LOCATION: Best Western PLUS Stoneridge Inn & Conference Centre and The Rose Chapel (♥) (stoneridgeinn.com) London, ON “We chose The Rose Chapel because Darren and I have both been married before and we wanted to have the feel of a church. When we saw The Rose Chapel in person, we knew it was where we wanted to say our ‘I do’s’. It is absolutely beautiful! We are also regular customers at Pasto’s Grill restaurant located in the hotel; the food there is fabulous! All of our guests raved about our 5-course meal.” – D&L

BEST MEMORY: “The best memory of the day was walking down the aisle with my son, feeling so much love from all our guests and seeing my husband standing at the altar. Our officiant also included my 17-year-old son, Tyler, in our ceremony. On our wedding day, we became a family. It was a very touching moment with a lot of emotion.” – L
