BRIDE & GROOM: Melanie & Paul Morin

WEDDING DATE: August 11th, 2018

LOCATION: Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn (♥) (lamplighterinn.ca) London, ON “Choosing this venue came easy to us. During my mom’s battle with cancer, while receiving treatments at London Health Sciences Centre, we spent some of our time making memories together at the Lamplighter. The Lamplighter holds a very special place in our hearts and when there, I not only feel my mom’s presence but it feels like home.” – M

The way Julie captures your special day, allows you to relive it over and over as they depict your journey perfectly. We look forward to sharing these pictures for years to come.” – M

BEST MEMORY: “One that stands out in my mind was at our ceremony. During our indoor ceremony in the Atrium at the Lamplighter a small white butterfly flew in between my now husband and I. This is a very important symbol to Paul and I as after my mom’s passing, butterflies have been a sign from above that she is with us on our life journey.” – M
