Maureen & Matthew's Comic-Themed Wedding at the Glenerin Inn :)

Looking back at Maureen & Matthew's engagement session in the Distillery District that we did around Christmas last year, I noticed something: my first impression of the two of them was that they were super-snuggly, and couldn't stop laughing. So it should come as no surprise that their wedding day was full of laughter and kisses in almost equal measure :) These two super-fans share a love of many similar interests, so they decided to go with a couple of those when planning their wedding.. when I asked if they had a theme for the day, the answer was "Comics & Candy" - and there was lots of both! I think what really set the tone for the day was Maureen's spectacular silver Vans, and Matthew's Marvel-themed pair to match :) Here are some of the highlights of one of the sweetest and most fun weddings I've ever seen..
 The couple chose the Glenerin Inn in Mississauga as their venue - not only a beautiful set of buildings, but there was some gorgeous fall foliage surrounding the property :)
First Look: I love how palpable the anticipation is at this moment of the day! And I especially love both Maureen & Matthew's expressions when they first opened their eyes :) 

 The fantastic shoes, plus Maureen's bouquet included origami flowers that she had made out of comic book pages, and was wrapped in her grandmother's rosary - I love those personal touches!
We were then joined by the rest of the Bridal Party, plus the Moms of the Bride & Groom..
 And this guy! Too cute for words!!
Guests started to arrive for the ceremony shortly after..
I love this about Maureen & Matthew: even though they'd already seen each other, and had spent the last couple of hours doing photographs together, they still both burst into tears as soon
as their eyes met as Maureen came down the aisle :)
Maureen's nephew read an excerpt from Dr. Suess' "Oh! The Places You'll Go!", which was perfect :)
 After the ceremony, we snuck back out to do a few fun photos before dinner..
Maureen painted this Deadpool sign herself, and they also wrapped all the little candy-filled pots in comic pages. There was a table with bowls of candy lined up in a row, right next to the Jenga blocks that guests signed with their happy wishes. The Princess Leia & Darth Vader flutes
were made by Maureen's aunt :)

The top layer actually had a comic strip printed in icing, which was pretty awesome - and the cupcakes were Wolverine and Deadpool (both delicious!)

 It's a toss-up who had more fun - the kids or the grown-ups ;)
Maureen & Matthew: you two had a day that was entirely, perfectly, you. It was fun, and sweet, and heartfelt, and most of all, full of love :) We are so happy for you, and wish you many years full of more of the same!
