When planning their wedding day, Stephanie and Mark didn't initially pinpoint exactly what the theme would be. Instead, the two decided to go with the flow and pick a style and colour palette that felt right for them. This led the the couple to pair neutral colours with splashes of blush pink and adorable Boston terrier details throughout. "I had to incorporate our dogs into the wedding in every way that I could so I decided to bake cookies and decorate them as Boston terriers," says Stephanie. "They weren’t perfect, as I am not a professional, but they were pretty darn cute!"
The couple decided to begin their celebration with first look photos. "We had our first look right outside our house, with our friends and family standing by as well as our fur-babies," says Stephanie. "It couldn’t have been more perfect."
Perfect was a recurring word that Stephanie and Mark use when describing their wedding day from beginning to end. Stephanie remembers sitting at the head table looking out at everyone having a great time. "It was such a beautiful and intimate venue with so much natural and simplistic beauty," she explains. "And having all of the most important people in our lives there made it so much more beautiful."
