What a gorgeous wedding day Kelly and Daniel had! It was perfectly planned with the help of Blissful Weddings. Weddings at Fanshawe Pioneer Village are always some of our favorites - this was the first time we had done a tented wedding there, and the clear top one they had was soooo pretty! Kudos to North Moore Catering, Rossini Floral, Salon Entrenous and DJ Alpha for being part of our dream team for the day!

Cozy on up, this is going to be a long one!!! I just couldn't help myself with so many images because HOW CUTE ARE DANIELLE AND DARRYL!? I have known this adorable couple since they first started dating and was so thrilled when they asked me to photograph their big day. It was a fun filled day with so much laughter and happiness, I wish I could go back to it (especially on such a cold snowy day like today!) The details, which were for the most part a DIY effort by the bride and groom were all so sweet, and their "high tea" theme was my favorite! 

- Heather

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Alice in Wonderland, vintage, historic, rustic

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Our first dance.  It was fun and goofy and very "us".
Groom: Our first dance.  All eyes were on us.

Best wedding related decision: Hiring Heather!

Favourite detail: Groomsmen's bowties (handmade by the bride) and the Bride's vintage gloves.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Get a wedding coordinator, even if it's just a friend....and make sure they are assertive and pushy!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We would have employed a wedding coordinator for the day to go more smoothly.  AND we would eat more food!

Best surprise of the day: Our nephew Ian - he surprised us with his energy and flare on the dance floor.  Life of the party and so cute to watch!  Plus, he had a special surprise for the bride and asked to slow dance. 

Anything else you'd like to add: We were so happy with our choice to do PAD THAI for our late night buffet - it was such a hit.  The food in general was excellent.  We are so happy with how everything worked out and how our little details were noticed and appreciated by our guests (ie. colouring books, tea cups favours, etc.)

Megan & Marco are such a sweet couple! I enjoyed every second of their wedding day! So many emotions and so much love! Megan has such a strong bond with her family  - her twin sister & mom and the getting ready photos show that bond so well! Megan & Marco knew they would be embarking on a new adventure in Scotland a few month after the wedding so it was an emotional day knowing Megan would be leaving her family. Love the little moments she had with her nana after the cerermony, so sweet! Marco also had his mom, uncle & aunt travel all the way from Italy to attend this beautiful event! The cutest thing was the old school popcorn maker on site for guest to enjoy between ceremony & reception!

We always love running into past HRM wedding couples! Colleen and Brad are the sweetest!

Lisa + Steve
{Fanshawe Pioneer Village Wedding Photography}

Lisa and Steve had a gorgeous summer wedding at Fanshawe Pioneer Village, one of my favorite spots for wedding photography in London Ontario! These two are so much fun to be around, as were their wedding party! It was a party from start to finish! The DIY decor at the reception was incredible - I was blown away by the details! Thanks so much for having us be a part of your big day Lisa & Steve - we loved it!

- Heather

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: fun - vintage - crafty

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride:  walking down the isle with my parents towards Steve
Groom:  seeing Lisa walk towards me in her beautiful dress

Best wedding related decision: Having a traditional style wedding so that all of our family could attend!

Favourite detail: wedding favours - homemade dill pickles

Advice for future brides & grooms: Keep your eye on the prize - it's about saying "I DO" - everything else is just icing on the cake - or cupcakes in our case

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Change my dress at the reception for something that I could have danced salsa with my new husband more easily

Best surprise of the day: Steve's homage to Magic Mike garter dance - people are still talking about it

Anything else you'd like to add: We were so lucky to have had such a beautiful day!  Thanks so much Heather and Jen for capturing all the special moments of that day.  You guys were awesome!

wedding party at fanshawe pioneer village

Leading up to Shellby & Matt's wedding we were keeping an eye on the weather, it was supposed to rain all day! However we ended having absolutely perfect weather and they had the beautiful outdoor ceremony they dreamed of at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. I loved how Shellby & Matt included their dog Milo in their day, all the way up until the end of the night! The rain finally did arrived after dinner., which was perfect timing if I say so! Congrat Shelby & Matt, thanks for having us be a part of your awesome day!

Bride: Being able to include my dog, Milo in the wedding ceremony and reception.
Groom: Seeing all of our guests celebrate with us and having a great time.

Best wedding related decision: Not stressing out too much over the day and letting things just happen whether it was suppose to or not!

Favourite detail: antique items from the brides Grandparents

Advice for future brides & grooms: Relax and have fun, there is no need to get to stressed out.

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

Best surprise of the day: The weather working in our favour, it was supposed to rain all day!

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): There were so many great ones to choose from! If we have to choose just one we would go with the night shots by the John Deere tractor. It's creative and reflects our fun atmosphere.
