A Winter Wedding

Winter…it’s the season we all love to hate.  I have nothing, but admiration for Alix and Anthony and their decision to embrace the season and have their wedding in January.  As it turns out, this was the right decision.  Ontario’s winter beauty was the perfect backdrop for an intimate and handmade wedding celebration.  And instead of being a drawback, the winter temperatures seemed to make everything a little bit cozier, a little bit more special and a whole lot heartfelt.

From getting ready in the Grafton Inn’s beautiful Pumpkin House to cutting the cake, the day was filled with emotion. I have a small tendency to find myself a little choked up at wedding celebrations.  I love to hear the speeches and witness all of the love everyone has for the couple, and this wedding was especially bittersweet.   Alix’s family and friends flew in from a balmy Australia.  They landed on what may have been the coldest, iciest day of the winter.  Some of them had never even seen snow!  Despite all this, the frigid temperatures did nothing to damper the joy of everyone gathered. The day was cozy and intimate.  It was a pleasure for me to witness and document the delight of these two to have found each other.

Amazing Venue is the Grafton Village Inn.

The wedding was impeccably coordinated/planned by Sylvia Coretti of Garden Girl Events in Cobourg.

The cake was beyond delicious and was provided by the bakery at Ste Anne’s Spa.

I cannot rave enough about the catering, Be Catering from Peterborough.
