Now that my season has calmed down, I can update my website with all the fun and beautiful memories I had the pleasure of capturing this year, including this Prince Edward County wedding at Crystal Palace.
Here’s what Brianna & Troy had to say about their big day:
1. Tell me your story / How did you meet?
Troy and I met in high school when my (Brianna) family moved to Prince Edward County. We were both in grade 11, but didn’t become friends until grade 12. It was at the end of grade 12 when we started officially dating. We spent the summer getting to know each other, and then were both off to Queen’s University to start our post secondary education. We were both in busy programs (nursing and engineering) but we ensured to prioritize our relationship. In third year, we got engaged! We were engaged 17 months before getting married on May 5th, 2018. We got married, moved cities, and graduated all in the same month!!
2. What was your favourite moment from your wedding day?
“When we reflect on our wedding day, it truly was the best day of our life. There were so many moments that were absolutely perfect! But one of our favorites is the dance. There was no more worry about having to make a speech, or not spilling food on my dress, we just got to dance with all of our best friends and family. It was the perfect ending to such a fun day!”
3. Do you have any wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples?
“Wedding planning at times was very stressful, as we were balancing wedding planning with finishing off our schooling. One thing looking back is I wish I would’ve enjoyed the moment more. I was so excited to get married that at times I wished time would go faster. Now looking back, I wish I would have enjoyed the moment more and not focused so much on our wedding count down (even though that is very hard to do!) Also, being organized is key. Troy and I used Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets to make sure we were both on the same page with the wedding planning. We also made sure that each vendor was on the same page by giving them wedding day schedules, and emailing them all the week before to go over any last minute details. Being organized is the best way to stay on top of wedding planning.”
4. How did you choose your wedding photographer?
“We could not have asked for a better photographer. Christine made us feel so comfortable right from the very first meeting. She is talented, and it was so stress free for us knowing that she had it all under control. She ensured that she was in communication with us about what photos we wanted, and then surpassed all of our desires. When we got our photos back it was like we were re living the day. We were looking for a photographer that had experience, specifically with doing weddings. We made sure to look at the other weddings she had shot. We liked her style, and how she was able to capture pictures that were not necessarily posed. We are so blessed with photos that we absolutely love and are so excited to share with all of our family and friends.”
