Savanna – thank you for going above and beyond to make our wedding day so perfect. You were a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. I appreciated your timely response to all my questions and your willingness/flexibility to do what would make us happy. September 24th was perfect (and I’m not just talking about the weather). With your guidance, the Upper Canada Ballroom was transformed into the most beautiful reception area – I absolutely loved everything about the set-up. Once our guests arrived, the service was excellent. The food quality and presentation exceeded expectations and no one went long without a full drink in their hands. Overall, it really was the most perfect day and one I’ll remember forever. I will recommend the Pillar and Post to my friends and family (and colleagues for work functions), and some of the other vendors we chose…specifically Frank Krahan who was amazing on piano, Joel Hannigan, our wonderful photographer, and Simply Beautiful Decor.

LeeAnne and Joseph: smiles all around
I had yet to actually cry at a wedding (honestly…not trying to be a tough guy) but there was a time during LeeAnne and Joseph’s day that I was wiping away some tears. Mind you they were me from laughing historically during a reception speech. But still their day brought me to tears!
Needless to say LeeAnne and Joseph along with their wedding party (consisting of siblings) were a delight to work with. It’s hard to believe that a group of siblings could get along so well and have that much fun!
Our morning started at the Pillar and Post with the girls getting their hair and makeup done by the always great Allure Hair and Makeup. My 2nd shooter Calvin met Joseph and David at a house around the corner.
The two wed at St. Vincent de Paul in Niagara on the Lake. We shot portraits at various locations around the area highlighted by shooting with their getaway vehicle, a vintage Volkswagen Bug. The couple was comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. Their engagement shoot really paid off!
For the reception, we headed back to the Pillar and Post. The hall was masterfully appointed with countless personal touches. Each guest received a napkin with their full name embroidered in green stitching. The night was filled with so many laughs. Truly a great evening. Thank you for having me be apart of your special day! Congratulations LeeAnne and Joseph
