~ We’ve Come So Far ~

     Michel and I met online almost 4 years ago.  Falling in love with each other was easy and we moved in together 6 months later.  Our love and devotion grew as we rode horses and roller coasters, took care of  rescue dragons, went on a trip together, adjusted to becoming a blended family, and sadly held each other up as we experienced 3 great losses in a very short time together.    Michel surprised me with this gorgeous rock and of course I said yes !  (He gave me a mini flashlight so I could look at my diamond in the middle of the night.  True story.)

    We purchased this 5 acre property after Michel was transferred to CFB Kingston military base.  (He looks so handsome in his uniform).   The property was perfect for us but was in need of a desperate clean up and some serious TLC.  I have been running an animal rescue out of my home for several years...so this house would be perfect for my rescues and for my home business.  I took the largest space and turned it into The Sanctuary Room/Studio. I make Swarovski Crystal jewellery and upcycled clothing to partially support the animals care.  After becoming engaged we looked everywhere to find the perfect wedding venue....and one that was affordable for us. Weddings aren’t cheap you know.  Nope... we couldn't find anything that seemed to be a good fit for us. Hey Baby?...Let’s get married in our back yard !  Really???  Yep...why not ??? And then everyday we can look out and see “our special place”.  Ok...perfect.  (I’ll add some before and after photos). This would take a lot of work and some creativity.  Thankfully I had some really awesome 

 workers to help me move 100,000 big rocks around. Thank you so much to my son and my handsome husband and 2 of our neighbours for all their hard work and patience!!!!  Somewhere early on in the journey of preparing our land for our fabulous weekend wedding, we realized that perhaps other couples would also be looking for the same things we had searched for in a venue and never found .  Why not have other couples say their vows and become husband and wife on our beautiful land ?  How about hosting weekend wedding celebrations here?  Our property would always be filled with love.  There’s a nice big fire pit to toast marshmallows on the massive old barn foundation that we named La Terrace”.  Open green fields and beautiful flower beds.  The Fairy Rock garden that we dedicated the night before our wedding to 3 very special people that watch over us from above.  And those 2 rustic barn doors that we salvaged from the rubble of the old barn ....gorgeous.  Then there’s the coolest antique buggy.  And that HUGE wedding tent...so fun....and the most beautiful 270 foot long flagstone path that led me past the fountain and into the arms of the one I pledged my heart to...❤️  And so, with many hours of crazy hard work and toil, love and frustration and sweat, (and maybe the occasional curse word 😬), The Painted Window grew and evolved into this magical place that we are so proud of and blessed to call home.  So come for a visit.  Enjoy a cocktail with us on La Terrace.  Take some time and wander the property.  Find your “special place”.  Follow your heart.  Fall in LoVe....and say “I Do”
