March 18, 2015Wedding at Fields on West Lake, Prince Edward County | Claire & JonPosted in Weddings

Good morning lovelies,

Weddings in Prince Edward County, what’s not to like? They have great wine, food, community, and the scenery isn’t too bad either.

Claire and Jon, the bride and groom staring in today’s post, currently live in Manhattan. She is an actor, he is an engineer, and they are two of the loveliest people we have had the pleasure of working with to date. The saying goes, if you can’t find it in New York City it doesn’t exist. So what would possess a couple that heralds from the very seat of culture, New York City, to get married in little old Prince Edward County?

A little white chapel, the proximity to home, and a stunning landscape all around. New York City certainly has a plethora of options for a Bride and Groom, but not that little white chapel, the proximity to the people they love most dearly, and unique rural backdrop.

The little white chapel that Claire and Jon tied the knot in was completed in 1811, making it one of the earliest churches built in Upper Canada: 204 years old! “The Old White Chapel,” as it is affectionately known is full of colonial charm: rough hewn beams, rickety floor boards, a crooked stair way.

The building itself sags, as if from years of exhaustion; holding aloft, on its shoulders, a roof under which many generations have brought their celebrations, mournings, concerns, and thanks. The Old White Chapel’s air of history, charm, and humility is what drew the attention of Claire and Jon. This is an authentic place and not easily washed from the minds eye.

We hope you enjoy looking through this beautiful wedding. Wexford House, where Claire and Jon prepared for the day, is simply stunning inside and out. And Fields on West Lake, “the big red barn,” was airy, light, and homey as we have come to expect.

Bon Appétit,

The Violets

A few fun facts about engagement rings: 

Did you know that engagement rings date back as far as ancient Egypt?

The engagement ring is placed on the left hand, and on the finger nearest the pinky, because it was believed in Roman times that that finger contained a vein that led to your heart. That vein was called, “vena amoris,” or vein of love.

During Victorian times, know for it’s sentimentality, it was not uncommon for rings to be fashioned from your beloved’s hair…umm, I think I’ll stick with the gold thank you very much ;)

The most popular cut to date, according to Tiffany’s, is the Brilliant. This cut emphasizes the sparkle, and radiance, of  your diamond. Hence the name: the Brilliant Cut.

Do you know the four “Cs”? Cut,  Carat, Colour, and Clarity.

See you this Saturday, March 21st (between 10am -3pm) at Lovebird Bridal Boutique
