Guests were invited to the family estate for a casual get together to share family traditions and honor Maxine and Noah. The event began with cocktails and dinner inside a clear tent and outside in the apple orchard. M & N combined food, drink and music to note each other's history. The culmination of the night was the lantern walk around the pond followed by the bonfire in a circle stone-hedge.
Following a Sikh wedding ceremony in the late morning, M & N hosted a laid-back picnic for all guests.
At their leisure, families and friends boarded shuttles to join in the festivities.
Food trucks serving farm-to-table bites, lawn games, and a maple creemee truck were the highlight of the afternoon.
With a twilight ceremony as a goal, we broke a few traditions. A large perk of hosting a wedding at your home is in part, the rules are your own. Maxine's one and only large request, other than all the food being gluten free, was to get married under the trees with strings of lights and surrounded by candles. There are so many note worthy details to this wedding and reception, we will just let the photos speak for themselves.
