Cam & Tara

From the Heart…

Cam and Tara melted our hearts from the first time we spoke with them. 

Their wedding was beautiful, heartfelt and full of personal touches.  Tara is an artist and her talents were visible everywhere at the reception; Tara’s calligraphy was on the placecards, the framed menus, the table settings, and even on the pieces of slate with the names of the popcorns and the punches.

Antique side buffets were brought in and transformed into a punch bar and stationary food table. The fresh garland and lighting inside the barn took your breath away.  Cam wore a kilt and there were many Scottish signs and references throughout the day to honour his family heritage.

We absolutely love being part of weddings that are true reflections of the couple getting married and you couldn’t help but learn more about Cam and Tara and their families by attending this wedding. It not only looked beautiful – it FELT beautiful too.
