Bride & Groom: Malory Martin and Corey Conners

Wedding Date: October 20, 2018

Ceremony & Reception Location: Hacienda Sarria (haciendasarria.com) “I had my eye on this location after doing some research and seeing pictures. As soon as we walked in the doors and saw it in person, we were blown way. We wanted a unique and naturally stunning venue that could host every aspect of our day. Hacienda fit our vision perfectly.” – M

Colour Palette: Navy, wine and gold

Theme: “Romantic. We also incorporated a travel theme, since we travel often and have been to many places together.” – M

Flowers: The Flower Design Studio (flowerstudiodesigns.com) “We had soft pinks, wine, white and greenery in our flowers” – M

Décor: “Jackie from The Flower Design Studio also did my décor. We also used décor items from the Hacienda, such as the grand chandelier.” – M

Fav décor element: “The Hacienda is beautiful on its own and didn’t need a lot of décor. My favourite was the grand chandelier, greenery, and florals hanging from the balcony above our head table.” – M

DIY: “I made our travel themed seating chart. I wrote each guests name along with their table number on a luggage tag and hung them on a board. The tags also doubled as a favour as the guests got to take them home. We also had photos on display of us in each of the different places we have traveled to together.” – M

Ceremony Music:The Leith Quartet (facebook.com/leithquartet) performed ceremony music. I knew I wanted to walk down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” and their rendition was beautiful.” – M

Photographer: Brian Limoyo Photography (brianlimoyoweddings.com) “We met Brian at the Design Your Wedding Day Open House at the Hacienda Sarria. We loved his energy and passion from the beginning. He was a pleasure to work with the day of the wedding and the months leading up to it. His easy-going personality and humour made us all feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos felt natural and really captured all of the emotions and beauty of our day. We love to relive our wedding day through our photos and will cherish those memories forever.” – M&C

Biggest challenge: “The biggest challenge for us is that we were living in the United States while planning our wedding in Canada. Fortunately, we had an amazing wedding planner through the Hacienda Sarria who made sure every step of the planning process, as well as the day of, was smooth and stress-free. I can’t thank Ariana and the staff at Hacienda enough for making wedding planning from a distance easy and enjoyable!” – M

Fav wedding memory: “The best memory of our wedding was being introduced as Mr. & Mrs. from the balcony at the reception. Looking down at all our closest family and friends who were there to share our day with us was really special.” – M&C

Advice from one couple to another: “It’s your day so focus on the things that are most important to you and don’t stress about small details. Take time to really enjoy the day and the planning process!” – M&C
