AMY & RYAN’S
We chose a Celtic theme for our wedding as we both have British roots. The bride was born in Birmingham, England, and the groom has both Irish and British background. As neither of us are religious, we felt the deepest meaning for our wedding was to reflect on our heritage, and to pay tribute to our ancestors and culture. We chose a Celtic theme but also did most of the fine details ourselves in a sort of rustic theme.
The groom and groomsmen assembled the centre pieces the morning of the wedding, and the bride made the seating chart, wedding post box, and signing tree of life. The Willistead Manor is one of the oldest buildings in Windsor, linked to all of the alcohol greats of the prohibition era. We requested our photos capture the candid, as we feel that those are the most honest
As we are both vegan, we chose a vegetarian menu for our guests, and the bride made the vegan cheese for cocktail hour. We also made our own wine for dinner, and brought in our local brewery Walkerville Brewery and Sprucewood Winery for the later part of the evening. We love how everything came together, even though some were sceptical of our decisions during our year of planning.
Stay true to your dream friends, it will turn out perfectly in the end, and you’ll be glad you stayed true to yourselves and your love.

TIPS FOR FUTURE BADASS BRIDES: Don’t compromise on your vision. You and your partner know what will work. Also, let your vendors work their art. Be clear on your vision and comment when needed, but also remember artists work best when left to their talent.
