{Reality Wedding Story} Vintage inspired love story | Chase Photography

BRIDE & GROOM: Nicole Maynard-Li & Theron D’Amico
WEDDING CEREMONY DATE: March 13th, 2018
CEREMONY LOCATION: TWH Social Bar & Bistro (twhsocial.com), Kitchener, ON “We chose our ceremony location because it was very easy to plan with the help of The Walper Hotel’s party planner Chynna who is amazing. We chose to split up our parties to keep the ceremony more intimate with only 25 guests. This made our ceremony stress free and gave us time to plan for the full reception at THEMUSEUM (♥) (themuseum.ca) Kitchener, ON in June 2018.” – N&T

PHOTOGRAPHY: Chase Photography (♥) (chasephotography.ca), Kitchener, ON “I was very lucky in terms of photography. I work with Janine from Chase Photography. When she heard we weren’t doing wedding photos she insisted she would do ours. She was beyond amazing and my family loved her! Never too bossy and just the right amount of direction, even I was able to smile properly (a constant issue in my family is that I always close my eyes).” – N

# GUESTS: 25 for the ceremony, 125 for the reception
BUDGET:$3000 for the ceremony, $12000 for the reception
THEME: “We didn’t have a wedding party or formal structure/setting so there was no theme. We did, however, want a vintage feeling to our attire and focused on a cocktail party feeling for the reception. During our reception party there was no formal dinner. We kept with the party theme and had canapés done by our friends at J&P Grocery (facebook.com/jandpgrocery) Kitchener, ON”- N&T

FLOWERS: Jerrica Li from Northern Flora (northernflora.ca) Clifford, ON “My sister is so talented and was able to make me a beautiful bouquet with all my favourite flowers, blue thistles, and even succulents. She also made me a floral belt to wear during the ceremony which matched my dress perfectly. She even designed all of the centrepieces which were an assortment of beautiful tropical plants in fancy cement pots to match THEMUSEUM’s industrial theme.” – N
BRIDE’S ATTIRE: Boutique 1861 (1861.ca) Montreal, QC
DJ: DJ Surreal (djsurreal.com) Waterloo, ON
HAIR: Control Hair (controlhair.ca) Waterloo, ON

ADVICE, ONE BRIDE TO ANOTHER: “In terms of helpful advice, I’d definitely recommend staying true to your style and each other. Don’t get caught up overthinking details and feeling guilty or stressed about things beyond your control and minor details that no one really remembers. Just remember that you and your partner are the most important part of your wedding, and if you`re not happy with what`s going on, than your special day won`t be very special. If you want two separate parties with a small intimate ceremony then go for it!” – N
