Barn Wedding Vancouver // Meg & Adam

October 31, 2011

Couple’s often ask us about general ideas and thoughts for their weddings.

And our answer is pretty much always the same. We’re definitely no experts on weddings per se, but we’ve been to a few by now, and there’s one thing we’ve picked up on: The more real you keep it, the better.

Don’t put in a big effort just to be someone you’re not for a day.

Make your wedding who you are instead. Whoever that is. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to have a rad wedding, as long as the effort is there and you’re being real to yourself.

We’re not sure whether we actually had this discussion with Meg and Adam, but a wedding doesn’t get more real than theirs.

Adam has worked the main part of his life at the farm where the ceremony was held, he proposed to Meg on a berry field nearby, and they basically live inside the reception barn. Well, they don’t, but very close.

Meg and Adam knew exactly what kind of wedding they wanted. They made it their own and it’s pretty safe to say that every single person in that barn had one helluva good night. Mason jars and all.

    you guys are ridiculous. in a good way.

  2. Jenny

    Really freakin' awesome!

  3. Casey

    I like what you wrote about "being real." I say that to others too. Sometimes I wonder what a wedding would be like if there was no wedding dress, no tuxedo, and no fancy venue. Just family, friends, and the couple. I'd imagine people would be their most genuine selves.

  4. Elissa

    Oh my goodness, your work is always always amazing.

  5. Emily Porter

    this whole post = win. amazing set, as always!

  6. Zosia
