It’s amazing the effect a wedding day can have on people and each bride handles it differently. For Hayley, her time before the ceremony was filled with the typical chaos of hair, makeup, prepping, and anticipation! She and Jeff chose not to do a First Look, so she spent time with her girlfriends and away from Jeff. I could tell she was a little anxious for everything to begin, but it’s also amazing to see the effect that loved ones can have on people too.
As soon as Hayley started out for the ceremony, saw Jeff, and exchanged their vows, it was easy to see that all stress or concern had faded away. Together they were relaxed and happy and ready to celebrate. With the “hard work” behind them, it was time to party! Of course we had to get photos of just the two of them first though, and OMG they continued their streak of being super photogenic! I just love everything that we capture of these two!!
After that, everyone quickly found their places on the dance floor for the evening. I was able to be a bit creative with some mirrored decor and got a photo you’ll see at the end here that I think it pretty cool looking in to the dance floor from the outside.
So enjoy the highlights from Hayley and Jeff‘s wedding at Meadowlark Gardens!
