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.
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!
