A DIY Country Barn Wedding in Vineland, Ontario

Amy and David were teenagers when they first met in 2006. Having worked at a camp together in Muskoka, the pair immediately hit it off, but parted ways once camp ended in the fall. They weren’t in contact again until the following March, when they decided to check in with each other. They went on their first date at the end of April, and officially began dating in July.

David’s proposal came on June 17, 2011 after asking Amy to join him for a boat ride. “As we got into the boat, it began to thunder and rain lightly,” recalls Amy. She says that even as they stopped in the middle of the lake, she didn’t suspect a thing! “He got down on one knee at the back of his boat, and as he asked me to marry him, the sun shone through the clouds and there was the most beautiful sunset!”

The couple set the date of October 13th for their autumn nuptials. They planned a DIY, country barn themed wedding with Ball’s Falls in Vineland, Ontario as their breathtaking backdrop. Amy and her mom enjoyed planning the celebration, and handmade many of the decor and favours. Some of Amy and David’s favourite details were the handmade signs, burlap cutlery pouches, the hand drawn wedding logo hanging behind the head table, and the Mason jar chandeliers crafted by the bride’s father.
