My husband and I were married just this past September, in Lake Charlotte Nova Scotia. Our venue is surely one of the most enchanting places to visit on the eastern shore - if you find yourself driving along highway #7, do yourself a favour and stop into Memory Lane Heritage Village. I promise you won't regret it. There are chickens, sheep and kittens that roam the grounds of an authentic 1940's village, complete with school house, garage, church, and general store. IT'S AMAZING.
We both wanted an intimate, and friendly wedding day without too much fussiness or formality. We also wanted a venue that would accommodate a totally whacko DIY bride...
Early in the planning stages, I decided that I wanted to make all the cakes and favours myself. Knowing that I would be quite busy the day before our wedding with general preparations,
I kept the overall design simple and rustic.
The cakes are in seven single tiers, in varying colours and sizes.
The favours were orange, chocolate caramel truffles, and were prepared in advance.
Now that we're settling into our lives as a married couple, we're still overcome with relief for having found each other. Imagine, the man of my dreams thinks I'm the gal of his dreams - What Luck!!!!
Tomorrow we'll celebrate our first Valentine's day in wedlock, and we'll probably stay in, watch a horrible movie, and eat some cake. PERFECTION.
I hope you all have an equally perfect Valentine's day,
with the chance to celebrate with the people you love!!
