Dyment’s Glen Drummond Farm
I’ve been to Dyment’s Glen Drummond Farm before visiting their lovely pumpkin patch, but didn’t know that within their grounds they also have a beautiful space for weddings. That’s another reason why I was super excited to hear that Melissa and Aaron wanted to book me for their country wedding. It was going to be great to see what their venue was going to offer and how it was going to look when a summer wedding was taking place there.
Country themed weddings are a rare thing for me. Probably because I work out of the city. Though I do get the appeal for sure. It’s the shoes. When given a choice between cowgirl boots and 4-inch stilettos, the decision on comfort during a long stressful day seems obvious. Finding boots and comfy sneakers under a wedding dress are showing up more and more. But having your wedding ceremony on a working farm, reception in a barn, and line dancing from your reception is what I classify as a country wedding.
They had the most gorgeous civil ceremony set upon the edge of a cliff overlooking the Dundas Valley. They also had the most charming tractors that shuttled people to and from the ceremony site. This gave them that farm-feel and vibe you would expect from a venue like this. They decorated the Dyment’s Glen Drummond Farm ceremony site with haystacks and mason jar flowers. Right when you entered, there was a slab of wood welcoming you with hand burned lettering.
Melissa wore a traditional lace wedding dress with a terrain she could bustle for later in the evening when dancing. The dress also had an open back that revealed a tattoo which happened to be her something blue. Both of them wore cowboy hats, except the bride had her veil attached. Everything about this wedding just screamed country wedding. They even had lawn games arranged to entertain their guests during cocktail hour.
I absolutely loved this wedding at Dyment’s Glen Drummond Farm. Country weddings really need to become a thing in the GTA. I don’t know how. I just need it to happen.
