a sunny muskoka wedding day at brooklands farm

dave and i were invited to document this beautiful weekend up north in muskoka at the end of august. driving up north and the feeling of the city falling away as the sun sets, waking up to the smell of pine needles on the air is one of the best feelings there is.

we greeted our couple with warm hugs at brooklands farm on a bright sunny morning as they were getting everything set up with their families, and spent a fun, relaxed morning with them, jumping in and out as their friends arranged the beautiful florals around the grounds. so many of the details of the day were made by the couple, who are both designers and have such creative talent that they incorporated into the day.

guests piled off school buses and with cocktails in hand made their way to the shade of a few pine trees for the ceremony, which was lighthearted and full of fun and laughs. following drinks and lawn games in the sun, we all headed into the barn.  the night finished off with the two of them dancing under the millions of stars that show up on a clear summer night up north.

“when our daughter started seeing him, we paid attention; we knew this time was different,” said the bride’s mom that night at dinner. “because when she met him, our daughter started to paint again.” there’s always a moment from every wedding that sticks with me, and this was it.
