A sweet fall wedding at the Elmhurst Inn in Ingersol! Julie and Jay celebrated their marriage with their closest friends & family in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. A gorgeous sunset was the icing on the cake to this perfect day! Congrats to the happy couple!

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

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Getting ready with my sisters, walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Jay for the first time
Groom: Losing a bet with our officiant that I wouldn't be the first of us to become emotional at the ceremony

Best wedding related decision: Not having a wedding party - it made things much simpler for everyone.

Favourite detail: The whole day was perfect, we couldn't pick just one thing!

Advice for future brides & grooms: Don't sweat the small stuff! It's a busy day and you don't want to spend it stressed out.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nothing!

The gorgeous bright colours of Tino & Dan's wedding day brightened up the dreary weather - I loved this couple's bold colour choices!! Rain or shine, the Elmhurst is always a wonderful location for a wedding and we had a wonderful time with this couple!

Dominique + Chris
{ElmHurst Inn Wedding Photography}

MAGICAL! There is no better way to describe Dominique and Chris's incredible wedding! When I first sat down with this newly engaged couple and their wedding planners from Blissful Bookings and they described their vision for an enchanted forest fairytale wedding I knew I HAD to be a part of it! It was truly an honour to be a part of this perfet day, and I can't wait to capture more happy memories for this wonderful couple in the years to come!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: A magical, forest, enchanted, fairytale!

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: "THE ENTIRE DAY! Seeing my groom for the first time, my Dad's speech, and feeling like a fairy princess"
Groom: "Seeing my bride walk down the aisle"

Best wedding related decision: Hiring HRM Photography - hands down the best/smartest money we spent on our wedding. That, and choosing to have a smaller- intimate family affair.

Favourite detail: Having both my Mom and Dad walk me down the aisle, as well as having the Groom's Grandfather have a speaking part in the ceremony.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Stay firm in your priorities, take your time, enjoy the process, and hire professionals!!! Photographer, Venue, and Wedding Planners... worth every, (affordable), penny!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We wouldn't change a thing...only wish the day lasted longer. 

Best surprise of the day: Seeing my Groom cry when I came down the aisle, even though he SWORE he probably wouldn't shed a tear, "not to get my hopes up" because he isn't an emotional guy...

Anything else you'd like to add: Choose to surround yourself with people who are not only at your wedding to do a job, but genuinely love what they do and make you feel like they are there because they love you and want you to feel like the most special couple in the world. Everyone, including the team from Elm Hurst, our Photographers, our Wedding Planners, the hair and makeup team from Alycat, our florist/decorator Russell, our MC/DJ... all of them made us feel extremely cared for.

Favorite wedding picture (and why): We literally could not pick a favourite picture, BUT, an image we were truly in awe of, was the absolutely magical evening, family-group, sparkler shot!!! you NAILED it!

Jessica and Adam's wedding seems like only yesterday, but it really was a lifetime away... this adorable couple were just in for newborn photos with their sweet baby boy! I photographed their wedding about a year and a half ago at the always lovely Elmhurst Inn and it was a perfect day! Everyone had so much fun and the bride, groom & their wedding party were awesome! Congrats Jessica & Adam - I'm honored that I've already started photographing the next chapter of your love story!
