BRIDE & GROOM: Nicole & Joel Biviano

WEDDING DATE: October 5th, 2019

CEREMONY: St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica (cathedral.dol.ca) London, ON

RECEPTION: Best Western PLUS Lamplighter Inn (♥) (lamplighterinn.ca) London, ON “Joel and I wouldn’t have had such a perfect day if it weren’t for Claudia, Jessica, and the staff at the Lamplighter Inn. They answered all of our questions promptly and in great detail. Claudia went out of her way on our wedding day to make sure everything ran perfectly, and that we were well taken care of. We know that we made the right choice when booking our reception at the Best Western PLUS Lamplighter Inn. Our gratitude is unmeasurable.” – N

PHOTOGRAPHY: Kristine Marie Photography (kristinemarie.ca) Niagara Falls, ON “We found Kristine after searching through nearly a hundred photographers. Kristine was so friendly. She offered everything we had been looking for and made the process very easy. Joel and I were so comfortable with her, and she went the extra mile to capture our must-have photos.” – N


BUDGET: $35,000

THEME: “Our wedding theme was Autumn Fairytale. We love everything about the fall and I also love fairytales and sparkles. We thought why not combine them? The beautiful fall leaves looked gorgeous with our wedding colours; plum, lilac, mauve, and silver.” – N&J

DÉCOR: Bella Wedding Rental  (bellaweddingrental.com) London, ON “I first fell in love with Viktoria’s work while searching for decorators in the London, ON area. During our meeting, she showed us different decorations that would fit our theme and offered excellent suggestions. My favourite part was our backdrop! I provided Viktoria with a photo of a backdrop that I loved and she replicated it perfectly. It was so big and elegant and we loved looking at it the entire night.” – N

FLORAL: Time 4 Flowers  (time4flowers.ca) London, ON “We chose Rosemary from Time 4 Flowers after seeing her beautiful floral arrangements from previous weddings. After contacting her and sending her my vision board she created a montage of flowers for my bouquet and I was in love with the flowers.” – N

BRIDE + BRIDESMAIDS ATTIRE: David’s Bridal (davidsbridal.ca) London, ON

GROOM + GROOMSMEN ATTIRE: Moores Clothing for Men (♥) (mooresclothing.com) London, ON

HAIR: The Loft Hair Refinery (scissorkitty.com) St. Thomas, ON

MAKEUP: Blush (blushhmua.com) London, ON

CAKE: Grandma’s Oven Bakery (grandmasoven.ca) Aylmer, ON

DJ: Music Central Entertainment (♥) (musiccentral.ca) London, ON “This was one of the vendors on the top of our priority list, as we knew that a DJ can make or break a wedding reception. Rob went above and beyond our expectations and kept our dance floor packed the entire night. He sure knows how to read the crowd.” – N

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “Our biggest challenge was the fact that we live in Alberta and our wedding was in Ontario. It was very difficult at times when searching or booking vendors as we couldn’t always meet them in person. We had to fly to Ontario quite often to meet with vendors. We also had to reply on meetings over the phone or by email. We got through this added stress with the help of my mom and our amazing wedding party. We couldn’t have done it without their support.” – N&J
