A Rustic Wedding in Gilford, Ontario



The Belcroft Estates, with its old-fashioned wooden interior, was the ideal reception venue for Andrea and Jamie’s rustic wedding. The couple embraced the spirit of the barn venue with homespun country touches like chair ribbons and table runners made of burlap. With their picture-perfect decor details set, it was the weather that had the two in a bit of a panic. “Just as we finished our first-look photos it started to rain. We thought we’d have to cancel our outdoor ceremony,” Andrea explains. “Luckily, minutes before the ceremony the rain stopped and the sun came out.” Following dinner, the two opened the floor with their first dance. “We don’t know if it was the venue or the mood people were in, but the dancing started off strong and never stopped! It was bittersweet when the last song played and brought a close to the day.”
