Justine & Adam's Private Estate Wedding


Justine and Adam’s farm wedding is one of my favourite weddings to date.  It was so unconventional and unique which is why I loved it sooo much.  They chose to have their wedding at Adam’s family farm in Southern Ontario under the old maple trees.  For their wedding ceremony they only had 5 guests, their parents, and the officiant.  It was one the sweetest things I’ve ever witnessed and it is exactly what they wanted.  After their intimate ceremony we snuck off to take their bridal photos in the barn, a cornfield, and a forest across the street before their guests arrived.  When we came back from taking photos Justine and Adam were greeted by their guests and were able to enjoy the rest of their day stress free because the ceremony was already over.  THEY WERE MARRIED!  Justine and Adam wanted their wedding day to be relaxed, fun, and more like a big party so they had a make your own Caesar bar (yum), a food truck serving up the most delicious poutine, lot’s of lawn games, and for dinner, delicious BBQ from a restaurant in Paris called Camp 31.  Side note; their food is amazing, check it out!  Once dinner was done, Justine and Adam had their first dance under twinkle lights and the stars and their guests joined in and the party began!  To end the night the wedding guests were handed sparklers and got to enjoy a fireworks show put on by the couple’s family and lots and lots of pizza that replaced your typical late night buffet.  I am definitely stealing that idea for when I get married, or it might even be the main meal haha.  Thank you Justine and Adam for throwing one of the best parties I’ve ever been to!   It was a blast!

Thank you to Alyssa Alkema for asking me to photograph this incredible wedding with her.
