Jenny & Brian’s country winter wedding in Iroquois, Ontario is a genuinely true reflection of the couple who both grew up on farms. Their wedding is filled with so much character and love, with almost everything designed and handmade by the bride and her family, including all the decoration details and even the dresses! We love the sweetness and joy expressed through each of the gorgeous images captured by talented Canadian photographer, Christine Lim. Join us as we share Jenny & Brian’s beautiful celebration of love.
The love story
Jenny & Brian were both leaders for the Youth Groups of their churches, and there were a number of events where both church groups attended. After some group gatherings at youth events, they started hanging out on their own, and found the other half God has put into their lives. Just over a year later, they were engaged.
Best wedding moment
Their first look was heart melting! We did all of our portraits on Jenny’s parents’ property, so Brian waited patiently at one of the old barns (he had a bit of waiting). Brian was so excited and nervous to see his bride; the good kind of nervous. You could really tell from his expressions that he just couldn’t wait to see her and to marry her. When Jenny finally arrived to the meeting point, it was overwhelming! Tears and lots of laughter made their first look really beautiful, but fun at the same time. It was a wonderful way to start their wedding day together.
Thoughts from the photographer
Christine Lim: This wedding was the sweetest! Both Jenny and Brian grew up in the country, on farms (Jenny’s family are berry farmers while Brian’s family are dairy farmers). Jenny wanted to keep things as personal as possible – so everything you see for her wedding was either made by her, her mom, her dad, sister, grandmother, aunts or friends. Basically, everything! Even down to her dress!
I could go on and on about their wedding and what a great time i had documenting their wedding day, but i’ll stop here. They are great people and were great to celebrate with! Thank you, Jenny + Brian! It was such a pleasure to travel east for your amazing country winter wedding! Wishing you many years of love and happiness to come!
Creative wedding theme and DIY details
Jenny & Brian got married in the country in Iroquois, Ontario. Jenny’s family are berry farmers and run the Dentz Berry Farm while Brian’s family are dairy farmers in the area. Needless to say, the vision for their wedding was to have a real “country wedding”, because it truly is who they are.
Jenny (with the help of family and friends) made almost everything – from the dresses and her shawl to the decorations and the amazing spread of preserves.
