Field Of Dreams: This Blush Summer Wedding Took Place At The Bride's Exquisite Family Estate

Copy Link
Vend Ors

Carolyn and Michael first crossed paths over twenty years ago during their freshman year of University. Though they weren’t particularly close at the time, they shared several classes and left lasting impressions on each other. In particular, Michael’s memorable ketchup bottle costume for a frat prank gone awry stuck with Carolyn. The couple’s paths diverged until they reconnected during the Covid pandemic. They quickly realized their shared history and passions, including their mutual love for cottages, travel, fine cuisine, and dogs! Michael’s proposal was a testament to their bond, as he ingeniously incorporated their beloved 16-year-old dog, Bessie, by securing the ring to her collar. With such a heartwarming gesture, Carolyn couldn’t refuse, and the rest, as they say, is history!

The couple drew inspiration for their wedding from Carolyn’s parents’ exquisite estate, affectionately referred to as The Ranch, nestled in Vaughan amidst vast farmers’ fields. Michael whimsically dubbed it their very own ‘Field of Dreams,’ jokingly saying, “If we build it, they will come”! Both the ceremony and reception took place at The Ranch, presenting the couple and their planning team, led by Michelle Cundari of SINCERELY YOURS EVENTS Full-service Event Planning & Design More | Message , with a blank canvas, initially daunting yet ultimately exhilarating. The black-tie wedding boasted four distinct areas: the ceremony beneath the picturesque old oak tree, the cocktail reception by the poolside, the cigar lounge, and the showstopping reception tent.

Our wedding was truly a dream come true. We knew we wanted an outdoor venue but struggled for months to find the perfect location that could accommodate our very long wish list. It turned out that the ideal spot had been right there the whole time: Carolyn's parents’ home. With the help of our amazing wedding team, we were able to turn the majority of our wishes into reality.
