Shanahan’s Barn Wedding | Sarah + Jeff | By Luke


In the midst of very cold October, the sun broke free for Sarah and Jeff’s wedding day.

Rocking up to the AirBnB where Sarah was getting ready, you were greeted by smiles and giddy excitement. Sarah, surrounded by her family and closest friends, prepared for her big day. Gifts were shared and tears were shed and the whole experience was shrouded in love! After Jeff showed up and they laid eyes on each other, the day proceeded like Swiss clockwork and was overflowing with joy. Sheltered from the wind in the woods at Mount McSauba, the bridal party sang songs and kept each other warm as photos were taken.

The sun continued to shine and wind continued to howl out of the North, but nothing could shake the warmth and love that Sarah & Jeff showed for each other. Their smiles were so infectious as they looked at each other in a way that let you know beyond a doubt, that these two were meant for each other. Neither of them could contain the excitement for what today was to bring. The time had FINALLY come for them to get married!

After a stunning ceremony, Sarah & Jeff modeled a wedding evening that I think every couple should take note of. It was focused on authenticity and the importance of family. Celebrating the family they already have and celebrating the reason why all the guests came in the first place! The NEW family of Sarah and Jeff Ferguson.

Congratulations you two! I couldn’t be more excited for you!
