This Fields On West Lake Wedding Was A County Dream

I can’t think of another way to begin this blog post than by saying this was my dream Prince Edward County wedding. Wedding days are not about me, but Carly and AJ were the perfect reminder of why I do what I do. I guess you could call them my perfect fit.

They are both romantic and hilarious. AJ proposed to his highschool sweetheart, Carly, while visiting a wine bar in Galway, Ireland…

What do you see our next five years looking like?” - AJ
“What is this, a job interview?” - Carly

I can’t begin to explain how classic that moment is between them. During their first look, while AJ gathered himself with tears rolling down his cheeks, Carly stood there with her hands on her hips with a big smile. They made their day unforgivably about them, and they wouldn’t change it for the world (it’s actually their best advice for couples planning weddings - make it about you). For their grand entrance they performed a beautiful dance for their guests, and Carly didn’t get off the dance floor until… well, I stayed late and she was still there, so who knows if she ever got off of it. You can never do enough spinning in a dress like that.

Carly and AJ were lucky enough to have two sets of grandparents share their day with them, along with the rest of their family and friends. If you’ve ever looked into planning a County wedding, you’ve looked into Fields On West Lake. This is “thee” spot for a whimsical, rustic barn wedding. The barn was garnished with luscious greenery and the couple fed their guests a family style meal, finished off with the most delicious donuts and desserts from Glazed and Confused.

On that note, you might want to grab a snack because this is probably the most photos I’ll ever share in a blog post. Enjoy!

Carly & AJ,

There’s no way I can thank you enough for making me feel so valued, trusted and loved. You gained a soulmate, I gained forever friends.

Holly xoxo
