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

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: A surprise gift from my soon to be groom wrapped in a really pretty box waiting for me when I arrived for hair and makeup and  taking a minute before walking down the aisle for a quick look around at my handsome groom and a room full of all my favourite people in the world!  The day goes by so fast so I'm glad I stopped for a minute to take it all in.  I'll also always remember the wild fascinator my maid of honour wore during her speech in honour of my mom who passed away and loved all hats.
Groom: Seeing my lovely bride for the first time that day at the aisle.  Took my breath away.

Best wedding related decision: Our wonderful Venue and of course HRM! And can't leave out our M.C., she did an amazing job!

Favourite detail: String Quartet

Advice for future brides & grooms: A wedding planner is not the same as a wedding coordinator provided by the venue and is not as costly as you might think; It's a must in our opinion! Do your research and choose the one that suits your personalities best. Our wedding day was stress-free with everything running smoothly thanks to our planner!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nope!

Best surprise of the day:  All the work and preparation that went into speeches by our family and bridal party, complete with props!

Jenna + Scott
{Timmins Ontario Wedding Photography}

It's not every day we travel to Timmins, Ontario for wedding! But when this inquiry came in I was all over it! We made a trip of it and it was such a fantastic wedding! I love shooting in an unfamiliar town town, so much fresh scenery, especially up north! Jenna and Scott had the most perfect weather and we found the perfect location for their photos! Hersey Lake had a forest and a beautiful view of the lake! Congrats Jenna and Scott, we had such a great time in Timmins!

Chantel + Jason
{London Ontario Wedding Photography}

This day....was perfect! From the getting ready all the way to the fun dancing! I think everyone should have a live band - it brings such a different element to the reception! Chantel and Jason were so fun and easy going and their wedding party were a blast! I suprised the bride and groom with a collage of photos of the wedding party while they were getting some shots with the videographer. I loved that there was a soccer field behind the Portugese Club - we took advantage of that for their night shot since Portugal had just won the world cup a week prior and the groom is a HUGE soccer fan! Congrats to the lovely couple!!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Elegant, Intimate, Fun

What are your favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride:
 Stepping into my gown, walking down the isle, and having a great time with family and friends. 

Groom: Seeing my wife walk down towards me in her beautiful gown, hearing the priest say you are now husband and wife, and spending the most important day with family and friends.

Best wedding related decision: We’ve got many but a few to list are; booking our photographer, videographer and professional decorator, and deciding on a band for our reception.

Favourite detail: We loved it all. What we loved the most was the floral arrangements/centrepieces(the orchids), we had a few hollow square table designs that sat 12 guests, I was able to sit all our friends together. To this day I still get compliments from the Portuguese community that had never seen it before. 
We also had a table with photos of our guardian angels. That meant a lot to us and our families.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Enjoy the planning and most importantly the big day because in one blink the night is over. I suggest paying a good buck for a photographer and videographer because they really do capture the day and allow you to relive that moment all over again and again for the rest of your life. 

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I wouldn’t change a thing!! It was all meant to be

Best surprise of the day: Seeing our finalized reception decor that we fell in love with, and our letters to one another that were delivered while we were getting ready
