Bride & Groom: Kaitlin Shaw & Scott MacLean

Wedding Date: June 9, 2018

Ceremony & Reception Location: Brantview Apples & Cider (brantviewapples.com)

“We wanted a venue that had an outdoor space for the ceremony and reception. When we visited Brantview Apples & Cider we knew it was the perfect place to get married. The ceremony site was a beautiful open space that featured a wooden arbour. We loved that the pavilion was an open concept so we could see the orchard while we were eating dinner.” – K&S

Colour Palette:
Dusty Blue

Flowers:The Girl Floral (thegirlfloral.ca) designed the piece for the arbour which included greenery and a few flowers to add some colour. The bouquets, boutonnieres, and greenery on the tables were created with help of friends and family. The flowers included some of my favourites peonies, white anemone (for a pop of blue), pink ranunculus and roses.” – K

Décor: “I did all the décor myself to help with the cost. We kept everything minimal since the scenery itself was so beautiful.” – K

Fav décor element: “My favourite element was the greenery and candles on the table, which went perfect with the harvest tables.” – K

DIY: “I am a calligrapher, so I did all my stationary myself including the invitations, place cards, table chart, and signage.” -K

“I decided to go with the traditional something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. For my something old I wore my mom’s dress. My parents have been married for 35 years! Jennie Ross did a beautiful job modernizing the dress while keeping the classic look.” – K

“I met Brianna when I collaborated on a photo shoot a couple years ago. She was lots of fun to work with. We’ve kept in touch over the years and when I got engaged I thought she would be the perfect person to capture our day. Brianna’s bubbly personality makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Throughout the wedding day Brianna was super helpful going above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly.” – K

Biggest challenge: “The biggest challenge was the day of. Being a DIY bride the morning was super hectic because I was not only trying to get ready for the day but I was also decorating the space. I also realized the morning of that I did not have enough greenery for the tables. I was lucky enough that one of my close friends was able to cut some from her garden and fill in the spaces. My bridal party was also super helpful in making sure everything looked perfect.” – K

Fav wedding memory: “My favourite memory was dancing with all our family and friends. Everyone was up dancing all night which was lots of fun. It was the perfect way to end the evening!” – K

Advice from one couple to another: “My advice would be to take time and enjoy every moment of it. The wedding day goes so fast!” -K
