A Country Wedding Story

After a long Labour Day weekend of rain showers, and odd weather, Sunday, September 1, 2013 shone and was mighty fine.

"The Greeter" pointed the way.

The horses were very close and very vigilant. HORSING AROUND encouraged!

The perfect spot for wedding bunting.

The Hay Loft in the barn was COMPLETELY transformed by months and months of the hard family labour of love.

The Mother-of-the-Bride is a wonderful quilter. These mementos were made for the family traveling from Europe

One of the bride's favourite quilts done by her Mum



Our "stations" to await the Dutch tradition of the Parade of the Bride and Groom-to-be and their guests

The Bride and Groom-to-be in their fantastic Samba Parade!

This is where they will marry

Husband and Wife - Ashley Booth and Jason O'Hara

Time for a wonderful family style Indian food wedding feast

Light your way home from a wonderful country wedding gathering.

This wedding featured the Dutch family traditions of the groom's grandmother, the couple's heavy involvement in South America and their world wide travels. It was a dream come true for Ashley to be married on the family farm, and it was totally magical. Best of luck and love to the new couple!


  1. What a beautiful day that looks to have been, everyone looks so happy, especially the bride and groom. I wish that they will have many many happy years together ahead of them!!
    Wonderful photos too by the way!!

  2. I was there but your photos make it so much better!!

    Too bad we couldn't capture the sound of the Samba band.

  3. Now that looks like a wedding to remember! Lovely, lovely, lovely!

  4. Love it! I wish I can convince my daughter that simple weddings can be wonderful and lovely too. In fact, this wedding celebration will certainly leave more of an impression because of its personal touches instead of some fancy, dancy hall. :)

  5. OMG what fabulous pictures!!!! You captured the event perfectly- its touching, poetic, celebratory and eclectic flavor is embodied in every shot!

  6. Leslie, wow, stunning. I wish I could re-live the day, it was so busy for me and I missed so much, these photos are such a delight. Good job O'Hoot team.
