Carolyn & Eric’s Vintage Wedding At South Pond Farms

Carolyn and Eric hosted a vintage inspired wedding at South Pond Farms just outside of Peterborough, Ontario.

We asked the couple a few questions about themselves and their day..here is what they had to say..

Where did you meet? We met while doing a summer internship at Scotiabank. There was a group of interns that started around the same time but Eric and I figured out that we were kind of only interested in spending our lunch and coffee breaks with each other.

What do you both do for a living? Eric is a Marketing Manager at Pepsico and I co-own a small antiques & homewares business called Three Birds Vintage.  

What made you choose South Pond Farms for your wedding? The area is on the way to our family cottage so it felt like a natural choice- it was close enough that we were able to have the rehearsal dinner at our cottage. When we toured the amazing property and restored barn we were head over heels. It was absolutely the perfect spot for us and the team that ran the venue are wonderful. They try to do as much as they can locally and it just had the perfect casual, cozy feel that we were looking for.

What is your most memorable moment? I would have to say walking down the aisle- That moment felt absolutely perfect. We lucked out with wonderful weather and were able to have the ceremony outside by a pretty little pond.

We had the car drive me and parents from the main house down to the ceremony site which was a really nice time to be alone with them and calm myself. And then walking down the little grass aisle with both of my parents and seeing everyone I loved around us as I made my way to Eric was a really nice moment. Seeing him made me feel so happy and peaceful, I couldn’t wait to get to him and become his wife.

What was your most unexpected moment? The kissing game we chose was that each table had to sing a song with the word “love” in it to get us to smooch. One of the tables started singing “O Canada” which erupted into the whole wedding venue standing up, heart on hand, belting out the entire national anthem. It was a very surreal moment.
