Rebecca & Matt

{Stoney Creek Baptist Church London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Rebecca and Matt are a really sweet couple and we had a lot of fun with them on their wedding day – even when there was a total downpour in the middle of our photo session!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Elegant, classic, intimate, fun.

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: From the day I Bought my wedding dress, right up to the day before the wedding, I would randomly say to matt – in excited anticipation – “I can’t wait for you to see me in my wedding dress!” So, as I am watching my bridesmaids walking down the aisle, my moment was here and I could hardly wait to come into view. It was the most special moment walking down the aisle. Seeing Matt standing there waiting for me and the look on his face. Knowing that we are about to declare our love for God, and each other in front off all our family and friends.
Groom: Seeing Becca for the first time as she came down the aisle. And being able to let loose with all our friends at the end of the night with some great dancing.

Best wedding related decision: Our venue! Having the Estate all to ourselves just added to the intimate feeling that we really wanted. It was such a picturesque location.

Favourite detail: My veil. My mother made it so it had a lot of sentimental value.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Have a long engagement! lol Matt and I had two years to plan, and it saved us so much stress! Having that much time also allowed us to do most of the planning ourselves. It made for many special moments with family and friends, and gave us great memories that made the whole wedding experience so enjoyable.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? nothing! the day was perfect! smile

Best surprise of the day:
Bride:
My amazing brother and sister-in-law following Matt and I around all day with the video camera. They captured so many moments that we would have otherwise forgotten, if it were not for them. There is an amazing picture that Alison took of my brother where he is sitting at the base of the stairs, video camera ready, waiting for me to come back down.

Groom: I wouldn’t say it was the “best” surprise but, it would have to be how hot it got that day! Even though it was unbearable at times, I wouldn’t have changed it for anything! We also did get a 5 minute down pour when we were having photos taken at the golf course. That was the one time I have seen Becca run that fast! In her dress and heels too no less!

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?):

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?):
Bride:
The photo taken of Matt and I through an iron gate that has heart shaped detailing. It’s so creative and completely captures the feeling of our wedding day.
