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

Kelsey + Sean
{London Hilton Wedding Photography}

When Kelsey contacted me to photograph her wedding I was thrilled! I used to work with Kelsey at American Eagle many years ago and seeing some familiar faces was a great treat!

They had a chilly fall wedding in October, with flurries in the morning but by the time their ceremony started the flurries stopped and the sun peeked out! They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Mary's followed by family photos on the front steps. We then found some beautiful colour fall colours at Gibbons Park, exactly what Kelsey was looking for! After a quick stop downtown for some urban shots we headed to the Hilton for their reception. My favourite memory is the best man's speech, at the end he took his shirt off and had Kelsey and Sean's initials shaved into his chest hair - hilarious! Congrats Kelsey and Sean, I loved being a part of your day, it was perfect!

Ashley + Andrew
Old Courthouse Wedding Photography

London wedding photography couple beautiful light

I met Andrew & Ashley at Andrew's brother's Doug's wedding a year prior and was so happy to photography this awesome family again! Ashley was glowing all day, she looked simply stunning! Andrew and Ashley said their I do's outside of the Old Courthouse on a beautiful summer afternoon in front of their family and friends! I loved sneaking the couple out at their reception for some extra shots during what we photographers like to call the magic hour, that glow was just perfect! Their reception was so much fun, you can leave it to Andrew's brothers to have the guests falling out of their seats with laughter from their hilarous stories! Congrats Andrew & Ashley, it was a pleasure to photograph your day!

Xin + Shaonan
Museum London Wedding Photography

What a fun wedding day! We started first thing in the morning with some traditional Chinese games where the Groom and his groomsmen have to go through a series of tests to get to the bride! The bridesmaid definitely came up with some fun ideas that had me in tears of laughter! We had a great time with Xin and Shaonan, photographing their fun loving wedding party from the beginning of the day right down to the end! I especially loved the light that we had at the Fork of the Thames for the bride and groom session - it was simply stunning and perfect! Thanks for having us capture your big day Xin and Shaonan, a big congrats!
