Tell us about the planning process! was there anything you were worried wouldn’t work, but turned out awesome?
Planning was awesome, we had our entire wedding planned within a month and everything booked. I think it helped to have everything done early so that our day was perfect. We married 6 months after our engagement and our wedding day was absolutely amazing!

Vendor shoutouts – what vendors made your day awesome?
Just wanted to give a shoutout to everyone who made our day amazing!!!!

Photography: Sharyar Memon of Box Cube Photography – His package/pricing was amazing! He worked within our budget, his photos were beautiful and he captured everything! Do NOT cheap out on a photographer we made that mistake before choosing him and we are so grateful we decided to hire a true professional! You can see by his photos the he’s not just a photographer he’s an artist!

Venue: Estelle Millaud at the Radisson Convention Centre – We can not thank them enough for all their dedication and hard work on our special day! We were treated like queens, we used them for our reception and ceremony. We didn’t have to worry about anything! They decorated, catered, set up and took down! They were truly an amazing venue and very reasonable in price. Our guests stated that “it was the best food ever tasted at a wedding.” All the staff went the extra mile to make sure our day was perfect including the manager!! He came to check just to make sure our day was going perfect.

DJ: Murray Robert Taylor – He was amazing played beautiful music during dinner and had fun after dinner. We did not have an MC so he MCed for us.

Officiant: Tammy of Meaningful Ceremonies – Absolutely amazing, I can not say enough good things about her, she made us calm, laughed with us and married us! She was spectacular.

Cake: Cake Couture – We had a beautiful carrot cake with buttercream icing and cream cheese filling! It was so delicious and made according to our photo we showed them, as well as in our budget.

Musician: Jennifer Oosterhoff – We chose her to sing a song very dear to our hearts – “Kiss me” by Sarah Phillips. Jennifer & Morgan took time out of their day to make ours just a bit more special by singing this song while we walked down the aisle. Her voice is truly beautiful!!

I know this is a lot but if it could help any other couples day go perfect as ours was it was worth it 🙂
