Stephanie and Steve had a decision to make; they were one countless couples affected by COVID but they didn’t let a worldwide pandemic stop them from celebrating their love. They postponed their big party until later and opted for an intimate lavender farm wedding. Stephanie’s family owns Tullamore Lavender Co. so it seemed like a no-brainer to host the wedding at the lavender farm! If you’ve never been to a lavender farm before, stop what you’re doing and find the nearest one to you! It’s such a serene place to be and the smell is out of this world. We’re fortunate to have a large number of lavender farms in Southern Ontario and Tullamore is worth the drive!
So what do you do when you have a teeny tiny group of people, an intimate outdoor lavender farm wedding planned and you see the clouds are rolling in and getting darker by the minute? You go ahead with the wedding – after everything they’d been through, do you think they’d let a little weather get them down?
A tent was set up for shelter just in case of rain and with socially distanced tables, it was perfect for drinks and appetizers but the ceremony still took place overlooking the fields. The wind was wild and hair blew recklessly in the breeze, a few shivers here and there but quickly resolving with an embrace from your special someone. The ceremony was beautiful and filled with laughter and genuine emotion; even the kids stayed focused on the wedding (or maybe they were watching for rain clouds?)
A quick photo session in the fields and at the house with their dog was a must before the evening continued on with the reception amongst the small group. I’m so excited to do this all again in the near future when the big party happens!
