Music and family were a big part of Danielle and Evan Digby’s entire wedding day, which the two had planned together. After all, the bride hails from a musical theatre background, the groom is a software engineer/ballroom dance teacher — and their bridal party consisted of professional musical theatre actors. The couple was thrilled to hold the first Kirkland House wedding since Harris Barn had been newly restored. The ceremony was decorated simply and elegantly, using hanging chiffon, white hydrangeas and pretty globe lights to complement the barn’s rustic look. Danielle’s mother was the matron of honour and a piece of her own wedding gown was wrapped around Danielle’s bouquet, while Evan wore a pocket watch that had been his great-grandfather’s. Danielle’s brother, a judge, performed the ceremony. And what a ceremony it was! The bridal party sang their way down the aisle, then after the ceremony, the entire wedding party lined up to perform “You and I” a cappella as they tossed rose petals at the bride and groom. At the reception, guests were treated to even more performances by family members and the wedding party, as well as a mini ballroom dance lesson before dancing the night away. “One of the first things Evan said to me when I reached the barn doors for the ceremony was, ‘I’m so happy right now’,” recalls Danielle. “This was the overwhelming feeling for both of us the entire day. It was perfect in every way.” Photographer: Shari + Mike Photographers | Venue: Harris Barn at Kirkland House | Bride’s Dress: Allure, style 8862 | Bridesmaid Dresses: Da Vinci style 60027,from Anca’s Bridal | Hair & Makeup: Jenn Magajes | Groom’s Outfit: Dandy’s The Gentleman’s Store | Groomsmen Outfits: Black & Lee, style 430 | Flowers: Jade Peony Floral Design | Catering: Smoke and Bones | Officiant: David St. Pierre
