It’s no secret that Fields on West Lake is one my favourite wedding venues in Prince Edward County, so when Sara & Alex reached out all the way from Calgary and asked me to photograph their wedding day, I was pretty excited!
While the weather on that September day would be risky at best, it didn’t matter to this couple and we rocked their first look before the ceremony and some epic portraits against the windy corn fields. We also manged to get their family photos done before the ceremony too! However, because the skies were threatening rain (see photos), it did mean their plans for an outdoor ceremony would be changed to the Sheep Shed. While the name: “Sheep Shed” sounds more than a little…. rustic, it’s actually quite cozy and serves as a great alternative if it rains at Fields on West Lake. This time, it actually ended with me capturing one of my favourite aisle exits of all time and the smiles on Sara & Alex’s face says it all.
Another fun and tasty highlight of the day was working with Jack the Happy Chef. The food is always delicious (hello shredded chicken taco bar!), the service is speedy (food stations set up around the room is a brilliant option for this venue) and Jack is always present to make sure things are running smoothly.
As the day started to wind down and sun was setting, we took a quick moment to sneak away for some photos in the field – something I recommend all couples do, if time allows for it. You’ll thank me later….
P.S. I promise to blog more frequently…
