This is one of my favorite venues and it was the perfect spot for this lovely and effervescent couple. It was romantic, rustic, playful and had so many personal touches. The flowers were all arranged by the Groom’s mother, the table numbers were cow tags (symbolic of their family farms) and each place setting included personalized homemade maple syrup. Best yet, the cake toppers were Han Solo and Princess Leah, representing the couple’s mutual love of Star Wars!

The morning was filled with laughter and the bride and groom dressed and prepared for the day in their respective areas. Then, it was time for the FIRST LOOK! Both me and my amazing and talented second shooter for the day, Lucas DeSouza, were out with Camera’s poised and ready for Emily and Jamesen to see each other for the first time in their wedding clothes.

 Wowza! They were both so happy! The love was flowing….

The ceremony was beautiful, with their good friend officiating and Emily’s cousins serenading them, it just couldn’t have been sweeter. It started with Emily’s dad fist bumping Jamesen after escorting Emily down the aisle…
