Susie and Erik couldn't have ordered better wedding for their late September wedding! Weddings in Lambton Shores / Grand Bend area are always some of our favorites!! I try to spend as much time during the summer along Lake Huron as I can so photographing this wedding was a real treat! The decor for their tented reception at Susie's parents house was divine!

Paula + Mark
{Carousel Room Western Fair Wedding Photography}

We love weddings with fun personal touches! Paula & Mark love horse racing, so they had their wedding at the Western Cair Carousel Room while the races were on! It was such a fun day, even Niki and I got caught up in the action and couldn't resist placing some bets ourselves (I won $4!!!) We also took some cute photos around their hometown of Dorchester to capture it!

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: timeless, romantic, gambling, big party. 

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Our first dance, just the two of us on the dance floor together. 
Groom: Seeing my beautiful bride for the first time.

Best wedding related decision: Choosing a race night at the Western Fair!

Favourite detail: Cake pops, poker chips

Advice for future brides & grooms: Be organized and then the day of you can just let everything flow while you sit back and enjoy the day. Also cake pops instead of cake make great leftovers!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nothing that we can think of. 

Best surprise of the day: The Bride's brothers doing the whole Gangham Style routine

Anything else you'd like to add: We're so happy HRM was there to capture our special day. All of our vendors were so professional and supportive. We couldn't have asked for a better team!

Justyna & Phil
{London Ontario Wedding Photography}

One of my favorite "styles" to shoot in is urban / downtown locations! London, Ontario has so many fantastic hidden spots in it's downtown core and I loved exploring them with Justyna, Phil & their wedding party! These out of the box locations made for some amazing pictures!

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Simple romantic 

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: my favourite memory of the day would be my father being able to come to the wedding given the circumstances
Groom: seeing my beautiful bride walk down the aisle only to take my hand in marriage

Best wedding related decision: Choosing HRM as our photographer to captivate our once in a lifetime moment.

Favourite detail: My favourite detail about our wedding was my mother's little touches. She made all the floral center pieces and  paper flower back drop.

Advice for future brides & grooms: don't fuss over the little things, at the end of the day it's not worth the stress.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? A lot of little mishaps but wouldn't change a thing, loved every minute of it.
