A Whimsical, Cottage Wedding in Perth, Ontario


After getting engaged over breakfast, Adrienne and Sylvain celebrated a whimsical cottage wedding just as sweet as their relationship. Selecting a riverside location for the ceremony, Adrienne and Sylvain exchanged vows in Stewart Park. Afterwards, the pair — who initially met when Sylvain offered to help Adrienne with her bags — joined their 120 guests for a reception at Code’s Mill on the Park. Reflecting its rustic setting, the whimsical cottage wedding incorporated several natural elements in the decor, including leaf place cards and arrangements of moss and wood. “I was thrilled how it all came together,” explains Adrienne, who handmade the whimsical woodland centrepieces. A sweet touch to the whimsical cottage wedding, Adrienne and Sylvain personally distributed homemade truffles to their guests, who also received homemade still and sparkling wine as favours.
