After the sneak peek a few weeks ago, I’m finally posting more images from this super fun wedding at the Bavaro Princess All Suites in Punta Cana! Ryan and I rode the school bus to the airport at 3am with the Thursday-Thursday group (others arrived over the next couple days), and we had a great time getting to know everyone over the course of the week.

When the wedding day arrived (it was on the Monday), I met up with Judy and Jeff each individually to capture the “getting ready” images, and as well as shots of Jeff with the guys, and Judy with the girls, and then we asked the families to meet up with us for family photos, and they all got to witness the couple seeing each other for the first time that day. The ceremony was held just off the beach in a beautiful white raised pavilion, and the guests were seated on chairs on the lawn below. A three piece band accompanied Judy as her mother walked her down the aisle.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to champagne while the band continued to play, before we headed over to the steakhouse El Gaucho for dinner. Once the cake had been cut and served, we made our way back to the beach for a private dance party and some wonderfully touching speeches by the bridal party.

A couple days later we did a “Trash the Dress” session with the bridal party, but you’ll have to come back to see those in the next post!

Well this was one wedding that was running behind before the day even began (these two have been together for over 9 years!) With hair and makeup delays, losing track of time during our photo session, and a whole bunch of very touching and entertaining speeches (and some impromptu ones!), we never did get back on schedule. But none of the delays mattered, because this day was all about the love that Ashlee and Kaelan share with each other, and the close bonds they have with their family and friends.

I started out with the girls at the Mariott in Whitby, then met up with the guys at Kaelan’s mother’s home, then back to the girls at the hotel, and then followed the girls to Ashlee’s parents’ house for photos with their prized possession! Sounds a little chaotic, right? But it was so worth it! Their ceremony was held at Kingsview United Church in Oshawa, with all of Ashlee’s grade six students in attendance. The official photo session (and the reception that evening) took place at Cullen Central Park (formerly Cullen Gardens) in Whitby. I’m so excited to be shooting there a couple more times this year, as it’s a great location that many local families, including my own, frequented when we younger!

I had a hard time narrowing down my favourites, as there were so many that I know will have special meaning to this couple and their families, but I can’t post everything in one (okay, so this is the second, but who’s counting) blog post!

Don’t forget leave some love in the comments section!  xoxo Tara

You have captured the true essence of Ashlee & Kaelan’s day … This last picture is just beautiful!

There were so many great details from this beach-themed wedding, I just had to give them a post of their own! First a couple of bride/groom details, then the beachy goodness! I’m trying to narrow down my selections from the rest of the day, and then I’ll share more of this amazing day with you!
