundation, this charming watercolor wreath makes it but soft and rustic. Clean, soft and rustic, this invitation inspired us to create a new take on rustic weddings.

Bridesmaids: These marvelous mint dresses are a perfect addition to our homespun wedding. Charming and light, these lovely knee-length dresses are super figure-flattering with flow-y skirts and beautiful twist bodices.

Bouquet: The invitation come to life, this bouquet does a wonderful job of pairing neutrals with brights. While the cream and copper flowers work together to make a warm base, the sage foliage gives this bouquet a fabulous pop that is echoed with this too cute, shabby-chic chair.

Favor Bag: Aren’t these great? I love their homemade feel. The grey patchwork coupled with twine details tell your guests that they were made with both care and love.

Wedding Signs: This is idea is so simple but is the epitome of a homespun, rustic wedding. With the help of some scrapped two by fours and a nearby tree, you can let your guests know where all your wonderful events are in style.

Table Details: Mixed metallics are so in. With copper mugs, gold cutlery, and rose-gold gilded center pieces, the mix and match aspect of this table setting shows off glam shine in a humble way.
