A hunting lodge vegan wedding with singing vows

November 16 2011 | bijouxandbits

Julie and Josh planned a New Brunswick, Canada ceremony in the forest, but some unplanned rain moved the fun indoors. Thankfully, it didn't matter where they held the ceremony since they SANG their vows and it would have been amazing anywhere.

Add in a hunting lodge setting for their vegan and eco-conscious reception with tons of DIY, edible flowers, and homemade granola, and we're in for a treat. Kandise from Hibou Photo let us in on their day and all of its charms.


The lodge that saved the day when the rain came down.


Some nostalgia in clothespins makes everyone you love feel included.


Homemade granola favors! Favors also included a small tree to plant.


Lovely large flower bouquets make me smile. Sometimes it's just nice to have some luscious greenery (especially in a forest setting!).


Lots of singing and performance happened. Check out the groom going all singer-songwriter on us.


The famed singing vows! They sang "Good to You" by Marianas Trench. Kandise said there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

The wedding party looking fly.


These flowers were edible and topped each of the vegan meals. Everything they used for DIY and the food was locally-sourced.

    The flowers were uhmayzing.

    • I second that yay! There is hope for New Brunswick yet. I'm getting tired of the weird looks I've been getting over my "strange" ideas.
