{Real Wedding Story} Love on the farm | Adam & Kara

BRIDE & GROOM: Adam & Kara Stanley

WEDDING DATE: September 7th, 2019

LOCATION: “We chose to have our wedding at our family farm because we wanted our day to be an accurate reflection of us. It was very important to us that our day was very personal and included many aspects of our life together, including our dog.” – A&K

PHOTOGRAPHY: A Nash Photograph (♥) (anashphotograph.com) Cambridge, ON “I was given Amy’s contact information by a co-worker when we first got engaged. I fell in love with her photos and after meeting her and Deane, we knew it was the perfect fit. They made everyone feel comfortable and captured every part of our day. Adam is not a photo person, but Amy and Deane made it easy and kept everyone smiling.” – K

GUESTS: 160

BUDGET: $40,000

THEME: “Our colour scheme was gold and burgundy. We chose this in order to incorporate the many farm elements present at our wedding. Farming plays an important role in our lives and we also wanted that to be reflected in our day.” – A&K

FLORALS: Miles Flowers (milesflowers.com) Burford, ON

DIY: “We did a lot of DIY! My favourite décor element by far was the straw bale backdrop with vintage lace curtains made from repurposed linens sewn together by Adam’s aunt and hung from the bales with lights.” – K

ADVICE, ONE COUPLE TO ANOTHER: “If you are considering having a wedding at home, we HIGHLY recommend it! Though it is definitely extra work, for us it was 100% worth it. We will have a lifetime of memories in our own backyard, and it will set our wedding apart from others because it was uniquely our own, at home.” – A&K
