Siobhan and Ian
The poet and the actor/drama teacher. Just sounds so romantic doesn’t it? And they are. Our first meeting with this great couple was a full on creative brainstorming session. The elements that the couple wanted for their wedding day were full of meaning and symbolism for them. The blackberry that was part of Ian’s boutonniere was to remind them of their first kiss beside a blackberry bush. Again Helene Cyr, captured this whole event beautifully check out her blog post about here.
The ceremony and reception took place at the beautifully relaxed and scenic Starling Lane Winery. The ceremony spot was marked with an antique table and some fabulous white orchid plants we stuffed into rustic looking galvanized metal buckets set on top of wine barrels.
Siobhan and Ian wanted a very relaxed atmosphere for their day, a fun celebration for close friends and family to recognize the love and joy they have brought to each others lives. Because words are a very important part of their lives, a special part of the day was to be a couple of old typewriters set up in the old greenhouse for guests to write their thoughts and wishes for the newlyweds.
We have heard that the party was fabulous with dancing to the wee hours and kids who didn’t want to go home. Starling Lane has so much to look at; gardens, chickens and old buildings, that it is just a perfect venue for anyone looking for a laid back, country vibe.
We are so happy to have been a part of the day and to help bring to fruition the vision for this couple.
