Bear and Goose married at an intimate couture country wedding at Ancaster Mill that could only be described one other way: custom. The pretty personal touches – from the bridal bouquet of vintage family heirloom broaches, to the couple’s animal pet name emblem emblazoned stationery and favors, to Goose’s added-to lace gown – are dripping with personality. Lucky for us, Tiffany Rebecca Photography shared all of the exclusive gorgeousness with us, and you can see every last made-for-this-day detail in the full gallery.
From Tiffany Rebecca Photography… Nicole and Greg definitely wanted their day to reflect them! Nicole and Greg created their own logo with the help from their brother: Grecole. (You can see this logo on their reception sign-in book.) Their nicknames for each other — “Bear” and “Goose” — were also incorporated into their wedding, as seen on their menu and their favors: “Gooseberries”. Nicole’s dress was originally sleeveless, so she commissioned a seamstress to add the lace sleeves. She also hemmed her bridesmaids dresses, which were originally floor length. Nicole handmade her bouquet from vintage brooches from her mother and grandmothers.
From the Bride… We (well, mostly me) were going for a country vintage feel, which was evident with our handmade crafts, and my vintage brooch bouquet and lace dress. The wedding could not have been more perfect — except, well, if it lasted longer. Greg and I were so lucky to have 55 of our closest friends and family from around North America join us at the Ancaster Mill for our special day. The outdoor ceremony began at 5:00 p.m., and with lush trees and a stream it felt like a fairytale. Upon finishing, the guests headed to the deck for eating hors d’oeuvres and drinking, while we headed to take our pictures with our amazing photographer. The dinner was absolutely delicious and so were the speeches. The night finished off hanging out on the deck sipping beverages overlooking the stream, and dancing the night away to some of our favourite tunes. It could not have been a more magical day!
