Absolutely!  It is worth a second trip!!  Their last weekend of operations is Labour day weekend and then they reopen for a Thanksgiving event and Christmas event which would be so cute.  Makes me want to be a farmer.  haha

Sorry for the delay ladies!!! (@veryvalentine - here they are  ;)

 

WARNING PIC HEAVY!!! ...sorry, our amazing photographer and friend was amazing and spent 3 1/2 hours shooting yesterday and took over 450 photos. She went through them all and sent me about 175 of them early this morning! It was hard to narrow it down.

 

It was such an amazing day, I can't even tell you. It made us so excited for our wedding!! We spent the day getting ready and then arrived at Terre Bleu for 5pm. We had a private permit so the farm was entirely ours for 3 hours. The permit was a bit pricey but totally worth it when we saw all the different spaces we could use. They had a huge new structure that was just built about 3 weeks ago all made out of beautiful barn board, the lavender fields of course, a gorgeous gazebo, a trail in the woods, the lavender distillery and other nooks and crannies. We met Ian (who was so lovely) and he welcomed us to his family farm with open arms. We found out that they just opened their farm to the public for the first time last year for 10 days, during that time 7000 people came through the farm to check it out! This year they decided to open it to the public every weekend and holidays for the harvesting season. Just on Monday alone there were 1000 people that came through. Impressive!!

 

Due to the extremely harsh winter we had, some of the plants need to be dug up and replanted and the bloom started a lot later this year but I still loved being on the lavender farm and taking it all in. Of course it could have been a little more purple but that's mother nature and we were just so happy to be there just running around and frolicking in the lavender! They have two sides the french lavender (which are the taller plants that are just about to be harvested again) and then the english lavender (which are those cute little mounds and most of these plants have been harvested already). They do all the harvesting by hand!!! Anyway I could go on and on...I just loved the place and would go back (we missed out on the lemonade and ice cream).

 

Here are the pics! I'm pretty in love with them. It felt pretty magical (I know soooo cheesy) and it was just perfect. It was also so great to just be there with Sean and focus on us. We spent hours just looking at the clouds in the sky and laying in the grass...it's been a while since I've done that! :)

@snswedding2016 WOW, beautiful photos! Terre Bleu is such an amazing backdrop for your engagement photos. Your photographer is wonderfully skilled too and knows how to capture emotions and light perfectly. You and Sean are quite photogenic and you both look do comfy in front of the camera.

Wow they are beautiful!!! She did a fabulous job and you guys are lovely. My fave was 15:/18 where you were kneeling and the large tree was in the distance. So exotic feeling.

Thanks so much ladies!! You guys are so sweet!

 

@Wafflesmom Sean's definitely the one more comfortable in front of the camera between the two of us with him being in the 'biz'. Every so often he would just smirk at me and I was like "what are you smirking at?" and he would say "you're totally posing" LOL! He would break me out of it and we would take a deep breath and just focus on each other. It was always easier when I forgot she was taking photos.  :)

 

@calgarybride2015 We LOVED that tree!!! It was our favourite! It had so much character.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  

 

1. wow, you guys a super photogenic.

2.  Love that you were lavender and the dress is so pretty

3.  The venue is just perfect.  I love those clouds that your photographer was able to capture.

4.  It must have been so cool to have a private session there - I'm sure pricey but totally worth it.

 

It makes me wish we had invested some money on an engagement session at least for me to get comfortable in front of the camera.  I'm such a "Chandler" (friends reference) when it comes to photo taking so I'm not very photogenic or comfortable with the cam.  

 

Bravo!!!  I love them.  They totally set the mood for your wedding in paradise!  ;)

I've just read through the 5 pages that I've missed! I'm sooo far behind! Argh!

 

Wow!!! Your photos are stunning!!! Absolutely gorgeous!! You look so cute together and your dress is gorgeous! What a beautiful backdrop!

 

I love everything you've done so far! Your necklace is so pretty and what better place to wear it than on your wedding day! I love the d├ęcor! The straws are a cool idea! Definitely once you do chair sashes post so we can see them! The finished product on your wedding day is going to be beautiful!

 

So looking forward to the GTA brides meet!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
