Many couples infuse unique details that represent who they are as a couple but aside from Angela & Neil's Wedding…I don't think I will ever see the amazing combination of Happy Meals, live music from the Great Canadian Nobodies (featuring my handsome hubby), light up stripper heels, matching hot dog tattoos, a cow themed wedding cake and Doritos. Well done guys!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: School, fun, simple, winter and US!
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day? Bride: bird seed hail storm!
Favourite detail: old school lunch boxes filled with flowers for our centerpieces. Keeping with the schoolhouse theme!
Advice for future brides & grooms: don't stress the small stuff, enjoy every second of your day… it goes by in a flash!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? maybe a smaller venue or less guests…. not that I didn't love everyone who attended… it was just a little overwhelming!
Best surprise of the day: Justin Bieber done bluegrass style!
Anything else you'd like to add: I could not be happier with Lindsay as our photographer. I hardly noticed she was there taking pictures all day and night… the pictures are so wonderful and honest.
