Wedding Photos Featured on Equal and Forever Wedding Blog

I’m happy to say that Mariah and Natacha’s Lake Meech wedding photos were featured on Equal and Forever wedding blog. I loved the beautiful rustic touches of this beautiful wedding, which took place on the shores of Lake Meech in Gatineau Park in Gatineau, QC. A lot of DIY touches were put into this wedding, including that *GORGEOUS* birch ceremony arch made by Mariah’s brother.
I like what Mariah wrote about some aspects of their wedding, “We had unbelievable support from our family and friends who helped us with many DIY projects that added a very warm and personal touch to our setting. My brothers hiked into the woods to find birch logs and together, built our archway that we were married under. It was a labour of love.
The best advice we were given, was to make sure you and your partner take at least 10 minutes to step away in private and just be alone with one another. The day goes by in a flash, but those 10 minutes can last forever.
We were very lucky to hit our exact budget of $15,000. We saved a lot by doing DIY projects, but looking back now, we would not have taken on as much as we did. The last week leading up to the wedding was very busy and very stressful. It is a good idea to have a buffer of at least $1000 for last minute emergencies and unforeseen costs that usually arise the week before and day of the wedding.”
