Karen & Matthew

The Great Hall Wedding

The Great Hall at UWO is the perfect spot for a classic & elegant wedding! We loved being a part of Karen & Matthew’s beautiful fall wedding – congrats to them!

– Heather

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less:
Traditional but fun.

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Dancing with Matthew at the reception.
Groom: Seeing Karen walk down the aisle with her parents.

Best wedding related decision:
Keeping the wedding party small (just those who mean the most to us).

Favourite detail: The tables…our centrepieces and guest favours (candy apples)

Advice for future brides & grooms : Things will go wrong, but don’t worry about them. No one knows what you chose for your day, and even if they do, you invited them because they mean something to you and they won’t care as long as you are happy.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Skip the limo.

Best surprise of the day: Karen: My dad giving me a gift from Matthew when I woke up that morning.

Anything else you’d like to add: We would like to thank Heather for all she did for us that day! She was fantastic, the pictures are amazing and  we were so lucky to have her capture our wedding grin
