Emily and Dan’s rustic farm wedding was like serenity. Emily had her heart set on having their wedding on her family farm in Bowmanville, Ontario. The sentimental value of the place she grew up on and still calls home to this day made a lot of sense as the scenic creek, bridge, and ceremony site all came together to celebrate with their closest family and friends.
Emily and Dan’s journey actually began overseas when Emily decided to teach abroad over in the UK. It was there where she met Dan and eventually, the two of them made their way back to Canada – except Emily was not coming back alone. And at that moment, their lives would change forever.
Leading up to their wedding, the two of them were eager to see each other in their wedding day attire with Emily having chosen to wear a beautiful Maggie Sottero dress with lots of lace and champagne base, while Dan decided to rock a clean grey suit with a purple tie – a look that perfectly complemented their rustic farm wedding theme especially the beautifully designed archway over the bridge leading to the site of the ceremony.
Like many couples, the pandemic affected Emily and Dan’s guest list, as all of Dan’s family members in the UK were unfortunately not able to attend their wedding celebration. However, they definitely made the most of their day with those who were fortunate to be present – a truly unforgettable experience.
Photographing their wedding was a blast. It was the glancing of the eyes, the smiles of joy, the subtle touches of the fingers, and belts of laughter that made this event so special. These are the real moments I am always seeking for.
Their wedding day was filled with pure love and emotion. Have a look at some of my favourite moments from the day!
