Aleah and Jeremy had a backyard wedding, and not the type of backyard wedding that you see in the movies, rather they turned Jeremy’s childhood home into the ultimate wedding venue. The front porch and walkway served as the ceremony site, the backyard for cocktail hour and a big white tent in the front yard held everyone for dinner and the reception. It was personal, beautiful and fun!
Top five favourite things from their day:
1.) Wedding Party. When Aleah and Jeremy told me that their total wedding party equaled twenty-two people (22!) at first I was afraid. And then, I was excited. First of all, to be so blessed as to have that many people in your life whom love and support you is a beautiful thing. Secondly, I always stress to couples that there are no rules, and that your day is about you – so do what feels right. To Jeremy and Aleah, that meant surrounding themselves with this amazing group of people, and in turn majorly testing my grouping skills! I adore their group photos and thank them all for being so on board.
2.) First Looks. Jeremy and Aleah had a first look before the ceremony and it was beautiful and emotional . . However . . Nothing can top the first look she shared with her dad . . . Except . . the first look she shared with her brother.
All of the love and all of the tears! So sweet.
3.) The Yellow Truck. Aleah’s dad restored this vintage yellow truck which seemed to appear throughout the day and perfectly fit in with all of the wedding decor. It was also what Aleah and her dad drove to the ceremony.
4.) All of the details. For Aleah and Jeremy, everything was in the details. Every time I turned around there was another amazing detail to photograph, from their photos being spotted at the bottom of beer cups to the canoe full of drinks – every last detail was perfectly and amusedly executed.
5.) Secret Dance. After a few moments of Aleah and Jeremy’s first dance to a slow and romantic tune, the music suddenly changed into an up tempo medley of songs from the musical Grease, with Jeremy and Aleah perfectly acting and mouthing every word – such a hilarious and cute surprise!
