PHOTOGRAPHY: Anne & Carla at Anne Edgar Photography (♥)(anneedgarphoto.com) “Shortly after we booked the venue, I started looking at wedding magazines and started going to some wedding shows. I got a copy of the The Wedding Ring (Vol 10 No 02) magazine and saw Anne’s work in a styled shoot, which led me to look further into her work online. I was in love. Her work is spectacular, I wanted our wedding photos to be keepsake art.” L

(sentinealcarriages.ca) Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON “My parents gifted us with the horse and carriage for my arrival. It was so majestic! My mom said that every princess must have a horse and carriage, and she was so right. To go along with our theme of classic elegance with a modern twist, as a surprise for the groom I rented a 1968 Rolls Royce Austin Princess from Mermaid Luxury Limo (mermaidlimo.com) Hamilton, ON, as he loves vintage cars. He loved it!” – L

BEST MEMORY: “There’s so many! Taking photos as a married couple with our families and wedding party was a lot of fun.” – L “For sure mine was standing at the altar and seeing my bride’s silhouette through the glass doors (there was no first looks or breaking tradition on this point for me, I was about to see my bride in her dress for the first time) – This was not captured in a photo so it is a moment and memory all of my own that I will never forget.” – M
