A DIY Ranch Wedding In Rural Alberta

  |  By Nicole Greenberg
A DIY Ranch Wedding In Rural Alberta - Bride and Groom

Katie and Myron got engaged while snowboarding high up in the mountains, but for their wedding the two opted for a down-home farm celebration. Katie's father's sprawling ranch in rural Alberta, complete with a red barn and matching tractors, was the ideal setting for the couple's country-themed celebration.

Keeping true to their theme, Katie wore ornate cowboy boots with teal detailing underneath her ivory gown, while Myron donned a brown vest and vintage wash jeans instead of a tux. The couple exchanged "I dos" beneath a wooden arch adorned with a burlap ribbon before being whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage.

Their ceremony space was resplendent in DIY decor that Katie and her mother had made together. Vintage-inspired details like lace ribbons, pearl buttons, and ornate votives meshed perfectly with rustic additions like straw bows and a wagon wheel chandelier.

Ending the day on a sweet note, guests dined on cookies, cupcakes, and a tiered cake dotted with burlap flowers and a twine heart-shaped topper.
