A Rustic DIY Wedding In Saskatchewan

A Rustic DIY Wedding at Waskesiu Lake, Saskatchewan - Bride and Groom Holding Bunting

Amanda and Dave wanted their relationship history to be reflected in their wedding. “Dave and I have known each other for a long time,” Amanda explains. “We actually grew up living down the road from each other in a small town in Saskatchewan.”

The couple got engaged on Dave’s father’s property. “Dave is a farmer,” Amanda smiles. “We got engaged in a chicken coop! It was very romantic.”

Amanda and Dave chose a vintage country theme for their celebration and incorporated a range of beige, white, coral and mint-hued decor elements. “I loved how bright the flowers looked in contrast with the rustic atmosphere,” Amanda says, referring to one of her favourite details.

At the end of the day the couple said they were thrilled that their wedding went smoothly. “The day was amazing; I don’t think that too many brides can say everything went exactly as planned,” Amanda says. “I really would not have changed a thing or hired anyone different for our wedding day.”
