Sarah + Nick

{Benmiller Inn Goderich Ontario Wedding Photography}

Fall 2017 truly was crazy warm one! Sarah and Nick had another one of the hottest days of the year for their wedding, but that didn’t stop us from exploring every inch of the stunning grounds at the Benmiller Inn. We had such a blast spending the day with this super fun couple and their wedding party! It was such a joy to get to document the love between these two on their special day!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Rustic chic, beautiful and comfortable

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Everyone I love being in one place, and my first dance with my husband.
Groom: Watching the bride come down the aisle.

Best wedding related decision: Literally having Niki Patel as our photographer (other than marrying each other) and also the midnight snack( mini breakfast sandwich sliders and pancakes on a stick)

Favourite detail: Our vows that we wrote to one another. They were beautiful and sincere, and added a little extra magic.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Don’t take the process of planning a wedding too seriously and don’t worry about every little thing going wrong. I worried so much I almost forgot to enjoy it. I thought for sure something terrible would happen, but then the day was literal perfection.
Other couples who also gave me this same advice, take some time, even if it is just minutes, take your significant other and just have a private moment. The day will go by so fast and those little moments where you can just stop to appreciate one another will mean the most.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? The weather!! Haha it was October but 28 degrees outside, I was not prepared to wear my beautiful(but heavy) dress in that heat. Wished for the cold and never got it! Maybe the planning process and having more help then just doing it ourselves.

Best surprise of the day: My husbands vows. They were magical. And my bridesmaids speeches, who knew they could be so eloquent!

Anything else you’d like to add: I felt so prepared filling out all of the questionnaires for our photographer Niki ahead of time, and we worked extremely well together so that I was able to capture all the moments with my extremely large and somewhat difficult families. It worked out so well!
