It’s no secret that country weddings, especially those on a family farm, hold some of my favourite moments to capture, but today’s post is extra special and I had a really hard time narrowing the photos I wanted to share.
I’ve known Adam and his brothers since high school. We’ve done school projects, walked the streets of Shelburne, gone for joy rides, and watched each other grow up. When Adam found Meghan and asked me to capture their wedding day on their family farm in Grand Valley, I was more than excited to help them out and take a trip down memory lane while capturing new ones.
As you know, I really encourage couples to take a time out during the wedding day. A moment were they can just take it all in together. A wedding day moves so fast, I feel it’s important to step away and just connect during the day, even just for a moment. Adam and Meghan had the best spot to do that! Just down the road from the farm was the spot where Adam proposed, what better way to escape and get some photos than a spot that holds a lot of meaning for them. We ended up making one of my favourite photos there – the first photo in this post.
Their day included so many great ideas: a caterer that grilled everything on site and served salad out of a hollowed out log, hand crafted personalized cutting boards made by Adam for the guests as favours, a bug spray basket (something every county summer wedding needs), and the wonderful Al Harder drove all the way out to marry them (one of my favourite officiants to work with). A special shout out even goes to their German Shepherd who was with us the whole day – I love when dogs can attend their humans’ wedding too!
I hope you enjoy their images as much as I did taking them.
