BRIDE & GROOM: Allan Hodgins & Ally Quirk

WEDDING DATE: November 3rd, 2018

LOCATION: Boler Mountain (bolermountain.com) London, ON “When we went to Boler for the first time, we knew it was the place we wanted to get married – it was perfect! They were very accommodating in making sure our wedding was just the way we wanted.” – A&A

PHOTOGRAPHY: HRM Photography (♥) (hrmphotography.com) London, ON “We found HRM Photography by searching online and really liked their work. When we met Heather for the first time, she was so nice and personable. Her past work and awards speak for themselves, but the passion and energy that she brought to shooting our wedding (finding views and backgrounds in a new wedding location in London) was astounding.” – A&A THEME: “We really didn’t have a theme, it was just things that we liked. The colours were navy, antique white and burlap.” – A&A

# GUESTS: 170

FLORALS: Jim Anderson Flowers (jimandersonflowers.com) London, ON “Geraldine listened to what we wanted and went above and beyond. Ally really liked baby’s breath so she used baby breath and made it a bit more special by adding statice flowers. We had a ton of flowers and were so happy with them all.” – A

DIY: “We used Pinterest as our idea starter. Our parents stepped up and took our vision to a whole new level. Our favourite elements were the french doors from the family’s century-old farm home, Grandpa Ira’s cowboy boots, birch branch flower vases, our memory tree, and the head table.” – A&A

FAVOURS: “We made DIY personalized mini Heinz Ketchup Bottles. Ally has always loved ketchup on everything and thought the customized bottles would be great as favours.” – A

We may not get to see everyone as much as we’d like on a regular basis but being able to celebrate this day with them was incredible and something we will never forget.” – A&A
