ARP-JJ10intro{reality wedding} Timeless, glam and all about family in Port Elgin | Jenny & Jacob

Photography: Alicia Riley Photography (review) | Story by The Wedding Ring

For Jenny and Jacob, their wedding day was all about family. Jenny explains, "So much about our wedding revolved around how important our large families are to us. We chose Port Elgin as the location, because of the proximity to our families, who live in that area. We wanted to be married in the Catholic church, because it was the faith of our families. We wanted our venues to accommodate a large enough group to ensure we could have as much of our families attend as possible. It was a common theme as we made decisions and planned the wedding, that this be a celebration not just for us, but for all of our loved ones."

Becky and Daniel knew they wanted to spend their wedding day surrounded by friends, family, sand and sun. They choose Sandals in Montego Bay for its stunning backdrop and ease of planning. Becky remembers, "It is just so beautiful… it was something you only see in the movies. And the fact that we could spend the once in a life time experience with our closest family and friends was much better than being in a banquet hall surround by a lot of distant faces!"

RibbonsRuinsintro2{feature} Fashion & Design Inspiration: Ribbons & Ruins

Photographers: Anne Edgar Photography (review), Lyn Ismael: Evocative Imagery of Love Stories (review), Vision Photography, CGE Photography, Ten•2•Ten Photography | Story by Anne Edgar of Anne Edgar Photography

What bride out there wouldn’t want to get all dressed up in her dress again and have a little more fun? At least that’s what we hoped. So one day Anne (one of our photographers) set out to find this bride. Several queries were sent out, and to our surprise - everyone asked said YES! They all wanted to jump right back in their dresses! The idea of choosing just one... well it was tough. But after a difficult selection process, we ended up with not one bride, but 5. So how’s this for a great inspirational shoot (not to mention awesome idea), five models, five photographers, and five vignettes all in one super cool location..

WhitneyHeard-Courtneyintro{reality wedding} Rustic, intimate and DYI at Cambridge Mill | Alison & Michael

Photography: Whitney Heard Photography | Story by The Wedding Ring

Alison and Michael wanted a small, intimate wedding day shared with their closest family and friends. Alison remembers, "Everything from number of guests to the venue to the non-traditional way we went about the engagement and the wedding meant that it was totally 'us'. Having a quick wedding forced us to focus on what was important to us and not get lost in all of the details. And all of the work we put in to the planning process allowed us to just enjoy our day and see everything all come together with the help of the staff at the Mill."

SIP TMintro{reality wedding} A celebration of family, friends and love at The Pines in Cambridge | Trudy & Matt 

Photography: Spirits Intrigued Photography (review) | Story by The Wedding Ring

Trudy and Matt's wedding day was all about celebrating with their loved ones. Trudy explains, "Our family and friends are so important to us. They support you, encourage you, have fun with you, love you, all that good stuff. They deserved to live it up- be well fed, well hydrated, and have the opportunity to dance up a storm if they want to!" The couple chose The Pines as their venue for its atmosphere, price, past reviews and all-in-one location and a palette of navy blue and pink for a classic elegant look." To me those colours are a classic combination that will never go out of style. We wanted to look back at our pictures 60 years from now and still like what we chose."
WR: Tell me about the proposal.

Jenn-JohnRW-jvgphotography-intro{reality wedding} Romantic Whimsy at Piper's Heath Golf Club | Jennifer & John

Photography: Jayme Van Geest Photography | Story by The Wedding Ring

Jennifer and John wanted a soft, romantic and whimsical feel for their wedding day and chose a palette of soft pinks, creams and greens to perfectly complement their vision. Jennifer ads, "We tried not to get too carried away with a specific theme for the day, but rather be guided by décor and DIY projects we knew we liked the look of, without having to worry if it fit into a specific theme. I think the day really represented us as a couple and gave people that relaxed feel we wanted." Jennifer and John's wedding day was about fun, laughter and showing their guests a fabulous time. "I think our guests really appreciated the laid back, comfortable feel of our wedding – as well as the awesome dance party that followed dinner!"
