A DIY Apple Orchard Wedding In York, Prince Edward Island

real weddings

Greg may not have had Ashley on his arm for their high-school prom, but it was that event that planted a seed for future romance. “Greg asked me to prom, but I already had a date,” Ashley shares. “We were friends and in 2008 and we were both moving west, so he helped my friend and I move our things to Ontario. It was quite a road trip and we’ve been together ever since.” The pair married at a DIY apple orchard wedding in Prince Edward Island. Ashley notes the weather was less than ideal for her ourdoor DIY apple orchard wedding, but it was actually what made the day extra-memorable. “It was pouring rain as I came down the aisle and all our guests were soaked under umbrellas—it was the most amazing moment.” Keeping with the natural theme of their wedding of this DIY apple orchard wedding, the pair sent guests home with tiny tree favours, which also served as centrepieces. “We loved that everyone would go home after our party and plant a tree!” Ashley smiles.

An Ethereal Winter Wedding in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

real weddings

A dreamy white winter wedding was what Megan and Brent wanted for their day, and they got exactly that when they chose to wed on a cool, crisp day in February. The two were engaged a year prior at the beautiful Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, a surprise stay that Brent had arranged for Megan as it had always been her “dream hotel.” When Brent popped the question in their private cabin, they looked out over mountains and snowy landscapes—the picturesque scene was very similar on their winter wedding day. Both Brent and Megan cite the same moment as their favourite: when they first saw each other before their “I dos.” “I hadn’t seen or spoken to Brent since the night before our wedding, and I was so nervous and anxious waiting for one o’clock, the time of our ceremony, to hit,” Megan smiles. “The moment I saw him standing at the end of the aisle I immediately calmed down, and I felt so happy.”
