Peterborough Backyard Wedding

CORY & DANIELA Backyard Wedding, Peterborough Ontario

The couple (Who are you, how did you meet and fall in love):

We first met at Boots & Hearts in 2013 and then went a few years without seeing each other again. We then were set up by friends in the spring of 2015. My sister knew that I had a thing for redheads and she kept pestering me about Cory. We met again at a friend's birthday and the rest is history.

Top 3 Best Moments during our wedding day and why:

1. Our first look. It was so special seeing each other before the ceremony. It calmed our nerves and made us just that much more excited to get married.

2. Our wedding ceremony. We had a small and intimate ceremony. All of our guests stood for the ceremony, our friends were playing music, and a friend married us.

3. The speeches. We had so much fun sharing memories during the speeches. There was laughter, tears, and so much love in the room. We also shared with everyone that we were expecting our son who was born January 23, 2020.

Piece of Advice for other couples planning their wedding:

Have fun. Celebrate your love. Make sure you slow down and enjoy your wedding day because it goes by so fast.
