Latte-JM-intro{reality wedding} Old world elegance at Hacienda Sarria| Jennevie & Marek

Photography: Latte Productions Wedding Photography (review) | Story by The Wedding Ring

"I came across Hacienda by pure luck. I read an article in The Record about an artist who was creating a large Don Quixote statue on the premise. I had no idea where or what this place was used for but Don Quixote was one of my favorite stories as a child, so I was going to see if I could take a picture with the statue. It wasn't until Marek and I goggled the venue for directions that we realized it was a wedding venue with an old antique flare that was very much our style (so close it almost looked like our home!). We always joked that the patron of the venue, Don Quixote was our foreseen future in old age. That at least one of us would become so completely immersed in our books that the lines between reality and fiction would be blurred which is why this place meant so much to us." Jennevie

SEPTEMBER 14TH, 2014, Hampton Inn & Suites, Brantford | One of the biggest factors that help make The Ring's Bridal Expo events stand out is our exhibitors willingness to jump in with both feet and participate in every element of the day.

Particularly, this participation includes the talented decorators who work throughout the night to create Live Design Palettes, on-site displays of various wedding designs, themes that couples can snap photos of, instagram, pin, facebook, tweet and more, for use in planning their weddings.

At The Ring's Brantford expo this fall, we were extraordinarily lucky to have the inspiration and help of local decorators Now & Always Wedding Decorating, High Gloss Weddings, Creative Country Designs, and Day to Remember Event Decor.

2. Home for a Rest ~ Spirit of the West ~ This song was out in High School for many guests attending weddings, and this is why reminiscing while swinging a complete stranger around on the dance floor is so appealing to many...

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..
