Stacia & Blair had a jam-packed crazy fun gorgeous wedding! And with the help of Rebecca from High Culture and other amazing vendors it was the perfect day for this beautiful couple. There was even a special appearance by the one and only Zach Galifanakis!!
The number one theme to this whole wedding was family. The way Stacia & Blair’s siblings and parents spoke about them at the reception brought tears to my eyes, and it was easy to see how these big families purely love each other.

Sigh. Thanks Stacia – I love when our brides have amazing shoes!
Blair is a firefighter, and his colleagues came to help celebrate!
Stacia incorporated Blair’s grandmother’s brooch into her bouquet. It was her old, borrowed, and blue!
These two are sexy and gorgeous. They made our job very very easy.
We stopped by Blair’s firehall for a few minutes…
Now, most brides wouldn’t be able to get a wall knocked down at a banquet facility for their wedding, but Stacia’s grandparents own the Chateau Louis Hotel & Conference Centre, and when they realized the ballroom wasn’t going to be quite big enough for Stacia & Blair’s reception, they knocked down the back wall and opened up the ballroom into the atrium. The rustic woodland decor was a beautiful backdrop for the fun-filled reception.
There were lots of tears and lots of laughter throughout the reception.
We wanted to mention a quick shout out to Social Photo Booths – they were set up at the reception and had lots of fun props! For any brides looking into a photo booth at their wedding, please check them out! (They didn’t ask us to say that, we really did have a great time in their booth!)
Remember I said there was a special appearance by Zach Galifanakis? He sent a video message to the couple – you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG5CIpHfFqc&feature=relmfu OK, so he kind of mispronounces their names, but it’s still hilarious. Stacia & Blair’s family and friends created some amazing videos for them that had the crowd in stitches – especially this one by Stacia’s cousin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hns7dBPbQog&feature=share
And lots of dancing! Stacia is part of the Ceremosh Ukrainian Dance Group, and this huge troupe managed to fit onto the dance floor at the Chateau Louis for some incredible performances. Two of the bridesmaids (including Stacia’s sister) performed as a part of the group as well!
Congratulations Stacia & Blair – your wedding was amazing and we were so glad to be a party of it! ‘Eh! Must be a wedding!’
