Kara and Brandon initially planned to have a beautiful resort wedding on Vancouver Island. Like many other 2020 couples, Covid-19 dashed their plans for a big wedding. However, to make the best of the situation, they quickly adapted their plans. The new plan was a backyard wedding at their friends farm in Pitt Meadows.
The bride and groom held their ceremony at the wharf in Osprey Village on the sunniest day in August. Twenty of their friends and family surrounded them. After the ceremony, the family members lined the streets to surprise them and celebrate with them from a distance.
Afterward, they held their reception at their friend’s farm on a private property. It was lit by string lights and set up next to a field of alpacas. The guests feasted on a taco bar, and enjoyed a mason jar mojito bar. The wedding style was rustic, intimate, and casual. It was perfect for a backyard farm wedding in Pitt Meadows.
This year has been a challenge for couples doing their best to adapt to a not-so-ideal situation. However, there is an intimacy that comes with having a small wedding and it has been amazing for creating beautiful personal images. I have been living for backyard weddings this year, and having a wedding at an alpaca farm was just icing on the cake.
