Will + Ashley | Backyard Wedding

will + Ashley backyard wedding pei

You never know what your going to get for weather in Canada at the first of June and Will and Ashley lucked out huge!!! They planned for a backyard wedding overlooking the Hillsborough River and it could not have been more perfect! The sun was shining and all of their closest friends and family gathered to witness them vow to spend their lives together.

This is one of my favourite parts of the day, when the bridesmaids see their best gal as a bride
It’s usually when the bride realizes that she’s about to get married and she looks fan-friggin-tastic!!!
Will has a passion for hockey and last year while having a newborn, planning a wedding and building a new home, Will being away coaching 5-6 nights a week took a toll on Ashley and the family. After some thought, Will decided to step down as head coach for the upcoming year to spend more time with Ashley and his two boys. What Will didn’t know was that Ashley submitted his application for head coach to the board members. He loves his family, but he is happiest when he can be out on the bench coaching. He opened his gift on the wedding day to learn what Ashley had done, and although he is a man of few words or emotions, he had a big smile on his face when he realized what she did for him!
Will got Ashley a gorgeous bar necklace with their wedding date engraved
They may think that because you’re getting married, you no longer need them but it just means you have another amazing man in your life!
Will & Ashley’s son Luca may have stolen the show with a combination of that adorable suit and his wondering around downing his bottle. He was such a trooper all day long!
Ashley says in her sweet innocent voice “Do you guys think that maybe we should all shotgun a beer before we head to the reception?”
And so they did!!
