Today we have a real nice treat for you! A few weekends ago we shot a very special wedding at an original location called Saunder’s Farm. Saunder’s Farm is very well known in the Ottawa region (especially Kanata/Stittsville) for having spectacular haunted houses for Halloween, awesome hayrides and most importantly mazes…yes, mazes! Real honest to goodness hedges carved out just like in fairytales. When Magda and I found out that Shawna and Mark were going to have their reception there we got super happy because we didn’t even know they hosted weddings!
It was extra special for us because we were among lots of friends at this wedding. Nimi + Grant were there, the Huges family was there, Kate, Nick and Rian too and Magda’s best friend Aleks with her husband Robin were also there to party with us! It looks like we’re the official photographers of this entire extended family! ;)
Because the ceremony and reception was held on site we had a very relaxed and enjoyable photosession, while walking around and exploring. It was almost overwhelming and we loved it! Old barn wood details, fields and mazes offered really interesting photos.
The day was unbelievably hot and muggy but that didn’t stop everyone from having an insane amount of fun. Everyone loved the rustic and country feel of the wedding so I guess the heat and mosquitoes were quite fitting (you can even spot them flying around people during the night shots during dancing!). Oh and Shawna and Mark started off their first dance as usual but then broke out into the Evolution of Dance routine! If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth it. And to top it off, Shawna is a music teacher and a few of her students sang, and played instruments during the ceremony and later too…and they were in-cre-di-ble. Their rendition of Adele’s Make you feel my Love was flawless (we used it for the slideshow below!).
Magda and I were honored to be a part of Shauna and Mark’s celebration and we wish them many happy years together. And as usual, we leave you with a few of our favourite images of the day along with a slideshow at the bottom. Thank you for visting our site!
