WEDDING DATE: July 28th, 2018

CEREMONY LOCATION: Holy Cross Catholic Church

RECEPTION LOCATION: Marquis Gardens Banquet & Convention Centre (♥) (marquisgardens.com) Hamilton, ON “I’ve worked there since I was 15. So not only was the space like a second home to me, I knew I trusted them to make my dreams come true.”- N

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY: AMV Weddings (amvweddings.ca) Hamilton, ON “I’ve worked with them in the past and I knew they were the perfect fit. We used them for both photo and video. One of the conditions when I booked the video was to not let the groom know about the videographers! So when the wedding day came, Dario had no idea that we had both photographers and videographers. It wasn’t until dinner was over that we played the same day edit. He was totally surprised and had no idea!” – N

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “The biggest challenge was planning everything in 7 months! We got engaged in December and planned our wedding for July.” – N

BEST MEMORY: “Our wedding was probably the best day of our lives. But if I had to pick (other than surprising Dario with the videographers), it would have been surprising all the guests with an ice cream truck during the late-night buffet. To be honest I was surprised too. I thought they were going to set up a table in the room, and then they pulled up in an ice cream truck! It was amazing!” – N
