• Canadian Farm Wedding

    Canadian Cornfield Wedding | Mikaela Ruth Photography

    Today’s wedding is every farm girl’s dream (and many city girls’ dreams too!). The bride grew up on the farm where she got married, she and her fiancé and their families completely renovated the barn to get it wedding-ready, and she even had her photo taken with her favorite cow. If this wedding isn’t totally and completely this couple, I don’t know what is.

    The inspiration for our wedding began long before the engagement. Having grown up on a dairy farm, I knew I wanted to incorporate those roots (hence the photos we had taken with our favourite cow). What better way to honor those roots than to have our ceremony on my parents’ farm, in their 1920’s hip roof barn, where my sisters and I spent so much time playing as we grew up.

    Advice for couples planning now? Follow YOUR dreams and give yourself the time to make them happen! My parents tried to convince us for months there was no way we could clean “that old thing out” (the barn),  repaint the outside, refinish the floor (that had many holes), build a big staircase up to it, etc. I guess having a fiancé in carpentry was handy! But, looking back, it was SO worth every hour we spent because, my dream came true!!

    I knew exactly what I wanted for my special day and in order to do that I did a lot of it myself with the help of friends and family. Everything from the seating chart, the table runners, head table stage, back drop with the old windows which I hunted down myself, and the bar was made by a friend. Chad and I did so much ourselves because we wanted people to see our personalities come through!

    How did you make your wedding YOU?

    From the barn, to the cornfield reception, the cowboy boots, to the hay wagon ride…I think anyone who knows me would say my wedding was the definition of me!

    I love seeing how much this couple was able to accomplish to make their dream wedding come true! And how special to get married on the farm where you grew up? Congrats to Angela & Chad!

    •  It's like the mothership calling him home. #littleboywindowshopping #calvins3rdyear  These three are why I'm now a morning person. Starting each day with smiles and kisses from these boys is what fuels me for the day. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee  #thefredrickboys
       You've had quite a milestone month from 7-8 months. You're scooting (with some speed), crawling, sitting up on your own, and sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4:30-5) pretty consistently. You totally want to mix it up with your brothers -- sometimes I think you are trying to jump out of my lap to get to them. You and Charlie have the sweetest relationship and you and Cal are best bros. They are both so loving towards you and patient when you pull their hair or grab the toy they have. I wish they were that patient with each other  They both watch out for you, retrieve things you drop, laugh when you're doing silly things like shaking your head like crazy, and are always looking for you. You're eating solids three times a day, still love to nurse, still have no teeth, are constantly babbling (dadadada is common), and are amazingly strong. You are 21.5 lbs (75th %) and are 90th % for height. And you still don't like me out of your sight -- all the heart eyes for momma and I love it. You're quite a flirt with everyone though but aren't loving when men get too close or talk to you too much. Except for daddy -- you're a big fan of him. You went from being my hardest baby to my easiest of the three right now. Thanks for the reprieve. Your happiness is infectious and each dimpled smile you give brightens everyone's day. Happy 8 months buddy. Love you times a million. #quincysmonthbymonth  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood
