Megan and Phil had a backyard celebration full of vintage details and outdoor beauty. They were married at Phil’s parents’ house, on the beautiful French River, just south-west of Sudbury. This area of Northern Ontario is surrounded by tall pines, picturesque rivers, lakes, and fields of wildflowers – the perfect place for a natural wedding! They took photos in a nearby field aglow with summer light as well as on the rocks by the river. The modern-vintage-DIY theme was carried throughout the day, from the classic mint bridesmaids dresses, to the pink and gold dessert table, antique picture frames and handmade seating chart. Megan’s bouquet, studded with roses, daisies, and peonies was the perfect addition to the whole look. Thank you Caroline Ross Photography for sharing their inspiring day!
From the Bride…
Before the Ring:
Phil and I met through friends at a local bar, went on a date the next weekend and have been together ever since!
He proposed at these beautiful falls on the French River, what I thought was a normal walk with our dog Poe ended with Phil down on one knee with my dream ring. It was simple and sweet – exactly how I imagined it. We actually got married just down the road from where he proposed, at his parents’ house just over a year later!
Details of the Day:
I had a lot of inspiration for the wedding but it all started with me falling in love with a retro pastel color scheme. I also got inspired by vintage thrift store finds, wedding blogs which featured amazing vintage weddings and ideas, and the beautiful French River where both the ceremony and reception was held.
As for the invitations, programs and table numbers, I had a vision of what I wanted and my friend Kaitlyn Morrow did a wonderful job designing them and putting them all together!
