Kathryn + Josh

{London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Kathryn & Josh’s wedding will be a memorable one for me – this fun couple got married on the hottest day of the year! Despite the heat, we found some amazing urban spots downtown for their shoot and I feel in love with a green wall that made their wedding colours pop! My favourite detail was Kathryn’s beautiful brooch bouquet – it was absolutely stunning!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Personal, Elegant, Fun, Dance Party!

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Walking down the aisle to Josh with my dad and my favorite song. It was even more emotional than I expected.
Groom: The reception and celebrating a great day with Kat and all of our closest friends and family.

Best wedding related decision: Having a long engagement was great for us. We were able to enjoy planning the wedding without having to rush through decisions. It meant we could have DIY projects like the invites, favors, guest book tree, bridesmaids dresses and Kat’s veil.

Favourite detail: The guest book tree, made by Kat’s brother

Advice for future brides & grooms: Make your choices based on what makes you and your partner happy, don’t sweat the small things. During the craziness of planning remember that your wedding is a celebration of you and your partners love and bringing all your important people together to share in that

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I wish we had brought a snack and a lot of drinks for the photo session. It was a million degrees and I hadn’t eaten and started to wilt in the heat.

Best surprise of the day: The speeches from our friends and family were more heart felt and amazing then we could have expected

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): #516. We love the color and how it makes us pop out. And #577, its so romantic and elegant.
