Carly & Neil had the perfect outdoor ceremony at the beautiful Elmhurst Inn! We had so much fun capturing their gorgeous wedding day.... and absolutely loved the amazing band that had everyone (including their Irish priest!) busting moves on the dance floor!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less:
Fun, Relaxed, Personal, Romantic and Creative
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Reading the notes we wrote to each other the morning of the wedding, having my best friend officiate the ceremony, Seeing all our friends and family mingling and having such an amazing time.
Groom: Seeing Carly in her wedding dress, Seeing all our friends and family together, the food and the band.
Best wedding related decision: We were tossing between the idea of having the wedding in Canada or in Ireland (where we're living.) We are so happy we decided on Canada as we couldn't imagine a more perfect day and everyone that travelled over from Ireland had an absolute ball.
Favourite detail: Having the ceremony outdoors.
Advice for future brides & grooms: Make sure to take time to yourselves and soak it all in- the day flies!!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Not a thing - everything was so perfect.
Best surprise of the day: Carly's sisters wrote a song and performed it.. it was very funny and completely unexpected.
