I love a good DIY wedding and Amy and Richard went all out with beautiful crafts and details to make their wedding unique. I must say that the surprise ambush ceremony on a bus was a challenge to photograph….but oh so fun and memorable! Amy and Richard met while working for VIVA transit and wanted to incorporate that into their big day.
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Fun, intimate, unique, eco-friendly.
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Seeing everyone’s reaction when we ambushed them!
Groom: Having two 60 ft buses down Main St. Unionville
Best wedding related decision: Taking on all the DIY projects, not only did we save tons of money, those items were also what made the day uniquely ours.
Favourite detail: The multicultural food. The frappaccino on the bus and the pop bottles during the photo session. The Ontario sparkling apple cider for the toast. And the Marble Slab station at the reception! Everybody loved them!
Advice for future brides & grooms: 1) Communicate with each other. Not knowing what is going on is the #1 stress inducer. 2) Don’t get too caught up with the details. Those who are truly your friends are there to celebrate your committment and love for each other, not the prime rib at the reception!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nothing at all!
Best surprise of the day: Our son, Nikolas, behaved very well throughout the day, especially during the ceremony.
Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): 327, 425, 429, 529 (So whimsical!), 555, 590
Anything else you’d like to add: Yes! – Lindsay, you are amazing!
