We invite you to dress in wedding attire (does your dress/suit still fit?) and if you got married at Lang, please bring your wedding photo for a fun photo opportunity today! As a special treat, we will be joined by members of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association, who will show us the surprising way that blacksmiths were connected to weddings of old.
