Memories of the day…: “Memories … where to start!! Hands down, our day was better than I anticipated it to ever be; everything was perfect! From our absolutely AMAZING photographers (and friends) to our superb vendors and our FANTASTIC wedding party, we couldn’t have asked for a better day :)”
Did you have a “theme”?: Our theme was Modern Vintage with a Scottish Twist!
Recommended Vendor: Old Gardens Flower Shop – “I LOVED our flowers! I decided to go with “Fresh-like” fake flowers instead of real ones and I’m so glad we did! Not only did we have amazing colours and textures, we didn’t have to worry about them wilting or needing water all day AND we get to keep them forever! Amazing!”
Recommended Vendor: The London Club – “This was the perfect place for our reception – we had plated service, with the guests choice of main entree, plus a cocktail hour and open bar for less than any of the other local vendors we contacted for our big day! It was also fantastic because we were the only event happening there that day! No sharing! LOL”
Recommended Vendor: Royal Creations Decor – “We weren’t sure about hiring a decorator, but this one was recommended to us and we’re so glad we hired her to do the job! She was fantastic to work with and reasonably priced! She went above and beyond our expectations :)”
Recommended Vendor: Renaissance Studios Photography – “…and last but definitely not least, our photographers. BEYOND AMAZING!!!!!!!”
Anything else you’d like to add?: “Our ceremony was at the Old St. Thomas Church in St. Thomas, Ontario. It was built in 1824 and in 1982 it was recognized as an Ontario Heritage Site. It’s small, quaint, unique and right up our alley! Our reception was at The London Club, London, Ontario. It’s a classy, upscale, private club and is a large mansion that was built in 1881.
With our appreciation of history and the importance of treasuring the past, holding the biggest parts of our wedding day at these classic venues was perfect! And driving away from the church in the Father-of-the-Groom’s classic 1955 Chevy pickup wasn’t be too shabby either ;)”
