Our day was beyond perfect!! I am SO beyond thrilled we ended up having a semi-elopement (only immediate family and a few close friends), the rest of our families don’t know yet.
I was SO relaxed on the day of, it helped that MrN & I were together until 11am on the day of the wedding. We woke up & went to Starbucks then walked down to the falls (we were in Niagara Falls, Ontario) then he popped into Tim Hortons for a breakfast wrap and I wandered into the gift shop. It was nice to have some time alone with MrN and to reflect on what the day meant to us. We then made our way back to the hotel (OMG for anyone going to Niagara Falls, the hills are killer!!) and relaxed a bit then at 11am my hair & make up lady showed up so MrN was kicked out to go down to his Best Man’s room (also my MOH’s room so she came up).
I got all pretty as did my Maid/Matron of Honor then my photographer/friend started clicking pics (she took a few while we were getting ready, I was too busy drinking pink bubbly to care), then she went down to MrN & his Bridesmaid or Best Man to snap a few pics & deliver a card I had for MrN and then she came back to me with a card from MrN and made me get dressed, took pics then allowed me to read the card which made me cry so hard I cried off my fake eyelashes!! then we did a picture where MrN is on 1 side of the wall and me on the other and reaching around to hold hands.
Then they guys left and we followed behind them to go to the ceremony ….
I’ll continue with another post as there are some funny incidents from arriving at the ceremony to during dinner.
Here are a few personal teaser pics (from family & friends).

@sweetchiquita12: We live in the GTA so it’s about 2 hours away but worth the trip.
We were looking at going for New Years Eve with our Best Man & Maid/Matron of Honor (they’re a couple) but the prices are insane! Same hotel we stayed in this past weekend is double the cost for 1 night vs 2 nights this weekend.

@MrsN2Be: I live in the GTA also..I guess the drive is 2 hours not 1 like I previously wrote..or I just drive too fast lol.
Yeah going there on New Years is a nono for us as it is MEGA expensive!! Whenever we go and sty there we stay from a Sunday to a Monday (always at the Hilton..I love the beds) because it is cheaper.

@Mrs Canuck: We had our ceremony at Two Hears Wedding Chapel, their website is out dated BUT it’s really pretty and the Reverend is so nice, the staff were all beyond helpful!! http://www.twoheartsweddings.com/
We had our dinner at Canyon Creek in Fallsview Casino, food was great, service wasn’t so great. I had to ask for a drink multiple times and over the course of 4 hours I only got 2 yet ordered 4, this was a complaint from all our guests http://www.canyoncreekchophouse.com/locations_niagara.php
My hair & make up (as well as my MOH’s) was done by Maegan of http://enchantmentmakeup.com/ she was GREAT! Came to my hotel & did a wonderful job + was resonably priced.
We stayed at Quality Hotel Fallsview, it’s been renovated recently. We stayed in a King room, 7th floor in the tower (room 701) and it was great, right across from the casino and 5min from the chapel! http://www.qualityhotelfallsview.com/
