Brett & Yael | Oakdale Golf & Country Club Jewish Wedding

How would you describe Yael & Brett?  Brett is the one that makes everyone laugh, as he is happy go lucky when needed, but also caring and compassionate.  Yael is the perfect match for Brett.  She is quiet and supportive, and just lovely to be around.  You can’t help but smile when you’re with her, and neither can Brett.

Their wedding honored their Jewish heritage and was also a reflection of the love shared by family and friends.   The terrace of Oakdale Golf & Country Club in Toronto was a beautiful backdrop for this elegant wedding.   One of my favorite little touches that Yael & Brett had at their wedding was their chupa as it was flown around the world and had pieces sown on from different family and friends.  A great idea and an amazing keepsake.

The reception was a lot of fun, the speeches were beautiful, the candy bar was David’s favorite, and the dancing was a joy to watch.  Of course in order to get some nice pictures, I had to get involved and dance in there as well 🙂

Thank you so much Brett & Yael for including us in your special day, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness.

    Hi: Thanks for sharing your special and beautiful day with us. We enjoyed the celebration emmencely and will always remember it as one of the nicest weddings we have ever been to. What a lovely couple you two make! I also loved Yael’s dress-she was gorgeous and Brett looked handsome as always. The photos are fittingly captivating of such a grand event. We loved the mixture of black and white and colour. The flowers added a stunning palette of colour and the ceremony and dinner were documented very well. I think the quality of the photos are at the top over all.
