It was a gorgeous, sunny day in beautiful Jordan, Ontario and Candice and her girls are all a-buzz. I just love the way the light pours in, it was like Nature was all thumbs-up for how pretty Candice looked.
During the ceremony, there was a lot of singing, which is wonderful because its like all of their loved ones are singing them into their new life together.
After the ceremony, there were lots of hugs – this picture is actually one of my favourite pics of the year.
Next it was time to head over to Lakeside Park in Port Dalhousie. They have this awesome old carousel there, fully restored – and still only 5 cents to ride! The carousel was carved between 1898 and 1905 and is totally awesome. Candice and Jake rented the carousel for half an hour and we had a blast snapping pics and gettin’ dizzy.
A little walk down the beach and we found a troupe of ragamuffin beach boys.
I love the deep purple that Candice chose for her bridesmaids, so elegant and yet the long dress style is flowy and light so it totally worked with the warm weather and beachy theme of the pictures.
Next we went to an park near Brock University that used to be quarry but has since been reclaimed into a beautiful natural oasis.
This is place where Jake asked Candice if she was interested in starting to date - she was ;)
It must be noted that Candice is a farm girl at heart and had no problem walking over the gravel road in her bare feet (check out the hot pink toenails, peeps)
but a little later on it was time for her new husband to come to the rescue. Rocks are one thing, brambles are quite another.
The following picture is not a picture of a bridesmaid falling and being embarrassed – it’s a picture of a bridesmaid doing the inchworm and totally rockin’ it. Talk about hidden talents!
And not to be outdone, the best man totally surprised us with a fabulous leap forward. (Actually just as a note, this best man did something amazing later in the night - he actually wrote, played and sung Jake & Candice a romantic song, just especially about them and it was really amazing!)
It's fun being married. :)
During the speeches, it can get kind of emotional. Candices sister stepped in to help Candice with the rest of her speech here, sweet huh?
And then this happened. :D This was a game, not sure what it was called, but something like ‘Guess which one is your husbands butt’. Too funny!! : )
This was arranged by a very helpful and talented flower girl :D
After the first dance,
It was time to party on down.
Just about every guest got their groove on, especially Jake with this classic gettin-on-down dance face.
Candice and Jake are a lovely couple who are just starting their lives out and are going to grow beautifully together in love and life. We wish them all the best!
