Kait and Mike's beautiful summer wedding took place at the Timber Barn in St Jacob's, Ontario. I’m always ecstatic when couples opt for a wedding in St Jacob’s as I personally think the village is the perfect location to get married. Not only does the unique architecture and Conestogo river provide a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos, but there is SO much for your wedding guests to see and do in St Jacob’s during their time in town.
The wedding day kicked off with Mike and his friends shooting hoops at their home (how fun!?). Being big Raptors basketball fans, the morning of their wedding Kait gifted Mike a signed basketball and jersey (with specific instructions not to wear it down the aisle hahah).
After getting ready with Mike, we headed over to the Timber Barn where Kait was getting ready in the bridal suite. Kait had thought of all the details, providing us with a box of family heirlooms and beautiful bouquets that she had arranged herself. There was so much thought and intention put into Kait & Mike’s wedding day, which was felt by everyone celebrating. It was an emotion filled morning with not one, not two, but three first looks.
Kait and Mike had a beautiful riverside ceremony joined by their closest friends and family. St Jacob’s riverside ceremonies are always such a wonderful experience with lots of shade from the surrounding trees and a light breeze coming from the river. Everyone then headed to the reception, where Kait and Mike had wonderfully decorated everything themselves. The Timber Barn food was spectacular and the speeches were so moving that I felt myself wiping away some tears.
At the end of the night, Kait and Mike’s friends and family did NOT disappoint on the dance floor. (Justin and Steve, please provide details about your dress pants because we’re still not sure how all the seams are intact after multiple splits and high kicks…)
Last but definitely not least, the night ended with a snack bar. The pretzels were a huge hit not only for the guests but for us photographers as well haha.
Kait and Mike thank you so much for having us capture your day, we couldn’t have asked for a better day of celebration.
