{reality wedding story} An elegant fall love story | Stratford Country Club

BRIDE & GROOM: Alana and Nicholas Krzysztofik

WEDDING DATE: October 7th, 2017

LOCATION: Stratford Country Club (♥) (stratfordcountryclub.ca) Stratford, ON “From the minute I walked in, I knew it was exactly where I wanted to have our wedding. I loved how elegant the setting was with the chandeliers tied together with the wooden beams in the ceiling. I cannot say enough good things about Jessie and her team at Stratford Country Club. They were absolutely wonderful to work with!” – A

PHOTOGRAPHY: Justin Russo Photography (justinrusso.com), Kitchener, ON “Justin was the photographer at our friend’s wedding, and came highly recommended. My favourite part of the photos was his creativity and how he captured the day perfectly. He took photos of things I would not even have thought of which really helps in capturing the day as it goes by so quickly!” – A

THEME: “Our overall wedding theme was elegant fall, my favourite season! I love everything about it- the colours, the food, the weather.” – A

# GUESTS: 200

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “The biggest challenge was picturing everything coming together. You have so many elements (colours, florals, decorations) that you plan individually, it can be difficult picturing it all together.” – A

DJ: Nitro Music (♥) (nitromusic.ca), Kitchener, ON “They were amazing! I’ve had so many compliments and the dance floor was packed all night and everyone said ‘Nooo’ when he called the last song and the lights came on.” – A

ADVICE, ONE BRIDE TO ANOTHER: “Enjoy every moment- it goes by so quickly. Create a list of all the photos you want for your photographer. Leave yourself time to enjoy the week and especially the night before your wedding. Take time to relax and be with your fiancé before the craziness of the wedding day fast approaches.” – A
