The best thing to hold onto in life is each other — Audry Hepburn
Amy + Nick's wedding was set at her family's farm in Chilliwack, BC — a Fraser Valley farm that's been in the family for three generations. The home Amy and her bridesmaids got ready in was the farmhouse she gre up in, built by her great grandparents, setting the tone for a day with layers of personal history and full of antique windows, rustic mason jars and long-retired farm equipment. Amy + Nick wanted to get married at the farm but also have something unique to their wedding, so Amy's dad (with help from others!) planted a corn field with sunflower lined pathways leading to a centre field where the wedding reception and dancing took guest late into the warm August evening.
There were no shortage of gorgeous locations around the farm for portraits, plenty of grazing cows, fields, weathered barns, even a 200+ year old fallen giant cedar. Just before we returned for the reception, we slipped away to a nearby mountain top for a couple of intimate portraits against the backdrop of the Fraser River. It was such a joy to be included in a wedding that gave us glimpses into the decades of family history that was so linked to this land and location.
