“Andres and I met in acting school. I was a student and he was my camera teacher!
Unfortunately, it’s not as scandalous as it sounds (we didn’t get together until after I graduated), but I remember thinking the moment I saw him that he would be someone who would be in my life.
We both courted each other for what felt like forever without giving away how we felt, all through our mutual love of art and imaginary worlds. When we finally did confess our mutual love, yes, love! We felt it so fast! It felt like a true fairy tale. Getting married was an exciting step in our story; I still can’t believe it!” – B
Photographer: HRM Photography “We chose them because, after looking through so many photographer websites, we really loved how their photos were outside the box and showcased the personalities of all the wedding parties. It was an easy decision! They were beautiful people to work with. Even outside the photos, they would check in to see if I needed anything. It was really touching.
I never knew what to do in photos, but they made us laugh and posed us so well that it was a seamless shoot! They also asked all the questions we didn’t even know we needed to consider, so they came so prepared, which made everything go flawlessly. We could not be happier with the photos; they looked like a dream! I still can’t believe this beautiful day happened, but now I have proof it did.” – B&A
Colour Palette: “Our colours were sage green, which emphasized nature, with soft peach and pink flowers. It was very dreamy!” – B
Theme: “Our theme was an enchanted fairytale wedding. We wanted it to be kind of like the scene in Hook where all the lost boys are imagining a feast, except real! A reunion of people we love, celebrating us in a setting that makes them feel like they have stepped into an enchanted forest.” – B
Biggest Challenge: “The biggest challenge was probably understanding everything that needed to be organized or booked. Online websites helped a ton to make checklists as well as due dates.” – B
Best Memory: “Sharing our vows with each other, that was a very special moment!” – B&A
Advice from one couple to another: “Make a checklist with due dates ASAP! You’ll be way more relieved once you get some structure going.” – B Click here for The Ring’s Ultimate Wedding Planning Checklist.
