An Ethereal Garden Wedding at Northbrook Farm in Orillia, Ontario

Kelly-Ann Singer (25) and Michael Mageean (25 and a general contractor) celebrated their nuptials with a dreamy wedding at Northbrook Farm in Orillia, Ontario. The farm’s beautiful property provided a picturesque backdrop for Kelly-Ann and Michael to exchange vows. “The venue itself was beautiful, with lovely perennial gardens, tall trees and lush greenery,” Kelly-Ann says. “Not to mention the 1800s home on the property, which my girls and I got ready in.” The couple said “I do” in a short and sweet ceremony on the farmhouse’s lawn. “Michael fell in love with the house instantly,” Kelly-Ann says. “He is extremely handy, so he hollowed out the large birch stumps for the foxglove flowers and ferns that went inside each one. He also made the gorgeous arbor that we got married under.” Other DIY touches included jars of honey, which were given as favors, and a rustic backdrop behind the king’s table, which Michael and his dad made by disassembling old pallets and sanding and standing the wood. “I felt it was necessary to have beautiful greenery and flowers for my decor to really bring the outside in for the tented reception,” Kelly-Ann says. Florals included white lisianthus, garden roses, foxgloves, eucalyptus and other lush greens. “I chose to have a very organic look to my flowers,” Kelly-Ann says. “It was my vision to have flowers that had an earthy appeal, as if they had just been picked and gathered.” After Kelly-Ann and Michael said “I do,” guests sipped sangria on the lawn during cocktail hour, then enjoyed a pig roast and dancing in the tent. —Marissa Hermanson
