Dave and I LOOVVVE the great outdoors. We love taking our little dogs for long walks in the forest and even last Monday (a piping 27 degrees here in Toronto btw!!) took them to The Badlands for a bit of exercise and sunshine. They loved it- it was so hilarious watching little Greta trying to keep up with Fritzi on the hike… He just zips up the hills and she sorta hops and leaps when she runs lol! Each year we all love to relax in the heart of nature and go to our special spot, the little cabin in the woods.
This gives us a little R&R time with the dogs as well and we can take a break from the whirlwind of wedding season. When Kyle and Jessica were referred to us by Andrew and Emily we were conveniently enjoying our break away in Combermere not to far from Ottawa where Kyle went to school for Aerospace Engineering. Kyle ended up coming up to Combermere for an awesome wedding photography interview by lake!
While Jessica was with her parents in Florida, it was great that he could make it up because Ottawa is a 6 hour hike from Toronto. Even though he booked us with out his bride to be by his side, we think he made a pretty good choice 😉 and chose us as their wedding photographers on the spot!
Well, almost a year had passed since meeting Kyle and we were now getting pretty excited to meet Jessica, the girl Kyle described as his very beautiful fiance. When Dave and I first met her, we both noticed her gorgeous bouncy curls and striking sapphire blue eyes. The wedding was now just around the corner and you could feel the excitement in the air. Kyle and Jessica were to be married in the church that Kyle had attended his whole life and with a many of their friends and family as witnesses. All throughout the ceremony, you could feel the love they hold for each other and the love they have for God.
One of the most beautiful parts of the ceremony was when Jessica and Kyle expressed their love and servitude for one another by washing each others feet. This was a powerful, sybolic and beautiful expression of love and both Dave and I were moved to tears being witnesses to it.
After the ceremony we headed to Tangle Creek Golf Club for the reception. The brewing rain clouds began to blow in with an ominous forecast predicted, we made it in time to catch a few great shots of the newlyweds before the heavens opened up!
I love the way the winter trees look right before the buds start to bloom. Even when the rain hit, we still managed to get a few shots of Kyle and Jessica, while they snuggled under their umbrella. There is something so romantic about the rain, it was great to have such a fun-loving couple willing to risk getting damp in the name of photography.
Thanks so much to Kyle and Jessica and enjoy the warmer weather on your honeymoon in Cuba!!
