What the made the day even more special was the idea for the guests to form a heart shape in the field after the ceremony to symbolize their love for Chris and Ashleigh.

Aerial imaging photographer Mack Evenden captured the moment for the couple using his drone, and explains to PTBOCanada how it went down:

"The idea came sooner, but we didn't actually work on making the heart until two days before the wedding when my friend, and Chris's cousin, Mike Raymer (an engineer and now a full time firefighter in Ajax), actually calculated out the perimeter of the heart needed with roughly 150 guests with each person taking up roughly 3 feet of space sideways."

"Once they spray painted the heart with their calculations, they cut the grass so that it was easier for the guests to know where to stand and the spray paint wouldn't show up in the picture," Evenden tells PTBOCanada.

"I was given 15 to 30 minutes to round everybody up and take the shot. We made an announcement directing everybody where to go, and they all lined up. The photographs and video were taken in less than 20 minutes. Having the heart shape cut out of the grass greatly reduced the amount of time needed for people to get into position."

Here is what it looked like from the sky, with guests forming the heart around the bride and groom...
