Chelsea & Shawn
Chelsea & Shawn’s dreamy South Pond Farms wedding in mid September was an absolutely gorgeous, love-filled celebration shared with some of the kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know. The weather was balmy and breezy and the sunset was long and picturesque over the rolling hills surrounding us, and it was pretty much everything spectacular all placed in a single day. So don’t mind me while I full on obsess over how incredible this day was.
We started the day off at the boys’ getting ready location, Motel 6 in Whitby (ps how awesome are Shawn’s dinosaur socks and blue painted toenails?!), before heading over to South Pond Farms for the remainder of the wedding day. The girls got ready in the charming cabin beside the barn, a fantastic spot with lots of mid-day sunlight streaming through the tall windows.
If you’re looking to have a golden hour outdoor ceremony, South Pond Farms is THE perfect place for your wedding because their ceremony location is even more stunning as the sun dips lower. Something I thought was a really cool idea was how the guests tossed lavender seeds at Chelsea & Shawn as they were walking down the aisle after the ceremony. Talk about the most beautiful smelling exit ever haha!
All the wedding party photos with this amazing group of people were so fun and epic to shoot. I adored our time spent capturing Chelsea & Shawn’s bride and groom portraits as well. There’s tons of pretty spots across the property for photos, and we even got the chance to take some cute pics with the goats of the farm – yes!!!
Barn weddings will always have a special place in my heart, and I loved how the reception chairs at South Pond Farms are all one of a kind, no two chairs are the same! This goes for the plates as well, which is such a unique addition to the character of the barn. And the food, oh my goodness the food at South Pond is out of this world delicious.
There were so many beautiful moments throughout the evening with many happy tears shared across the room, and some of the sweetest speeches I’ve ever heard. I’m so thankful to Chelsea and Shawn for letting me capture their special day, and I am beyond happy and excited for these two and their new life together! Congratulations and all the best to you both <3
