Jackie and I have been friends since we were about seven. We used to write letters (that’s right – snail mail) to each other. We didn’t always spend a lot of time with each other throughout the years, but I knew she would always be there for me if I ever needed a friend. Back in April 2009, when I got married, Jackie was there and signed as my witness. Shortly after my wedding is when I first heard of Ashton. I enjoyed following their relationship from a far. It seemed as if they were well suited for each other; they were happy and very much in love.
Late at night in July of 2011, I got a call from Jackie telling me she was ENGAGED! I was thrilled for her and very excited that one more of my friends would be getting hitched. I look forward to our marriages and families growing up together. I know that while there are up and downs in every relationship, Jackie has the quality to make friendship and love last.
I was brought to tears when Jackie asked me to be a bridesmaid, as initially the plan was to have me photograph her wedding. Getting to spend more time with Jackie, in preparation for the wedding, reminded me how fun she is to be around and finally gave me the opportunity to get a good look at Ashton.
Ashton, like Jackie, has a positive and enthusiastic approach to life. He is outgoing, thoughtful, and very affectionate to Jackie. He definitely is ready to be committed to providing for and protecting Jackie.
It is an honour to be a part of Jackie and Ashton’s life.
I hope you enjoy the beautiful photography of Ryan Tam and Leanne Tam as they captured Jackie and Ashton’s wedding day!
