Stephanie & Dave are a beautiful couple inside & out and from the first time I met with them I knew I’d have a great time with them on their wedding day. Everything was so elegant, yet laidback and fun. I had a smilie on my face the whole time we were putting this blog post together remembering what a great day it was!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Elegant,classic, fun, family and friends
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: There’s too many to count! Some of my favourites would have to walking into the church and seeing Dave and all our family and friends, the ring ceremony (the ring wouldn’t go on my finger!) and dancing at the reception, we had such a great time!
Groom: Seeing Stephanie walk into the church
Best wedding related decision: I would have to say that hiring Russell as our decorator was our best decision. It was amazing to not have to worry about setting up of taking down the hall the day of the wedding, with Russell we knew everything was taken care of!
Favourite detail: Our bouquets! I absolutely loved the girls orange cali lilies and my beautiful white bouquet! They were everything I had imagined!
Advice for future brides & grooms: I would have to say to not sweat the small stuff and make sure to have fun at your own wedding!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? – It was really hot that day, around 38! we would have loved if the church was air conditioned!
Best surprise of the day: I would have to say the craziest surprise of the day was the group of Asian tourist who crashed our wedding!
Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): There’s too many to choose from! We love all of the family pictures in front of the church, we will always cherish those! But we love #769 in the woods at sunset of the two of us, it is such a beautiful picture!
