Wedding Wednesday – Get Me To The Church On Time

Happy Wednesday everyone!! We’re half way there and only a few days till fall, holy cow!

Today, being Wedding Wednesday, I figured it was a good time to show you where Ryan and I will be married.

When my brother and his wife, Holly got married they had the ceremony and reception right in the field behind their house. It was very beautiful and perfect for them. Me? Not so much.

I love the farm and I love my brother and his wife, Holly. But, I do not want to do the same as they did. Since we will be getting married in May the weather can be so unpredictable. I really didn’t want to have the stress of worrying whether or not it rained.

I never even had to think about where I wanted the ceremony. I wanted it in the church about 1 KM down the road, where I was baptized.

Welsey Church 001

This is Wesley United Church. It is a small, old (but newly renovation), country church. Ryan, myself and my parents are members of the congregation that splits their services between Wesley and another church in town.

Out side of the church is the dirt road to get there, large parking area and a field directly across.

Inside, as I mentioned, is newly renovated. There are hardwood floors leading up to the pulpit, wood wainscoting, and tall ceilings.

The pews line each side of the aisle.  On each side there are three large, bright windows.

Welsey Church 004

Towards the back is one of my favorite features. Two sliding french doors! They are very functional and add in a lot of natural light.

It’s easy to see why I love this church, isn’t it? It’s cozy, warm and so inviting. On nice Sundays, Ryan and I like to walk to and from Wesley Church. It’s that close to the farm. It’s where my family (both blood and church family) gather to worship.

Wesley Church is where I was baptized, had my confirmation and where Ryan and I will become husband and wife in front of our families, friends and God. This little country church holds a lot of present and future memories.



  1. The church is adorable Lindsay, great choice! :)

  2. Oh wow, it looks like a great pick for a church! I love the hardwood floors! And I love that there is only one aisle, I don't like when there are pews, aisle, pews, aisle, pews b/c I always get stuck on the far set of pews and the bride goes down the other aisle :)

  3. haha - I like Nicole's comment - that's how the pews used to be set up at Quyon United, years ago. (I don't remember if they were the same at Wesley too?) I remember when they decided to make the investment to get the new pews, and leave just one aisle down the centre. My mom's main reason at the time was, "I'm just thinking of my kids getting married here someday, and I want them to walk down a centre aisle!"

  4. This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. I love when it is decorated for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The wood and the windows are amazing. Can't wait!

  5. OMG .. for real!! I LOVE IT .. it's always been a dream to photograph a wedding in a small home town church like this one .. I CAN'T WAIT!!!! XOXO
