Our Grand Opera Member, Natalie Conte of Wedding Bliss shares this beautiful wedding which she describes as a fairy tale wedding come true for her bride. Ever since bride Trista was a little girl, she grew up knowing she wanted her wedding held on the property of her Great Aunt’s private estate. We can see why, this enchanting backyard ceremony is charming and lovely! The ceremony and reception at the Stone Mill Inn in St. Catharine’s was expertly captured by Captivate Photo + Cinema with a mix of romantic and fun shots to document the day.
The ceremony space was surrounded by the beauty of nature and a perfect beginning to couple Adrian and Trista’s happily ever after. Simplicity is key when you already have an amazing natural backdrop. DIY elements of floral topped tree stumps and wine barrels were beautiful and rustic. Lanterns full of baby breaths and hydrangeas added a touch of romance to the event.
Gala Decor provided the reception decor that included burlap and lace accents and satin chair covers. The outdoor was brought inside the popular St. Catharine’s venue with tree moss, branches and unique guest book idea of signing on rocks!
To complete this fairy tale wedding, the bride wore an elegant ball gown with a sweetheart bodice that shimmered as she moved. The lilac bridesmaid dresses were as romantic as they were flattering and the bride’s and groom’s daughter was the most adorable flower girl as she made her way down the aisle in a ribbon and tulle wrapped wagon in her flower crown! The groom and his groomsmen looked polished for the affair, we love the patterned socks and their mix style of shoes!
We love the playful photos, how often do you see bridal parties on tractors? A great unique memory that we sure will inspire those couples who love barn and farm weddings!
Congratulations Trista & Adrian!
