Backyard Kawartha Lakes Wedding

February 12, 2018

Natalie and Phil are two sincere people who chose to celebrate their day with family & friends in such a beautifully intimate way.  These two opted for a backyard wedding in Kawartha Lakes with a gorgeous tent, surrounded by endless fields and willow trees off the lake.

From experience I can definitely say that no two weddings are alike, but this was a first for me both travelling in the back of a gator AND being chased by cows!  (Don’t worry, they were just curious and left once they realized how boring we were!!). This fun field adventure meant so much more to these two as not only is this land rooted in family history but it was also where Phil first proposed to Natalie.

Backyard weddings always make for such a beautifully intimate gathering, and this wedding was no exception.  The closeness these two have with both each other and their families was felt in every single smile, laugh and hug throughout the day.  This energy, this love and this day was a pleasure and privilege to capture,
