meaghan + adam | evermore wedding


They were planning a July wedding. Thoughts of 35 degree heat and humidity thick enough to slice with a knife was on everyone's mind. And even when we pushed the sweaty thoughts aside, the weather report told us there would be thunderstorms right around the time of the ceremony. Perfect. 

But Meaghan and Adam must have some seriously good ju-ju because Saturday morning brought us nothing but blue skies, sunshine, and a cool breeze. It was the perfect day for Meaghan to marry her best friend, and Adam to marry his. I can't say enough good things about this wedding day from the first few moments I spent with the guys while they got ready, to the sweet first dance under the chandeliers in the Evermore barn. It was my first time shooting at this amazing new venue in Almonte and I can't WAIT to go back three more times this Summer.








That morning was the first time the girls saw their bridesmaids dresses all in a row. We were all obsessed with how great they looked!



The happiest bride-to-be <3 Meaghan is organized, thoughtful, and has incredible taste. She had planned every detail so thoroughly that she was able to sit back and simply enjoy the wedding day as it happened.



















Quick moment to notice the engagement photos on the wall!





I loved the detail of the engraving on Adam's watch. 4:00pm -- the time they'd meet at the altar. So sweet <3


Meaghan and Adam's wedding took place at the gorgeous new venue, Evermore, in Almonte. 


And the first look happened beneath the willow tree...














This sweet couple opted to have the wedding party photos and the family photos before the ceremony. It was important for them to mix and mingle with as many people as possible before sitting down to dinner. 

Get ready to see the most beautiful people, all in a row, with the loveliest bouquets by Presh Floral.




























Tanya from Presh ALWAYS delivers. Look at this stunner:





Over in the backyard, the guests started to take their seats for the ceremony.









I love this ringbearer's concentration...





When I saw this photo, I knew it would bring a tear to Meaghan's eye. Her Nonno is so important to her. So much so, that she even sneaked over to him for a hug before taking her place at the altar.
























Instead of a guestbook, Meaghan and Adam had their guests sign this massive wooden cheese board. After seeing their home that morning during the groom preparations, I could definitely see it fitting in with the decor in their beautiful kitchen.












Alyssa from Crave Desserts made this "naked" cake and it is just darling.








Meaghan and Adam -- thank you for introducing me to the amazing people in your lives, and allowing me to document the GORGEOUS day that was July 23rd. It has been a pleasure from the first day we met. 
I hope your honeymoon is favoloso <3
