Lakefield Weddings Summer Barn Wedding

Aug 10, 2022

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

That statement could be any more relatable for Megan and Anthony. These two have lived two hours away from each other up until their wedding day.

I can’t even imagine!

People always talk about how time-consuming and stressful wedding planning can be. Well try adding distance into the mix, and it may be even more difficult. Zoom calls, constant emails, and jam-packed wedding planning weekends is what allowed these two to have the most beautiful Lakefield Weddings summer barn wedding.

These two deserve an MVP award!

From the beautiful florals that accented each moment throughout the day to all the memories that were created, Megan and Anthony crushed wedding planning. The best part, though (maybe one step below getting married), is that they no longer have to constantly plan when they will see each other. Now they just get to wake up beside the other each morning.

What an amazing gift that must be!

Saturday’s wedding was so sweet in every way! Megan was very emotional during each part of the day: first look with dad, first look with Anthony, ceremony, and first dance. It was special to see how each of these moments meant so much to her. She was truly taking in every second and just living in that exact moment.

What an honor it was to photograph this Lakefield Weddings summer barn wedding!

Megan and Anthony, I am seriously just jumping for joy that you two are living under one roof! It has been so long, and you two deserve it! You deserve to close your eyes each night beside the other. You deserve to wake up each morning, and the first thing you see is the other one smiling at you. I am just so happy because you deserve it all!

Never take those moments for granted!

The biggest congrats to you two! I hope you enjoy some of my absolute favorites from your day. Phew, it was definitely difficult to narrow it down! What a beautiful day!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
