After meeting in a church confirmation class, Nicole Kaiser and Jonathan Hammel began a long-distance relationship which eventually led to their engagement. They celebrated with a charming rustic wedding in Pembroke, Ontario, filled with down home details like antique lanterns, wooden crates, window pane seating charts and twinkle lights. Nicole was resplendent in an ethereal ballgown by Allure Bridal as she walked down the aisle at St. John’s Lutheran Church clutching a lace wrapped bouquet. Following the ceremony, Nicole and Jonathan joined their 120 guests at the Rankin Culture and Recreation Centre, where whimsical centrepieces towered above the banquet tables adorned with tea lights in mason jars. The charming rustic wedding also featured table numbers displayed in weathered wooden frames, dangling floral pomanders and miniature notebook favours. As a final touch to this charming rustic wedding, assorted sweets and treats were displayed in mismatched jars which guests were encouraged to take home in paper bags stamped with a silhouette of the bride and groom.
