Jay and Leslie where do I begin?
I met Leslie in University on the Ontario University Equestrian Association (OUEA) show circuit, she rode for Ryerson University and I for York University. Actually as I'm writing this I think we may have been in the same riding circle since we both rode in Stouffville Ontario prior to university. When Jay and Leslie approached me about photographing their wedding, excited was an understatement. Amazing couple, amazing theme (Great Gatsby) and an amazing bridal party who I also rode with for years. We had so much fun with our bridal party, as you'll see the girls singing Backstreet Boys tunes!
Now we photograph a lot of couples and we see a lot of love, but the love between Jay and Leslie is something for Jane Austen romances (the happy ones). While we photographed the beautiful bride, Jay would just come and admire her beauty, affirming her while we photographed and then would WILLINGLY jump in for photos, do you hear that men...WILLINGLY! Jay's reaction to Leslie in her dress during their first look will go down in our Alabaster Jar history as one of the best.
Everything about the day was just so unique and so beautiful. Kailee, the brides sister, maid of honour and planner extraordinaire did an incredible job on all the details. If you scroll to the bottom you'll see her details, I would recommend her Planning business to ANY bride. Let's also not forget the incredible bridal party and guests who went all out, and rocked the 1920s Great Gatsby theme, as you'll see in the photos. Every aspect of the day was so thought out and to personal, from both ceremonies, to a dance routine from the couple that was sure to make you blush!
Well if I keep typing no one will read this because I know Leslie is counting down the minutes until her pictures arrive!
