What started off as a karaoke performance of “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz concluded as a Black Creek Pioneer Village wedding.
Ashley and Rob’s Toronto island engagement photos have been some of the most popular images not only on my Facebook page but also on my blog. I was thrilled to see what this ultra lovey-dovey and naturally photogenic couple had in store for their wedding day!
Rob and Ashley’s wedding was a “one stop shopping” kind of day. In lieu of a fancy hotel, they opted to get read at Black Creek itself so that they could have a more relaxed day and benefit from not having to schedule travel time into the day. I was thrilled to meet Christian from One Heart Films on this beautiful wedding morning. Normally photographers and videographers compete for similar shots throughout the day and the relationship can be tense at times, but Christian was a dream to work with. When Rob and Ashley hired their vendors, they chose vendors who not only had great work but whose personalities were similar to their own; people they could be friends with. A few months later and not only have Ashley and Rob become great friends but Christian has too. This wedding day was the start of several fantastic relationships.
Ashley’s custom-made rose tone dress was as ravishingly beautiful as she was. Although a non-traditional colour, Ashley didn’t forget about a white dress. She wore her mum’s wedding dress during their first dance together.
Rob proposed as he sang “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz, so it was only fitting that he wrote Ashley a love-note that contained tickets to a Jason Mraz concert. Rob is a romantic at heart and Ashley is one lucky lady!
Oh, you thought I’d leave out Ashley’s gift to Rob? No way! She’s just as thoughtful and sweet as he; buying him a gold record to commemorate his performance of “I won’t give up” the night he proposed.
Yes, this wedding made me cry too… and they hadn’t even walked down the aisle by this point! Bring on the tissues….
What a night! Congratulations Ashley & Rob on a beautiful wedding day – I wish you and your families years of love, joy and happiness!
