Family Farm Wedding in Southern Ontario

Megan & Johnathan wed among the sheep and horses at a family farm.

Toronto wedding photographer, Megan Laura handed the camera over to her friend and fellow photographer Kayla Yestal to capture her and Johnathan’s beautiful affair on the farm! Kayla describes their day…

..”every time I think back to Megan and Johnathan’s wedding day, my whole face just immediately lights up. Megan, who is the incredible photographer behind Megan Laura Photography , had such a clear vision for her wedding day, and teamed up alongside one of her best friends, Lauren from Flourish Calligraphy , in order to bring her dreams to life.

The resulting day was the epitome of timelessness. Every single choice she made had so much thought and intention, from the venue, which was her family home in Southern Ontario, down to the smallest details on her invitation suite, complete with a freehand sketch of the property. Lauren was able to make absolutely everything cohesive by creating unique calligraphed details that were placed perfectly throughout the property. The entrances to the home and the ceremony site were lined with linen welcome signs, which perfectly matched the programs that were individually bound together with Poetry of Silk ribbon. Resting stations with wooden benches could be found surrounding the ceremony and reception areas, with baskets full of blankets adorned with “cozy up” signs. Megan and Johnny even carried a stunning linen “Mr and Mrs Bialas” sign during their portrait time, that they now have with them in their new home together.

Beyond the incredible details, Megan and Johnny’s wedding day was purely focused on bringing together family and friends in a way that was so personal to them. Since most of Megan’s family was flying in for the wedding from England, it was really important to them that they could spend as much time together, and less time traveling to different locations. For that reason, all of the wedding day events took place on the property, with the couple only venturing off as far as down the street to have their portrait session on a family friends apple orchard.

My absolute favourite part of the day was when Megan looked down to the ground at the end of their portraits, kneeled for a moment, and popped back up with a perfect four leafed clover and the biggest grin I had ever seen. It was the perfect way to sum up such a magical day, and to really start the celebrations for the rest of the evening.”
