drew and catherine’s wedding


This past weekend I had the great privilege of decorating and helping cater Drew and Catherine’s wedding. They are a lovely couple and it was a fun, beautiful day!
I started the planning, crafting process about 1 month ago and have spent many naptimes and evenings cheerfully working away, preparing for their big day. We decided on an elegant, rustic wedding, as it was being held outside at the family cottage.
Catherine is probably the most easy-going bride I’ve ever met. She was amazing. She let me hound her with texts every day and throw ideas at her constantly haha.
So, this won’t capture everything and the quality of the pics isn’t great, but here’s the end result of my labour of love for this sweet couple.

I might post the Caesar dressing recipe at some point. It’s amazing!

I found this aisle runner on kijiji. What are the odds? Then I just lined the aisle with lanterns.

I picked wildflowers and dried them over a number of weeks. Every time we were driving somewhere my son would ask if I was going to pick flowers haha.
