Mallory is extremely loveable. She is laid back, kind, and genuine. The morning preparations for her wedding day reflected her easy-going personality. There was no hustle and bustle, just friends and family living in the moment and taking in the happenings of the day. Towns Estates B&B put on a lovely spread for breakfast and assisted the girls with anything they needed. Once everyone was dressed and looking fabulous and we headed to John R Park Homestead for a few pictures before the ceremony.
Chris and his boys got ready for the day at his parents’ house. Their suits from 67 Richmond looked amazing on all the guys! One of the highlights of the morning was the gift opening. Mallory and Chris decided to exchange gifts, and as you can see below, Chris was blown away by Mallory’s thoughtfulness. We just love how they love each other!
The couple’s ceremony took place at Full Gospel Tabernacle in Leamington followed by wedding party photos at Willistead Park and a stunning reception at St. Clair Centre for the Arts. Their family-focused day was filled with heirlooms, Macedonian traditions, thoughtful details, and some of the best speeches we’ve ever heard.
Chris and Mallory, we are grateful not only to have shared your wedding day but to have gained two new friends in you both! You are clearly made for each other, and we are so happy that God has brought you together. We’re still waiting for a puppy playdate (*cough* Mallory, let Chris get a dog *cough*).

“My husband and I got engaged quickly after we began seeing each other so we hadn’t put too much thought into what we wanted the day to look like. Because we wanted to get married this year we knew we needed to move fast to book vendors but I had no idea that vendors wanted us to have our vision already together! Every vendor that I went to made me feel unprepared and that I was late to the game. I left feeling frustrated. That was not the case with Manifesto! When we met with Arica and Josh they did the opposite. Right off the bat they told us “If you don’t know the answers to these questions yet, don’t worry,” Right there I let out a huge sigh and felt myself relax. They asked us the fun, personal questions about us as a couple and made us feel comfortable, important and taken care of. They walked us through what their job was and why they could best fill our needs. We knew that we could trust them with our important day with no concerns. At our engagement session, they made it a meaningful experience. Their creativity blew us away! They were able to envision the settings, poses and props that would look natural yet like us. We felt like we were with friends who made us laugh yet ensured that us as a couple take the time to celebrate our upcoming marriage. Honestly I fully trust them! Already we have recommended them to friends knowing that they will not be disappointed in any area with Manifesto” – Mallory (& Chris)
