DIY Rustic September Wedding in a Barn, Complete with BBQ Lunch Buffet

We were so thrilled to be able to work with Robyn and Ben for their early September wedding at the Hampton Barn at Belwood Lake Conservation Area.  Robyn had such a solid vision for her wedding from the very first meeting, and everything looked picture perfect.  The rain held off for the ceremony, and a BBQ lunch was exactly what everyone needed once the rain started and they moved inside.

Robyn planned for every last detail - signage for everything, and her DIY decorations brought the room to life

Pretty white paper lanterns and twinkle lights

Communal tables at their best!  Picnic tables lined up for a rustic BBQ lunch

Guest favours

Tree trunk slices acted as the base for the centrepieces

Sweetheart table, completed with handmade bunting

Ceremony site, we love the sign!

Reception snacks were served outside under the covered deck, and you better believe there was a handmade sign for that too!

The buffet table, ready for the first guests

Juicy striploin, cedar planked salmon with maple ginger glaze, chicken satays, and balsamic marinated vegetable skewers

Choice of salads?  You bet!  We don't scrimp on salad

Beets and oranges with feta and sliced red onion, perfect fall colours

The dessert table is taking shape!
