From Spring Engagement Sweethearts to a Summer Wedding Delight!

Canada's sweathearts are back :-) We fell in love with Leah and Darryl's engagement photos back in June but were completely blown away with their August wedding..wow!

When Leah and Darryl booked their summer 2011 wedding at The Big Barn at Ball's Falls Conservation in Jordan, Ontario, they had a blank slate with lots of rustic charm to work with. The end result was a perfect blend of vintage appeal and romantic elegance.

The intricate mehndi designs on the bride's hands and on the hands of the female family members was just one of the time honoured traditions the couple included in their wedding day.
