Mansfield Family Farm Wedding
From the Bride:
What was your favourite part or memory from your wedding day? Definitely getting married under the Hubrecht family “Turnaround Tree” surrounded by all of our loved ones. Then celebrating with burlap sack races and three-legged races and running over to the horse pasture for an evening photo shoot with our 4-legged family, P.D. and Billie!
Do you have any future advice or suggestions I could share with future brides? (Any ways you saved money, timeline tips, vendors you loved!?) Our uncle made homemade brews and wine, which made the evening even more special (and saved us some money!) We can’t stop beaming about our vendors – Cheri made sure our personalities shone throw our ceremony, the Test Icicles pumped out our favourite music early into the next morning, and Kymberlie Dozois Photography made our day extra special and captured all the moments we didn’t know existed until we got to relive them through our photos!
I’d love if you could tell me about your wedding day from your perspective, or include anything else I could share from your wedding. We are still in awe that our frantic scrambling to hold an outdoor wedding without a back-up plan actually worked out! The day after a downpour we got married on Tom’s Oma and Opa’s farm on a beautiful, blue-bird day in June. Our family and friends walked through the forest to the “turnaround tree” and took seats on some homemade benches that Tom made. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day with all our loved ones before it poured rain early the next morning! Getting married on this peaceful farm made our day perfect! Words of advice to other brides: a friend told me to make sure Tom and I took a moment away from cameras and the hecticness of the day to just spend some time together soaking in the day. The two of us went for a walk before getting married – it helped us relax, take a breath and appreciate the day all the more!
