About the Wedding

From the Bride

I wanted the wedding to be a mix between a backyard cozy garden party and a barn dance. We chose Saskatoon Farm to be the setting for our ceremony in the greenhouse, and had our friends play 'a thousand years by Christina Perri on cello and violin as I walked down the aisle. We served Saskatoon Berry pie and ice cream afterwards to encourage everyone to mingle and visit, and then headed off to Crystal Ridge Golf Course in Okotoks. We gathered under a big white tent with garden lights, barn wood accents, and gorgeous florals sitting in the wooden boxes my dad made from scratch. For food, we had our friends from the 'Farm Girls food truck' serve us decadent chocolate mousse and vanilla bean cheesecake jam jars, with a midnight buffet of bacon and berry jam grilled cheese and mushroom misto gravy poutine. We closed the night off under the twinkly lights with a live slow acoustic version of 'Home' by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and took our wedding party out to the green space and lit sparklers under the stars.
