I was looking forward to this lavender field engagement photo session for quite some time. Let me tell you… it was well worth the wait! We arrived at Weir’s Lane Lavender & Apiary in Dundas, 20 minutes before Rovita and Collin. By the time they got there I was so overwhelmed with the scent of lavender that I felt slightly tipsy 🙂 I guess that’s what lavender field does to your body on a hot summer evening. This place is a real feast for all your senses. First, the color of two different lavender plant species are just magnificent in mid-July. The farm has a few rows of lavender in front of the house and long rows in the back field. Second, the scent; it permeates the fields and the owners’ house ( I wonder if they can still smell it or if they got used to it to the point where they do not notice it anymore?). Mixed with a hot and sticky air of an open field it makes for a magical concoction. The sounds are amazing too! This place is also an apiary, so thousands of bees fly over lavender plants collecting nectar. Though Weir’s Lane Farm was out of lavender honey when we were there, I hope to go back one day to get the thing straight from the source.
So here we were… walking the fields with beautiful Rovita ( didn’t she look spectacular in her long, blush dress?!) and Collin (pulling well the clean-cut look, right?!). What can I say… Their session was bound to be romantic….
Congratulations on your engagement!
