Want to know the best way to start Thanksgiving weekend? By having a romantic City Hall wedding in Waterloo!

I think when a lot of people think of a city hall wedding they don’t associate it with the beauty and glam of a bigger wedding. These weddings tend to give off the “quicky wedding” vibe because they don’t usually involve a bridal gown, bridal party, many (if any) guests or a big venue. I am lucky enough to have a few couples this year and in 2019 who chose city hall to say their “I do’s” and I am so excited to work on changing this perspective. A wedding is a wedding and the main objective of the day is to say your vows and commit yourself to the love of your life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for a big fancy, full of details, wedding but something about these smaller days tugs at my heart strings. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that not only am I being trusted with one of the biggest days of your life but I was one of few people invited to witness such a beautiful moment.

I was so giddy when I saw Jenna walk in wearing a full wedding dress, perfectly done hair and makeup and carrying a crazy stunning bouquet. Even though they went small with the venue and the guest list they still made the day totally their own by doing exactly what they want. Jenna got to live her dream of feeling like a princess in a white dress and her and Bryan got to say their vows in front of their parents in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. They were also joined by their closest family and fur baby at Victoria Park to do some family photos before they all headed to a private dinner.

After 6 years of shooting weddings, my best advice is this…

Wear whatever you want, do whatever you want to do, where ever you want to do it with whomever you’d like to do it with. DO YOU!
