Ashley & Kevin’s Glen Abbey wedding was like coming home for me. About two years ago, I shot Ashley’s sister’s wedding (Jenna & Glenn), so it was especially nice to see familiar faces and receive warm hugs of welcome from everyone. We love how close this family is with each other and their unique bond is so evident as soon as you step into their home. We are both so honoured to have been invited to capture their wedding…
Here is how Ashley & Kevin remember their beautiful day…
When I first saw her in her wedding dress…I thought ‘you look so beautiful you are going to bring tears to my eyes’. There were no words to describe how gorgeous she looked. I was trying to read her mom’s face and her dad’s face, taking it all in and hearing Coldplay in the background, what a moment.
My favourite moment…Wow that’s asking a lot, just ONE moment? Seeing everyone there with us, surrounding us, watching the two of us stand together as we said our vows and sharing with us in that moment.
Something that happened that I didn’t expect…My dad crying, looking at Ashley and saying ‘I have a daughter’.
When I first saw him all dressed up….I couldn’t wait to get past the crowd of people so that I could see the face of my person…the person who makes me so happy. I knew he would be handsome and to see him standing there, waiting for me with the biggest smile on his face and tears running down his cheeks is a moment I will never forget.
My favourite moment…Do I have to choose just one? The overwhelming feeling of love and support from our family and friends who stood with us to support our marriage. Kevin and I looking at one another like little kids as we rode off in the golf cart for pictures and holding my husbands hand as we left the venue for the night. We kept looking back at each other and all we could do was smile.
Something that happened that I didn’t expect…To feel so completely and utterly overwhelmed with love. I knew it was going to be an emotional day but waking up I was calm and ready. It wasn’t until I got to the top of the stairs to start walking down the aisle that I felt a huge rush. Seeing all of our family and friends standing, waiting for me so that they could witness Kevin & I marry was something that made me literally lose my breath.
