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

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: It is hard to pick favourites, the whole day was amazing. I loved getting ready with the girls in the morning, and seeing Jason as I walked toward him down the isle. I also loved how our officiant shared the things we love about each other in our ceremony, It made it feel much more personal.
Groom: The whole day was perfect, from the weather to the setup and atmosphere. Dana was stunning as always ... I tried my best to compete, but I was no match. The speeches, ceremony, and party had a good amount of "funny" mixed with the love. Tough to pick a top moment because it was all so great.

Best wedding related decision: Hiring the perfect team of vendors. Our venue was stunning and our day wouldn't have been the same without HRM. Heather kept our day on track and captured it more beautifully than we could have imagined.

Favourite detail: We loved the mirrored seating chart and welcome sign as it was something we worked on together before the wedding with the help of Jason's mom.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Finish writing your speech before 2 am the night before the wedding haha. In all seriousness just try and take in every moment of the day, it honestly goes by so quickly. We went out to take some night time photos with HRM and it was the perfect moment to be alone with Jason to unwind and take in the whole day together.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? The day was pretty perfect, the only regret I have is not being able to finish my meal and not eating the late night poutine haha. The adrenaline really affected our appetites.

Best surprise of the day: We loved all of the speeches, everyone was so well spoken and it was so great to share old stories. My parent's even played a song I recorded when I was 17 which Jason and I danced to.

Olivia had a vision for her wedding, and it was definitely achieved! Divine Wedding Design did the most spectacular job with the decor making this bride's dreams come true (and making our job very easy)!

Julia + Chad
{Bellamere Winery London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Julia & Chad's wedding was absolutely picture perfect!!! You really can't go wrong with a wedding at Bellamere Winery! We had such a wonderful time capturing this couple's beautiful day! 

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

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

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day? 
Bride: Chad and I wrote letters to one another to read the morning of our wedding and having that moment of reading what he wrote was a unforgettable moment and made me even more excited to walk down the isle and see Chad for the first time. Also being able to celebrate the day with close friends and family. 
Groom: Seeing Julia walk down the aisle. I did not know what she had chosen for a wedding dress and she was absolutely beautiful. Made me feel like the luckiest person in the room. 

Best wedding related decision: Choosing Bellamere (They took care of almost everything for us, so we did not feel stress on the wedding day). They thought of things that we didn't even think of, and went above and beyond to help make the day perfect and for us to be able to enjoy and celebrate with our family and friends.

Favourite detail: Centre pieces with the floral arrangements. Not many people would know this but the reason there was a tea cup added to the centre pieces was to represent Julia's grandmother.  Her Grandma had recently passed and it was a small detail to make Julia feel like her grandma was still present.  Also Julia had worn her grandmothers ring, which was also her something old and blue. The entire atmosphere and look of Bellamere is also a key reason on why we chose to get married there. 

Advice for future brides & grooms: Do what you have envisioned for your day and do what is most important to the two of you.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? No

Best surprise of the day: Having everything run so smoothly. You always get told that something may not go exactly the way you pictured it, but our day was perfect. 

Anything else you'd like to add: Thank you to HRM Photography, especially Heather and Becky. They did an amazing job. We had so much fun doing all of our pictures and you can really tell how passionate and excited they were to capture special moments of our day.

Nancy + Rick
{Bellamere Winery London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Nancy & Rick are a beautiful couple inside & out and I loved getting to know them leading up to and at their wedding! There were so many smiles all day long, every minute was just a dream! 

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: rustic setting with elegant accents 

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: seeing the smile on Rick's face as I was walking down the aisle. It was the best feeling in the world knowing I was about to marry my best friend.   
Groom: the look on my wife's face when Samantha (her bridesmaid from England who couldn't make the wedding) Skyped in during the reception. 

Best wedding related decision: getting married at Bellamere (who made the whole wedding planning process so fun and stress free) and hiring Rossini Floral to do our decor and flowers 

Favourite detail: the gorgeous flower arch over the head table created by Rossini Floral 

Advice for future brides & grooms: don't sweat the small things and just think about the big picture. The day goes by in the blink of an eye so don't forget to stop and take a moment to take in everything that is your wedding day!  

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nothing, the day couldn't have been more perfect

Best surprise of the day: How smoothly everything went. Not one thing went wrong! The weather was perfect, everything was on time, and not once did we get nervous or anxious. It was the most perfect day Rick and I could ever ask for. 

Anything else you'd like to add: We decided to have an ice cream bar at our reception by Marble Slab Creamery. It was a place where the groom had worked for ten years prior to starting his career. The heat of the day coupled with the uniqueness and popularity of Marble Slab made it a huge hit for the guests to pas the time as the wedding couple was out doing photos.
