Hayley and Vince attended the same high school and were familiar with one another… but didn’t become friends until Grade 11. Even then, it was casual friends and although Vince always thought Hayley was funny and smart, it was the end of Grade 12 that Vince realized he couldn’t stop looking at Hayley. He’d spend whole classes trying to catch her attention until she became his girlfriend. ;)
They’ve been together for over 8 years now and on Saturday, August 22nd became husband and wife in a beautiful (hot, bright, sunshiny) ceremony at UBC Cecil Green Park House. I love Hayley’s soft and romantic details, her beige flats (with the bow detail that matched her bow earrings!), peony bouquet and rings. Hayley got into her wedding dress with the help of her sister and maid of honour Justine and mom – before walking down the long set of steps to her awaiting groom.
Hayley and Vince exchanged vows they had written themselves. (Hayley’s made me laugh. “Vince, you’re hot all the time which makes you perfect for Toronto winters and thank you for holding my hand in the summer even though I know it makes you sweat even more like you’re sweating right now.” –That’s my paraphrase from memory, of course.) After the morning ceremony, guests mingled with the bride and groom over coffee, tea and dessert before we had some time set aside for portraits! I loved shooting on the UBC Cecil Green Park House property and loved the images we captured.
Hayley and Vince, thank you so much for being amazing clients! And writing me such a sweet note the day after the wedding, before you even saw any of the photos. Thank you, thank you!
