Carlyn & Rob - Beautiful Farm Wedding at Dyments Farm, Dundas, Ontario

September 16, 2017  •  4 Comments

Carlyn and Rob had the most romantic wedding this past June. These two have been in love since they were 19 years old and I can just imagine the excitement and anticipation they were both feeling as this special day finally, finally arrived. After 7 years of being wedding photographers, there is one thing we notice - that couples that have been together since they were young, often have big, beautiful families who are also very close. This is exactly what Carlyn and Rob's families are like - close and loving and full of laughter and love and happy tears for these two gorgeous lovebirds.

As part of their wedding ceremony, they both poured sand from each beach that their cottages are on - from the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay - as a symbol of their unity. And their variation of a guest book was so unique and personal - everyone signed a custom cut piece of wood and they used it as their coffee table. Isn't that the best idea ever?! Plus one of their guests gave them a gift of customized canoe really can't get cuter or anymore Canadian than that! I just love it. :) 

The wedding took place at one of our favourite venues, Dyments Farm. I remember going on field trips there as a little kid and I'm so glad they opened up their beautiful facility as a wedding venue. It's so fresh and relaxed, with all the guests gathering on the patio for drinks and appetizers before the ceremony. And lets not forget the epic first look location - a gorgeous view of the town of Dundas, right at the edge of the Niagara escarpment. 

I love how Rob is cool as a cucumber throughout most of the day - except when he sees his drop-dead gorgeous wife, in her incredible two piece wedding dress, for the first time. These two truly do have one of the best first-look reveals that we've done in awhile! And the emotion and laughter and fun that happens during the speeches, this one is really one of my favourites of the year so far!

This is so sweet! you can really get a feel for this couple and their wedding through your way off writing along with the photography..your blog was a huge deciding factor while choosing a photographer to shoot our wedding:). Your personality shines and it seems like this is for fun and not a "job". I'm hooked on these blogs! Keep em coming!
