James and I met through mutual friends in 2005. We started out as acquaintances, only seeing each other every now & again at parties but we had so much fun together when we would see each other. Finally in 2007 he asked for my phone number and we went on our first date to the movies!
10 years later on December 2nd 2017 we were at home getting ready to go to my Nana’s 80th birthday lunch, I put on a small gold ring given to me by my deceased grandmother and James looked at it and asked, “Where did you get that ring from?” And I thought to myself “What a silly question, he knows this was my grandmothers ring” but I figured he had just forgotten! So I replied, “It was my grandma’s ring” and that’s when he got down on one knee and said, “Why don’t you try this one on instead” and pulled out a beautiful engagement ring! It was the most amazing moment, and I was so thrilled to be able to go to my Nana’s birthday and share the wonderful news with her the very same day!
Planning our wedding came very easy, I started out by going to the Burlington Wedding show with my stepmother Romaine, Maid of honour Genevieve & bridesmaid Kelly. It was there that I was introduced to Mario Mule at The Captured Memories Productions booth. I immediately loved his energy, he was so much fun to talk to & his photos were absolutely beautiful! He mentioned that he was the main photographer for the Milton Conference & Banquet Center in Milton Ontario, so we booked an appointment right away to go and take a look around. On our visit there James and I immediately knew it was where we wanted to get married, the grounds are private & so beautiful! They have many different areas for photos & they have wonderful wedding packages! So we booked right away!
The package we chose for our big day included everything we would need for our wedding. Una & her staff made everything so easy, they worked so hard all day! James and I didn’t worry about a single thing!
