I work wayyyyyy more than I blog, but I think it's high time I shared a look into a wedding at one of my favourite places in the world, Brooklands Farm.
In a few short years, Ken and Katya Riley have created one of Muskoka's most sought after wedding venues at their historic family farm property, where they grow organic vegetables and berries and make Muskoka's best maple syrup (well, maybe with the exception of my own.)
I get the pleasure of working here a few times a year, and the celebrations are among the most beautiful, fun and natural wedding days I've ever witnessed.
Kaitlin and Kyle's early summer wedding was no exception. The skies were bright but intense, the light was shifting and surreal, and the couple's obvious love for each other brought a palpable sense of joy to the outdoor ceremony. Kaitlin and her girls got ready in the 19th century log house on the property, Kyle and his boys arrived in a sweet VW van, the apple tree was in full flower, and their friend officiated the ceremony in full farmer getup.
The historic barn at Brooklands is picture perfect, at first making a romantic dinner setting, then transforming into dance party heaven, where the band can throw down and the guests can get down under the twinkle lights and soaring timbers.
Take a peep at the photos below, and I think you'll see why everybody loves this place so much.
(And don't tell the farmer Kaitlin stood on his tractor. It's not allowed.)
