summer wedding bride groom romantic dance field horses BC interior Canada Day

What did I love about this beautiful outdoor BC summer wedding?  Here are just a few things:

That dress!!!!!!!  by Hailey Paige

The location… her Auntie’s farm

The couple…  seriously, Melissa and Brody may be the sweetest people on earth!!

The bridal party… It was a HOT afternoon and they were absolute troopers out in the fields.  AND, the cooler they brought along not only had beer in it, but even some water 🙂

The emotion… from a crying groom to incredible joy, laughter and tears at the reception, this day was full of beautiful emotion.

The details… so much thought and work went into making this day a stunning day… from the homemade jam to the succulents on all the tables, the horses in the field (yes please!) the racks on the table, some of them collected in the forest, the handmade by mom denim blankets covering all the hay bale seats, hand painted signs everywhere, the custom made arch… flowers grown on the property, I could go on… it was stunning!  Every detail so well thought out and so perfectly, uniquely suited to the couple.

The weather... a beautiful hot summer day, with just enough of a breeze to blow that gorgeous dress around and just enough clouds for periodic respite from the sunshine.

The dance floor… made by the bride’s dad.

With the exception of hair and makeup appointments (and Julie of Quaint Hair Designs did a phenomenal job with the hair!!!!!!!!) the whole day happened on the farm, right down to a ton of guests camping out in the fields.  With property this picturesque we didn’t need to go farther than the fields and towards the river all day.  Melissa sent me little snippets of wedding ideas she was planning over the winter and spring and the more I heard the more excited I was to see her dreams in real life.  And I wasn’t disappointed!  So many people poured love and hard work into this wedding and it showed!  Melissa and Brody, you guys have the most amazing friends and family and it was an incredible honor to document the celebrations!!!!! xo
