Jackie & Russ
{Spencer Hall Wedding}

About a year ago, on the same day I received 3 inquiries for the same date and all 3 couples wanted to meet on the same day! Yikes! I thought to myself, well they can't all want to book me so I'll meet with everyone and see how it goes... well, they ALL wanted to book me and I felt awful because of course I could only book one couple. I decided it was only fair to book the couple that had emailed me first.... lets just say that I'm very glad that Jackie and Russ were that first couple as I absolutely adored them from the moment I met them and couldn't imagine not shooting their wedding! From start to finish everything about their big day was perfect! Beautiful couple, loving family, fun wedding party - a dream!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Classic, fun, and relaxed

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Standing back with Russ and watching all of our family and friends during the cocktail hour - it was so amazing to have almost all of the most important people in our lives together at one time!
Groom: Standing with friends and family watching Jackie walk down the aisle.

Best wedding related decision: HRM Photography and Rick McGhie to play the ceremony and cocktail hour!

Favourite detail: The beautiful flowers - the colours looked so perfect for Spring against the green grass.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Take a few moments together throughout the day to take a mental snapshot. The whole day went by like a whirlwind and it's hard to remember all the details!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Everything was perfect, but I would worry a little less about all the little details!

Best surprise of the day: Beautiful jewelry from Russ, and the wonderful speeches from our family.

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?):
#433 of us with the whole wedding party. Everyone just looks relaxed, and like themselves!
#770 of Russ and I listening to the speeches after dinner. It reminds us of how happy we were, and how much fun the entire day was!
