I always love weddings at Museum London and had a great time with Laura, Johannes and their wedding party on this hot August day! The groom & groomsmen looked great in their Navy uniforms!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: elegant, timeless, fun
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: It was such a great day but I think that being able to celebrate with my 90 year old Grandmother was definitely a highlight for me. Of course, celebrating with all of my family and friends was also fantastic!
Groom: Seeing Laura for the first time and having that moment all to ourselves. Being able to celebrate with my friends who came from all over Canada just for the weekend.
Best wedding related decision: Having Hannes and his groomsmen in their Navy uniforms. Also, incorporating some Naval wedding traditions for example, the Sword Arch. This really made for something new and exciting for us as well as for our guests.
Favourite detail: Having the photo booth was my favorite thing! I think that I went in around 30 times with someone different every single time.
Advice for future brides & grooms: Try to relax and really enjoy the day. It goes by so quickly so make sure that you are taking the time to appreciate all of your hard work!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? There isn’t really anything that we would do differently. We had beautiful weather, everyone was in great spirits, and every detail really came together for such a wonderful day.
Best surprise of the day: All of the speeches were such a great surprise! They were so well written and were all so heartfelt, sincere, and incredibly funny. We really appreciated the work that went into them and all of their kind words are definitely unforgettable.
Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): The group shot of everyone in the museum after the ceremony is definitely a favorite. I just really wanted to be able to capture the moment of everyone being there to celebrate with us. I’m glad we were able to fit everyone in! But to be honest, there are so many amazing pictures it’s hard to pick just one that was our favorite.
Anything else you’d like to add: Our day couldn’t have been possible without all of our amazing vendors. We want to give a huge thank you and shout out to Russel Rossini. He really went over and above our expectations and really was a dream to work with. Nicole, from Auberge du Petit Prince, did an absolutely amazing job with both cakes and really captured exactly what we were looking for. Of course, we cannot forget our amazing photographers Heather and Niki. You ladies were so much fun and really kept us on schedule and even made us look great in the pictures! Thanks to everyone who made our day everything that we wanted and more!!
