“If I had to describe our wedding in one word it would be fun,” shares bride Robin of the amazing day she and Nathan shared with 200 of their nearest and dearest. “It was a little bit rainy, but I wore rubber boots, and I actually loved that itwasn’t hot. Also, the cloud cover made for some amazing, dramatic photos.” Besides the rustic decor elements (crafted by Nathan’s mother using wood, lace, burlap and roses), Robin’s favourite elements were her dress and photographer Elizabeth Van Der Bij of ENV Photography—the couple actually chose their wedding date to accommodate Elizabeth’s busy schedule! Other highlights included the couple’s personalized vows, their adorable mini wedding party of eight kids, and the mega dance party that closed the night. “We danced all night,” Elizabeth smiles. “I had the time of my life, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing about our day.”
