Picture it: Ailsa Craig, last Saturday. The heat was outstanding (feeling like 40ºC+) but so was Ashley & Ben's incredible wedding at Willow Creek Barn Events! Ashley planned a late September wedding, the day after the first day of Autumn, to avoid the heat and humidity...no such luck! But like with all things, it didn't phase either Ashley or Ben, and the day was absolutely perfect...right down to their own horses being brought on-site, a vintage VW Van, and their new puppy Lennon. What more could you ask for!?
The sunset at Willow Creek Barn was outstanding...breathtaking really! The whole lay of the land seems custom made for weddings and events, especially with the sun setting right behind the grove of willow trees that line the creek. We snuck out for a few minutes to capture the sunset in a nearby field, chasing the light as it dipped behind trees in the distance.
I mentioned there were horses, right? Nova and Rhett, Ashley & Ben's two boys, were brought in for the day from their hometown to help celebrate. I love people who understand that animals are family and deserve to be part of the wedding, too! Because of the extreme heat, we didn't have a tonne of time to work with them, but I'm so glad they were there!
And, like usual, we set out for some night photography...including one of my favourite of all time, taking on the dirt road under the light of the stars. If you know the Coldplay song "Yellow", you'll understand the quote I like to put with the photo:
So, without further ado, please take a trip through Ashley & Ben's wedding last weekend at Willow Creek Barn Events!
