A perfect fall wedding!

Love came as a bit of a surprise for this couple.... and as soon as they realized their love was really happening, Paul popped the question to Kathinka early in July. And once they knew...there was no time to waste! After conferring with special family & guests who would come from overseas, the date was set for an Oct 15th wedding - and the plans went into full action!

A special wedding ceremony - including a worship time and message from their pastor - started off the ceremony, which was a very important element to both Paul & Kathinka.
150 guests enjoyed the ceremony held at Crossroads Chapel in Burlington.

Following the ceremony - photos were taken with the couple and various groups of friends and then guests were immediately invited to enjoy the HIGH TEA reception that was set out in the Towne Square of Crossroads. High top tables featured china teacups with flowers in them.
Long guest tables were covered in white linen, and dressed up with home-made crocheted runners and doilies, stacked antique books and teapots filled with flowers.
Guests enjoyed finger sandwiches, veggies and cheese, a sweets table featuring British and Dutch favourites of the bride and groom.... scones with clotted cream and jam ... and a stunning cupcake table display. After a few family speeches - and a speech from the groom (which included a surprise SOLO that he sang to his bride!!!) - the couple were cheered off as they left for photos and to continue their day with further celebrations.

Greystone Golf Club in Milton provided the setting for amazing fall-coloured background for photos - especially as the weather was an unseasonably warm 20C temperature! A perfect fall day for photos outside! The couple has quite the fun driving a golf cart with a sign that declared "JUST MARRIED"!

About 60 family & friends - including quite a few from overseas - attended a sit-down dinner at Greystone
and were then treated to an evening of "English Country Line dancing" (also known as Contra Dancing). It was a fun evening of laughter and great music and dancing.

Congratulations to this very special couple!
