Mary Pat & Dave: Creative By Nature

Mary Pat and Dave’s summer barn wedding was full of love and laughter. Held at the picturesque Cambium Farms north of Toronto, the couple made the most of the location with an outdoor ceremony beneath the trees, a cocktail party in the gardens and a charming reception in the authentic century-old barn, with exposed beams, posts and rafters, dressed in white and green.

This creative couple (they are both graphic designers) made many of the details themselves including all the paper products, very cool buttons for their guests to wear and even their wedding bands. Mary Pat scoured antique shops collecting green glass jars, bottles and vases for floral arrangements. They celebrated their love for music with a guitar and ukulele on site for strumming and as a playful decor detail for their ceremony signing table and reception photo display.

Wedding planner, Crystal Adair-Benning of Distinct Occasions, helped Mary Pat & Dave realize their vision of a whimsical country celebration and photographer, Jessica Hill of A Brit & A Blonde, captured all the fun and quirky details.
