Cultures and traditions are such an important and beautiful part of every wedding day. And throughout the weddings we have been lucky enough to be a part of we have seen a lot of different approaches and takes on North American traditions. But what I really love is seeing different traditions and cultures mixed into one truly memorable day, and that is exactly what Juliet + Blake had planned for their wedding. From Juliet’s accessories right up to their traditional dances during the reception it was so great to see the mix from both Canada and the Philippines.
Colour can have a pretty big impact on your wedding day. Your chosen colour is typically part of your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, stationary, and general decor. But picking a colour (or a couple colours) to match your personalities and represent your day can be difficult, especially if you are one of those people who doesn’t have one specific colour as your favourite. But picking one colour, or even two, was not what Juliet + Blake had in mind for their day, and I am oh so glad they went in such a vibrant direction!
I really love small weddings. Don’t get me wrong, big weddings can be super fun and full of fantastic shenanigans, but small weddings have an atmosphere that just can’t be beat. So when Meaghan + John mentioned that they were having a small midday wedding, I was super excited!
I always forget how lovely Brockville is. I grew up nearby and spent a lot of my teens years driving around the town aimlessly, walking the mall (there was only really one shopping centre then) and really just wanting to find entertainment really anywhere else.
It was shortly after I got my driver’s license that I realized just how small a town I lived in. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great place to grow up and is still a wonderful town, but as a teenager, it was small, very small. There wasn’t much to do during the evenings where my friends and I managed to tear ourselves away from whatever basement we were watching movies in, we would end up driving around more or less aimlessly. We would often end up driving near the waterfront in Brockville and then either driving or walking along the Boardwalk. I am not sure why we always ended up there, but we did. So when Jenn + Donny mentioned Hardy Park for their engagement session I was definitely up for it!
