From Outside In Studio... If you fol­low hockey even a little, you’ll prob­a­bly rec­og­nize the groom in this video as Corey Perry from the Ana­heim Ducks. You’d also prob­a­bly know about the incred­i­ble 2014/2015 sea­son they had. We only had a cou­ple of weeks between the time he and Blak­eny got back up to Canada and their wed­ding day to get to know them and put together this beau­ti­ful lit­tle same-day edit for them.

Over the past year, we e-mailed back and forth with Blak­eny to get a sense of who the real Blake and Corey are; how they met, how the pro­posal came about, what they like to do together, etc. They finally found them­selves in Toronto in Decem­ber when the Ducks were facing-off against the Leafs. We took the chance to meet Blak­eny over cof­fee and really hit it off. She told us that Corey trav­els so much dur­ing the sea­son that when he’s finally off, they escape their Cal­i­for­nia home and make for their cot­tage in Peter­bor­ough, Ontario to wind down for a few weeks.

We com­pletely loved this idea and pro­posed that we tag along on one of their lazy cot­tage days and cap­ture them get­ting a lit­tle R&R. Now the tim­ing would be the hard­est part of it all — the wed­ding sea­son being such a crazy busy time of year for us and the Ducks com­ing closer and closer to the Stan­ley cup as the sum­mer pro­gressed. Luck­ily, we were able to finally nail down a date the week before their wed­ding and we all met at their cottage.

The atmos­phere was utterly relax­ing and you could tell that Blakeny and Corey really felt at home there and around each other. We quickly real­ized that they’re two really down-to-earth peo­ple who truly find hap­pi­ness in each other. Whether they’re play­ing shuf­fle­board, boat­ing, or sim­ply sit­ting around watch­ing TV, they make each other laugh and are gen­uinely more com­fort­able and at ease when the other is around, even if just in the same room. We spent the day doing noth­ing and every­thing you can imag­ine, while lit­tle kids kept swim­ming up to the cot­tage to see if Corey Perry really lived there. It was hilarious.

The wed­ding day arrived before we knew it and we were happy to fol­low these two around and cap­ture all the ele­gance and rus­tic charm. A tes­tament to just how chill Blak­eny and Corey are was the fact that they had no idea what to expect for their cer­e­mony or recep­tion — they pretty much let Shealyn from Bliss Events design to her heart’s con­tent, and spent most of the day oohing and ahhing along with us.
