Our fairy tale day

The theme of our wedding was classic elegance and the whole day was an absolute dream!

We styled everything using romantic tones of dusty pinks and rich purples, hints of silver and gold graced the tables and highlighted the finer details. Overall, everything had an antique-y feel. Memoire was the perfect venue and helped turn our dreams into a reality.

The day started early with bride and bridesmaids bustling around in the bridal suite, bursting into giggles when the boys arrived and rushing around to make sure bride and groom didn't catch a glimpse of each other before the ceremony.

The girls had a ball of a time trecking down to the magical forest-like area behind the chapel for photos before the ceremony. From some of the photos it looks like the boys had an equally fabulous time getting ready.

The ceremony itself was beautiful and there were certainly a few tears that had to be wiped away, both from the happy couple and guests.

Following the ceremony, family photos and photos of the bridal party and couple went quicker than you could blink. While waiting, guests were entertained with the melodic tones of a pianist and her beautiful voice (kindly provided by a family friend).

The reception was surreal, the food was from another world and everyone had the most amazing evening.

We danced the night away, like Cinderella at the ball - but as midnight chimed instead of the dream vanishing and everything coming to an end, it signaled the start of the rest of our lives.
