Rustic Wedding Inspiration

Getting married is something most girls dream about for their entire lives. They imagine the dress, decor, who their maid/matron of honour will be, and most important, who will be waiting for them at the end of the aisle.

My special day came last fall, just before I started here at House & Home, and I wanted to share a few photos of the absolutely gorgeous decorating by my wonderful mother-in-law Kelly Meighen and wedding planner Laurie Goldhar.

We chose Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works for our reception. Check out what the magical evening looked like.

The flowers were simple and beautiful.

The glow shining above from the rustic wood chandeliers combined with the candle light glistening from the tables. The dining space was filled with a soft, warm light. (Lynda Reeves chose similar chandeliers for the 2008 Princess Margaret Hospital showhome.)

They filled the tables down the centre of the room with the most delicious looking cheeses, fruits and desserts.

My side of the wedding party wore pink — they looked absolutely beautiful! And the pink added a contemporary spin to the harvest-like theme.

All in all, Kelly and Laurie did a fabulous job pulling the rustic theme together. I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek inside my big day.
