Celebrations now offered at Beavercreek Winery

Les and Paulette Wade turned their hobby into a full-fledged business when they began Beavercreek Winery in 2008, across their 86 acres of land in Lawrencetown, Annapolis Co.

They’ve since moved from a simple winery to a cafe, gift shop and wedding venue as well, which they have made clear is open to couples of all orientations.

Weddings can now be booked at Beavercreek Winery.

“We have this beautiful 4,000 square-foot wedding venue. My wife and I want this to be an open, comfortable place to anyone who wants to get married,” said Les.

While they’ve always been open to all kinds of weddings, they’ve recently been pushing to make sure the public knows it.

“No matter who you are, what you believe or who you love, you’re welcome here. As long as you’re enjoying life and no one’s getting hurt, we don’t care.”

The couple has been doing weddings for a few years now, but their road to keeping things running had a few strange turns.

“We realized in 2010 that to get our full licence, we had to overturn an old 1934 prohibition bylaw stating that Lawrencetown was still a dry area,” said Wade with a laugh.

“We had to canvas the whole town, and we had to hold a vote on whether the village would allow us to have a winery or not. We ended up with a 99 per cent vote in our favour. But we had to jump through all the hoops. It was a different experience.”

Now with the winery in full swing, the two are just starting to get into the wedding business, with the last two years being an ever-changing cycle.

“Things have been crazy since we started. We’ve grown and learned how to deal with the crowds and how to schedule. We want to make it easy for people who come, and for a wedding venue, you rent to space. But we try to cater to the bride as much as possible,” he said.

“You get the space, your table, chairs, linens and everything down to garbage disposal. We take an all-inclusive approach, with rest-rooms, catering prep rooms and more. It’s their day and we try to help them with it as much as possible.”

The winery also has an outdoor cafe, which offers food and drinks to guests — a hit with wedding attendees.

“They have cocktail hours when couples get married. The ceremony and pictures are on the grounds, and our area can be utilized for casual drinks. We think of the guests and want them to enjoy themselves.”

The opening of a wedding venue was important for the Wades.

“There’s nothing in our area that acts as an outdoor and indoor venue, where 200 to 250 people can be accommodated. It’s up-to-date, has full amenities and everything. You could go to any farm and do an outdoor wedding, but you need fire marshal clearance, and for it to be properly engineered with electrical. How many brides want to go to a farm and hike their wedding dresses up in a porta potty? It just isn’t realistic,” he said.

“We have a nice feel, rustic scenery and all amenities and modern conveniences. We have just a really nice place to come.”

They have made clear their stance on gay marriage, recently posting an ad on the Facebook group Gays In Halifax that puts their feelings simply. “Love Is Love,” the ad says.

“Annapolis Valley is still the Baptist bible belt, and there are not many non-traditional places to wed. We like to have the space available for people. They will still get a traditional feel, walk up the aisle and everything,” he said.

“We never gave the idea of backlash any thought. We really aren’t worried about that. The people who would fight against this just aren’t welcome.”

Les said Nova Scotia is a gay-friendly province, but not many businesses put it out there.

“We don’t see other people saying (they) do same-sex weddings or alternative weddings, so we promote this,” he said.

“There’s a wonderful couple looking now. If one is looking, there could be 10 couples on the fence,” he said.

“We’re happy with the response, and doing weddings is so much fun.”

MILEY CYRUS, LIAM HEMSWORTH WEDDING IN 2016?

Will Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth get married in 2016? It's not yet clear how quickly the re-engaged couple will walk down the aisle. But one thing is certain: They're incredibly excited!

Cyrus, 23, and Hemsworth, 26, started getting close after Cyrus split from Patrick Schwarzenegger in April. Then they sparked rumors they were getting back together when Cyrus spent the holidays in Australia with Hemsworth and his family.

And their relationship moved fast. Cyrus started wearing the original engagement ring Hemsworth proposed with. Then she and Hemsworth were seen getting cozy at a pre-Golden Globes party at Soho House. And Cyrus and her dogs moved into Hemsworth’s house.

Of course, engagement rumors started swirling when Cyrus posted a photo on Instagram of the old ring. But insiders say Hemsworth never proposed a second time. Sources told Us that Cyrus simply started wearing the ring again. He noticed and liked it. “They are telling friends they’re engaged,” a source said.

And it sounds like Hemsworth’s family approves! Though he wouldn’t reveal details, Chris Hemsworth did talk about his brother and Cyrus dating again. He told Entertainment Tonight that he was “happy” for his brother. “I can’t confirm any of that. But, you know, he’s smart, he’s happy,” Chris Hemsworth said of the marriage rumors.

Cyrus and Hemsworth first began dating after they met on the set of The Last Vow in 2009. They got engaged in 2012, but ended their engagement in 2013. They both needed time to grow. But they always had feelings for one another.

“They needed time apart to realize how much they love each other and want to be together. It happened slowly over time. One conversation led to another. It wasn’t something that happened overnight. They are both a little bit older and wiser now. They’ve lived a lot in the last few years and think things will be different,” a source told E! News.

The 31 Best Beauty Instagrams of 2015

2015 is coming to a close, leaving a stream of memorable, inspiring, and transformative beauty Instagrams in its wake. Each week on Vogue.com, we share our favorite recent beauty moments as seen on the app, from behind-the-scenes runway snaps to beach-day selfies (or #belfies, as the case may be)—after all, it provides an instant glimpse into the lives of the models, makeup artists, and style influencers who pioneer beauty trends soon to be seen around the globe. And, like a well-edited beauty yearbook, a quick backward glance at our chosen photographs makes identifying the looks that defined the year as easy as a simple scroll.

All things gilded and opulent were in favor these past 12 months, a trend owed in large part to makeup artist Pat McGrath. Hairstylist Luigi Murenu captured one of McGrath’s mothlike mask creations—crafted from an ethereal medley of pearls and lace—backstage at Givenchy’s Spring 2016 show, where Murenu finished off the artfully regal look with a metallic gold headband wreathed around a slicked-back bun. McGrath continued her reign with a takeover in the Tuileries, where she dusted her newly released, high-impact fairy dust—the Pat McGrath Project in Gold 001—on the eyes of Bella Hadid, Imaan Hammam, Lily Donaldson, and more. Offbeat trendsetters like Sky Ferreira and sisters Simi and Haze found streetwise ways to embrace the sparkle on eyes and lips alike.

When it came to hair, romantic plaits and waves were defining factors this year. Brushed-out, Marcel-inspired waves saw a resurgence at Lemaire, a look mirrored in modern fashion by model Frederikke Sofie—who paired her signature peroxide mane with a pair of rounded black spectacles worthy of Woody Allen—andFernanda Ly, whose pastel pink shade recalled a cotton-candy cloud. And braids took on new life: From Mary Charteris’s woven, paisleylike crown to Georgia May Jagger’s mini buns (an homage to Minnie Mouse) to Lisa Bonet’s baby braids, interwoven styles felt fresher than ever. And last but not least, Kendall Jennerarranged her glossy mahogany mane into a halo of hearts, resulting in the most-liked Instagram photo of all time.

From memorable manicures—Caitlyn Jenner’s sky blue thumb against a Starbucks cup was proof that a picture is worth a thousand words—to the return of Derek Zoolander, this year’s best beauty Instagrams reminded us to have fun, smile more, and think outside the box. Here’s to embracing beauty in all forms in 2016.
