owen sound wedding | heather & spencer

As Heather would later recount in her wedding speech, it was all a matter of faith.

When things don't necessarily go as planned, run behind, when the water stops working right before you need to shower for your wedding day, and any manner of unexpected twists and turns that would induce anxiety in even the calmest of people — when things are going awry, it's important to have something to which you can hold on.

Love, hope, love, trust, honour.  Those words were written softly in chalk on a collection of vases decorating the beautiful barn where this young couple would dine and dance the night away. The words were also lived out during the flurry of events on Heather and Spencer's wedding day. They were present in the moments of calm despite the potential for chaos, in the bonds of friendship that encircle them, and in the steadfast love and affection between the bride and groom.

I'm really excited to share this wedding with you all, as I'm sure you, too, will be amazed by the artfulness and charm. This, my friends, is what comes from an artist and a carpenter falling in love. From the lovingly curated antiques (borrowed from family and friends, including my parents!) to the hand-painted cake topper, the entire barn became a piece of art that set the scene for a rollicking good time.

Heather and Spencer, thank you for allowing me to share your day with you, and to document all the beautiful touches you worked so hard to create. You two are amazing together, and I have no doubt that your marriage will be full of love and honour, founded on faith, and full of fun. Congratulations!

Heather got ready in the beautiful home of her employers, Craig and Theresa of Lens Rentals Canada. I had the honour of doing both Heather's makeup and hair, and it was so much fun to help her prepare for the day in such a beautiful home!

I was obsessed with both of Heather's dresses. She found the adorable shorter one at Miss Selfridge, and the Tadashi Shoji wedding dress on the right just stole my heart completely.

 Heather painted this tiny canvas cake topper. Amazing!
