Jessica + Chris
{Westover Inn St. Mary's Ontario Wedding Photography}

We had such a blast photographing Jessica and Chris on their wedding day! Despite Chris having a broken collar bone, this couple absolutely rocked their photos with and without the sling! This day was filled with so much laughter and happiness, it really was a treat to spend the afternoon with them! Westover Inn was absolutely stunning as well, we couldn't have asked for more beautiful locations to explore with this awesome couple!

Heather + Brian
{Waterfront Banquet Conference Centre Wedding Photography}

Heather and Brian had a beautiful, warm fall wedding day at the stunning Waterfront Banquet Center in Hamilton! We adored this sweet couple from the moment we met and knew their day would be perfect! From the emotional moment during their first look, to the dreamy details and beautiful florals, this day really was picture perfect! Not to mention their wedding planner Jennifer was absolutely amazing, we loved working with her!!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: romantic, elegant, dreamy, and fun

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: There are so many. The entire day was a dream. Some of my favourite memories are our first look, walking down the aisle with my dad, our first dance, and dancing with all of our friends to the performance by one of Brian’s best friends
Groom: Hanging out with my groomsmen in the morning, the first look, and taking pictures after the ceremony as the sun was going down

Best wedding related decision: There’s two! Hiring Jennifer, our wedding planner – she helped us in more ways than we can express. And choosing Niki as our photographer – her energy and experience put us completely at ease and made pictures so much more fun

Favourite detail: Our cake topper. It was very subtly Disney-themed, which brought everything full circle to when we got engaged – after coming home from a magical vacation at Disney World!  

Advice for future brides & grooms: Have fun! Enjoy yourselves, live in the moment. The day goes by so fast, it’s unreal. For us, hiring a wedding planner was the best thing we could have done. She made the day much less stressful for us. We highly recommend a planner to everyone. And hire photographers that are going to bring out your real personalities, because pictures last forever. The girls at HRM have so much experience and love what they do, you feel completely prepared and cared for with them

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? No, not one thing – it was the perfect day!

Best surprise of the day: My favourite surprise was seeing my dog dressed up in his bow tie, so cute! And getting two bracelets from my husband for wedding gifts!

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): I have two again, I can’t help it! The first is the night time photo of us kissing. The night photos that HRM does were one of the main features I loved so much while doing my research. They are absolutely epic. I was so excited to have some of our own and they did not disappoint! It is incredible. And the second is a picture of Brian kissing my cheek, while I have my hands up to his face, holding my veil so that it goes in front of my smiling face. Niki came up with this pose and every time I look at it I love it a little more. It’s like she captured a private moment between the two of us, Brian whispering in my ear. It’s dreamy, it’s soft. It’s a small moment in time where we stopped to appreciate each other and the fact that this day is about our love and our future. It’s perfect. All the pictures are amazing. Brian’s favourite picture is the night picture, he thought it was so cool!

Anything else you'd like to add: We couldn’t be more grateful to have such a beautiful wedding day and to have all the amazing photos to look back on for the rest of our lives. Thank you HRM!

Heather + David
{Port Franks Wedding Photography}

Heather & Dave's wedding was so perfect! Their intimate ceremony with just immediate family was located at the Scout Camp in Port Franks, such a hidden gem for small weddings! Afterwards, we were able to explore the beautiful grounds for some photos with this fun loving couple! Even though it was a bit of a chilly day, Heather braved the cold to capture the stunning fall colours!

Laura + Patrick
{Ivey Spencer Center London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Laura and Patricks had a perfectly sweet and snowy wedding day! This lovely couple tied the knot at one of our favourite venues, Ivey Spencer. Braving the cold in her stunning tea-length dress, Laura absolutely rocked her elegant look! The love and happiness between her and Patrick was absolutely infectious.

Kelly + Paul
{Windermere Manor London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Kelly and Paul's wedding day was bursting with love from the very first moment we picked up our cameras! This amazing couple had a cute Sunday brunch wedding that included heart warming speeches from the couple and loved ones, to a fun lively mid-day dance floor with live band! Their daughter Grace was adorable and really was the star of the show! We truly loved everything about this day!!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Relaxed, Outdoor gathering with Family and Friends
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride:  My favourite part of the day was right before I walked down the aisle to Paul.  Standing there with my family and knowing that "THE" moment was finally here was an amazing experience.  I was so happy and couldn't wait to get started.
Groom: My favourite memory of the wedding was how intimate our vows were.  It felt like I was sharing my vows with only Kelly even though all of our friends and family were watching. 
Best wedding related decision: Deciding to marry eachother!!! LOL Is that a trick question ? The second best wedding related decision was choosing Windermere Manor to host our day.  They were incredibly helpful and made the planning process as stress-free as possible.
Favourite detail:  Everything was so perfect, its hard to choose but we really loved the wagon my mom had decorated for Grace.  It was so sweet, and looked great and Grace really loved her special ride.
Advice for future brides & grooms:  Try to relax and enjoy yourself - the day will go by so quickly.  Everyone tells you this, but its truly amazing how fast the whole day goes by.  And try not to sweat the small stuff, it ends up not being important in the big picture.   
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Not a thing! it was a great day
Best surprise of the day: 
Bride- For me it was how beautiful the weather was that day! We had been worried it would be rainy or cold and it was sunny, hot and beautiful
Groom- For me it was how comfortable and relaxed the day felt.  I was so much more relaxed than I thought I would be.

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): The photo of Grace, Paul and Kelly after the ceremony - just how happy the three of us look, a happy family and surrounded by all the love of our family and friends, we are all just glowing in this photo.  It captures what we wanted the essence of the ceremony to be about - us as a family.
