From Samantha Ong Photography:
Hayley and Ivan’s wedding was so so special. On a whim a few years ago, Hayley decided to volunteer in a small town in South Africa sending her friends and family in a shock. Ivan recalled how he had actually given up on finding that someone special. Until his sister called. His sister called him out to a bar one night to meet a Canadian girl. They ended up hitting it off right away.
When Hayley’s friends and family found out she was falling in love with a man in South Africa it turned everyone into a frenzy. But when they met Ivan, all their worries went away. He was such a kind-hearted man who truly loved Hayley. Hayley and Ivan ended up moving back to Toronto where he now has his Canadian permanent residency! Woohoo!
I love photographing a wedding in Kettleby. It’s actually located close to King City and Newmarket and it’s surrounded by beautiful natural lush greenery all around! The venue itself provides such a classic feel which was perfect for Hayley and Ivan’s traditional Jewish ceremony and reception but also keeping it natural and fun! Karen Baker created a beautiful chuppah outdoors under the tent that overlooked the pond.
What is incredible is that most of this wedding was actually planned by Hayley’s mother Judi. She took the reigns while Hayley was away volunteering at a camp for the whole of the summer!
I can’t tell you how much I loved photographing this wedding and how special it was. From Ivan’s parents who flew into Canada all the way from South Africa just for the wedding, Hayley’s best friend welling up in tears when he first saw her in her dress, to Hayley’s grandfather yelling out in their crowded reception room, “this is the best day of my life!”. Honestly, though.. every time Hayley’s grandfather shed a tear in joy – it tugged at all our heartstrings! He was so adorable and just so happy to see Hayley get married.There was truly so much love and joy in the room and it was so so amazing to have been there to capture it.
