I can’t believe another wedding season is officially starting! Magda and I are very excited for 2014 as we will be working with some really amazing people and can’t wait to share our experiences throughout the year. Hayley and Jake are two of those people and today we have the pleasure of sharing their wedding day with you. Our history with Hayley’s family goes back to 2010 when we photographed her sister Katrina’s wedding. Then our relationship took off when we found out we’ll also be photographers for both of Katrina’s younger sisters. Which brings us to today!
It was a very cold but also very beautiful and snowy day. I dropped Magda off at the gorgeous Mahogany Spa in Carleton Place where Hayley and the girls were getting ready and then headed over to the prestigious Royal Ottawa Golf Club to hang out with the boys. They guys were downstairs having a blast playing pool, ping pong and eating delicious snacks while the girls were getting pampered at the other end of town.
As expected, the Royal Ottawa Club was the perfect setting for an elegant and classy affair. Hayley’s dad brought everyone to tears just as he did both previous times while he walked Hayley down the aisle. After the wedding we headed outside. Yes, outside! It must have honestly been -15°C with very strong winds but we were fortunate that Hayley, Jake and the whole bridal party were adamant on getting beautiful photos. It was really really cold but because it was very important for Hayley and because they were so focused on each other, both Hayley and Jake could not care less about the temperature while we took photos. They laughed, hugged and snuggled through the blistering cold which immediately showed us how close of a couple they were.
The evening ended off with some touching words from Hayley’s father, great food and a really fun party. It means the world to us that we were part of the Feasby family by being the photographers for all three of their girls. Every wedding was unique in it’s own way, but what struck us the most was how much love and care went into each celebration. We wish Hayley and Jake an amazing life together and we thank you again for bringing us with you on your journey that day.
We leave you with our favourite moments from the day as well as a slideshow. Enjoy!
