Aleisha and Kavan – Charming Niagara Wedding at Stonemill Inn

Aleisha and Kavan – Stonemill Inn

Niagara Wedding Planner

Aleisha and Kavan had their wedding at Stonemill Inn in St. Catharines on October 24, 2015, making the best of a rainy day. Despite the gloomy weather, Aleisha and Kavan had their first look on the street right outside of their house, getting creative with some umbrellas. Being fall, the trees that lined the street were still turning and they got to take advantage of the beautiful colours. It was a very sweet moment between two people so in love.
The ceremony was held inside Stonemill Inn, and afterwards, guests travelled down the lovely striking staircase (which also made for some great photos) where they got a chance to enjoy cocktails on the venue’s charming main level. The reception was held in the elegant ballroom on the second floor. Along with the soft purple tones of the wedding, the room was illuminated by a lot of candlelight and the beautiful large chandeliers, adding a romantic feel to the atmosphere. This was particularly noticeable during Aleisha and Kavan’s heartwarming first dance, as they silenced the room (especially with Aleisha looking ravishing in her gorgeous mermaid style dress).
Many of the guests took advantage of the fun kissing game. The DJ brought a large inflated dice and there were entertaining rules established depending on the number rolled. Let’s just say that there were some great dance moves and Elvis impersonations. The dance moves got progressively more exciting after dinner, once the party began.
In lieu of physical favours, Aleisha and Kavan decided to contribute to a charity near and dear to Aleisha. She is so passionate about helping animals; they decided to make donations to the Lincoln County Humane Society.
It was such a pleasure to work with such a sweet couple, hilarious bridal party, and two lovely families.

Vicky & Chris at Inn on the Twenty

Vicky & Chris - September 4, 2015 - Inn on the Twenty

Romantic Winery Wedding 

Vicky and Chris had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on a lovely warm September day at Cave Spring Cellars. Along with the accompaniment of Frank from The Madhatters on guitar, the entire ceremony was filled with magical moments and the atmosphere was surrounded by genuine love and harmony. There were so many moments that would steal your heart, including an adorable flower girl and ring bearer adding in some chuckles for the guests. The romantic feel of the wedding was enhanced by the soft blush accents in all aspects of the wedding, such as the florals, bridesmaid dresses, and décor. These elements also added a touch of elegance.

While Vicky and Chris took advantage of the sunny weather for photos outside with Andrea’s Impressions Photography, guests headed to Inn on the Twenty to enjoy some wine and cocktails. After cocktails, guests were invited into the Windows room overlooking the beautiful escarpment. The entire night was full of emotion and laughs, especially in the speeches. Some of the best moments were the fun slideshows guests got to enjoy, of the silly moments of Vicky and Chris growing up and growing together in their relationship. It was evident that the two families coming together have an incredible bond and their kindhearted spirits and love for one another truly surrounded the room with incredible energy and a fun party to end the night!

It was a pleasure to work with such a beautiful couple, both inside and out.
