Amanda and Craig are such wonderfully kind hearted people… this certainly wasn’t an easy day for me to photograph, my mom passed away less than 48 hours before this wedding. To me, cancelling a wedding just isn’t an option. And knowing that I’d be spending the day with such a great couple gave me something happy to think about during a really terrible time. I love that we went to Food Basics (where they met) for so many fun photos! Thank you so much Amanda and Craig for being so empathetic and for making me smile when it was so hard to!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: FUN and fresh!
What are you favourite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Seeing Craig for the first time during our First Look. It was so intimate and special, where it felt like there was no one else in the world but us.
Groom: The anticipation of seeing my bride for our First Look and turning around to see how beautiful she was.
Best wedding related decision: Too many to name! Having everything in one location, doing a First Look (and having many pictures done before the ceremony), having a sweetheart table instead of a head table, and without a doubt, choosing HRM to be a part of our big day with PHOTOBOOTH!!
Favourite details: The Dress, Golf Kissing Game, Photobooth, getting pictures done at Food Basics (where we met)
Advice for future brides & grooms: Have the attitude that it will be the best day ever and it will be. You are marrying the love of your life and everything will be “perfect” because of that. Don’t let anything silly ruin your day…like the weather (some of our best photos were created in the rain!!)
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? No, it was just perfect.
Best surprise of the day: Music Central doing the group dance game…it got EVERYONE on the dance floor and it was so fun!
Favourite HRM picture from the day (and why?): We could name SO many…but the rain pictures definitely are amazing! Not everyone can say that they had that beauty on their wedding day! # 288 #753. The Food Basics ones are sweet too.
Anything else you’d like to add: Have fun because it will be over before you know it!
