There’s quite the story behind Kayla and Maddy’s wedding day (a running theme for 2020 wedding couples)!

When I met with them back in 2019 to discuss their wedding day, the plan was to host family and friends at a magical summer camp on a lake in Canada. We were stoked, then BOOM. Crash – POW. 2020 hit us like a stray baseball square in the face.

Plans changed to hold things in the US. The changed again. Then Kayla and Maddy decided they didn’t want to wait, and went virtual. Let me tell you, these two absolutely nailed it. Virtual weddings are still mainly uncharted, awkward, poorly angled affairs. But they had 3 different camera angles during their ceremony, and even had family and friends split into separate Zoom rooms. They took time visiting each “room” during their reception.

And you know what? All the magic was still there, because their love is the real deal.
