Hello lovely readers,

Did you see Part 1 of this stunning wedding yesterday?

It was an amazing extravaganza of colourful bridesmaids and bouquets, stylish groomsmen and Kami's gorgeous lace dress and blue suede shoes combo. Now it's time for Part 2: The Ceremony and Reception.

Prepare to be inspired by all the creative, special touches, the beautiful florals and the amazing photography which captures the love and fun of Kami and Ryan's wedding day.

The Wedding Music: We had a lady play on the piano for our ceremony. For the reception, as a wedding gift, one of Ryan’s friends offered to DJ and he did a wonderful job.  It was so amazing to have all of our friends and family on the dance floor with us.  Also, our first dance was to our song of almost five years “Guardian Angel” by red jump suit apparatus.

The Photographer: Our photographer Laura Murray not only takes the most beautiful wedding photos, but helped coordinate a schedule for the day. She was a positive energy to have around and on point throughout the day and all the months leading to our big day.

Entertainment: During the reception we had a photo/prop booth, a couple’s video (which included photos of the both of us with all of our friends and family), a rainbow candy bar, wine, beer and a signature “bad bunny” cocktail, appetizers, dinner, cake and lots of dancing!

{WOW! This looks so bright, colourful and yummy!}

The Cake: Pretty much everything at our wedding besides the wedding party and the groomsman was white, ivory, gold and black… Including our five-tiered cake made by the Grand Hyatt. The cake was one-half carrot and one-half oreo cookie cake with a few thin black frosted swirls.

The Details: I love to paint so I made a variety of wedding themed paintings to decorate our cocktail hour and add a personal touch. Also, we had frames in our prop/photo booth to match our seating chart and cake topper.

{Such a lovely painting by Kami, inspired by their engagement shoot!}

Favourite Moment: What special moment will stay with you forever? It sounds cliché, but I think Ryan and I both agree that January 15, 2011 was the best day of our lives!  I always thought it would be, but I thought it would be because I am getting married and I’m the princess and I get my prince, etc… Instead it turned out to be the greatest day, because all of our family and friends was together to love and support us, how often does that happen? I realized this when started crying saying my vows and Ryan whipped it up for me. Then I made a joke and everyone started laughing. All the sudden I wasn’t nervous at all anymore. That’s when we both just knew how lucky we are to have each other and all of our friends and family together to celebrate!

Any Advice For Other Brides? Remember that this is one of the few days you will have all of your love ones together… so try to stay relaxed and do not take a second for granted!
