Aimee and Christopher are our kind of people – easy, breezy, grateful for their loved ones and smiling ear to ear on their day. Their Stonefield’s Heritage Farm Wedding in Carleton Place was a little slice of bohemian heaven. It was a day full of live music, home-made pies, florals and a serenade from the bride! The morning started with a bit of a drizzle, but smiles still beamed from ear to ear!
A little rain didn’t dampen any spirits. Their lovely handmade wedding was truly about the important things in life: family and loved ones. Their flowers were grown by friends in their garden, desserts were brought by family and friends, potluck style, Aimee opened the reception with a beautiful song she sang for Christopher. And despite the massive downpour, the sun came out just in time for their ceremony. It was like a movie – their recessional song was “Here comes the Sun” and just like that – the skies opened up and the sun shone right down.
We love photographing weddings that are truly about the two people exchanging their vows. There’s no need for excess of “perfect” details, days that are about the enjoyment of guests – good food and music – and a sentimental, meaningful ceremony. The day ended with a massive downpour but the crowd was rewarded with one of the most epic sunsets we’d ever seen. The sky opened up to shades of hot pink, yellow, orange, fuchsia, and lilac. We’ve never seen anything as beautiful as that in this little neck of the Ontario woods.
We wish these two adventurous souls the most lovely life together, and are so happy our paths crossed to document this very special day.
