This post is long over due but I still remember it like it was yesterday. The week leading up to the wedding was a mixed bag of emotions. I felt everything from excitement, nerves, good laughs and even a little stress, but most of all, I felt a lot of love. The support of our family and friends (and of course, my then fiancé) made everything leading up to the big day a breeze.
One of my favourite moments of the day was walking down the aisle with my dad. I was ear-to-ear with smiles and at the same time trying to fight back the tears as I saw Mike standing at the alter.
Following the ceremony, we took pictures at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives. This was definitely a last minute decision and probably my best one yet. This former courthouse converted jail is now home to an art museum. It is the perfect location to get both indoor and outdoor shots. It also has that awesome vintage vibe I love so much.
My wedding dress hunt was a long one. I tried on so many gowns all shapes and styles. I was instantly drawn to this Pronovias lace gown. With a little altering, I was able to add this amazing detachable tulle train I found off another dress. The cathedral veil was my mother’s and also my something “old”.
My bridesmaids wore champagne sequin dresses from BCBG. All equipped with a blush pink sash and a sexy slit down the side of their dresses, they looked absolutely stunning!
For my reception I was trying to achieve a romantic setting. The hall was decorated with lace linens, white draping, a head table covered in a tulle skirt and flower centerpieces with pearls.
Every time I look through our wedding photos, I have a chance to relive the happiest day of our lives. I cannot express how thankful we are to everyone who made this day the most beautiful day of our lives!
