Richard and Jennifer are sweetie pies! Their wedding day was such a reflection of their personalities and relationship. It was intimate, thoughtful, and beautiful. Between Richard and Jennifer, their friends, family, and the stellar design team at Mastronardi, this wedding day was brought together by the ultimate dream team. As you look through this post, you will see so many well thought out details (many done DIY style). Prepare to be inspired!
The couple spent the year prior to their wedding collecting ideas and unique pieces for their decor from antique shops and yard sales. They quickly fell in love with all things burlap and lace, which worked it’s way into much of their design. Lanterns, baby’s breath, mason jars, and pearls were used whenever possible. Some of the smaller mason jars were used to hold the mini peach pie favours – one of Jennifer’s favourite summer treats! They were so cute, and delicious!
One of the details from this wedding that I loved the most, was Jennifer’s veil. In her own words, “…after my husband proposed to me, my mom and I pulled out her wedding dress and veil from 35 years ago. I tried it on, we took pictures, laughed and cried tears of joy thinking ahead to my upcoming wedding day. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with the lace trim along her veil, which was still in perfect condition…a special friend redesigned the veil, giving it a more modern flare….It meant a lot to be able to wear this veil on my wedding day, and share this piece with my mom.”
Jennifer and her bridesmaids got ready at her parent’s beautiful property, surrounded by nature. It was there that she and Richard shared their first look of each other before heading to Mastronardi Estate Winery for their Ceremony and Reception. The day stayed overcast, giving the most amazing lighting, and the incredible pink and orange sunset made the little sprinkles of rain worth it. As Jennifer said it was “absolutely magical!”
