A Rustic Vintage Wedding at a Private Residence in Kincardine, Ontario

Karen Karelsen (25, a Recreation Therapist) and Chris Griffin (25, a Millwright) decided to hold their wedding at their old barn at their property in Kincardine, Ontario. "I just couldn't resist! The valley is beautiful and overlooks the big willow trees at the back," Karen describes. Inspired by their location, the couple went with a rustic, vintage theme with a color palette of creams, golds, pale blue, pale green, yellow and a rust/orange. Elements like wheat centerpieces, vintage birdcage decor and succulents in teacups gave the wedding a backyard garden feel, which exactly what the couple was shooting for. After a barbeque dinner, everyone enjoyed donuts and a slice from the couple's simple single layer cake with a unique cake topper--a bride and groom riding a four-wheeler!
