Lauren & Dan: Field Of Dreams

Lauren and Dan’s wedding celebrated community, simplicity and natural beauty. Here, Lauren describes their intimate farm wedding and these photos by Mango Studios capture it all beautifully.

From the bride: When we started planning our wedding, we wanted it to be not just a celebration of a new bond being formed, but of our relationship over the last eight years. We wanted every detail of our wedding to reflect what we value: our love for each other, our families, and our friends who have helped us grow together. Most importantly we wanted to celebrate the good times past, present, and yet to come. Our farm is a very special place to us and we knew from the start that we always wanted to get married there. The idea of inviting our guests into our home, using food from local vendors, and building a vintage country theme all spoke to the value we give to togetherness, community, and simplicity. We kept our decor minimal in order to let the setting speak for itself. We tried to incorporate the natural beauty of the property as much as possible, with our ceremony overlooking the valley in our west-facing field, and restoring the old barn ruin to host the cocktails. Dinner was served family style on long, wooden harvest tables, lined with vintage mason jars and bud vases filled with succulents and flowers. The best pies anyone will ever eat are made at the local country market around the corner, which we served buffet style, along with other family desserts made by our mothers. As a token of our appreciation, we made jelly as our favours using the crab apples and grapes we grow on our property. The weather and day could not have been more perfect. It was everything we had hoped for and so much more.
